Iz Dolu Ide - Из Долу иде

Iz Dolu Ide is an old song that is very popular among Balkan folk dancers in the United States. The song was recorded by The Pennywhistlers, a group of American-born ladies who were some of the first to study and record Balkan and Eastern European folk music in the U.S. It appears on their album A Cool Day & Crooked Corn from 1965. It also appears on the YSC II by our sisters the Yale Slavic Chorus.


From the valley goes a bride – fair and rosy, slender and tall. As she goes her feet don’t touch the ground; her head doesn’t turn when she looks at me. When she looks, it is with dark eyes like cherries, with slender eyebrows like lace. Oh mother, old mother, why have you kept me from her? It’s been three whole weeks!


from Izvora, released September 9, 2016
