Music from Around the World

Post  Koto Tomoya on Thu Nov 17, 2011 3:06 am

Some people forget that even though America has produced some extremely good musicians and singers, there are still many countries around the world with their own styles of music and different instruments that are just as beautiful and entrancing.
I have a few videos here with people and instruments from around the world, and all I ask is that you keep an open mind and see the beauty in each style of music from around the world!

To start off, here is one of my favorite professional sitarists Jonathan Mayer just after he received a new sitar from one of his youtube fans.

I like how he talks about the sound of the sitar how it has "guts/balls" and i do admit, he's right!

Second is another favorite musician of mine from France. Luc Arbogast has been loosely called a male Castrato for using a high falsetto as he sings to give his voice a ore feminine timbre. It truly sounds amazing, that's why I've posted two videos! ;P

Here is a group that flew all the way to Philadelphia from their tiny village of Tuva located on the border of Mongolia. These men have mastered a singing style known as throat singing where they are often able to vocalize more than one note at the same time.

Here is a video of someone playing the Ney. It is a reed flute that originated in egypt during the time of the pharohs. It is known for it's rather beautiful haunting melody.

Here's some really awesome street musicians!

And finally I know it's unrelated, but here's some Armenian animated comedy from Moolt on youtube!
