Biography

Chapa Dux is a band from Sintra, Portugal, with a sound strongly marked by the balance of Reggae, the vivacity of Ska and the consciousness of Dub jamming.

This junction of rhythms has been explored since 2008 by its 8 band members who grew up influenced by different music styles.

Its most recent work, Infinitree, released in July 2011, took a year to develop from seed to fruit, featuring some of the biggest names in the national scene as Papa Juju of TerraKota and Kiko of Kumpania Algazarra. Our songs talk about the current society common problems, transmitting a strong message of union. The energy contained within the sound of change was the main reason to engage with our fans in the beginning.

With only 3 years, the band has already played on some of the biggest national music festivals, alongside with lots of gigs in other small and iconic venues.

Lyrics

Fight

Written By: Di

I believe in the place, were the future is bright
Yesterday... appear de me a sight!
There is no fight up in my place,
My brother you can come,
If you want no disgrace,
Chapa Dux is not a strange.
The sheep lead the Sheppard…
And the Sheppard lead the sheep.
They are looking for the same sunshine
Where the grass is green!!!
And you can find it, in all the corners
And you can find it, following no orders
Where there is land to grow!!!
So I am…
SO I AM…………
Chorus:
Grooving…
I’m here to decide
Feeling…
Trust in I & I

Politicion

Written By: Di

Politician! forbid the mari, mari, mari
Politician! They want money and money

Verso:
I didn’t vote for you
I vote for I & I…
I expect you to do more
But you never do the things right.
I’m sick and tired off all this crazy rulers,
All trying to full us,
In to their games!
POLITICIAN… Stop with the orders,
POLITICIAN… You can´t keep me in borders,
POLITICIAN… Stop living in Wonders,
POLTICIAN… We are people not numbers,
You have been elected to defend
The interest of people that you represent.
But in the end all that we see…
IS YOUR ACCOUNT MOVEMENT MORE IMPORTANT THAN ME!!!
