I guess I have to be a little more specific about what I mean, because I actually know a lot of traditional songs, especially French ones, that I will not count, like À la claire fontaine or Alouette, gentille alouette… I’m a folkdancer, and to some dances that we do there is sometimes a song. These are the songs I’m talking about!

I’ll try to list the songs I already know. In order to write the name of the song, I have to be able to sing the whole thing (because there are lots of songs I know partly).
1. Setnja (serbian)
2. Nabrala (croatian)
3. Svatba e (bulgarian)
4. Lesnoto medley (macedonian)
5. Lora csikos lora (hungarian)
6. Ma navu (israelian)
7. Mavi buncuk (turkish)
8. Le mois de mai/laridé (french)
I’m right now working on Somogyi karikazo (hungarian), I know about 80% of it.
Tomorrow I’m meeting with some friends and we’ll sing some folksongs that we dance to.
The next one on my list is Körtanc, a Hungarian dance that is done on a beautiful song, and I finally got the lyrics after years of research!
