DARA – Nedei

Welcome back everyone,

Did you really think Music Monday wasn’t going to make a comeback? Of course, it is here to stay and today I will share music from my homeland.

I am from Bulgaria and I don’t listen to Bulgarian music too much or at all, that was the case when I living in Bulgaria too. However, I recently began researching Bulgaria music because I wanted to find something upbeat and new. I listen to a lot of KPOP, so I thought there has to be Bulgaria music I’ll love.

One day I discovered a Bulgarian Youtuber, Emil Conrad, and he shared a song by DARA. I checked it out and I am proud to say I officially have a Bulgarian singer on my playlist.

DARA (Darina Yotova).

 

Darina Yotova, also known by her stage name, Dara, is born on September 9, 1998, in Varna, Bulgaria. She gained her popularity from the Bulgarian Edition of the X Factor. She is now signed under Virginia Records and in 2016 she released her debut song, ‘Kvo Ne Chu”, translated as “What Didn’t You Hear”.

 

 

But this is not the song I will be talking about today, I would like to introduce to you DARA’s new single, “Nedei” translated to “Don’t”. She may be the first Bulgarian artist who will put Bulgarian music on the map and I am happy it’s not the chalga genre. It is a unique music genre in Bulgaria that I dislike, but her music is a mix of pop, R&B and synthpop.

From the start of the song, it has a very upbeat an catchy tune and it leads into the song naturally. The melody is memorable and melodious, it’ll make you hum and sing it throughout the day. The song will not be complete without Dara’s expressive, dynamic and soulful vocals. Her vocal tone is strong and it makes you feel the emotions she’s feeling throughout the song.

The lyrics tell a story about longing for a lover who is no longer in your life, with the possibility of meeting each other one day. Below you will find the Bulgarian lyrics and English lyrics.

Bulgarian Lyrics

Не променяй себе си, себе си.
Обещание даваш ли, даваш ли?
Но, не забравяй – липсваш ми, липсваш ми.
Не затваряй сърцето си, сърцето си.
Недей, недей
Може би ти и аз някога ще се срещнем.
Може би, може би някога ще се срещнем.
Тези капки по лицето ти не са сълзи.
Аз ще съм добре, повярвай ми, не ме мисли.
Не казвай нищо,
очите казват, те казват всичко.
Едно те моля – не ме забравяй!
Недей, недей.
Недей, недей
Може би ти и аз някога ще се срещнем.
Може би, може би някога ще се срещнем.
Вкъщи още има твои вещи.
Крия мириса на теб с ароматни свещи.
Всичко е наред, грешките ще станат смешни.
Грешно ли е, че обичам тези сладки грешки?
Недей, недей, недей, недей…
Може би ти и аз някога ще се срещнем.
Може би, може би някога ще се срещнем.
Може би ти и аз, ти ти ти и аз…
Ти и аз…
Може би ти и аз, ти ти ти и аз…
Някога, някога…
English Lyrics
Don’t change yourself, yourself
Do you give promises, do you give them?
But I don’t forget- I miss you, I miss you.
Don’t close your heart,
Your heart.
Don’t, don’t
Maybe you and I someday will meet.
Maybe, maybe someday we will meet.
These drops on my face are not tears.
I will be okay, believe me, don’t think of me.
Don’t say anything, eyes tell, they tell everything.
One thing I beg, don’t forget me!
Don’t, don’t.
Don’t, don’t
Maybe you and I someday will meet.
Maybe, maybe someday we will meet.
Аt home there’s still your things.
I hide the smells of you with aromatic candles.
Everything is alright, mistakes will become funny.
Is it wrong, that I like these sweet mistakes?
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t…
Maybe you and I will meet someday.
Maybe, maybe someday we will meet.
Maybe you and I, you you you and I…
You and I…
Maybe you and I, you you you and I…
Someday, someday…
The song is very catchy and the lyrics will be stuck in your head for a while, but the lyrics are repetitive. Nevertheless, I really like the song and Dara is like a breath of fresh air for the Bulgarian music scene. She has the potential to take her career overseas, she already has catchy songs. Who knows maybe her next single will put Bulgarian music on the map and that would be really cool.
Thank you so much for reading, I will have a new song review coming up tomorrow so stay tuned.
See you soon 🙂
