madara supernova 2018 1

Latvia’s Supernova only has one entry in the national language. And it comes from Madara Fogelmane in the form of the touching string ballad “Esamiba”.

MADARA (Madara Fogelmane) has played the cello since childhood, honing her skills through study in both Amsterdam and Brussels. It was only in 2017 that she started to perform as both a cellist and singer.

Her song is a meditative study on living life to the full and realising that joy is closer than you think. As she says in the Esamiba lyrics: “When you look into yourself and your being,
Find peace in your existence. Don’t hide from what is present within you, For in this world is where your happiness lies.”

“Esamiba” lyrics – Madara (Latvia’s Supernova 2018)

Original lyrics

Kad iel?kojies sev?, sav? b?t?b?.
Atrodi mieru sav? esam?b?.
Nav noz?mes sl?pties no t?, kas Tev? m?t,
Jo pasaul?t izr?d?s, ka tur tava laime m?t.

Kad piemirstas kad?l,
Kad piemirstas kur,
Kad piemirstas viss, kurp doites,
Aizver acis un patveries sav? klusum?…

 

Aiz m?ko?ain?m gub?m un skrienoš?m dom?m
Gaiši zila debess sp?d, vai saule vai lietus list.
Kad Tevi rauj, rauj proj?m, parauj sevi atpaka?;
T? tava dz?ve, Tava …Tava br?v?ba.

 

Kad piemirstas kad?l,
Kad piemirstas kur,
Kad piemirstas viss, kurp doites,
Aizver acis un patveries sav? klusum?…

T? tava dz?ve, tava d?vana,
Tava diena…
Tava elpa, tava b?t?ba
Tava esam?ba.

T? tava dz?ve, tava d?vana,
Tava diena…
Tava elpa, tava b?t?ba
Tava esam?ba.

English translation

When you look into yourself and your being,
Find peace in your existence.
Don’t hide from what is present within you,
For in this world is where your happiness lies.

When forgetting why,
When forgetting where,
When forgetting which way to go,
Close your eyes and shelter in your silence.

 

Behind the towering clouds and racing thoughts,
The light blue heavens shine, whether with sun or rain.
When you are pulled, torn away, pull yourself back.
That is your life, your, your freedom.

 

When forgetting why,
When forgetting where,
When forgetting which way to go,
Close your eyes and shelter in your silence.

For that is your life, your gift,
Your day…
Your breath, your being,
Your existence.

For that is your life, your gift,
Your day…
Your breath, your being,
Your existence

Looks like that in your page doesn’t recognise the Latvian special keyboard characters. :/
