Song of the day (23rd August) – Rolffa – “Gulatgo Mu?” (Can You Hear Me?).

Hi hi people! 🙂

Let’s listen to Sami music! I’ve been listening to quite a lot of it lately. I mean, I listen to it regularly, with Sami languages being among my most favourites, but I have times when I listen to it particularly frequently. This Sami group is from Norway. I guess all the members are Sami but they live in different parts of the country. Originally it was just a project of Rolf Morten Amundsen, from Karasjok who made music and uploaded it to a website where people could download it for free. At the beginning apparently no one did. Then he teamed. Then he teamed up with some other people and together they created Partyjoik, which I suppose is their most famous song, and it was only then that they took off. However the song I’m sharing with you is my favourite song from them. I even found an English translation

here.

 

It’s not easy to understand each other

When the other doesn’t listen

If he doesn’t even try

It’s best to let go

Hello? Hello? Do you hear me?

We don’t seem to communicate

Hello? Hello? I said do you hear me?

There’s no use to talk anymore

You have go reach a higher status

If you want to get your message across

An eloquent language can be useful

But these words don’t seem to get anywhere

Hello? Hello? Do you hear me?

We don’t seem to communicate

Hello? Hello? I said do you hear me?

There’s no use to talk anymore
