Hey everyone!

I've had a lot of deadlines with Uni so I haven't seen life on earth for a while!

Anyhuuuu...

I've had a thought...

My previous challenges, everyone has enjoyed - but not everyone was able to take part in. So! What I was thinking this time is of your own choice!

Basically... What I'd like you all to do is look for a country you wouldn't usually take any interest in and study it's music! Find a song or a number of songs and share! Tell us why you like and and what you think could progress from this! Also, it wouldn't hurt to try and take a look at it's history! ;)

Anyone who's up for it post a yes or something on here :D

I've decided on Korea. :)

Peace!

ok heres some info on romanian music@-omania is a European country whose population consists mainly (approx. 90%) of ethnic Romanians, as well as a variety of minorities such as as well as a variety of minorities such as German, Hungarian and Roma (Gypsy) populations. This has resulted in a multicultural environment which ncludes active ethnic music scenes. Romania also has thriving scenes in the fields of pop music, hip hop, heavy metal and rock and roll. During the first decade of the 21st century some Europop groups, such as Morandi, Akcent, and Yarabi, achieved success abroad. Traditional Romanian folk music remains popular, and some folk musicians have come to national (and even international) and heres a cool vid

@Gs Bela Bartok's great!! and it's funny to see the locals talking there songs back. If you play piano the Romanian folk dances are very fun to play my favorites are the 1st and fourth. The "stick game" and..... (runs over to look).... "Mountain Horn Song"


while I don't have the time to type a long thing. One of my favorite styles is western African music. It is really great and I recommend all to check it out much different than the rest of Africa and I find it to be much better. Has a lot more traditional Western Occidental roots (yes north Africa is part of the Occident). My favorite instrument is the Kora. and here is a clip.





few more

The pipa (pronounced "pee-paa") is a four-stringed lute, one of the oldest Chinese musical instruments with over 2000 years of history. The term pipa () consists of two Chinese characters symbolizing two playing techniques (denoted as "Tan" and "Tiao" today) while their pronunciations p'i and p'a are imitations of the sounds produced accordingly.The historical development of the pipa has been a progressive process from its very beginning with few major fusions. The earliest Chinese written texts about the pipa dated back at least to the second century BC.

Another Boy pop band - TeenTop ... This song is called SupaLove... personally I really like this tune :)



I laugh everytime I see this retarded dance... his horrifying hair... disgusting make-up and it looks like he's botoxed his lips! retarded, but the SONG is cool :)

And a massive group of girls... 13 again! Girls Generation



Here's a girl group... called HAM



Here's a Korean Rock band... FTIsland...



Korean Metal band... Vassline!



And some Traditional Korean music! Spring Snow! using a Zither.

@ Neo, that middle eastern metal was amazing! I love it! I think I'm going to learn that! :D

I'll gladly do Japanese :D But I already know A LOT about their culture.

But I'll just post the modern stuff for now. Unless someone requests for the more traditional Koto style... actually what the heck..

This is Bei Bei, I even have her CD signed :D



The Okami soundtrack is the true essence of Japanese culture. (with a typical 4/4 rhythm!) :P I can't actually express just how much this song means to me, it's so damn passionate and powerful. I love it :)



This is from one of my favourite anime films "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time". Brilliant stuff.





Genki Sudo, one of Japanese most famous kick boxers also sings! Actually his music is really inspirational. Mainly his lyrics. They're based on the Buddhist belief and how to live your life peacefully. If you want the translation I'll gladly translate it for you guys :)





I absolutely love this next song.



Ok one more and I'm done ahaha... (maybe)



Ok, Ok!! One more...
