AN ORIGINAL SANTHARIAN SONG
This is a children's song from West-Central Santharia, often sung as a delightful pre-lullaby to get tired children into their sleepsmocks and onto their pillows. The chorus, nonsense imitation of the riccio's chortle though it be, is remarkably catchy and one may often find it still 'stuck' in the ear after singing it the night before!

Please note that the last word of the chorus is more of a sort of full-body 'shudder' which mimes the characteristic little quill-rattle of a woebegone pricklepig, and one of the children's favourite parts... Return to the top

AN ORIGINAL SANTHARIAN SONG
This song is from the Kuglimz peoples and is a traditional song, sung at weddings and births to welcome the beloved into the family or the new baby into the community. At weddings, the song is traditionally sung by the fa'limus (bridegroom) and ewyn'limus (bride) to each other, sometimes together, sometimes separately, and sometimes alternating verses and singing the chorus together. When sung for a new baby, the parents usually sing it together when the child is formally welcomed into the community. It may be done with or without instrumental accompaniment.

AN ORIGINAL SANTHARIAN SONG
The Sleepy Mice are definitely among the strangest species of Santharia that every mother and child know about. When it's dusk and the the Injr is settling to rest these tiny critters will appear and nibble on the babies sending them in the land of dreams. Need some music to accompany their appearance? - Then look no longer! Return to the top

AN ORIGINAL SANTHARIAN SONG
This song is one of a cycle which Bard Judith has composed and plans to perform before the Masters in Bardavos to earn her third bard's ring. It is dedicated to her friend and compeer in music, the bard Gean Firefeet. The subject, while ostensibly about one of the treacherously lovely islands in the Scattersand Shoal archipelago, 'Zandiria', also alludes to the journey we all must take at the end of our lives.

AN ORIGINAL SANTHARIAN SONG
At the end of the day, the Pig-and-Whistle is the tavern to be. Like every pub you've ever wanted to live in, it's the place where everybody knows your name, the fire is always roaring and the ale is always frothing. Yup, the benches and tables are made of heavy scarred wood, with generations of students and artists' carvings dug into them, and the big iron sconces hold the requisite dripping candles. There is a bountifully buxom barmaid, and the innkeep is a sturdy fellow with sharp but kindly eyes. Judith of Bardavos got her start here; neither she nor the tavern will ever forget that, so she is a regular performer on the Pig's stage, when she is in town. Today she sings the song "Santharian Ale" for you! Return to the top
