I love hearing traditional (or folk) music from around the world and I’m hoping that some members of IndiaPalette will be willing to share their favorites here.
I have heard this first song while sitting in a restaurant not too far from Targoviste, Romania. Hearing the song definitely added to the memory of the evening. The title of the song is “Unde e Târgovistea” (Where is Targoviste?).
I found this next song while browsing videos on YouTube earlier today. I can’t say that it’s a “favorite” but it sure makes me wish that I was listening to it somewhere in the Bavarian alps.February 21, 2016 at 7:30 am #15452
Wonderful topic, Paul. Can’t wait to listen to this musc (my son is sleeping and headphones suddenly stopped working 🙁 ) . And will go to YouTube right away to find some of my favorite Ukrainian songs 🙂February 21, 2016 at 11:00 pm #15476
I found a nice one from Italy 🙂February 22, 2016 at 12:15 am #15478
@paul, what a magical effect the first Romanian song has- hearing one song like this is sometimes enough to fall in love with a country.
And here is one of my favorite Ukrainian songs – “Moon in the sky”

Indeed. I can’t understand the lyrics and sometimes there are no lyrics at all but the music is still moving, such as it is with the songs that you posted. I would love to hear them while actually being in Ukraine.
Here is another Romanian song that I can’t understand but recognize when I hear it being played.February 22, 2016 at 2:51 am #15483
Who doesn’t like the Greek sirtaki? 😀
