"Haydi gidelim haydi nani nani oy oy
haydi gelmiyor musun, nani nani oy oy
Bu kadar yalvardım, bir şey demiyor musun"


Are you sure it is a Laz song in origin ?

True thou, it belongs to the East Black Sea region.

Even though it has one part Turkish / one part Lazish it has Laz origin which was compiled / composed by Birol Topaloglu, here is the Lazpart,

ela komxti ela nani nani oy oy
ena va mogalesen nani nani oy oy
gogala gogala do nani nani oy oy
škimda na cegalesen nani nani oy oy
kriyi mamuli kriyinani nani oy oy
kriyam do moy va tanum nani nani oy oy
puli kormepe ?kala nani nani oy oy
kaoba cegotanun nani nani oy oy

A nice song from Georgia. I think it would be very nice if a polyphonic women voice version performed.

What is that sack-pipe instrument called. It's very similar to the nay anban. Which is a SW Iranian region specific instrument.

It is a Love song, originally written by Nana Belkania (Megrelian), Laz and Megrel are mutually intelligible at 80-90 percent. Even though there is different versions of this song here is my favorite one,

This one is good as well performed by Megrelian Mariam Elieshvili

I'll post a link to an acquaintance, Temur Tsaguria, who does a wide variety of Georgian stuff. Since I don't know that language, I can't say a particular song is traditional, translate it for you, or anything. He's a good performer, somewhat in a cabaret tradition; has been in the US for at least 20 years (Balto-Washington area). One language in which he performs is Russian, and I've backed him up on kontrabass balalaika several times. Haven't seen Temur very recently, but his Facebook page indicates he's still active. The photo with this example is not at all recent...

I think Caucasus has genuinely some of the best folk music in the entire region. It lies somewhere in-between west-Asian and European music. While it is more melodic(especially in singing) and less rhythmic than west-Asian music, it's also less instrumental and melancholic than its European counterparts. The main difference that Caucasus music has to west-Asian music is that it empathizes mandolins and uses accordions and collective singing, and puts less empathsis on drums and nays/zurnas, which are essential for establishing rhythm.

Some of my favourite pieces:

I dont know if north east turkey pontic region should be defined as part of caucaus but if we share laz song here then why not other pontic populations' songs be shared?

Here is a song Hemshin Dialect of Armenian Song. Both in genetic and culturally hemshin people close to other pontic populations but they speak a dialect of Armenian with Zan/Laz phonethics.

Great thread. I like traditional noncommercial music and folk songs. To collect some of my favorites I try to build a list (thanks to the posters):

Basiani- თუშეთო/Georgian Folk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDeQNT2eVFM) kind of epic folk, BTW: The KartvelianHeritage channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR6yqYPWgjNkz3KbF6WSr4A) looks and sounds great
Heyamo - Birol Topaloğlu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ku1piA7hv5Y) sounds like made for One Thousand and One Nights (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Thousand_and_One_Nights) (I used to watch Sindbad anime (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNQlteN_QNY), great memories), chorus would be interesting
Mariami Abdushelishvili (Lazuri Nani-Nana) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyHuUofdGfA) great female voice and instruments
Trio Mandili (Georgia) - singing in Chechnya and Malik about kistinku (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtWsFicyNb4) (translated), fresh and young approach
Chechen detschig-pondar melodies (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOHMaOTxbjI) Amazing skills on this stringed instrument
InGUSH GIMN (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6fJJVCHwOw) singing/chorus-style reminds me the Islandic/nordic Tyr: 1 (https://youtu.be/vtjksfgCp0I?list=PLE5A3F0B9329112C5), 2 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Zy60YGs81k), 3 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0I1geB7U5VI) (blend out the metal stuff)
Kavkasiuri Balada (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTtKBxWHHGo) a bit too modernized but great passion to perform
Kazim Koyuncu Didou Nana (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96i7ACeHRiI) great male voice and instruments


P.S.: I created a thread for Alpine Music / Alps Folk Music (Tyrol, Bavaria, Austria, Swiss, Krain, etc.) (http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?6583-Alpine-Music-Alps-Folk-Music-%28Tyrol-Bavaria-Austria-Swiss-Krain-etc-%29) if you are interested in the culture of this other Mountainous region ;-)

I once heard some form of music called Xorumi / Khorumi. It seems to be a very catchy tune especially the drum work. What is the Georgian drum called? Also what is the significance of Xorumi? Also does anyone know the name of the instrument used at the very beginning?

...

The flute's name at the begining is Duduka or DŘdŘka.

^^Here are the lyrics I could more or less grasp, I'm unsure about the rest (save the Turkish parts):

Έλα κάθ'κα σα γόνατα (μ' κορτσόπον λάλ'μεν)
Έλα κάθ'κα σα γόνατα (μ' κορτσόπον λάλ'μεν)

Ας πλέκω τα μαλλίας (ελα ελα λεγω 'σε)
Ας πλέκω τα μαλλίας (ελα ελα λεγω 'σε)

Aς πλέκατα ψιλά ψιλά (μ' κορτσόπον λάλ'μεν)
Aς πλέκατα ψιλά ψιλά (μ' κορτσόπον λάλ'μεν)

Και σύρατα σ' ομία 'ς (ελα ελα λεγω 'σε)
Και σύρατα σ' ομία 'ς (ελα ελα λεγω 'σε)

Μώσε θεία μώσε, μώσε παλαλός εν
Μ’έναν βούραν λεφτοκάρια λέει με έλα ας φιλώ 'σε
Μ’έναν βούραν λεφτοκάρια λέει με έλα ας φιλώ 'σε ατώρα

If I missed something or made a mistake, by all means, let me notice! :P
