‘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.
