OT??: Music from your countries


cd8

Recommended Posts

Hello. I know there are people on this forum from many different countries. I'm interested in hearing different types of music so I propose that we post videos or whatever of popular music that you think in some way or another represents your country. If it has keyboards, well so much the better. I'm not sure you'll be interested...If I bore you, my apologies.

I'll start...Well, I am from Chile, so, yes, you've guessed, the band I'll mention is chilean: Los Jaivas. They mixed a lot of styles and folk music from many places of South America. In this particular song, you'll hear altiplanic folk (which is folk music played in the north of Chile) mixed with progressive music. This might not sound particulary representative of my country, but los Jaivas was maybe the best selling band in the 80's in my country. The video was shot in Macchu Picchu, Peru, in 1980 I think, but the band is 100% Chilean.

Sooo, here's the link, I hope you like it and find it something new:

wow. I love this topic.

Well although I am not original from Jamaica (from Guyana), I live here and since this is the strongest of the Caribbean music forms..I will mention it....

I guess my two favourite modern artistes that are taken reggae/dancehall in new places are Damian Marley (Junior Gong) and Tanya Stephens .

Two very talented singer/songwriters.

When I lived in Sri Lanka, Baila music used to accompany the cricket matches and anything festive. It takes all kinds of forms but always has a distinctive polyrhythm. Here's a video of some kids from a hillcountry school "watching" a cricket match.

 

 

They appear to be exhorting the batsman to hit the ball out of the field (a sixer). :D

Hey, nice thread!

 

 

This is not "German" folk music in particular but seen in a bit bigger context still consisting of german roots. The style is called "oberkrainer" and was made popular by SLAVKO AVSENIK from Slovenia (he sold 60 million records with his band "Slavko Avsenik and his original Oberkrainers", no joke) and consists of lively melodies on rather simple harmonies. Still, it creates a certain 'groove'. The bands normally consist of an accordeon, acoustic guitar, clarinet, trumpet, bass trombone or tuba and one or two singers.

The video-clip is by a popular austrian Krainer-band called "Global Kryner" who take modern pop music like "Something Stupid" or "Like a Virgin" and convert it into the Krainer Groove. Enjoy!

I live in Italy, and I have played for about 10 years with a rather successful group called Indaco, which tried to mix Mediterranean popular music with rock, especially from the prog side.

 

On my site, there are quite a few mp3s from the four Indaco CDs, with plenty of keyboards and some piano as well. Go to

go to the "music" page, and scroll down to the "Indaco" titles. :)

Hey, this is a cool thread!

 

I'm from the USA, so I'm guessing it's not really that hard to find music from here. ;)

 

Actually, I wish I had video of the churches I grew up in -- the kind of Southern Gospel and/or Country Gospel that I grew up on is actually the ancestor of much of what we now call R&B and blues. Unfortunately, I have no recordings of any of that stuff. :cry:

 

Gospel music has been integrating newer pop forms into it's sound for a few decades now, there's not much of the old-school stuff around anymore.

Very cool!

 

I'm U.S born and bred (whatever the hell that means, I just hear people say it) so I don't have too much exciting to contribute from me. I love foreign pop though! My girlfriend is Romanian and she turned me on to a band called Ozone. You may have heard this song as the Numa Numa song with a fat kid singing along but it was #1 in Romania for a long time. So catchy!

Alright, one more.

 

Like I said, I love pop from other countries, but I am especially fond of J-pop. Japanese music fascinates me. This is a video that I particularly dig, Goto Maki singing "Sexy Guy". It rules, so sayeth Dick.

Maria Rita is Elis Regina's daughter, btw, for those familiar with Brazilian music. I didn't dig Ana Carolina till I saw her live a few years ago. She puts on an amazing show, tons of energy.

 

I'll post more when I get a chance...

Thanks for the links Rod S(teward??). I don't I have even an album of Elis Regina, but my dad likes a lot so I heard her a lot (and liked her a lot) when I was growing up. Maybe it's time to steal an album from my dad :D

it's actually a six not a sixer.

Um, Sixer is Sri Lankan cricket slang. Ya know, like hitting a Homer and hitting a Home Run? ;)
