The song of January: How far I'll go

Tra tutti gli impegni di gennaio, mi sono accorta di non aver ancora parlato dell'English song scelta da Margherita.
Questo  mese siamo tornate al mondo Disney, dopo la visione dell'ultimo film, Oceania.
Vaiana, Maui ed il loro mondo lontano e colorato, la Polinesia, hanno subito incantato tutti i bambini che, ognuno a modo proprio, si sono buttati a capofitto nella rielaborazione giocosa/artistica del cartone.
Alcuni progetti sono tuttora in corso per cui ve ne parleremo prossimamente.
Intanto, ecco la canzone-motto di Vaiana (Moana in inglese e molte altre lingue), scelta da Margherita. 
Ecco un paio di video, con e  senza testo:


Margherita è quindi andata a tradurre il testo:
The song of January
HOW FAR I’LL GO
I've been standing at the edge of the water
'Long as I can remember, never really knowing why
I wish, I could be the perfect daughter
But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try
Every turn I take, every trail I track
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know, where I can not go
Where I long to be
See the line where the sky meets the sea it calls me
And no one knows
 how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I'll know, if I go there's just no telling how far I'll go
I know, everybody on this island seems so happy on this island
Everything is by design
I know, everybody on this island has a role on this island
So maybe I can roll with mine
I can lead with pride, I can make us strong
I'll be satisfied if I play along
But the voice inside sings a different song
What is wrong with me?
See the light as it shines on the sea? It's blinding
But no one knows
 how deep it goes
And it seems like it's calling out to me, so come find me
And let me know what's beyond that line, will I cross that line?
See the line where the sky meets the sea it calls me
And no one knows
 how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I'll know
 how far I'll go.



Abbiamo poi cercato, elaborato e tradotto oralmente alcune informazioni sul brano trovate in rete:

"How Far I'll Go" is a song from the 2016 feature film, Moana. It is sung by Moana as a lament for being drawn to the ocean despite her father's wishes. After mulling it over, she decides to try sailing beyond Motunui's reef, but fails shortly after. Later on, after Gramma Tala passes away, Moana decides to go through with her dying wish and sets out to find Maui.
For the soundtrack, Disney wanted to combine traditional South Pacific culture with pop and Broadway sensibilities, which led to the hiring of Broadway playwright, songwriter and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, composer Mark Mancina and Samoan singer-songwriter Opetaia Foa'i. The trio worked together in New Zealand and in Los Angeles.
The soundtrack contains seven original songs, two reprises, and two end-credits versions of songs from the film. Mancina composed the score and produced both the score and the songs. In addition to guitars and strings, the score features Polynesian vocals and percussion, woodwinds made from bamboo from the South Pacific, and traditional hide-covered Tyka drums.
"How Far I'll Go" appears during the film performed by actress Auli'i Cravalho, and during the end credits performed by Alessia Cara. A music video for Cara's version of the song was released on November 3, 2016.
It reached number 88 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week of December 17, 2016. South African singer Lira and Filipino singer Janella Salvador recorded two English-language versions of “How Far I’ll Go” that will play over the end credits on the South African and Filipino release of the film, while Indonesian singer Maudy Ayunda and Malaysian singer Ayda Jebat recorded their own versions of the song respectively in Indonesian and Malaysian language.
At the 74th Golden Globe Awards, "How Far I'll Go" was nominated for Best Original Song.

Anche questo mese, Margherita ha imparato subito a  memoria la canzone, aiutata da Lyricstraining.com.

Infine, un grande ritratto di Vaiana ad acquerelli (i colori non rendono in foto...)
