Sari Gelin - Traditional Turkish Song
www.youtube.com
Sari Gelin (Armenian: Սարի Աղջիկ Sari Aghjik), (Azerbaijani: Sarı Gəlin/ساری گلین), (Turkish: Sarı Gelin) is the name for a number of folk songs popular among the people of the southern Caucasus and eastern Anatolia. All versions of the song use the same melody and are written in Bayati genre; but sing different lyrics. Despite Turkish and Armenian claims, there is no consensus about its country of origin. "Sari gelin" is a blonde tall girl from the mountains. depending on the lyric language "Sari" means "Blonde, fair [skinned], yellow [garment] or mountain" And "Gelin" means "bride, maiden or girl". These attributes are also addressed in the lyrics. What the versions have in common, is a boy complaining to/about a girl he loves but cannot achieve. The combination of Armenian, Turkish and Azerbaijani version parallels is the laments of a Muslim Turk (language of both Azerbaijan and Turkey) boy, about a Christian Armenian blond maiden from a mountain or valley, that he loves, although they are kept apart, and the "unkind" girl is taken away, causing the boy to lament and curse frequently.

It's interesting to learn that so many different people have their own versions of the same song! How beautiful!
