Some world music I'd like to share:

Turkish:

CD: Tarkan: Karma

"Definitely westernized, modern, belly-rolling, hip-swiveling, sexy, musical rhythms worth recognition in the U.S! No quick flash in the pan pop-star, Tarkan is not compared to the "King" (Elvis) for nothing. If you like modern pop/rock music try it with a twist of belly-dancing beats, turkish-techno, and a sultry turkish accent."

_____


CD:Chava Alberstein: Yiddish Songs

"...one of the last great Yiddish folk singers.... bringing together songs from Poland, Romania and Russia that tell of ghetto life....Think Cabaret with a real singer spitting out the throaty 'ch's and you're on the right track."

very nice. I find this style of music infectious and uplifting. As I was listening my hips started to move to and fro involuntarily, and I got this craving for hummus, a hookah pipe, and DJ Alice.

thanks, suenos

This one was posted here a while ago : )

I just noticed watching it this time that he has a smile on his face through the whole video. I wonder why?

CD: Kiyoshi Yoshida - Asian Drums II

A few years ago I had the opportunity to watch a Japanese band (forgot their name) perform "The Secret of Bamboo" live in Singapore. It was fantastic. This song was one of my favorites out of the whole show:

I also love, love, love Matsuriza, the Japanese drums show at Walt Disney's Epcot center. I remembered everytime we went to Disneyworld, it was a MUST SEE show for me!

Enjoy!

Lyrics:

Child
Artist: Freddie Aguilar


When you were born into this world
Your mom and dad saw a dream fulfilled
Dream come true
The answer to their prayers

You were to them a special child
Gave 'em joy every time you smiled
Each time you cried
They're at your side to care

Child, you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you live

How many seasons came and went
So many years have now been spent
For time ran fast
And now at last you're strong

Now what has gotten over you
You seem to hate your parents too
Do speak out your mind
Why do you find them wrong

Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you live

And now your path has gone astray
Child you ain't sure what to do or say
You're so alone
No friends are on your side

And child you now break down in tears
Let them drive away your fears
Where must you go
Their arms stay open wide

Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you live

Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you live

Chava Alberstein: one of the most enduring and popular Israel artists in the Middle East. This album marks a return to the music's roots, collecting Alberstein's modern renditions of classic and traditional Yiddish songs from Romania, Poland and Russia.


CD:Chava Alberstein: Yiddish Songs

http://profile.imeem.com/n_3JOd/playlist/XTjy5QoI/

1.Unter Dy'ne Vy'se Shetern (Under the White Stars)
2. Friling (Spring)
3. A Keshenever (The Song of Kishinev)
4. Oifn Veg Sh'tait a Boim (On the Road There's a Tree)
5. Amol Iz Geven a Mai'she (A Tale of Woe About a Jewish King)
6. Hul'iet Hul'iet Kinderlech (Have a Good Time, Little Children)
7. Rabeinu Tam (Rabbi Tam)
8. Dana Dana (Dona Dona)


*Interestingly, growing up I listened to "Dana Dana" (Dona Dona) in many versions - English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Cantonese, and Tagalog. I didn't realize “Dana Dana”, is a Yiddish folk song, and it was written in America!


Enjoy!

Time for some music from New Zealand!

Oceania

Oceania, the first international release of Maori music, brings together celebrated New Zealand poet/singer/lyricist Hinewehi Mohi, Brit post-punkster Jaz Coleman of Killing Joke, and Hirini Melbourne, a composer and professor of Maori studies.

Melbourne's dense compositions come to life in the hands of highly skilled Maori musicians playing traditional instruments alongside an expansive Western string section. Exotic and mutable, the music of Oceania grounds itself in ancient culture while fully engaging in a modern sonic sensibility. The result is decidedly neo-classical, spiritual, and celebratory. Mohi's stunning voice twines itself round wending string lines, sensual beats, and hypnotic flute. An excellent choice for fans of Uakti, Philip Glass, and Sheila Chandra, Oceania is a wash of gloriously complex rhythm and harmony.
