ASK A QUESTION In the song "Magdalena" by Brandon Flowers... one of the lines is "Prodigal sons and wayward daughters carry mandas that they might be delivered from the depths of darkness..." What is a manda? Or what does it mean, to "carry mandas"?
Spanish references in pop culture -- music, song lyrics.
I looked up the song lyrics and it is mandas. According to the SD dictionary it can mean legacy left in a will. I don't know if that was the writer's intent. Maybe an offering of some kind.
a manda is like a promise you do, for a "favor" that you receive from a saint, for exemple you promise go on your knees to the church if one of your family get well from a disease.... that's a kind of manda
