My Altai by Bolot Bairyshev

‘I will be true to you, my Altai’ by Bolot (a snipet from his song ‘Pazyryk’)

The text of the sound file is translated below from Russian into English

From ‘Pazyryk’ by Bolot Bairyshev

 

Oh, Altai, My Altai

How ancient are you?

What misfortune and sorrow have you known

over the ages?

For there was a time, long ago,

When you were the pride;

When your beauty was glorified the world over

by the great Roerich;

And you were held so tenderly in the hands

of the artist Gurkin.

And I am proud to have been born under your lucky star,

And I will be true to you, My Altai.
