Three Mari songs performed by Шижäт Bäл / Šižät Väl. I think the language is Hill Mari but I haven't found any more details about the songs yet.

Kadonu Loru - Kven Finnish
The days of the week and sausage-making! :mrgreen:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4KeIbGOnXw
Maanantaina makkarat vallaat
Tiistaina tikhuun tukkiit
Keskiviikkona keittäät
Tuorestaina tungan tukkiit
Perjantaina perheele jakkaat
Lauantaina liemen lakkiit
ja Sunnuntaina suun pyhkiit

Oh! I know this loru! My mum taught it to me when I was a kid, but I've never heard it sung before. Thanks for the video! :D

The poem how I learnt it:

Maanantaina makkarat tehtiin,
tiistaina tikut vuoltiin,
keskiviikkona keitto keitettiin,
torstaina tupaan kannettiin,
perjantaina perheelle annettiin,
lauantaina liemi latkittiin,
sunnuntaina suu pyyhittiin.

On Monday, the sausages were made
On Tuesday, the sticks were carved
On Wednesday, the soup was cooked
On Thursday, it was carried in the house
On Friday, it was given to the family
On Saturday, the broth was slurped
On Sunday, mouths were wiped

I was always so sorry for the family because they got nothing to eat until Friday.

Cool! When I posted it I wondered if it was a Kven-specific song or general Finnish one. It sounded like the type of song that would have variations in lots of regions, I guess. Thanks for posting the version you know!

Yeah, and they get it on Friday, but don't eat the broth until Saturday. :doggy: Life was just slower-paced back then, I guess? :silly:

The same song in English:

The lyrics are surprisingly close in Finnish, but not quite the same. :)

Muzik-aldoine project - Kirdeine (The Letter) in Veps
This song starts out as a letter from a daughter to her mother and it is about remembering the place she is from. The letter brings tears and brings memories back to life. I don't understand all of it but the refrain says "Nece om minu pert’" (this is my house), she remembers the dog, the water from the spring, and so on. "Kaikele tervehta, kaikele muhota" - greet everyone, smile to everyone.
