I wanted to share with you the beauty of the Ukrainian lullaby

Aug 07, 2022

Hello my dear friends.πŸ˜ŠπŸŒ·πŸ’™πŸ’›

You know that feeling when you can't get a melody out of your head and you have to sing it all the time?🎢

I like one melody that I would like to tell you about today.πŸ‘

This lullaby was written by a Ukrainian. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ He was almost as prominent as Michael Jackson in his day.⭐️ Fans sang his songs, dressed in costumes in the style of his team, filled the halls where he performed. And he performed all over the world. 🌎

Later, the second Ukrainian living in the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ created his own music, which was in the blues style but with Ukrainian motifs. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦

The first Ukrainian is Borys Lyatoshynskyi and his lullaby "Oi hodyt’ son".

The second Ukrainian is George Gershwin and his "Clary's Lullaby".

Both pieces are lullabies and have similar melodies. 🎢 This melody is considered an ancient melody of UkrainiansπŸ’™πŸ’› and is very popular thanks to two beautiful composers who glorified Ukrainian beauty throughout the world.πŸ™πŸ™πŸŒŽ

Personally, I really like to sing this lullaby in Ukrainian for my daughter and just for my soul. ❀️

And now I should remember it better because soon I will have to sing it more often. Because the little heart of another child is beating inside me. 🀰🏻I will soon become a mother for the second time.πŸ‘ΆπŸ»

Today I'm going to post my guitar TABs,🎸 as always I've made it very simple and easy for beginners to follow. 😌

And I would really like you to listen to this melody performed by the outstanding Ukrainian artist Nina Matvienko.



The text talks about a dialogue between two characters - Dream and Sleep.πŸ’€ They wanted to make a decision about where to spend the night.πŸŒ™ They chose a house with a small child and a purring cat.πŸˆβ€β¬› They agreed to rock the baby and put the cat to sleep so that everyone would sleep sweetly and peacefully all night.😴 There is so much lack of peaceful nights in Ukraine today...πŸ’” Play this melody on the guitar and pray for Ukrainian πŸ‘§πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸ™πŸ’™πŸ’›
