Info :
"In this autobiographical song, Atai Ogonbaev, a famous Kyrgyz bard, recounts his youthful romance with the daughter of a wealthy neighbor. To prevent the girl from marrying a poor musician, her family secretly gave her in marriage to a boy from a distant settlement. Atai composed this song after a fruitless two-year search for his beloved. The performer, Zainidin Imanaliev, exemplifies the qualities of a traditional akyn, who is at once master instrumentalist, singer, poet and entertainer."

Lyrics :

I burn, I smoulder like charcoal
I think I'm burning, but there is no smoke.
On the upper part of my heart
There is no spot that is whole.

In the high mountain pass Kan-Jailoo
A cold breeze blows when snow falls.
My dark-eyed one in the wide collar, I burn;
if you know the price of my love, come yourself.

Like a blossoming white poplar
You walk, showing off a white dress.
I have no choice; I cannot be with you
I wander around like a lost young camel.

Like a blossoming silvery poplar
You walk coquettishly in a silvery scarf.
Unable to find a way to be with you,
I am left suffering like a weeping young camel.


Küidüm Küidüm küidüm chok
Küidüm desem tütün jok
Jürögümdün bashyndai
Küidüm jügörüdöi bütü jok

Kan-jailoo degen biyik bel
Oshogo kar jaasa sogot muzdak jel
Qairyma jaka kara köz
küidüm kadyrdy bilseng özüng kel

Ak terektei bürlönüp
Jürösüng sen ak köinök kiyip türlönüp
Aila jok saga jete albai
Men jüröm adashkan tailak öngdönüp

Boz terektei bürlönüp
Jürösüng sen boz jooluk salyp turlönüp
Boljolun taap jetalbai
Men jüröm bozdogon tailak öngdönüp.
