On Every Beat Of My Wings


Today I want to listen to Brenna MacCrimmon, and make you listen her, too. She is a Kanadian musician. Since the late 1980s, she is performing and teaching Balkanic and Turkish musics. She also has a very sweet Turkish accent.This can clearly be seen through her songs.

She is widely known as Turkish folk musician. Here is one of her great performance. It is from Fatih Akin’s documantary, which is based on Istanbul’s musics; Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul (2005)

Its Lyrics, both in Turkish and English:

Ben bir bülbül olsam ötsem bahçelerde 

(If i were a nightingale singing in gardens)

Her türkümde yaksam adını üzerine

(If i would sing all my songs for your name)

Her sabah şakırım gülüm

(I would warble every morning, my rose)

Gülüm ninna ni na nay•´ ♥ ☆ ♥ `•.¸.•´ ♥ º ☆.¸¸.•´¯`♥

Ben bir martı olsam uçsam denizlere 

(If i were a nightingale flying towards the seas)

Rüzgarlara açsam giderim sehere

(If i open my wings, i would go to dawn)

Her kanadımı çarpışta,

(On every beat of my wings)

Gülüm ninna ne na nay•´ ♥ ☆ ♥ `•.¸.•´ ♥ º ☆.¸¸.•´¯`♥
