Welcome. Flavia & the Motonets have worked it all out.

Armchairs are soft, yes. But we won't stay anywhere. We'll travel. Today we don't want to have control of anything. We get carried away.

Butterflies, bus drivers, small fish, fruit, tomato men, kids & friends will take us to a colourful world, jumping to one cloud to the other, with graceful, harmonic and floating movements. A simple world with happy endings but not a stupid world.

And there we are, travelling, awakening the sleepy memories' neuron. Songs to spin over the floor, to make silly faces, pirouettes, somersaults and, obviously, to sing. Those who live in London will feel the sunshine in their faces again. It may look like a dream, but it's not. Flavia takes us and guides us. We've got no choice, but we feel free, plenty and a bit like children. That's the time when we feel that a friend takes us by the hand and doesn't let us go for about nine minutes.

Pecesito (Little Fish)

In a dream I've met a little fish
who got wings in his mind
He used them to fly so far
Slowly he slept & faded away.

I want you to meet my friend little fish
He'll tell you and will teach you how to fly
He taught me, and now I'm flying
Let him teach you
And all together in the water float


 

Arcoiris (Rainbow)

Where are you rainbow?
We want to see your colors
Pink and blue
The colors of the flowers

We want to ride a bike
and see your beautiful colors
Yellow and orange
The colors of the flowers

To the land
where the sun always rises
Tell the bus driver
to take you there
To the land
where everything is colorful
I want to go
and never never return


 

Mariposa (Butterfly)

When my butterfly flies
she is the most beautiful thing
When she gathers nectar on a flower
I try to catch her

She flies across the land
She doesn't know about me
She doesn't know
that when she flies
she makes me happy

Oh! How happy I am
with my butterfly

And I've got a secret
that I won't tell you
Because if I tell you
we'll break down & cry

I don't wanna cry
because of my butterfly

She flies across the land
She doesn't know about me
She doesn't know
that when she flies
she makes me happy

Oh! How happy I am
with my butterfly


 

Hombre Tomate (Tomato Man)

Mr. Ramires's daughter
was asked to pick up a tomato
She went to the prettiest plant
(of course, she had to get down on her knees)

The vegetables became speechless
and the fruit also cried
when that green lettuce
took the tomato to the train

Tomato Man!
Tomato!
Man!

Tomato Man!
Tomato!
Man!

Please, don't you go away with the salad!
Tomato Man!
Please, don't you go away with the salad!
Tomato Ma-a-a-n!
Please, don't you go away with the artichoke
