Le soir à la montagne

A traditional song which has become popular all over northern Italy. The melody is followed by a refrain that can be accompanied by dance.

Les montagnard

the highlander
singing across the prairies
a joyous love song
that enchants his girlfriend

invites us to dance.
And you can hear [...]

et les jeunes bergères

en disant leurs prières.

and young shepherdesses
think of their beloved ones
while reciting the prairies.
And you can hear [...]
