Carahunge is a folk-rock band from Armenia, formed with the intention of reviving folk masterpieces and old tunes shrouded in mysticism in a modern way. Their version of "Sari Sirun Yar" (“Mountain Beauty”)—a pleasant, upbeat love song—features back-and-forth male and female vocals with a guitar strum, light drumming, and shvi (an Armenian fipple flute made from apricot wood) in the backdrop.

Excerpt (Translated by us)   

The chorus of this love ballad goes as follows:

Beautiful Mountain Girl,
Bring me a mountain carnation,
Oh, what carnation?
Bring me the flames of love!
