Sejdefu majka buđaše (English: Seydefa's Mother Wakes Her) is a Bosnian[1][2] traditional folk and sevdalinka song.[3][4][5]

Origins[edit]

Sejdefu majka buđaše is a traditional song that is believed to have originated in Sarajevo centuries ago, while the region of Bosnia was a part of the Ottoman Empire.[6] The exact author is unknown.

Over the centuries, the song spread amongst the Bosniak populations in Podgorica and the Sandžak regions of Montenegro and Serbia.

Lyrics[edit]

Original English translation
Sejdefu majka buđaše
ustani kćeri moja, Sejdefo
Zar misliš majko
da ja spim
ja ti se mlada s dušom dijelim
zovi mi majko komšije
i prvo moje gledanje
što smo se majko gledali
u šajku lađu na more
Sejdefa's mother wakes her
Rise, my daughter Sejdefa!
Do you think, mother
that I'm asleep?
At this young age, I'm parting with my soul.
Call the neighbors, mother
And my first love.
The one whose eyes met mine
On a boat out at sea.
