Lakere bala

Standard

Gypsy song performed by E karika Djal

Lakere bala (Her Hair)

Lakere bala,somnakune bala
E daj o dad uchanel
Lakere bala, somnakune bala
E daj o dad uchanel

Soske mange ajsi romni
Somnakune na kamav
Soske mange ajsi romni
Somnakune na kamav.

About gypsylyrics

This blog is for everyone who loves Roma culture, music and dances. I'm not an expert, just an admirer who wants to share her passion. This blog wouldn't been possible without the Danza Duende project in my life. Thanks to my Gypsy Duende masters to teach me all I know.

  1. Her hair, golden hair,
    (Her) mother and father comb it
    Her hair, golden hair,
    (Her) mother and father comb it

    Why* for me such a woman,
    I don’t love golden (hair)
    Why for me such a woman,
    I don’t want golden hair

    *or, “For what / to what purpose”

    However, in the Youtube clip above they seem to be singing slightly different lyrics, that don’t include the “somnakuno / golden” references: http://www.supermusic.sk/skupina.php?idpiesne=827243

    Lakere bala, lakere bala
    E daj o dad uchanel
    Lakere bala, lakere bala
    E daj o dad uchanel

    Soske mange romeste man na kamel,
    Soske mange romeste man na kamel

    Translation:
    Her hair, her hair
    (Her) mother and father comb it
    Her hair, her hair
    (Her) mother and father comb it

    (Literal) Why for me as a husband me she doesn’t want
    (Meaning) Why doesn’t she want me for a husband?
