Vos iz fun dem az ikh bin sheyn

Title

Vos iz fun dem az ikh bin sheyn

Date

1948

Description

[Note from typewritten tape log in box:] These [marriage songs] are not songs of ceremonials or rites. These are songs which touch upon the marriage theme, either in jest, satirically, in dance or even in a children’s rhyme like [Tape 70] No. 3. Sometimes they bear the mark of the marriage entertainer (badkhn). [Handwritten note:] Like [Tape 70] No. 5.

Younin introduces song in Yiddish: He heard the song in 1929 in Lubave (?) Latvia from Yohana Patirmayster; song sung from the point of view of a shadkhn’s (matchmaker’s) daughter... To one listener it sounds like words were put to an instrumental - the intervals and ornaments are not usual for a singer but are for an instrument). She has no new clothes, doesn’t want to go the khupe with anyone. Her father has many enemies. In 3/4 meter.
