"Chechen muslim girl sings Armenian patriotic song". The song this young Chechen lady, proclaimed by many as one of the most beautiful Muslim woman int he world, sings is "Hye Kajer", which translates something like Hye (Armenian) Freedom Fighter, or Patriotic Defender. It is evidently THE Armenian patriotic song. This Chechen girl, Heda Hamzatova, sings it before an Armenian audience, in Armenian. The Chechen language and Armenian are completely different. Most Chechens and most Armenians speak Russian so they have that in common, but not much else.
Watch the audience as she sings. They are mostly indifferent at first, some seem outright shocked like they are wondering what this Muslim is doing singing THEIR song, and some look outright hostile. Also, the Armenian flag is on the state in the background next to the Russian one, and Armenian president Sergz Sargsyan is in the front row at 1:51 in the front row of the audience.
As she gets into it more the audience begins to warm to her. She sings her heart out and wins most of them over with her smile and the force of her personality. Some remain unmoved and frowning throughout but most are clapping and smiling by the end.
Sometimes I will get to wondering about something and end up googling it for more information. Recently I was wondering whether Armenia uses the Cyrillic alphabet or Roman alphabet (They have their own, but also use Cyrillic.) Silly, I know, but us old broke down cowboys gotta do something with our time. While searching for info on it I ran across a link to a YouTube video that went something like "Chechen girl sings Armenian patriotic song". I watched it. It really didn't affect me much at first, a song in a language I don't understand in a country that I have no connection to.
Later I got to thinking about it and it hit me that it was something out of the ordinary. Armenia is a Christian nation, in fact they claim to be the first Christian nation. Chechnya is Muslim. Armenia has a long and bloody history of conflict with their Muslim neighbors that still simmers to this day. They were occupied by the Ottoman Turk Empire, which lead to brutal ethnic conflict and a huge loss of life for Armenians. They were involved in an on and off war with Muslim Azerbaijan post WWI. Then when the Soviet Union began to come apart tensions with Azerbaijan over borders lead to renewed hostilities in the late 1980s-early '90s.
It's singing about Armenian civilians who took up arms to defend Armenia from the Turks in world war 1 after the Armenian genocide.
In the beginning it says "hayoc azgi kuys axchikner, asgyarner xlin taran", it means "they came and took the Armenian people's virgin girls away", and it says at the end "Hayastani sirun hamar, kam mah kam azatutyun" which means "for Armenia's beauty, we will have either death or freedom".
It's basically a patriotic song about self defense of Armenia from enemy forces.
I don't have a dog in this fight and only mention it as background, I'm not taking any sides.
Armenians refer to themselves as Hye, not Armenians. They call their country Hayastan, also sometimes spelled Hayasdan.
I thought it was kind of cool. Check this video out.
