I like this! Tulia band…

I hosted a Serbian girl home today, as she’s a folk dancer and musician, she made me discover some Serbian music.

So I digged a little bit into youtube for eastern european folk music and fell on this, which I like: Polish band Tulia.

 

Have a look, or an ear…

On listening…

 

I remember in 2008 whe I started to learn Carnatic music under Dr P.V. Bosein Pondicherry, he gave me some recordings to listen to.
Among the artists was a lot of Maharajapuram Santhanam concerts.

I remember at that time how I couldn’t appreciate the quality of it, in part because my ears were very new to Carnatic music, and the quality of the sound was very low.

 

Now after more than ten years, I can appreciate it so much, it is honey to my ears…

 

I now take time to learn and see beyond the surface before deciding to appreciate a new thing or not…

Traditional European music

I discovered european traditional music quite late in my musical path.

I had to go to Africa and India to quench my thirst of sounds that were not shallow products of a globalised and rather tasteless mainstream culture.
Little did I know that there was a collective of people all around Europe playing our traditional music and dancing on it…

Here for you one of the musician I like, Arnaud Bibonne, playing the Boha (a traditional bagpipe from Gascogne in France)…
