Ileana Sararoiu


Ileana Sararoiu

Ileana Sararoiu (Romanian: Ileana Sărăroiu) (25 September 1936–12 May1979) was a great Romanian singer of traditional, popular/folk music, renowned for her beautiful, sentimental songs. While not so much talked-about like the great Maria Tănase, she still remains one of the most important Romanian female folk singers alongside Maria Tănase, Maria Lătăretu (belonging to the first generation of great Romanian folk singers), or Maria Ciobanu (belonging to the second). She was loved for her unmistakable silky, warm voice and the enchanting beauty of the lyrics in most of her songs. Her song-masterpieces, according to Romanian experts, are: "Doi voinici din Valea Mare" and "Unde e Targovistea". The first is a beautifully-rendered folkloric song about two lads who went hunting but, instead, they encountered two sisters to whom they married. The second is an overwhelming story of a sad mother of yore who waits for her son in a train station from some Romanian town but she didn't see anybody came except a girl who, finally, turned out to be somebody dear to his son.
