Author's comments:

The "bull" he's singing is related to the folk characters of Parintins's Festival, boi Garantido e boi Caprichoso ** "caboclos" = here can mean the native men/indians but not exclusively ** "de fora" is used to qualify something that came from a region outside the region/state/country the speaker is. Here, people come from all places - from Brazil and abroad - to see the Festival ** "Rio-mar" means a river that looks like a sea/ocean

More precisely, "caboclo"* refers to someone of mixed Brazilian indian and white races. However, this word is also informally used to refer to people of any "race" that live in the rivers of the Amazon Basin.

*: "cabocla" for woman.
