“Elogio a Instituição Do Cinismo” translates as “Praise the Institution of Cynicism”, and is largely a critique of society, more so than of human nature. Going as far as saying “you do not look in the eye / and when you do it’s just to deceive” explains much of the focus below the nose and eyes throughout the music video.
“Elogio a Instituição Do Cinismo” is an oxymoron in itself, much less ‘praise’, much more ‘cynicism’ in society treating its members as means far more than ends in themselves.
Boogarins have two exciting pieces of news to accompany their release: 1.) In February, they’ll be making their first U.S. appearance at SabertoothPDX & 2.) They have a giveaway for a free, hi-res (likely FLAC) version of “Elogio a Instituição Do Cinismo” starting NOW on their Bandcamp page.
