I propose to start every new week with a song that takes us somewhere in the world.
Today I’m taking you to Bulgaria where I spent the past week, with a great tune by Oratnitza, an ethnobass band that describes its mission as to “interpret Bulgarian traditional songs in a way which our generation can truly embrace”.
I bought their CD in Sofia a few days ago, and believe me, in the traffic jams going back to work today, their music was a truly welcome distraction!
The song Zhelkya is described in the CD’s box as follows:
A moral lesson on why a hedgehog should never kiss a turtle and on what you reap is what you sow.
Happy new year, and have a great week!
This post is part of a weekly event called The Monday Travel song. You can participate, too, by doing the following:
- Create your own post every Monday and title it The Monday travel song: xxx by xxx
- Include a link to a song (YouTube link or other)
- It must be a song which is linked to a geography. For example, a Russian song, a Chinese song, a Scottish song… (it can be from your own country every now and then, but remember the purpose is to get others to virtually travel!)
- Your post doesn’t have to be long, but do tell us a little bit about the song… for example by telling about the lyrics, about the composer, about the style…
- Include a link to my own Monday travel song in your post tag it “Monday-travel-song” so others can find it too
