MUSIC: Folk Songs like of Bihar / UP (INDIA) in EUROVISION 2012


THIS YEAR'S EURO VISION 2012 2ND WINNER REMINDS ME OF OUR VILLAGE FOLK SONGS FROM UP / BIHAR AS WELL AS ONE FROM BULGARIA
______________

Yesterday night Buranovskiye Babushki (meaning "Buranovo Grannies") won second place in the prestigious Eurovision Song Contest (Sweden's Loreen won the first place). These old beautiful ladies, did not know the English lyrics but said that it was easy for them to sing. Its a lovely song and I loved it, more than the winner as it reminded me of our own village songs that my own grandmother, and family used to sing while doing daily chores or doing some community things like harvesting, community cooking or festivals/marriages.

(Buranovskiye Babushki is a Russian ethno-pop band containing eight elderly women. Buranovskiye Babushki represented Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan. The band consists of eight "grandmothers", but only six were allowed to appear on the Eurovision stage. They are from the village of Buranovo, Udmurtia, halfway between the Volga and the Urals in Russia. The band performs most of their songs in the Udmurt language.)





Their initial notes of the song reminded me of another very powerful folk song by Valya Balkanska known for singing the song "Izlel e Delyu Haydutin", part of the Voyager Golden Record selection of music included in the two Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977. You must listen to Nevena Tsoneva's singing at the final of Eurovision 2007 singing that very powerful song by Balkanska...
