PostSubject: For Betelguese - a song from the homeland   13th July 2010, 10:09 pm

Recently, I've bumped into this amazing performance of an old folk song from Bosnia. It's one of the most famous "sevdah songs" or "sevdalinka", as we say that in Serbian. Here, in the Balkans, everybody likes this song: the Bosniaks, the Serbs, the Croats, the Macedonias... I hope you'll like it, too!

Serena, you probably won't like this!

Ah Xan, thank you!
I know sevdalinka and this one is a great version bom Actually 'sevda' is an alternate word for 'aşk' that means love in Turkish, and I'm sure I've heard Turkish versions of sevdalinka with a deep balkan accent Laughing
Thank you again, I'd like to find some more videos to put up here but I'll need more time I guess king

I know the word 'aşk', but in Serbian we pronounce it like "ashik". There's even a verb "asikovati" which means "to flatter, to court somebody". Being in Turkey, I actually realized I know many words like, for instance, ashik, aksham, dzehenem, dzenet, jastuk (an archaic word), hallal, mashallah, yok (ha-ha), javash, etc. Actually, it's tiring because the list is very long.

I can help you find the sevdalinka videos. I know who best Bosnian performers are/were.

Ahah I remembered the note that was on 'The Bridge on the Drina', it's said that to translate it into Turkish was the easiest translation because of the common words; some parts were never changed

If you come across any traditional songs when you're browsing, it's very welcome just post it, lady!

Very Happy I think I never heard the original version, though :oops: r=orange]Maybe because this kind of music is totally unknown to you (or , at least, I suppose so) and that's why you might find it a bit strange. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean that you don't like the music. I'm glad I'm wrong.

Hahah, well, no worries, I love discovering new stuff Very Happy
The strange thing is that, from a side, the very beginning of the song reminded me of something I already knew... but then, it was completely different Laughing still, good one Very Happy
