Song of the week: ONUKA – ZENIT (ЗЕНІТ) [Incl. translation]

January 5, 2020


Intro

This week we will be again switching temporarily to a weekly song, instead of daily songs. This is because I will be lacking time. That doesn’t mean you won’t get something in return, as this week I will be having my first giveaway here on my blog. Further details about this will be shared soon.

We’ll be moving to my homeland for this week’s song, the beautiful Ukraine. ONUKA’s song ZENIT (Zenit), or by its Ukrainian name of ЗЕНІТ (Зеніт). The capitalisation of the band’s name is intentional, this to not confuse the band name with the Ukrainian term “онучка”(onuka), meaning granddaughter.
The song has a genre which is hard to properly define. You could say it’s etnopop (ethnopop). You could say it’s folk music. You could say it’s pagan music. And you could say it’s experimental music. None would be incorrect.

As I usually do with non-English songs, I’ve added translated subtitles to the music video, and you can also find the translation below. Hopefully you’ll enjoy this song as much as I do.

Original Ukrainian lyrics

Там, де високі гори я вільно лечу
Там, де глибокі води я вільно пливу

Літаю в небі я
Літаю в небі вільно
Мелодія моя сильна

Там, де високі гори я вільно лечу
Там, де глибокі води я вільно пливу

Літаю в небі я
Літаю в небі я
Літаю в небі я
Мелодія моя
Мелодія моя

Вітер застигає, як сонце стає в зеніт
І я є я
Вітер застигає, як сонце стає в зеніт
І я є я, і я є я, і я є я
Вітер застигає, як сонце стає в зеніт


English translation of lyrics

There where the mountains are high, I fly freely.
There where the water is deep, I swim freely.

I fly in the sky.
I fly freely in the sky.
My melody is strong.

There where the mountains are high, I fly freely.
There where the water is deep, I swim freely.

I fly in the sky
I fly in the sky
I fly in the sky
My melody
My melody

The wind freezes as the sun rises to its zenith.
And I’m myself.
The wind freezes as the sun rises to its zenith.
And I’m myself.
And I’m myself.
And I’m myself.
The wind freezes as the sun rises to its zenith.
