A Traditional Livonian Folksong:
From video Intro:
Where are You Headed, Crooked Cap? (folk song - game)
ENGLISH TRANSLATION of the LYRICS:
Where are you heading to, ye crooked cap?
I'm going to the pub to drink some beer,
To dance with young maidens
Dance, dance, ye elder's wife!
A pig has eaten yer loaf of bread
A goat has broken yer mirror!
From video intro:
Under the name Tai tai some experienced folk-musicians with a special interest in the Finno-Ugric musical heritage have come together. Though this group was formed quite recently, the musicians are active playing in many different groups and projects in Latvia and Estonia. „We are searching for harmony while living in between ancient traditions and the modern everyday life. Music unites us, as well as friendship and knowledge about our heritage. Tai tai expresses our love for Livonian, Vote, Estonian, Latvian traditions."
Very cool version of a Livonian lullaby by a band called Tulli lum - Hot Snow.
