about

It is easy to describe Village Harmony as a touring camp for musical teens and adults who have an interest in world music, choral exploration and performance. What is more difficult to describe is the sheer power of the music they create—the exuberance and honesty and ultimate musicality of their performances, which regularly make audiences cry, laugh, whoop and applaud wildly.

This is our first "best of" compilation of Village Harmony, from the sessions of the summer of 1999. It distills the essence of what makes Village Harmony unique, but beyond that, it makes for really good listening.

Track Name: Stojne
Stojna, young innkeeper,
pour me wine to drink,
either wine, or water.
Either wine, or water,
or tell me to leave,
so that I won't get into the dark.

Either wine, or water,
or tell me to leave,
so that I won't get into the dark.
So that I won't get into the dark,
the darkness, the mud,
the mud, the puddles.

So that I won't get into the dark,
the darkness, the mud,
the mud, the puddles.
So that the villagers won't say:
- The vampire is walking through the village,
and trudges through the puddles.

Stojna, young innkeeper,
pour me wine to drink,
either wine, or water.
Either wine, or water,
or tell me to leave,
so that I won't get into the dark.

Stojne, mlada meandzhiko, le,
sipi vino da pieme,
eli vino, eli voda.
Eli vino, eli voda, le
eli kazhi da si oda,
da ne vija temninite.

Eli vino, eli voda, le
eli kazhi da si oda,
da ne vija temninite.
Da ne vija temninite, le,
temninite, kaloveto,
kaloveto, gjoloveto.

Da ne vija temninite, le,
temninite, kaloveto,
kaloveto, gjoloveto.
Da ne rekat seljaneto, le:
- Vampir jodi po seloto
da ni gazi gjoloveto.

Stojne, mlada meandzhiko, le,
sipi vino da pieme,
eli vino, eli voda.
Eli vino, eli voda, le
eli kazhi da si oda,
da ne vija temninite.
