Natal 71 is the name of a record offe­red to the mili­tary at war in Por­tu­guese colo­nies that year. O Can­ci­o­neiro do Niassa is the name of an audio cas­sette, recor­ded secre­tly by the mili­tary over the years of war in Mozam­bi­que. The tape is the voice of outrage. The record is a piece of nati­o­na­list pro­pa­ganda. These are memo­ries of a clo­sed, poor and igno­rant coun­try, dor­mant due to the mel­low and pri­mary pro­pa­ganda that tried to hide all con­flicts, and that pre­ven­ted us from thin­king and recog­ni­zing the cruel and repres­sive nature of the regime in which we lived. Today we carry in silence, those memories.
