“My Wolfdog Friend” – Throat Singing, Sung in Dutch by Rowan Hartsuiker

914 views•Oct 5, 2020581ShareSaveRowan Hartsuiker 2K subscribers As part of my personal project “My Life as a Throat Singer”, where I’m planning to share a few personal stories and thoughts in Dutch sung songs using various throat singing techniques, here’s a “praising song” for my beloved dog, Raven. He’s always been a very big inspiration for me. Title: Mijn Wolfhondvriend (My Wolfdog Friend). Original lyrics (Dutch): In de sporen van een wolf, door de kou van de winter, daar volg ik mijn trouwe vriend. En in mijn sporen volgt hij mij. In de sneeuw, mist of regen… in elk seizoen zijn wij samen. Hij volgt mijn sporen overal, zoals ook ik zijn sporen volg. Het is een raaf die ons leidt door ’t land, waarin ik reis. Het is een raaf, waarvan ik leer dat ik hier echt bij jou hoor.

Translated lyrics (English): In the tracks of a wolf, through the cold of winter, there I follow my faithful friend. And in my tracks he follows me. In the snow, fog or rain … we are together in every season. He follows my tracks everywhere just as I follow his tracks. It is a raven that leads us through the land in which I travel. It’s a raven, from which I learn that I really belong here with you.
