Svjata Vatra a Viking Cossack Folk Rock Band proudly announce the release of their new single called “LETILA ZOZULIA” (Flying cuckoo) Летіла зозуля через мою хату.

The song, being polyphonic by nature, inspired the musicians to fuse folk, rock, funk and indie and use ukrainian clay ocarina (called “zozulia”) together with a jews harp. The timeless traditional song tells a metaphorical story of a complicated love triangle that needs to be solved so that the kids would not be left without love and care and everyones life could continue in a dignified way.

Lyrics UKR:

Летіла зозуля через мою хату,
Сіла на калині, та й стала кувати.
Ой, чого, Зозуле, ой, чого ж ти куєш?
Хіба ти, Зозуле, добро мене чуєш?
Якби не чувала, то би не кувала,
Про тебе, дівчино, всю правду сказала.
Ой, Боже мій, Боже, що я наробила?
Козак має жінку, а я полюбила.
Козак має жінку, ще й діточок двоє.
Ще й діточок двоє, чорняві обоє.
А я ж тих діточок та й не понаймаю,
З тобою, Марусино, в саду й погуляю.
Гуляв Козаченько неділю й дві ночі,
Прийшов Козаченько до дівчини в гості.
Ой, Боже мій, Боже, який я удався,
На чужій сторонці за жінку признався.
Не так же за жінку, як за дві дитини,
Розкололось серце на дві половини.


Flying a Cuckoo

Flew a Cuckoo in through my house,
Sat on the Kalyna, and started to koo koo.
Oh why, you Cuckoo, oh, why do you sing?
May be you, oh Cuckoo, do hear me so well?
If you would not have heard me, you would not be singing,
About you oh girl, the whole truth was told.
Oh God, my dear God, what have I now done?
The Kozak has a wife, and I loved him so.
The Kozak has a wife, and yet two children.
Yet there are two children, dark and handsome are both.
And I those children will not hire them out,
I with you, dear Mary, in the orchard shall be.
Ran around, the young Kozak, one Sunday and two nights,
Came the young Kozak, a guest to the maiden.
Oh God, my dear God what have I now become,
I find myself in the wrong, for a woman, I do confess.
And not just for that woman, as for those two children,
My heart has now been broken - in two, in two halfs.
