Hi caballero!

This song is typical traditional Croatian love song. The Title is Red Rose. This kind of music is typical for continental Croatia, Hungary and Vojvodina (northern Serbia), which would be more Central European then East with tamburica (mandoline like instrument/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamburica) as leading instrument.

In original it's preformed by the Band called Agrameri (German name for capital Zagreb is Agram), so boys from Zagreb sing about Red Rose and here you have translated:
Red Rose

My red rose
my unplucked love
you're my only pain
the tear of my youth

Ref.
Tell her that without her
all of love's hope has vanished
all of happiness', sorrows
that I still love her
and that I can't live without her
without my red rose

Years have gone by
my unplucked love
you're still my only pain
the tear of my youth

Ref.

That I still love her
and that I can't live without her
without my red rose
The link you posted is what is typical version from Slavonia region.
Here you can hear original: _http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taqIbCg6s4M

Enjoy! ;-)

here is something slightly different, it is a traditional Dalmatian song, circa 13th century, author unknown (it was used as opening theme in the movie La reine Margot )

Here's a traditional tune (with a slightly faster tempo :scared:) from Bulgaria, played by legendary Irish trad. band 'Planxty'.

and here is Serbian band Orthodox Celts performing Rocky Road to Dublin
technically not a song from Eastern Europe but the performer is ;) and it ties well with Perceval's contribution

and a little bit more of Serbian Gypsy tunes, a scene from the movie Feather Harvesters ( stupidly translated as I Even Meet Happy Gypsies on IMDB) 1967 Cannes film festival winner, sung by Olivera Katarina again, this time in Serbian

Hi, H.E. and Perceval.

Seems that in these regions of Europe was where Gregorian chants originated and some sort of Irish music influenced all the music after the southern of U.S.A. This region attacked and divided Europe seems to be uncomfortable to the political and economics interests of the "Elite" to continue to dominate the world. It's a very interesting region in all aspects not just music.

Hi cabalero...

Although it is a very sad song maybe it was sang to put tots in sleep as it is performed very gently ...On the other side it is very touchy and forcing tears ... i guess it is a kind of reminder of onerous past in this area... in fact "fallen asleep", i guess, is referring that orphan has passed away and "will be awaken by dawn of Judgment Day" (in the last verse)... jet it is one of my favorites....
