I like to sing this song to Koko. It's been in my memory since my childhood. I especially recall the version I've seen in the movie "Sjecas li se, Dolly Bell?" directed by Emir Kusturica in 1981. Originally it is not at all a lullaby, but since it's dear to my heart, it love to sing it to my daughter.

Every time it rains, I sing this Croatian lullaby to Koko.
Rain is a powerful reminder of our fertile nature, and in Balkan tradition it has been worshiped by powerful rituals - as Marina Abramovic so nicely reminded us in her video Balkan Erotic Epic. It was raining when Koko was born and I feel a special connection with the rain. It makes me feel at home everywhere I am.
