LA BALANGUERA: NATIONAL ANTHEM OF MAJORCA / HIMNO DE MALLORCA

La Balanguera is the anthem of Majorca. It is an adaptation of Joan Alcover i Maspons's poem based on an ancient and popular Majorcan children's song. The lyrics were composed by Amadeu Vives and in November 1996 the Consell Insular de Mallorca made it the anthem for the Island.   La Balanguera es el himno oficial de Mallorca. Es una adaptación del poema de Joan Alcover i Maspons que a su vez se había servido de una antigua y popular canción infantil mallorquina. La música es obra del compositor catalán Amadeu Vives y en 1996 el Consejo Insular de Mallorca lo elevó a himno de la isla.

La Balanguera (Català)
La Balanguera misteriosa,
com una aranya d'art subtil,
buida que buida sa filosa,
de nostra vida treu lo fil.
Com una parca bé cavil·la
teixint la tela per demà
La Balanguera fila, fila,
la Balanguera filarà.

Girant l'ullada cap enrera
guaita les ombres de l'avior,
i de la nova primavera
sap on s'amaga la llavor.
Sap que la soca més s'enfila
com més endins pot arrelar
La Balanguera fila, fila,
la Balanguera filarà.

De tradicions i d'esperances
tix la senyera pel jovent
com qui va un vel de noviances
amb caballeres d'or i argent
de la infantesa qui s'enfila
de la vellura qui se'n va.
La Balanguera fila, fila,
la Balanguera filarà

La Balanguera (English)
The mysterious Balanguera,
as a subtle art spider,
empties that it empties her distaff
and takes out the thread of our lives.
As a Parca well ponders
weaving the cloth for tomorrow
The Balanguera spins, spins,
the Balanguera will spin.

Turning her glance to the past
she guards the shades of ancestry
and of the new spring
she knows where the seed is hidden.
She knows that the vine-stock climbs up higher
the deeper its roots can go
The Balanguera spins, spins
the Balanguera will spin.

From traditions and from hopes
she weaves the flag for the youth
as who prepares a wedding veil
with hairs of gold and silver
of the childhood that grews up
of the old age who goes away
The Balanguera spins, spins,
the Balanguera will spin

La Balanguera (Español)
La Balanguera misteriosa,
como una araña de arte sutil,
vacía que vacía la rueca,
de nuestra vida saca el hilo.
Como una parca que bien cavila,
tejiendo la tela para mañana.
La Balanguera hila, hila,
la Balanguera hilará.

Girando la vista hacia atrás
vigila las sombras del abolengo,
y de la nueva primavera
sabe donde se esconde la semilla.
Sabe que la cepa más trepa
como más adentro puede arraigar.
La Balanguera hila, hila
la Balanguera hilará.

De tradiciones y de esperanzas
teje la bandera para la juventud
como quien hace un velo de bodas
con cabellos de oro y plata
de la infancia que se sube
de la vejez que se va
La Balanguera hila, hila,
la Balanguera hilará
