Ederlezi

I recall those nights…music and beer and friends. 3 o’clock in the night when everybody laying down somewhere in the darkly smoky corner of the room, slowly grabbing a half empty bottle of alcohol. Then someone, after a short sleep , not drunk enough eventually, jamming that tape in the caste player. With the sounds of Ederlezi everybody is up on feet, grabbing each other in the chaotic hora dance. 7 o’clock and Mesecina or Kalasnjikov still playing. Have you been there ? 🙂


The lady in this Youtube video plays Ederlezi in a different key then the one of Bregovic ( which is more on Em Am G Em and C chords )…well…different voice, isn’t it :). Also lyrics are …in a short version. You may transpose this one as you like, but I like to play this version also:

Dm

Gm……….Dm

E bakren cinen.

Gm……….Dm.

A me coro….,
