Take a trip around the world for some enchanting music!
From the very start of the Universe with the Big Bang, we perceive Music in every sound we hear. If we fail to perceive it as Music, the fault lies with us. Every sound must reach our soul, not just our ears.
Korean Pansori is sung in a big voice, for those ancient times without amplifiers. It is a ballad, i.e., story telling song. Pansori is sung from mountain tops, standing next to waterfalls, and other natural sounds; a single singer may use the echo of own voice from other mountains to concoct a rhythm as well.....
In the Pansori hall of fame museum (Naju, Korea) there is a sound proof room that people may go in and produce the loudest noise they can.. And see the results in decibels as well as how they compared with the current champion.
Korean National Theater has shows for tourists in Seoul --
Here is an example, with commentary in English.
Here is a Mongolian Throat singing sample. Tibetan monks chant in this style in buddhist temples.
This is another type of sound that "carries" itself to long distances..
Throat singing is a tradition of a number of cultures in the world....
One might hear two tracks of sound from the same throat...
In the South Indian Classical music, deep baritones (like Madurai Somu, or MD.Ramanathan) can produce this kind of throat effect (sympathetic vibrato?) during their solo's.
Here are a couple of Canadian Children doing it.
If you cannot do it with the throat.... there is help in a musical instrument invented by the Australian Aborigines. The Didjeridoo. Here is a guy in the famous Riverfront Plaza in Lisbon. He is singing in Portuguese language.
That plaza is welcoming place for all manner of buskers.
I must say you have a colossal musical range! In fact, I spend most of my time on my PC looking for little known musical traditions. Thank you for taking me through some awesome musical forms.
Here are some more:
ECUADOR ANDES PASTOR SOLITARIO. (22million viewers!)
MARIA JUANA - IDILIO (MORENADA) (13million views) Bolivia – Folklorico
Same Song..... Three RenditionsHere is a western lament* about Horoscopes....
*a western lament is called BLUES
Song is called "Born Under a Bad Sign", with 3 different renditions of the same song.
First one is a run of the lyrics with Al King and Stevie Ray Vaughan doing the original version. Classic blues, with shades of New Orleans zydeco style solo's.
The second one is from the 1970's NewYork, Butterfield Jazz band, and since it is the Disco period, this would sound like it is made for shaking your shoulders and hips...as you listen. Lots of Trumpet, and Harmonia in the mix....
The third one is from Joe Bonamassa -- high money concert, with keyboard, brass section, and three sequined girls singing chorus, and the background "oooh's and aaahh's"
Here is a lesson on how to learn to play "Born Under a Bad Sign" with an electric guitar.
Oh... and here is Eric Clapton (rather well known guitarist) doing the song with a brass-section threesome putting down the rhythm for his solo:
Here is "Born Under a Bad Sign" played on a pair of Gayegeums, a Korean instrument.
Split screen, with players switching from rhythm to solo and back.
