Where does the word Monano comes from?
The word Monano comes from a festive kid's folk song that Claudia (one of the directors of the program) learned when she was a kid from an indigenous girl named Lucila.
"Monano, Monano, Monano no está aquí
se fué al jardín, a coger las flores de Mayo y de Abril,
Y quien es ese bulto que anda por ahi?,
De dia y de noche no deja ni dormir
--ponche de noche
Daremos media vuelta por el perejil
a ver si el Monano puede revivir"
It's about a little monster/ghost that appears at the garden to pick up flowers and parsley. It was a little bit spooky, funny and folky at the same time. After Lucilla finished the song they laughed together and started to remember more songs and tales from the rainforest. Their minds played different scenarios, created more characters and tales. It was just a magical moment that they shared.
