Urre Moora


A universal song about the peaceful feeling of waking up before dawn on the farm.

From Les Chants des Enfants du monde Vol. 2: South India, cildren’s songs from Southern Indian collected by French-Canadian ethnomusicologist Francis Corpataux.

Lyrics of All Around This World version:

Urre moora, urre moora beemban karav
beemban sandonomor keh loh karav
I wake up in the morning and look for the hens,
The peacock at home says Ill find them again.

The original lyrics (a rough translation):

Wake up the peacock and watch the chickens.

The hens are lost. The peacock returned home.

Where did you go last night?
