Dvo gitary ....(Traditional Russian Folk Songs)

' Korovoushka ' is an old peasant song. of which the refrain is ' All because of a little brown cow.'
' Noch Temna furnishes a striking contrast to the good humour of the first. Beginning ' The night is dark and endless,' it is the pathetic plaint of a young woman who has been unhappily married against her will.
' Sha -aban.' The name of the third song looks as though Russia had borrowed it from a more familiar tongue. It means ' the jaunting car,' and the song is a merry one describing the starting off for a trip.
' Ty napomnila.' Again, this has a pathetic note. It may be translated: You have awakened old memories.'
' Odnosvouchno Gremit ' is an older and more authentic version than the one usually sung ; it goes ' Monotonously rings tha little bell.'
' Dve gitary ' again looks unlike typical Russian. It means, as on) might guess, 'two guitars,' and is a favourite song of the Russian gypsies.
The songs are all genuine traditional folk songs of Russia, and are all to be accompanied by two guitars. Tho singer is one who knows these songs intimately and is well qualified to sing them in tho real traditional spirit. They are all to be sung in Russian.
