  • Description: Maria Tănase (25 September 1913 - 22 June 1963) was a Romanian singer of traditional and popular music.
    For the Romanians, and not only for them, she symbolizes what Edith Piaf, and Amália Rodrigues are meaning for French, respectively Portuguese people, as well as for the Universal Culture.
    For those loving Fado this is a good sample of Romanian saudades named: dor!

    Born in the Bucharest suburb of Cărămidari, Maria Tănase studied at the primary school making her first stage debut in Caramidarii de Jos, then on the stage of Ion Heliade Rădulescu High School. In 1934, she joined the Cărăbuş Theatre of Constantin Tănase on the advice of newspaper writer Sandu Eliad. Her debut took place on June 2, 1937 with the stage name of Mary Atanasiu in the musical hall theatres, Alhambra and Gioconda.
    On February 20, 1937 she made her radio debut and fame came shortly after in 1938, when she made her first recordings for Romanian Society of Radio. These recordings were destroyed in 1940 by the anti-semitic Iron Guard.
    She represented Romania at the International Exhibition in Paris in 1937. Together with George Enescu, George Vraca and Constantin Tănase, she organized a series of shows for the injured soldiers on the battlefield on World War II.
    In December 1943, she sang at the Christmas festivities at the Royal Cavalry Regiment, where King Michael I of Romania, Ion Antonescu, Mihai Antonescu and all the members of the government were present as guests. After World War II, she performed in the Review Ensemble and the Satirical and Musical Theatre Constantin Tănase.
    She had parts in the plays The Living Corpse by Leo Tolstoy in 1945, and Horia by Mihai Davidoglu in 1956.
    In 1944 Maria Tănase sang in Edmond Audran's operetta Mascota (The Mascot).
    In 1946 she held the main part in the musical comedy The Hollywood Sphinx, by Ralph Benatzky.
    She sang in the movie Romania in 1947, and in 1958 she performed in both Ciulinii Bărăganului (The Thistles of the Bărăgan), and the short-reel film Amintiri din Bucureşti (Memories from Bucharest).
    In 1955, she received the State Prize and in 1957 she was honored with the medals Ordinul Muncii (The Order for Activity), Premiul de Stat (The State Award), and the title Artistă Emerită (Honoured Artist of the Republic) for her contributions to the arts.
    Maria Tanase appears as a character in Olivia Manning's Fortunes of War trilogy's first novel set in Bucharest.
    She toured many times in the last 15 years of her life, including over forty trips to New York City.

    Lume lume (Romanian Lyrics):

    Lume, lume, soră lume
    Lume, lume, soră lume
    Când să mă satur de tine
    Când să mă satur de tine
    Lume, soră lume
    Când s-o lăsa sec de pâine
    Şi păhăruţul de mine
    Poate-atunci m-oi sătura
    Poate-atunci m-oi sătura
    Când o suna scândura
    Când o suna scândura
    Lume, soră lume
    Când m-or băga in mormânt
    Şi n-oi mai fi pe pământ
    Lume, soră lume
    Aşa-i lumea trecătoare
    C-aşa-i lumea trecătoare
    Unul naşte altul moare
    Unul naşte altul moare
    Lume, soră lume
    Ăl de naşte necăjeşte
    Ăl de moare putrezeşte
    Lume, soră lume
    C-aşa-i lumea trecătoare
    Unul naşte altul moare
    Lume, soră lume
    Ăl de naşte necăjeşte
    Ăl de moare putrezeşte
    Lume, soră lume


    World, world (English Lyrics- approximate translation):

    World, world, sister world
    World, world, sister world
    When will I have enough of you?
    When will I have enough of you?
    When I'll give up bread for Lent
    And the glass will give up on me
    Maybe then I'll have enough of you
    Maybe then I'll have enough of you
    When they hammer the nails on my coffin
    When they hammer the nails on my coffin
    World, sister world
    When they put me in my grave
    And I won't be on earth anymore
    World, sister world
    That's how the world is, transient
    'Cause that's how the world is, transient
    One is born, another dies
    One is born, another dies
    World, sister world
    The born one suffers
    The dead one rots
    'Cause that's how the world is, transient
    One is born, another dies
    World, sister world
    The born one suffers
    The dead one rots
    World, sister world

    * Note:
    "Cand s-o lasa sec de paine" - "When I give up bread for Lent" is a very loose translation.
    Romanians have "selective" fasting on Wednesdays and Fridays and certain periods of the year.
    Those days they give up meat for Lent, and anything of animal origin.However, bread is such a basic food in Romania that giving up bread for Lent would be unimaginable, and it doesn't exist as a tradition. A very exact translation of "When I give up bread for Lent" would be "never".
    Same with "when the glass will give up on me; which is meant to be the other way around, "when I give up drinking", which again has the meaning of "never".
