Interesting. Zlatorog (goldhorn), lived in a fancy garden on the mountain. He was custodian of a hidden treasure. One day a greedy hunter came to steal the treasure, stalked Zlatorog and shot him cowardly. At the scene a lovely flower grew out of the soil and gave Zlatorog back his life. In vicious rage Zlatorog killed the hunter instantly. Afterwards he destroyed the secret garden and was never seen again.Originally Posted by KettleWhistle

The funniest band here, unfortunately I don't have anything funnier http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio3/world/aw...m/terravid.ram
Jimmy Cliff, Yellow Man, Gladiators
It's a very nice and good "mood" music , it can relax you ,in the traffic jam of L.A. it's a very good example of what can be done with electronics means and devices, one of these days ,a real musician will be unable to reach the electronics samples machines. this is progress.We have to accept it.Originally Posted by KettleWhistle
Mediocrates quoted Less Paul ,who "create" the rerecording technic ,which make a success in that period,he did that with a female singer ,I can't remember it's name Mary something.
And an other "phenomenon" a bit pushed by electronic was Imma Summac..a woman with a super extended voice ,something a bit supernatural. that be part of the past.
Well, I'd say Dave Navarro's guitar skills make him a pretty real musicianOriginally Posted by goliath
And as a side note, the first one on the Album's "thanks" list is The Elohim.
I didn't said ,I didn't liked that sound ,"paradise style" , it's an 100% electronic one, this guy could be a good instrumentalist player, Less Paul ,was also a good guitarist ,but a better businessman,that was not your period .Originally Posted by KettleWhistle
I don't now who is , Dave Navarro ,I do now Angel Navarro a fabulous Cuban concertist , but I do remember one who did a great success in USA and all the world : Santana ,which is not a bad guitarist ,but I can't listen it ,unbearable to me ,a complete artificial sound ,and that make it's success near his public ,which I'm not part of.
Santana was looking for money ,not for good music .
At present if you want to register an create an orchestra in your living room ,you buy a good device call "electronic sampler" and you can create everything with a minimum of knowledge in harmony and music.
Life is too short to appreciate everythings ,and it's perfect like that.
If you're in US for about ten years (fall of Berlin wall was in 1989) so ,I've spent much more than that in your country ,but not in a row.
I went and search on the net ,who is Dave Navarro ,and I understand the "why" , I'm not at all in heavy metal ,or psychedelic,stuff ,I think ok ,It's good for young people and also the oldest if they like that ,it's not my case, I play real Jazz (60's till70's) and Cuban music .
I'm too old for the other type of music, Rock'n'roll was never appreciate by my ears...too ordinary.but it's only my opinion .
Music it's an entire world ,and everybody can find his favourites.
yeah whatever, what's wrong with negro? it's the literal translation of "black"...Originally Posted by KettleWhistle
Anyway, of course black music had much influence on american music, Elvis was the first white to play black music (in the western world), which made him famous all over the world.
I've heard there is also quite some German influence in country-music, while Cajun music has black and French origins.Originally Posted by goliath
Deos anyone know if there was some jewish/eastern European influence on American music, or was it very limited? Jewish and Eastern European musicians had quite an influence on French music devellopment.
Cheb Khaled and rai music completely arab (actually maghreb)? Not all his songs, there's some European influence as well I think, certainly not classical Arab music, and popular among "white" French as well.Originally Posted by goliath
You are right about classical music, altough traditional folk music is all about improvisation, also in Europe.
The funny thing is that old Cuban songs such as "los Vanvan" and played in "Buena vista social club" are not popular in Cuba except among old people and tourists. Salsa is of course still popular("soy un guajiro natural", Isaac Delgado, etc.) especially for dansing, but what's the hype now in Cuba is merengue of Dominican, reggae music of Jamaican (but there's also cuban reggae music a mix of reggae and salsa) and rap music of Puertorican origin (there are special trembla-competitions for girls with the fastest a$$-shaking, the words used in those songs are mostly very rude...), while also stars such as mexican marco antonio Solis, Ana Gabriel, Maricela, Peruvian Agua marina or Spanish and Italian popmusic (Alejandro Sanz, Laura Pausini, etc.) are extremely popular. There's also orishas, a French-Cuban group singing Cuban style rap and very popular in Europe and Cuba.Originally Posted by goliath
I would like to know what's "hot" nowadays among miami-Cubans.
Well, Dave Navarro is probably the best guitarist out there. Most likely in about 10 years people will think of him as they do of Carlos Santana now. I don't realy consider the work he has done with Jane's Addiction (that the name of a band) either heavy metal of psychedelic. It is more of an abstract art put into music. They mix various styles as well, and some of it has quite a bit of bass and drum that makes it sound like heavy metal. Interestingly enough they have some songs with jazzy elements too: http://mfile.akamai.com/3171/wm2/muz...asx?obj=v40526. But, of course, you're right--to each his own.Originally Posted by goliath
.QUOTE=takeo]I've heard there is also quite some German influence in country-music, while Cajun music has black and French origins
Probably ,that's story of "country is not simple" but mainly : scottish ,Irish,and mexican , if you notice the instruments , banjo,guitar,violin,and bass with only one cord on a barrel,etc etc ,etc
Cajun music it's French (normandy and Britanny) but it's very weak in harmony.
Obviously even country got serious evolution ,and influence with the time as everything ,after that if you want to define every music with an "etiquette" it's a boring study, music start from the heart,and life it's too short to ear and now everythings,so..
They do so a lot ,but not in "Country style", in pop music , Jewish eastern has a very large influence in all pop music, check the composers , the greatest are all Jews.Deos anyone know if there was some jewish/eastern European influence on American music, or was it very limited? Jewish and Eastern European musicians had quite an influence on French music devellopment.
