“Liberatevi (Free Thyself)” by Shideh Massai & Anis Mirra

August 1, 2021, in Music > Studio Session, by

Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Genoa, Italy with Shideh Massai and Anis Mirra singing “Liberatevi (Free Thyself)” in Italian, based on a talk by Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in Genoa, Italy, April 2018.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the chords:

Lyrics & Quote

ITALIAN

Non lasciate che le cose materiali di questo mondo si impadroniscano dei vostri cuori; non ve ne state inerti, cullati nella negligenza, prigionieri della materia; ma alzatevi e liberatevi da queste catene.

Abdu’l-Baha

ENGLISH

I earnestly exhort you: let not your hearts be fettered by the material things of this world; I charge you not to lie contentedly on the beds of negligence, prisoners of matter, but to arise and free yourselves from its chains!

Abdu’l-Baha

Chords

Repeat: F#m D A E

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
