Angola Avante

Angola Avante! (Forward Angola!) is the national anthem of Angola. It was adopted in 1975 upon independence from Portugal.

Portuguese Lyrics O Pátria, nunca mais esqueceremos
Os heróis do quatro de Fevereio.
O Pátria, nós saudamos os teus filhos
Tombados pela nossa Independência.
Honramos o passado e a nossa História,
Construindo no Trabalho o Homem novo,
(repeat previous two lines)

Angola, avante!
Revolução, pelo Poder Popular!
Pátria Unida, Liberdade,
Um só povo, uma só Nação!
(repeat chorus)

Levantemos nossas vozes libertadas
Para glóriados povos africanos.
Marchemos, combatentes angolanos,
Solidários com os poroso primidos.
Orgulhosos lutaremos Pela Paz
Com as forças progressistas do mundo.
(repeat previous two lines)

O Fatherland, we shall never forget
The heroes of the Fourth of February.
O Fatherland, we salute your sons
Who died for our Independence.
We honor the past and our history
As by our work we build the New Man.

Revolution through the power of the People!
A United Country, Freedom,
One People, one Nation!

To the glory of the peoples of Africa.

In solidarity with oppressed peoples.
We shall fight proudly for Peace
Along with the progressive forces of the world.
