I don't know have someone already suggested this earlier and since the topic has so many pages, it's almost impossible to check it. But anyway, this idea isn't even the most orginal one, i've seen it in many forums already.
I've noticed that some posts in this topic include a little more than just the song title and the artist/band who performs it. Why wouldn't we all include to the message our own opinions about the songs we're listening at the moment? It shouldn't be too hard because opinions can be expressed even in few words. So what do you all think? mods? forumers?
now listening to:
Mikis Theodorakis - Katastash Poliorkias
I "accidently" found this greek composer and his creative work while searching songs of other singers. So this is completely a new found for me. I don't know yet what to think about it, to be honest..thiskind of music is so hard to describe! Very emotional, very beautiful. Since i don't know any greek, my mind is naturally focused on the music and the singing of the vocalist Maria Farantouri instead of lyrics - but sometimes it's even better not knowing them because then you can use your imagination.
and for a start...
Värttinä - Synti (the sin)
Värttinä is a Finnish band who makes great music that leans heavily on traditional folk (ethnic) music. Nowadays Värttinä consists of three great ladies accompanied by a truly good band. Their musical qualities are beyond question imo. I like this band very much for about three years now ( as long as i know them) and recently went to a very impressive life gig. Not just the singing and the music are great, but also the interaction with the audience, the stories they tell about the songs, the expression on stage, well totally unforgettable for me. Last summer i bought also their video, and on that you can see the lead singers (well not exactly the same, since Sari kaasinen left the band at a certain stage) at a very young age performing on a village square).
Värttinä is very strongly recommended (by me ) for everyone who loves real good music that leans heavily on original themes and melodies.
If you can ever go to a live performance, do it! You will never regret it!
