Rhapsody

What language is this?

Recommended Posts

So I've got these songs from Cirque du Soleil, and you know Cirque - they're WEIRD. I can't figure out what language these lyrics come from; i had one helluva time just finding the lyrics. There are a few songs, all from Dralion. The first one sounds Hindi, so maybe Indian, phonetically? The second song sounds tribal, very rhythmic. And the last song was performed while Chinese children skipped rope on stage. But I can recognize Chinese, as I am Chinese. So some other Asian language, spelled phonetically?

Rhapsody, if I understand the Cirque du Soleil's style correctly, they often make use of their own peculiar language in their performances -- something that a number of fans have dubbed Cirque-ish.

 

From what I've been able to track down online, only 3 of the songs from the Dralion performance have lyrics in a traditional language -- Ombra (Italian and French), Ballare (Italian) and Miraculam Aeternitatis (Latin). The other songs would then seem to make use of the peculiar "in-house" language of the Cirque.

Thank you both for your help as I was getting cross-eyed trying to figure out what language they are in.

 

Now for translations....lol

 

Lady Celes, how can you tell its a mixture of Spanish and Italian? You would think they'd use French into the made up languages, as they are Canadian based, but guess not.

Well, it have nothing to do with French because they probably don't want their public to recognize any of the words. They also throw in Latin. Now, there's no Italian, nor Spanish nor Latin words but I believe they built this odd language around how these tongues sounds.

 

But then again, I could be totally in the wrong. :pinch:

There are Easterns and Westerns of europeans sounds... there are asian sounds.... there are african sounds. What a weird mix-up but eventually it's without any doubt a music from the world to the world.

 

Not bad. colorfull, very funny and then very circus.
