The Little Ewe


Miorita (“The Little Ewe”) is an old Romanian pastoral ballad, considered one of the most important pieces of Romanian folklore. It exalts the affective bonding between the shepherd and it’s sheep and reveals a time where the sacred and mystical element was still so rich and existent within the agrarian and farming context.
