”Mi još vagamo koje nam je ime draže, a imenovanje benda je veoma teška rabota”, kaže frontmen benda Chaise R. Levy.

Muzička grupa iz Los Anđelesa, za koju je crnogorska javnost nedavno saznala, promijenila je ime Sinjajevina u Caravan zbog novih članova, ali i zbog toga što su njihovi obožavaoci imali problema da to ime izgovaraju, objasnio je, u intervjuu za portal PCNEN, frontmen benda Chaise R. Levy.

”Mi još vagamo koje nam je ime draže, a imenovanje benda je veoma teška rabota”, kaže Levy.

Zdravo momci i djevojke. Ovdje je portal www.pcnen.com iz Crne Gore, gdje se nalazi planina Sinjajevina, čije ime nosi vaša grupa. Željeli bismo da razgovaramo sa vama, poručili smo bendu iz Los Anđelesa, nakon što smo saznali njihovu e-mail adresu.

Prethodno smo, kao i još neki crnogorski mediji objavili zanimljivu vijest o postojanju ove muzičke grupe.

Na poruku nam je odgovorio Chaise R. Levy, gitarista.

Prvo nas je zanimalo zašto su svome bendu dali ime po crnogorskoj planini, i to onoj koja nije izvikana kao neke druge.

LEVY: Dobili smo ime zato što nas je zainteresovala ljepota planine Sinjajevine. Mi smo to osjetili zato što smo naš bend bazirali na narodnoj muzici, a predivna priča nam je govorila da treba da imamo ime koje će to i da izrazi na slikovit način. Nakon gledanja emisije o Crnoj Gori na jednom turističkom tv kanalu, ja nijesam mogao a da ne  budem zadivljen ljepotom Sinjajevine i  razabrao sam da je to savršeno ime za slikovitost koju smo nastojali da prizovemo.

PCNEN: Prije nego vam postavim još nekoliko pitanja, želim da vam pošaljem amaterski prepjev na engleski jedne narodne pjesme o planini Sinjajevini. Volio bih da komentarišete te stihove.

Molim dobre poznavateljke/poznavaoce engleskog da prevedu kratku narodnu pjesmu:

Oj, planino, moj’ planino.
Moj, prostrana Sinjaj’vino,
U tebi su preko zime
Ravna brda i doline,
Sve od leda i snijega
Niđe krša ni brijega;
L’jepo li je u proljeće
Planinama brat’ cvijeće,
A još ljepše usred ljeta,
Planinama kad se šeta,
I neđelje ići svake
U zelene borovnjake.

LEVY:  Mislim da je pjesma prelijepa. Nikada nijesam bio na Sinjajevini, ali iz fotografija koje sam vidio, pjesma savršeno opisuje zadivljujuću idiličnu prirodu koja vam se otkriva tamo i stvara mi želju da jednoga dana, ako mognem, posjetim Crnu Goru.

PCNEN: Postavio bih vam još dva pitanja. Koliko vi poznajete crnogorsku narodnu muziku, odnosno narodnu muziku sa poluostrva Balkana?

LEVY: Ne poznajem mnogo narodnu muziku sa Balkana, osim ono što sam čuo prekointerneta. Trenutno, ja nastojim da proširim izbor muzike koju slušam i planiram  da naučim više o  balkanskoj narodnoj muzici.

PCNEN: Da li je ‘Sinjajevina’ već svirala negdje u Evropi?

LEVY: Nažalost, Sinjajevina nije nastupala van Kaliformije. Mi još stvaramo bazu naših obožavalaca i nastojimo da skupimo dovoljno ljubitelja naše muzike tako da možemo skupiti novac za nastupe u drugim djelovima naše zemlje, a onda da krenemo planirati i odlazak u Evropu.

PCNEN: Hvala vam puno Levy i puno sreće Vašem bendu.

Sinjajevina became Caravan

Sinjajevina, Los Angeles band, now called Caravan.

”We changed the band name, due to new members joining and also with having trouble with people not being able to pronounce the name. We are still in the a deciding period on which name we prefer, naming a band is very difficult”, explained in an interview for the portal PCNEN, frontman of the band, Chaise R Levy, gitarist.

Hi guys and girls. Here is a portal www.pcnen.com from Montenegro, where there is a mountain Sinjajevina, whose name you took the name of your band. We would like to talk to you, we sent a message to the band from Los Angeles, after we find  their e-mail address.

Previously, we and some other Montenegrin media published an interesting news on the existence of this band.

Chaise R. Levy, guitarist, has responded positively.

PCNEN: We are interested in why you named your band Sinjajevina?

LEVY: We got our name from an interest in the beauty of the Sinjajevina mountains. We felt that because we were basing our band on folk music, and beautiful story telling that we should have a name that reflected that sort of imagery. After watching a travel channel TV show about montenegro, I could not help but be in awe of the beauty of Sinjajevina and I decided that it was the perfect name for the imagery that we were trying to invoke.

PCNEN: Thank Chaise. Before you ask a few questions, I would like to send you a amateurish translation of the English folk song about Sinjajevina. I’d like you to comment on these verses.

Oh, the mountain, my grand mountain,
My spacious Sinjajevina.
During winter you are flat.
Because of snowdrift,
Can’t see rubble nider cam.
Everywhere is snow calm.
It’s my pleasure during spring
through your peaks flower picking
Summer time is most pleasant for walk,
every Sunday through blueberry bushes.

LEVY: I think that this poem is very beautiful, I have never been to Sinjajevina but from the pictures that I have seen the poem perfectly describes the amazing pastoral nature that you would find there, and makes me wish that I can one day visit Montenegro.

PCNEN: I have two more questions. How you know Montenegrin folk music and folk music from the Balkan Peninsula?

LEVY: I do not know very much folk music from the Balkan, and what I have heard is through the internet, at this point I am still continuing to expand the music that I listen to, and I plan on learning more about Balkan folk music.

PCNEN: Is ‘Sinjajevina’ already playing somewhere in Europe?

LEVY: Unfortunately Sinjajevina has not preformed anywhere outside of California, we are still gathering a fan base, and trying to get a following so that we can raise the money to plan in other parts of our country, and then move on to planning in Europe.

PCNEN: I see that you have, meanwhile, changed the name of your band. Now your band called Caravan. Why did you change the name? This would be my last question for you.

LEVY:

PCNEN: Thank you very much Levy and good luck to your band.
