Dulamán

Traditional Irish, arr. Meagan Johnson

A cappella four-part women’s chorus with percussion (bodhrán).

This version of Dulamán, which means “seaweed,” hails from county Donegal, on the northwest coast of Ireland. The nonsense quality of the text causes this tune to be categorized as a children’s song, although the translation also points to a courtship; the seaweed may represent various characters in the song.

Premiered by Amasong, May 2, 2009, and included in their new CD release, Everything She Touches Changes.

Dulamán Sample (sung by Amasong):
