Soundtrack Q & A
Q: In the movie there's a very sad song, kinda like opera. It's not english and it plays when Borat loses everything. What is the name of this song? (from Michael in UK)
A: The song is actually Macedonian and the name of it is "Zide Zide Jasno Sonce." It is a very sad song. (thanks to Leni Stojcevski, Lemont, Illinois USAadd more info
A: Hey it's "Zajdi Zajdi," a very old yugoslavian song (thanks to Sasha Baron, englandadd more info
A: It's just the Ederlezi, by Goran Bregovic. (thanks to Hercules, Greeceadd more info
A: There was no "Zajdi zajdi" in Borat, you're talking about "Ederlezi"; There's another great song I heard there but it's not credited, the acoustic guitar instrumental "Lullaby for Radmila M." by G. Bregovic. (thanks to Dr X, Australiaadd more info
A: That sad song is one of the most beautifull serbian songs from Kosovo. The title is "Gora jeèi" (thanks to Darko, Serbiaadd more info
A: Ederlezi, real name is Djurdjevdan (St.George's Day) is an old Serbian song (not made by Goran Bregovic). Goran Bregovic made the instrumental that is not listed, but it is played in the movie. "Uspavanka za Radmilu M." or translated on english (Lullaby for Radmila M.) which, more/less, is maybe the most beautiful instrumental, but only a small part was played in the movie (in the chapter "Saying good bye to a prostitute" - movie time 48:40). (thanks to belgrade horseman, belgrade serbiaadd more info
A: No. It is "Dreams" - Vasilisa (thanks to stane, bgadd more info
A: "Gora Jeci" by Brankica Vasic Vasilisa. (thanks to Pametnjakovic, Serbiaadd more info
A: Original song is traditional Serbian DJURDJEVDAN ("St. George's Day"), but in movie it's a version by Serbian/Balcanic gypsies ERDELEZI. (thanks to Dejan, VRANJE, SERBIAadd more info
A: Yes, Zajdi Zajdi is in Borat movie, with no lyrics, just female vocal sings it. (thanks to goranstein, Novi Sad, Serbiaadd more info

Q: When Borat meets Pamela, there were a few lines from a song which I think is an old Bulgarian wedding song. Any details please? (from Jimmy in London)
A: I believe that song is "Djurjevdan" (St. George's Day). I know the song is in it, but I'm not 100 percent sure if it was in the Pamela part. It's a beautiful traditional Serbian/Russian song. (thanks to Pavle, LA Californiaadd more info
A: audio stream of the song (thanks to belgrade horseman, belgrade serbia add more info
A: Actually, Serbian and Bulgarian wedding song, because of mutual music influence in the past... (thanks to Dejan, VRANJE, SERBIAadd more info

Q: In Borat's show and in the movie as well there's a song that plays a lot (it might be his theme song). It's played in his movie preview on youtube and I think it's played in the beginning of his movie. It has a quick solo on what i think is the flula (flute) and it sounds like a Serbo-Bosnian folk song. It might be one of the Romanian songs. Anyone know which one it it? (from Dusko in Chicago, Illinois)
A: The song is called "Magic Mamaliga" and is a Romanian song sang by Goran Bregovich. He took the song from Romania. Is not Bulgarian, Rusian, Serbian or anything else. (thanks to Eryx, Mons Belgiumadd more info

Q: Does anyone have the CORRECT track listing for this? I just got the CD and it's not the way it's labeled on this page. For ex. "In my country there's a problem" is listed as track 6, but only 14 sec. long. The real "In my country..." is track 8, which is titled as "Magic Mamaliga." There are also a total of 18 tracks (14-18 listed as "Untitled Track".) I'd like to know the real titles of the songs. Maybe it's because of the little parts of funny audio from the movie thrown in. Thnx, Ken

This is her signature song which has been covered by virtually every other singer performing Balkan and Romani songs.
