"Shish nani" is an Abkhazian song that is also called a Muhajir lullaby. It describes the hardships and pain that people felt during the exile of the Abkhazians. This song is the lullaby that a mother sang to her dead infant to prevent it from being thrown into the sea. Thousands of mahajirs did not reach Turkey.
