About the Song
Kobe means “heart” in Warao language.
Davi Kopenawa, the shaman of the Yanomami people in Brasil, once said:
“When we’re working, or when we’re walking, we sing all the time. We never forget to sing.”
Music is a universal language of all nations, tribes, and societies. With that in mind, Indigos started a campaign last year with a song to raise awareness of Indigenous Peoples and their cultures, knowledge, and threats they are facing worldwide.
The song is called Kobe Kobe Amazonia, refrain is sung in the Indigenous language of the Warao people from the Orinoco River. So far, it has been released in English, Spanish, and Czech languages, with following translations coming soon.
The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness about Amazonia forest fires and their causes and consequences, including:
- The decimation of pure Amazonian nature, wiping out animals and destroying land, of which Indigenous are part for millenniums
- Alarming emissions of CO2, which we will all breathe and for which we will pay in the future
- Indigenous peoples are victims of greed, corruption and race for profit.
We challenge all musicians and singers to join Indigos and make their version of the song, and everyone who cares about our planet’s future to support Indigos by sharing:
