History and sentiment behind song

Iemanjá is one of the most important “orixas” from the Afro-Brazilian religions Candomblé and Umbanda. She can be thought of as the Goddess/Spirit/Queen of the Sea, and is often represented as a mermaid, or a beautiful woman dressed in blue. She is the patron spirit of fishermen and the shipwrecked, goddess of birth and creation, and the spirit of moonlight.
