Track 4: Barong Sakhaa Kyyhabyn / I'm A Simple Sakha Girl

Lyrics: Korsunnakh. 

In this song, Chyskyyrai uses the more female menerik shamanic vocal techniques:

I am an inarticulate

Simple Sakha girl
My furry coat
Edged with beaver
Buried in the Earth

The fence with three poles
For my speedy white butterfly-coloured horse
That cuts through the clouds
Fell apart and is now covered with three layers of
mould:
It vanished through the centuries.
