I heard this song while watching it on TV with my wifey, on CCTV-4 (China Central Television) It got stuck in my head, and so now I unleash it upon 419eater, muwahahaah! Er... its a cute song actually.

http://yunol.stes.tc.edu.tw/sounds/love_song/lucky_three_treasure.mp3

The version I heard was the first part in Mandarin, and then the last part in Mongolian, which I haven't yet found, but I found the 'original' Mongolian only. Its cute though! Smile

[edit]

This is where I actually found it, and the Mandarin/Mongolian version is in there somewhere too:

Slight correction. Seems the title is "chandman erdene", "吉祥三宝"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87kwL5wXDqc

Still very cute and catchy song though. Smile

It's so cute!

I wish I knew what the lyrics were in English, though. My googlesearch was not productive.

I don't want to guess the number - But, lad, isn't that the best fun to be had with MoneyGram reference numbers?

I know right!? Well after digging deeper on Youtube, the young girl grew up a little more, but still sings with mum and dad.

This is a very good song, but very sad sounding; I may not know Mongolian either, but from the title in english obviously, her dad is gone far away and she misses him very much..aww! Sad

Also there is this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzuP1G4iQH0
A kind of documentary about her and her singing. The first part is already the same song I first posted, but if you watch it through there are some other interesting stuff. I kinda want their CD, will have to get wifey to help me through all the Chinese, since there is also Chinese songs/titles.

I think they are from Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region part of China.

[edit]
Yea lyrics search turned up nothing, and all you can really get is a title translation from google. *sigh*

I love 'Father in Ulan Bator' - it's so good!

Have you seen this one?:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5abJ3JKZsI

I am not (absolutely not) the sort of person who likes cutsey children videos - but this is so sweet! I want to adopt the entire family.

Yea it just gets to you whether you like it or not, hehe. Yea I also like that one. So it seems that girl has had quite a singing career, and now is well established. I really wouldn't mind buying some of their albums, but as I said before, I have to get help from wifey, since I can't read Chinese.

I had a look on Amazon.co.uk this morning, to see if one could buy albums here. Answer: no. Not through Amazon, anyway.

'Contemporary version'? Personally, I prefer the images of the plains and the horses.... probably far removed from the real lives of the singers, in reality, but it's still a nice image.......

Well yea, but I wasn't focusing on the imagery, but the younger version of her singing the same song.

I found his name on wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buren_Bayaer :

Quote:

From Wikipedia

Buren Bayar is a singer, composer and a disc jockey in China. He is an Inner Mongolian and was born in 1960.

His song "Chandmani Erdene" (Mongolian: Wish-fulfilling Treasure) has become very popular in China in recent years. The song is originally sung in Mongolian, although another version sung in Mandarin Chinese (Chinese title: 吉祥三寶) has been released afterwards.


Unfortunately thats all there is, as well as some external links.

Re: the second link - so the girl is his neice and not his daughter? Or is that a different girl?

I tried entering 'Buren Bayaer' into Amazon search.

It asked me if I meant 'Burn Babar'.

Apparently there is a book called 'Should we burn Babar?'

No, that is not what I meant!

I don't know, since I thought it was her at an older age. *shrug*

Unfortunately it looks like none of the western music outlets will carry it, unless you ask them to 'special order' it. The only alternative is (if you know Chinese, or know someone who does), have them search on the Chinese search engine baidu.com for any other information.

The only other problem is buying CDs from such far away places can be rather expensive. Sad *sigh*

Ok, I found another version of 'Father in Ulan Bator', with country scenes (no contemporary scenes), but with the younger version of the girl singing. Still, I don't think it matters that I'm posting the same song again. This is really a good song, and I would love to buy their albums. Their songs are just amazing, and at times touching. Doesn't matter whether or not you understand the language, because you can feel it's impact just as strongly.

This one: Father's Prairie, Mother's River

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riaP4QhvYi4&feature=related

uses much of the same video shots, but with a different song. I think (without any knowledge of what the lyrics are, mind you!) that the video seems to suit this one better - though it, to me, is not such a good song as Father in Ulan Bator.

Edited to add: I've just found this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqzvT1RkP5I

Discovery documentary on the family - in English! I've only just started watching it: but there's some English subtitling of lyrics too! Parts 2 and 3 are on the right.

*UPDATE*

I managed to find the lyrics and translation to "Lucky Three Treasure"

Chinese version:
Quote:

-爸爸,太阳出来月亮回家了吗?
–bà bà , tài yáng chū lái yuè liàng huí jiā le mā ?
-对阿。
–duì a.
-星星出来,太阳去哪里啦?
–xīng xīng chū lái , tài yáng qù nǎ lǐ lā ?
-在天上。
–zài tiān shàng
-我怎么找也找不到它 。
–wǒ zěn me zhǎo yě zhǎo bú dào tā .
-它回家了。
–tā huí jiā le.
太阳,星星,月亮就是吉祥的一家。
tài yáng, xīng xīng, yuè liàng jiù shì jí xiáng de yì jiā .

-妈妈,叶子绿了什么时候开花?
–mā mā , yè zí lü4 le shěn me shí hòu kāi huā ?
-等夏天来了。
–děng xià tiān lái le.
-花儿红了果子能够摘吗?
–huā er hóng le guǒ zí néng gòu zhāi mā ?
-等秋天到了。
–děng qiū tiān dào le.
-果实种在土里能发芽吗?
–guǒ shí zhòng zài tǔ lǐ néng fā yá mā ?
-它会长大的。
–tā huì zhǎng dà de.
花儿,叶子,果实就是吉祥的一家。
huā er, yè zí , guǒ shí jiù shì jí xiáng de yì jiā .

-宝贝,爸爸像太阳照着妈妈
–bǎo bèi , bà bà xiàng tài yáng zhào zhuó mā mā
-那妈妈呢?
–nà mā mā ne?
-妈妈像绿叶托着红花
–mā mā xiàng lü4 yè tuō zhuó hóng huā .
-那我呢?
–nà wǒ ne?
-你像种子一样正在发芽。
–nǐ xiàng zhǒng zi yí yàng zhèng zài fā yá .
我们三个就是吉祥如意的一家。
wǒ mén sān gè jiù shì jí xiáng rú yì de yì jiā .

– Baba, When the sun rises, is the moon back at home?
– That is right.
– When the star is out, where is the sun?
– in the sky.
– I look for it, but I cannot find it.
– It goes home.
The sun, the moon, the star are a lucky family.

– Mama, leaves are green, when does the flower bloom?
– Wait till summer comes.
– When flowers are red, can we pick the fruits?
– Wait till autumn comes.
– Fruit is planted in the soil, can it grow up?
– It will grow up.
Flower, Leaf, and fruit are a lucky family.

– Baby, your daddy is like the sun, shining over your mom.
– How about Mommy?
– Mommy is like the green leaf, holding the red flower.
– Then how about me?
– You are like a seed, you are growing up.
We three are a lucky happy family.


Mama: Mom (obvious)
Ba ba: Dad

Don't mean to drag an old thread, but had to since I found kind of an update to this artist:
