Marie, Dilber Bela Marie

from Calm (2006) by Viktor Mastoridis - Melodist



A beautiful Macedonian traditional song, elegiac, dreamy and peaceful. The story is about a lady who thread heddles on a loom for weaving; and she is quietly crying; the storyteller asks her whether the loom or its parts are broken? She replies that neither the loom nor its parts are broken, but her darling is in a jail in Bitola (a city in Macedonia).


Marie, dilber bela Marie
Što krotko takeš le, em plačeš

Dal’ ti e razbojot rasipan
Il’ ti e brdoto skršeno

Nit’ mi e razbojot rasipan
Nit’ mi se niškite skinati
Nit’ mi e brdoto skršeno

Tuk’ mi e libeto daleku
Vo taja, Kara, more Bitola
Vo tija, temni more zandani


Марие, дилбер бела Марие
Што кротко такеш ле, ем плачеш

Дал’ ти е разбојот расипан
Ил’ ти е брдото скршено

Нит’ ми е разбојот расипан
Нит’ ми се нишките скинати
Нит’ ми е брдото скршено

Тук’ ми е либето далеку
Во таја, Кара, море Битола
Во тија, темни море зандани
