Fatmagül & Kerim- Evlerinin önü mersin (Episode 32)

Download the MP3 :

http://www.4shared.com/audio/uBpkmcMA/Fatmagl__Kerim-_Evlerinin_n_me.html

fsn-32-1.JPG

Explanation posted by Kristen

Just received a wonderful new translation from a very kind person from the region of Turkiye where the song originates. Wonderful detailed look at the culture of this time. Many thanks for the translator's generous contribution.

"Evlerinin onu mersin(Literally "in front of their house, there is a mersin tree)

Mersin is a kind of tree as well as a city in Southern Turkey, but here it is the tree. This line is a "filler" which is common in Turkish folklore poems. It sets up a rhyme for the next lines, so may not mean much. But here actually it does. You have to understand the circumstances under which this song was written, a century ago in a small village in Turkey where life was strictly conservative and it's not like you could exactly go and ask someone out. Dating or unmarried love was punishable and unacceptable. Here he is actually giving a hint of who the song is about, or who he is secretly in love with, in hopes she may hear the song and figure out that he is in love. How is that for a start

Ah sular icmem gadinim, tersin ah tersin(I don't drink water, my woman, you are sweating and sweating)

He is watching her from a distance, possibly at hard labor on a field and is sorry for her suffering under the sun. Out of symphaty he cannot drink water while she is suffering(look this is my interpretation, may be totally off, but i do not know what else it could mean. About "gadinim" xoNura is right on the spot ; it is the local way of saying "kadinim", =my woman))

Mevlam seni bana versin (May God give you to me) not much to say on this

Al hanceri gadinim, vur ben oleyim(Take the dagger, my woman, stab me, let me die)

Ah kapinizda bidanem kul ben olayim(or let me be a servant/slave at your door)

So this whole part is saying, basically, as long as God (Mevlam means my God, or My Allah) will give you to me, I'll accept anything, I am yours, you can make me a slave at your door, or just kill me , I am willing for anything , only if I can be yours and you can be mine. Now this part is fantastic when it is said in Turkish, and brings tears to my eyes sometimes.

Evlerinin onu susam (In front of their house there is a sesame tree/bush) again, hinting at who the loved one is, without giving her name but kind of her address

Ah su bulsam da gadinim, cevremi yusam (If only I could find some water, and clean/wash my cevre) a "Cevre" is a traditional scarf like cloth men (used to) wear around their head.He is possibly a poor kid, (otherwise he would just ask her father for her hand in marriage and this song would never come to be, so unfortunate for him, fortunate for the rest of us). He is a worker, a simple farmer, and he is embarrassed of his dirty "cevre" while passing in front of her house.

Acsam yuzunu, baksam dursam(Only if I could unveil your face and stare and stare) This is key. In a traditional rural turkish wedding, she would definitely wear a veil and conceal her face, until after the wedding night, when they are finally alone, the groom gives her a gift, maybe a jewel or gold, and ceremonially unveils her face, and they have their first night together. Here he is saying, if that ever happened, I would just stare at your face (instead of making love to you) and that would be enough for me. I just want to stare and stare at your face...

The rest is the same as above Now a little more info on this:

So this song, is also called Isparta Zeybegi. It was "discovered" in the 1940 s in Gonen, Isparta by Mustafa Sarisozen, a monumental figure in Turkish folk music, who was a music major that was appointed by the government to travel around the nation and "collect " unknown folk songs.He heard it from a man called Kadir Acar, also nicknamed Kadir Cavus (sergeant Kadir) and captured the lyrics and put the song in notation, so generations can enjoy it.I do not know if Kadir wrote it, or he just knew it and played and sang it to Sarisozen. Most "Turku"s do not have a known composer.

For my money, one of the best interpretations of this fantastic song is by Okan Murat Ozturk, on youtube, check it out."
