Cîntec Oltenesc [Song of Oltenia] was originally released by Tudor Gheorghe on his 1975 album Cântece de Dragoste de Ţară (Songs of the Love of Country). It is a patriotic song about the Oltenia region of Romania comparing natural features with items of Oltenian daily life. It is based on a poem by Virgil Carianopol from his book Scrisul Romanesc [Romanian Writings]. For this version Daria has updated the feel of the song, while staying true to the original, making it more accessible to modern listeners which, along with Daria‘s excellent singing, makes this short performance a must see, and listen to, experience. The video also contains an English translation of the lyrics as closed captions so that you can follow what she is singing about, the Hen and (golden) featherless chicken constellation refers to in the song is a reference to The Pleiades star system.
