To share some sweetness and light, so necessary when your life is not running so smoothly, I wanted to share with you a Video of the Thai singer Jolin Tsai, but the embedding of the video has been disabled, so you’ll have to go to you-tube and search for Jolin Tsai, Love love love.
Popular right now on Dutch radio.
I have, next to my love for Heavy Metal, a strange penchant for far-eastern pop-music. You might want to check out the song Myth too. I like that one even better, but that’s not on the radio. 🙂
There is also the very interesting Azam Ali, I heard this song on my favorite radio program, and could not rest before I had ordered the CD!!!
My favorite radio program ”the Sandwich” has introduced me to many more favorite CD’s This is NO Blues, a band trying to combine American blues with Arab folk music.
The band consists of Ad v Meurs, (guitar vocals) Haytham Safia, (Ud, Arabian flute, vocals) and Anne-Maarten van Heuvelen, (double bass, vocals), Osama Maleegi (percussion), Ankie Keultjes (vocals & FOH mixing), And Eric van de Lest (drums)
My favorite song is ”Farewell Shalabiye” but I can’t find it on YouTube, to hear it go to their ”MySpace” page and hit play! The song on this video is Columbus Stockade
NO blues & Galili Dance Company (Farewell Shalabiye, but without lyrics)
Another beautiful CD I discovered through The Sandwich is ”Memoirs du Future” By René Aubry. Defenitely not offered anywhere on Dutch radio, only by The Sandwich. The radio-program is an eclectic mix of of very old music, and the latest, pop, jazz, world-music; anything! Poems, and a bit of cabaret! I try to plan my Sunday around it, but nowadays I can catch up on anything I missed by listening via the internet later! 😀 This video is from another album: Plaisirs D’Amour.
(I need to get that one too)
