Music I like
For a change, here I put some information about some of the music I like.
I will be updating this from time to time.
Baobab: A very old orchestra.
Boubakar Traoré is a Mali genius. I have been to a concert and it was one of the best concerts I have ever seen. Simply amazing! I find his life also very inspiring.
Souad Massi is an Algerian French singer.
Toumani Diabaté is another Malian bloke. Excellent. I love the sound of the kora.
Clip 1 (check after minute 6 for music)
Youssou N'dour is one of the best known Senegalese musicians.
Noa from Israel
The Chaconne played here by Menuhin. Menuhin said once when he was a child he thought that if he could go to the Sistine Chapel and managed to play well enough this piece of music, God would decide to take away all evil from the world. I can imagine the child trying to play that piece better and better.
Belorussian group, cool.
A Fleming who could describe very well Belgium, many French think he is French!
Karen has an angelic voice. Music from the Hebrides.
Good for focusing.
Peter Fox (Germany): Cool musician from Berlin
Haus am See
2RaumWohnung (Germany): Another pop group in Berlin
Elain und ich
The Erlkönig (not the best interpretation, but what I found in Youtube), a piece Schubert composed based on one of Goethe's poems.
Well, the Russian bard is a real myth and there are good reasons for that.
Greek Byzantine chant
Clip 1: This is heaven, Easter music
I have to go one day to New Orleans... Clip 1: Funny clip
From one of the countries I like the most, Felix Leclerc: Clip 1
Clip 2 It is easy to imagine the morena de Angola described in this song.
Alirio Díaz from Venezuela
Melódicos from Venezuela
Yordano from Venezuela
Clip 1 Madera Fina
To be continued...
