About the Song: "Pamulinawen is translated as alabaster, which is a very hard stone, here symbolizing the resistance of a woman to her lover's courtship gestures. In this light-hearted courting song, the lover pleads to be noticed, but gives greater emphasis to the delight stirred by the thought of his beloved. Like many folksongs, Pamulinawen has different versions, lyrics and exact melody."
