Songs in 80 languages - compilation

Postby Moraczewski » 2015-09-24, 18:59

I must thank this forum - especially for the Song Contests where I picked most of the songs included in this video. These are mostly modern pop songs with some folk and rock. I hope you like them.

I used Paint.NET to edit the images, Adobe Audition to edit the audio and Sony Vegas to assemble the video. I won't make another video with the same languages but may be once I collect enough songs in different languages I might start making "120 songs" or whatever. Anyway I love music so I'll be glad to receive any suggestions.

Gypsy a.k.a. Romani, if I'm not mistaken. Dialect spoken in Serbia/Bosnia.

I'm anything but an expert but I think you got various things wrong:

- I don't think Gypsy is really an accepted/acceptable name for the language. The term is actually seen as pejorative by some (or many?).

- Romani is not a dialect, it's a language (with many dialects).

- Romani is spoken throughout the Roma diaspora, not only in Serbia and Bosnia.

I should have used Romani but some people confuse Romani with Romance languages. This is a sensitive topic anyway: there are lots of other languages which are named differently by other nations, for example: Kartveli - Georgian, Magyar - Hungarian, Sakha - Yakut, and I am not sure if all of these exonyms are appropriate. I apologise if I hurt someone's feelings and would like to know more about it.

Sorry for my bad grammar. I intended to write: that song was in Romani language, specifically in Serbian/Bosnian dialect of Romani.

You didn't hurt my feelings, but there's a difference between using "Georgian" and "Hungarian" on the one hand and "Gypsy" on the other (not sure about Yakut vs. Sakha even though I realize Sakha is an endonym and Yakut is apparently what outsiders call them). I once explained here what the issue with that term is in English at least.

Hope this helps! :)
