Hello goldenlangur. This is old traditional song. This song sings a lot of our singers and the origin sings the old singer - now dead Nikola Badev, and I must note that he is from my region - Kavadarci. The song tells how the girl Biljana whitening the linen on fountain of Ohrid lake and at the moment showed up the vintners and she asks from them to be careful of her linen because that linen is for giving to her parents in low for one day when she gonna get marriage. And they are saying to her, if they stepped the linen, they will pay with beautiful wine. But she ask not the wine , but the boy who ride the caravan.

 

So this song is for love, for ones who fall in love, marriage etc.

We have tradition to prepare the girls before they get marriage, ok that was more present in the past, now it is changing , but the folklore, the tradition, the songs live forever.

 

Here is the LINKwith the origin voice.

 

Glad you like it golden.

in her eyes
