My God Grant You a Good Year. Folksongs Heritage from Adlešiči
Drago Kunej, Marko Terseglav
The CD May God Grant you a Good Year presents the long singing tradition of the Bela krajina village of Adlešiči. The first recordings, made on wax cylinders, originate from 1914 and are a historic document of sound recording in Slovenia. These are followed by the first recordings on tape from 1955, then later recordings spanning a period up to the present. The selection includes narrative and love songs, ritual and drinking songs, and patriotic songs. Some of these are only known in Adlešiči and others are specific to the Bela krajina region, but the majority represent variations of folk songs known all over Slovenia.
