◊  ‘Bulbul olsam varsam yanina’  ↓

«If only I’d be a nightingale and sing in the gardens / In each of my folk songs write your name on them
Every morning I warble my rose
If only I’d be a seagull, fly away over the seas
If I sailed into the wind, I’d reach the dawn with every stroke of my wings» 
Ben bir bülbül olsam – Ötsem bahçelerde
Her türkümde yaksam – Adını üzerine
Her sabah şakırım gülüm – Gülüm nina ninay nay
Ben bir bülbül olsam – Ötsem bahçelerde
Her türkümde yaksam – Adını üzerine
Her sabah şakırım gülüm – Gülüm nina ninay nay
Ben bir martı olsam – Uçsam denizlere
Ruzgârlara açsam – Giderim sehere
Her kanadımı çarpışla – Gülüm nina ninay nay…

Bulutların üstünden – Bıraktım ben kendimiBaBaZ
Sonunu düşünmeden – Duygular sarınca beni
Gizlice tuttum elini – Yüzüne baktım usulca
Gözlerin fısıldadı ah – Mutluluğu yavaşça
Çiçeklerin kokusu – Dalgaların şarkısı
Rüzgarın fısıltısı – Bir sana bir de bana
Bahçede hanımeli – Gökyüzünde yıldızlar
Yağmurun narin sesi – Şimdi bir anlamı var
Aşk nasıl da kırılgan – Sus dedim ama olmadı
Kalbimden ismin geçti ah – Kimseler duymadı
Çiçeklerin kokusu – Dalgaların şarkısı
Rüzgarın fısıltısı – Bir sana bir de bana

-English translation:

Over the clouds – I left myself
Without thinking of the end – When feelings surrounded me
Secretly I held your hand
Gently I looked up in your face
Your eyes whispered, ahhh, The happiness in silence
Smell of flowers – Songs of wavelets
And utterance of wind
One for you, One for me
Honeysuckles in the garden – Stars in the sky
Tender voice of the Rain, All means something now
How delicate is Love
I said «shut up», but it won’t do
My heart mentioned your name – Alas, Nobody noticed

[translation]  –  ‘Honey , Since I Broke Up With You’

honey , since i broke up with you it has been quite a long time – come back , come back…
look at my tears falling down from my eyes – they became a stream – come back , come back…
is that OK to sulk and go to leave the guy that dies for you
it became illgotten to eat or drink – the whole world tumbled down on me
come back , come back…
the guy that dies for you looks forward to meeting – meeting and hearing about you
hurry up to lay me to rest – the guy that dies for you has really died
come back , come back…


kul aşık bekler varmaya  –  varıpta haber sormaya
yetiş namazım kılmaya  –  seni seven öldü gel gel…..

aman aman aman aman . . .»

← Lost Songs of Anatolia  [by Nezih Ünen]

A musical voyage among the exotic places and people of Anatolia, which is the unique host of ancient civilizations, empires, as well as mythologies, and the glory of 10 millennia. With 350 hours of footage and 8 years of hard labor and creative studies, The Lost Songs of Anatolia may be the first of its kind; an experimental musical-documentary. The cultural riches of Anatolia are sung in authentic performances recorded live on location, spontaneously. With modern arrangements, an incomparable musical is formed.

Nezih Ünen was born and lived in Bursa, Turkey until the age of 18 when he moved to Istanbul for college. During his school years, he had a keen interest in music and photography. Throughout his engineering education at the Bosporus University, he took part in music and drama, as well as a number of photography exhibitions. After receiving his degree, Ünen decided to pursue a career in music. Driven by an urge to explore new ideas rather than being confined to any one specific area of expertise, he captured a unique way in which to blend different musical cultures and styles in most of his works.
