Лале ли си, зюмбюл ли си ~ Lale li si, zyumbyul li si ~ Are you a tulip, are you a hyacinth
A hypnotic & beautiful traditional folk melody from the Dobrudja region of Bulgaria. Verka Siderova, born in 1926 in Dobrich, was one of Bulgaria’s most beloved singers of traditional folk music. She learned this song from her grandmother who had learned it from her grandmother. Verka Siderova made this song popular throughout Bulgaria. Many wonderful versions have spread this melody throughout the world. It is one of my favorite songs. It is a music journey of the spirit. This is the music of our world.
