Croatian Lullabies

Sanda wrote to us about Croatian lullabies…

"If you are looking for real Croatian traditional lullabies, there is a CD of woman group singing klapa.  Klapa is traditional form of a capella singing from Dalmatia, on the Croatian coast. [Note from Mama Lisa: Klapa means, ‘a group of friends’.  Harmony and melody is an important part of this type of singing.]  Klapa singing is also listed on UNESCO world heritage. This female klapa called Ćakulone recorded a CD with traditional lullabies." 

Here is Ćakulone’s YouTube Channel and a you tube video so you can hear them singing a lullaby…

    Hello. My Uncle through marriage, sang this Croatian lullaby to his daughter. It has stuck in my mind for over 60 yrs. I don’t know the language or the proper spelling, but I can remember the phonetics. Saw moi naymoi tee, mightzi caza tee, dah tell you beemya, tone knee nay yeasti nah. I would love for someone to find the complete lyrics and translation and the title for My grandchildren.
