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!
