Slovenian term or phrase: Gaysha
This is a song from the Slovenian Group "Sestre" who represented Slovenia in this years Eurovision Song Conest. Can you also tell me what Saki Saki means? This is another track from their album. Thanks :o)

English translation:geisha
Explanation:
Gaysha actualy doesn't mean anything. It's misspeled japaneese word geisha - concubine or very sophisticated call girl. Look it up.

Saki saki comes from the same woods.

And - Sestre (Sisters) are transvestite group. Just in case you didn't notice. ;-)
