Beli Buba, Beli (acapella)

Listen to song  From the charity compilation in progress Haiti Aid Through Music, this track is by Andrea Gerak
Traditional Hungarian lullaby from Magyarszovat (Suatu), a village in Transylvania with mostly Hungarian inhabitants
Last song of Andrea’s brand new solo album Erre gyere, rózsám! (This Way, Sweetheart!)

“The enigmatic Hungarian female voice” Andrea Gerak experiments with traditional songs, mainly with those coming from her country, approaching them from different angles. In many corners of the world, the name and of course, first of all the voice of Budapest and Stockholm based singer equals Hungarian folk song. With Irish, Turkish, Bulgarian and other folk tunes, she takes the listener to other lands as well, even to such exotic places as the Solomon Islands. Traditional, new age or acapella interpretations: mystery, magic, beauty, supernatural embraced in her timeless songs.

“Enya, Sally Oldfield, Lisa Gerrard, Marta Sebestyen, Katalin Szvorak, Iren Lovasz, Bea Palya, to mention only a few names amongst which Andrea Gerak has a well deserved place.” – Instrument and Music Online (Hungarian)

“The Hungarian voice that will keep one excited. Without fear, she experiments with traditional subjects, mainly with those coming from her country, approaching them from different angles. Nothing resists her; neither new age, nor world fusion, nor a cappella interpretations…
Without a doubt, if you like folk music as well as experimental tunes, Andrea Gerak will capture you with her hipnotic vision of music…”
– Sobre Las Aireadas Olas

“This artist equals in skills and talent with one of today’s most requested voices known from the movie The Gladiator and the band Dead Can Dance… Her name is Lisa Gerrard.” – Mortesium

Szöveg / Lyrics

Beli buba, beli, beli, kicsi kutyasággal teli,
Beli buba a párnára, kicsi kutya a szalmára,
Beli buba, beli, beli, kicsi kutyasággal teli,
Beli buba a párnára, kicsi kutya a szalmára,
Aj-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

Beli buba, nincsen papa, elment tátá a malomba,
Hazahozza a lisztecskét, abból sütünk perececskét,
Beli buba, beli, beli, kicsi kutyasággal teli,
Beli buba a párnára, kicsi kutya a szalmára,
Aj-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

S a mamája elringassa, szépen álmodozni hagyja,
Álmodj szépet, álmodj jót, aranydiót, mogyorót,
Beli buba, beli, beli, kicsi kutyasággal teli,
Beli buba a párnára, kicsi kutya a szalmára,
Aj-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

Beli buba, beli, beli, little mischievous,
Beli buba, onto the pillow, little puppy onto the pallet,
Beli buba, beli, beli, little mischievous,
Beli buba, onto the pillow, little puppy onto the pallet,
Ay-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

Beli buba, there’s no Papa, he’s gone to the mill,
He brings home the flour, we’ll bake bretzel with it,
Beli buba, beli, beli, little mischievous,
Beli buba, onto the pillow, little puppy onto the pallet,
Ay-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

Her Mama is nestling her, lets her dream away,
Dream nice, dream good, golden walnuts, hazelnuts,
Beli buba, beli, beli, little mischievous,
Beli buba, onto the pillow, little puppy onto the pallet,
Ay-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
