Siebenbürgenlied (composed by Maximilian Leopold Moltke)

1. Siebenbürgen, Land des Segens,
Land der Fülle und der Kraft,
Mit dem Gürtel der Karpaten
Um das grüne Kleid der Saaten,
Land voll Gold und Rebensaft.

2. Siebenbürgen, Meeresboden
Einer längst verfloss’nen Flut!
Nun ein Meer von Ährenwogen,
Dessen Ufer waldumzogen
An der Brust des Himmels ruht!

3. Siebenbürgen, Land der Trümmer
Einer Vorzeit stark und groß,
Deren tausendjähr’ge Spuren
Ruhen noch in deinen Fluren
Ungeschwächtem Ackerschoß.

4. Siebenbürgen, grüne Wiege
Einer bunten Völkerschar!
Mit dem Klima aller Zonen,
Mit dem Kranz der Nationen
Um des Vaterlands Altar!

5. Siebenbürgen, grüner Tempel
Mit der Berge hohem Chor,
Wo der Andacht Huldigungen
Steigen in so vielen Zungen
Zu dem einen Gott empor!

6. Siebenbürgen, Land der Duldung
Jedes Glaubens sich’rer Hort.
Mögst du bis zu fernen Tagen
Als ein Hort der Freiheit ragen
Und als Wehr dem freien Wort!

7. Siebenbürgen, süße Heimat,
Unser teures Vaterland!
Sei gegrüßt in deiner Schöne,
Und um alle deine Söhne
Schlinge sich der Eintracht Band!

Cântecul Transilvaniei

1. Transilvanie, mândră ţară
cu puteri şi bogăţii
de Carpaţi împrejmuită,
cu verdeaţă răsădită,
plai cu aur şi cu vii.

2. Transilvanie, ţărm de mare
răsărit din vechi talaz,
astăzi spice-n legănare
odihnesc la sân de zare
între maluri verzi de brazi.

3. Transilvanie, vechi ruine
dintr-un ev îndepărtat,
urme mari şi milenare
odihnesc sub glia care
rodnicia şi-a păstrat.

4. Transilvanie, leagăn verde
pentru oricare vlăstar,
reuneşti climele toate,
naţiuni, cununi purtate
pe al patriei altar.

5. Transilvanie, plai de graiuri
diferite-n fel şi ton,
dar în rugăciuni unite
urcă limbile-mpărţite
spre dumnezeiescul tron.

6. Transilvanie tolerantă
adăpost credinţelor,
până-n zile-ndepărtate
apără în libertate
fiinţa cuvintelor.

7. Transilvanie patrie dulce,
ţară a părinţilor,
frumuseţe, slavă ţie,
fii tăi în armonie
să-i unească doar un dor. (traducere de Dan Dănilă)

Impletit cu putin misticism dar suna destul de tolerant, nu? Asta e Transilvania care-mi place.
It has some mystical references but it sounds pretty tolerant, isn't it? This is the Transylvania I like.
It is an anthem which promotes tolerance among people (even religious tolerance). It seems that that spirit of tolerance survived because we didn't have civil war like others in similar situations. Did you know that Transylvanian Unitarian Church is the oldest Unitarian church in the world? Being isolated, it has remained just a theistic church but still, it is a very tolerant form of religion. Dennett said that we can't kill the religious viruses but we should encourage the mild version of them to exist. This church promotes this kind of mild version of religion. Let's not allow ourselves to be turned against each other, one ethnic group against the other, we just become easily controlled by outsiders and not by ourselves. We also have to know our history and be aware of our culture (with different ethnic varieties).

By the way, the dance which you like is called Barbunc and it is from my mother's birthplace, from Nasaud.

I keep coming back to watch the gianeasca de la mama ei video, not just for the dancing, but for the music.
