Biography

Aleksandar Sarievski (Macedonian: Александар Сариевски) (June 20, 1922 – December 19, 2002) was an iconic singer-songwriter from the Republic of Macedonia whose career spanned almost six decades. He was one of the most recognizable figures in Macedonian music.

Sarievski was a co-founder of the folklore musical ensemble Tanec and frequently traveled with the group as an ambassador of Macedonian music and culture. His renditions of local folk songs are particularly well known and, in many cases, the first known recorded versions. These include "Jovano, Jovanke", "More Sokol Pie", "Makedonsko Devojče" and "Uči me majko, karaj me", among others. The popular folk song "Zajdi Zajdi" is also attributed to him.

Aleksandar Sarievski passed away on December 19, 2002, at the age of eighty.

Зајди зајди јасно сонце

Зајди, зајди јасно сонце,
Зајди помрачи се,
И ти јасна ле, месечино,
Бегај удави се.

Црнеј горо, црнеј сестро,
Двајца да црнејме,
Ти за твој'те лисја ле, горо,
Јас за мој'та младост.

Твој'те лисја, горо сестро,
Пак ќе ти се вратат,
Мој'та младост горо ле, сестро,
Нема да се врати.

Зајди зајди, јасно сонце
Зајди помрачи се,
И ти јасна ле месечоно,
Бегај удави се.

Црнеј Горо, Црнеј сестро,
Дајцата црнејме,
Ти за твојте лисја ле горо,
Јас за мојта младост.

Твојте лисја горо ле сестро,
Пак ке ти се вратат,
Мојта младост горо ле сестро,
Нема да се врати.

Translation

O set, o set, clear Sun,
Set, go dark,
And you too o, clear Moon,
Begone, drown yourself.

Darken o, forest, darken o, sister,
Let us both get dark,
You for your leaves o, forest,
Me for my youth.

Your leaves o, forest, o, sister,
Will be back again,
My youth o, forest, o, sister,
Will never return.
