Djelem Djelem song lyrics

Post by B25Gib »

.....Claudio -
.....................Thanks for posting the link. Since hearing a great version of Djelem Djelem by KRUNO at DjangoFest NW I had been looking for the translated lyrics to see if the song will sound good sung in English. By the way, KRUNO has a great voice and his playing with the accordian player was excellent. I believe they have a new CD coming out early next year.
......................I read somewhere that Djelem Djelem is a Croatian gipsy song that is considered the national anthem of the gipsy community in that region.
.....Cheers, Rocky

djelem djelem - I traveled I traveled

Hi guys,
Actually, the song is an old Roma (gypsy) melody with words written by a guy from Kosovo, a part of the former Yugoslav federation which up until 10 years ago included Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Slovenia etc...

Just do a google for delem delem lyrics, or djelem djelem, I'm sure a site will present itself with both the Romany lyrics and English translation.

take care.
