Out Of This World 289: 17/11/14

 Šuma are featured again this week. This song "Dy Hula Pcholka" is one of the lead singer Rusia's favourites. It is the story of a widow who has to take care of her life on her own (which was hard in old times). She is comparing herself to a hardworking bee. But whereas the bee life is nice and honey is sweet,  for the widow it is all the opposite. Firewood is wet and food is not nice. She sings: and my food is bitter from now on because you are not with me anymore, my love.

What a touching story! Hope you like it!

Out Of This World 287: 03/11/14

Another episode featuring Šuma from Belarus; The song Husanki is a song from a wedding ceremony and it was sung when the bride was about to be taken away from her mother's house.  "letely husanki" means " two ducks were flying" and these ducks tell the girl to gather presents because very soon she is going to be a wife. The girl says how much her father was taking care of her but she is asking for more from her brothers and sisters. That was a tradition to give the bride lots of things and presents to help support her future family. The girl is gently inviting her rich relatives to join the tradition. Hope you like it!

Out Of This World 286: 27/10/14

This week, we have Šuma from Belarus featured at the beginning of the episode. A bit about the song.
The song Edu Ja Darohaju is  a summer harvest song. It is about a woman. She is walking down the road and singing loud with hope that someone will hear her voice and will have compassion towards her. In old Belarus, people would use "to have compassion towards a person" instead of "to love a person". She is singing and tells us how lonely she feels. Her mother is calling her for dinner but the woman says "I am not hungry, I am already full up with tears, mother. I need someone to be in love with because I feel unhappy".
 This story is devoted to love and harvest in both senses (harvest that we take from the Earth and harvest that we gather from our relations with other people). There will be more next week. Peace to all!
