Interesting, the version I know uses Тапшини as opposed to тапшин

And the last line is as follows:
(insert baby's name here) да ги вечера

I'm actually really surprised and pretty disappointed that there's nothing online anywhere, and in particular no YouTube videos with Macedonian nursery rhymes or lullabies.

My son's kindergarten are now playing international nursery rhymes for the children based on the nationalities in the class... from English, French, Japanese and many others, all found on YouTube, yet and lo and behold, the only ones that they can't find are any Macedonian ones.

The only Macedonian nursery rhymes that my dad sang to me as a kid were the ones that arenít really fit for polite society. Hereís just one classic gem from his very rich repertoire that Iíve managed to remember:
Kole i Kolejca ojdoa pod vodejnca - tamu najdoa tri zheni so pichki strizheni.

He was also particularly gifted with covering old Macedonian folk songs (but with his own personal touch). Hereís one thatís hard to forget:
Chudna zhena beshe Vera, koj pomina i go vtera

For a nation on the brink of cultural extinction (forget the politics, I mean just the exodus out of the country and the assimilation that happens as well as the declining population growth rate among ethnic Macedonians), and with a language that is a minimun of 1000 years old, one of the oldest surviving languages in the world.

Given all that, it should be an utmost imperative to do all we can to keep the culture and language alive, and find creative ways to promote it and embed elements of it into the global mainstream.

Surely we have some nice sounding nursery rhymes that could be a start. The way 'frere jacques' and 'alouette, gentille alouette' are.

Something like
Стани, стани детенце
Надвор пее петленце
Пее кукурика
Тебе ми те вика
...

I'm on a mission to find someone who can sing, to get a list of nursery rhymes, sing them out onto YouTube videos, with lyrics and english translations. Any help would be appreciated, even if there's a book I can find an order from Macedonia with the lyrics that you can share a link or intro to.

So, I've now stumbled onto the "Darko Biberko" project run by the girls who created the "Vardare, Vardare" song which was a hit.

So, this looks awesome, I'll be backing it and hope many of us do!

Hi Rogi Have you thought your mission through? For example: Are you looking for a child, teenager, adult to sing? Will you expect the singer to just sing or will the singer appear on the video? Who will film the video? Does the singer need to be from your city?
