about

Minka e Rano Stanala - Минка е рано станала
Bulgarian, arranged by Tsvetan Georgiev for Rhodopea Kaba Trio, adapted by The Nightingale Trio

This arrangement is based on a recording by the Rhodopea Kaba Trio of Christina Lyutova, Verginia Ovcharova, Mariana Pavlova, combined with an arrangement we learned in the Yale Slavic Chorus. We’ve added the drum part ourselves.

lyrics

Bulgarian:
Минкайе, мило на майка
Минка е рано рано станала дворе помела.
Минке минке, бело момиче, защо си минке рано станала?
Рано станала вода донелa

Transliterated:
Minkaye, milo na majka
Minka e rano rano stanala dvore pomela
Minke minke, belo momiche, zashto si minke rano stanala?
Rano stanala voda donela

English Translation:
Minka is dear to her mother.
Minka rises early; she rises early and sweeps the yard.
Oh Minka, fair girl, why do you rise so early?
She rises early and fetches water.

about

The Nightingale Trio

The Nightingale Trio is village harmonies, birdsong lullabies, and moonlit round dances. They reignite the flame of women's folk music from Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
