VELLAMO & FARONIKA

http://vellamofaronika.blogspot.com/

 

Ko bo Faronika, gromozanska riba v Jadranskem morju, zamahnila z repom, bo pogubila cel svet. »Nikar! Zavoljo nedolžnih otročičev in porodnih žen,« jo prosi Vellamo, finska boginja vode, ki na koncu reši svet s svojimi močnimi karelijskimi uroki.

 

 

Vellamo & Faronika opevata in pripovedujeta epske pesmi, nastale na slovenskem in karelijsko-finskem območju. Skozi glasbeno pripoved povezujeta in izpostavita stare simbole, ki se pojavijo tako v slovanskih kot karelijskih mitoloških zgodbah in ljudskih pesmih.

 

Hrepenenje me prevzema,

misel mi razum prežema,

naj se pesem pet odpravim,

v svet besede njene spravim,

pesmi narodne opevat,

verze ljudske te prepevat.

v ustih zrastejo besede,

misel v govor jih poveže,

da čez jezik pohitijo,

med zobmi se razpršijo.

VELLAMO & FARONIKA 

http://vellamofaronika.blogspot.com/

 

Faronika, a big monster fish living in the Adriatic Sea, is threatening to destroy the world with a single stroke of its tail. “Don’t do it! Think about the children and the pregnant women,” begs Vellamo, the Finnish goddess of water. And in the end, Vellamo saves the world with her strong Karelian spells.

 

The duo Vellamo & Faronika presents epic songs from the Slovenian and Karelian-Finnish areas. Their musical narrative connects and brings out ancient symbols that can be found both in Slavic and in Karelian mythology and folk songs.

 

 

MASTERED by desire impulsive,

By a mighty inward urging,

I am ready now for singing,

Ready to begin the chanting

Of our nation’s ancient folk-song

Handed down from by-gone ages.

In my mouth the words are melting,

From my lips the tones are gliding,

From my tongue they wish to hasten;

When my willing teeth are parted,

When my ready mouth is opened,

Songs of ancient wit and wisdom

Hasten from me not unwilling.
