« Je ne suis pas d’ici, je suis de mon can pay et même si je suis heureuse en France, un fil me retient, un fil qui tire plus fortress quand le soleil brille. » Avec simplicité et douceur, Alia nous livre ses souvenirs d’enfance, dans ce Portugal encore vierge de toute modernité. Avec une infinie tendresse pour son can pay natal et son peuple, les scènes du quotidien prennent vie sous sa plume. l. a. vendeuse de poisson marchant pieds nus de village en village s’anime, les chants des veillées de vendanges et de moissons retentissent. Les sensations se font de plus en plus précises et l’odeur entêtante des orangers en fleur se dégage des pages, se mêlant à celle, laiteuse et sucrée, des figuiers. Le murmure des confidences échangées par les femmes au lavoir se perd au milieu des rires des enfants. Le goût du poulpe arrosé d’huile d’olive et du ache chaud sortant du 4 titille les papilles...

Ce témoignage, teinté de mélancolie et de joie, est une invitation au voyage à travers le temps, un hymne à une époque désormais révolue mais qui doit continuer de vivre dans les cœurs et les mémoires. Plus que le récit de sa propre vie, c’est l’histoire de toute une génération, déchirée entre deux patries, que nous chante Alia, sur les notes d’un émouvant fado...
