The Red Sarafan

"Red Sarafan" is one of the most famous Russian folk songs. It was composed by A. E. Varlamov (1801-1848), on a poem that was written in 1832 by N. G. Tsyganov (1797-1832). The song got known with the first line of the lyrics "Do not sew me, mother, a red sarafan", as often did happen at that time. The title "Red Sarafan" only appeared after the song had become popular.
