For many decades, Babanova’s voice was heard on the radio, seemingly separated from the actress' real age and fate. It began our workweeks and transformed them, perked up our ears, worked on the imaginations of both children and adults. Her voice was compared to a silver bell, and surprised and inspired with its melodic sound. In it was something unlikely. Babanova, it seemed, released intangible things from their captivity: music, poetry, the soul. And thanks to Babanova, we know that the eternal experience of love can be heard in Tanya’s simplest song. We knew how the Lady of the Copper Mountain laughed, and believed that Olje Lukøje would appear both to us and then to our children in dreams.
