Sarinande is a traditional Moluccan (Maluku) song about a girl named Sarinande. She cries as if smoke gets in her eyes because she feels uneasy. Cherly dedicated this arrangement for her late brother, who passed away in 2012. He was a volunteer teacher in North Maluku. The intro of this arrangement was inspired by the waves in the Maluku sea Cherly has seen in the documentaries of her late brother. (May 2nd, 2015)

Sarinande, putri Sarinande

Mengapa tangis matamu bangka’?

Aduh mama, aduhlah papa

Bak asap api maso’ di mata

Aduh mama, aduhlah papa

Hati risau apalah obatnya.
