“Salma K'olungu” is a composition familiar to many Karachais since childhood. And the singer Zulfiya Chotchaeva did not accidentally choose this particular song to perform a remake, which was released today. The fact is that “The weight of the hand”, namely the name of the single, translated from Karachai, was her grandmother's favorite song, next to which the artist spent her entire childhood.
“When I was very young, I lived with my grandmother, I often heard“ Salma kolungu, ”Zulfiya says,“ my grandmother adored her and asked my aunt to perform this composition with an accordion. This is an old folk song, on which more than one generation has grown, so it resembles childhood, gives warmth. It tells how a girl couldn’t tell her about love in time and was given to marry another. About how she suffers, how everything around reminds her of her loss.
I always liked this composition. Growing up, I even used the words from it in one of my author's songs. And since it was my grandmother who instilled in me a love for music, taught me to sing, I decided to perform exactly “Salma K'alung”. It's important for me. This is a tribute to the beautiful times when she was alive, and I was a baby, a tribute to her efforts and their fruits. I hope the audience will also appreciate this track. ”
