“Bir fırtına tuttu bizi” is a story of a Migration… one that happens between borders, and hits populations with its harsh reality of life conditions. This big migration, during the years 1878 to 1912, took place in the Thrace region and Bulgaria (then the Ottoman Empire). During the migration, people lost not just their homes and lands, but their families or lovers; this folk song is a mourning for the latter. resAUnance plays it non-metered, in an arch form of dynamics, re-imagining the big gallop of the mentioned storm.


Bir fırtına tutu bizi,
deryaya kardı.
O bizim kavuşmalarımız a yarim
mahşere kaldı.

Mapsahanede yata yata,
yanlarım çürüdü.
Pencereden baka baka a yarim,
ela gözler süzüldü.

A storm caught us,
thrust us into the sea.
Our meetings, ah my love
are delayed till the Last Judgment.

Lying in prison,
my sides were bruised.
Looking out the window, ah my love,
hazel eyes sagging, longing for you.

(Translation by Esin Gunduz)
