>Dear Supporter,
>The Save Chechnya Campaign needs help in translating a selection of
>Chechen songs and ballads into English. He/she must have a good command
>of English and of course an excellent knowledge of the Chechen
>language. The translations need not in perfect English however they
>should capture the full meaning of the words/lyrics. Even if someone
>has the time to do one song only, then even that would still be very
>helpful in moving this project forward.
>The project is to put together an anthology of Chechen songs and
>ballads which express Chechen experiences and emotions through the
>suffering of past and present conflicts.
>Some of the songs are sung by the Imam Alimsultanov who was
>assassinated in the First War. His music was synonymous with Chechen
>Resistance and he can well be considered to be the Bard of the original
>Chechen Independence movement. There are also songs by Timur Mucaraev
>who sings in Russian about the onslaughts on Grozny and the plight of
>the Russian soldier. Also included is traditional Chechen sufi Zhikr.
>The music itself is rich and melodic. Making their meanings available
>would help the outside world understand the deep rooted sentiment for
>freedom amongst Chechens and the terrible tribulations they have
>endured over the last 2 centuries.
>Once the songs are translated into English, the music and accompanying
>translation would then be made available on our website in an
>appropriate multimedia setting.
>If you are interested in this post, please reply to this email with
>your details. Please feel free to circulate this email to anyone you
>feel may be suitable for the post.
