Multicultural Music Monday
I dub today, Multicultural Music Monday.
Who amongst you loves international music?
I know I can’t get enough of it. In fact, if one were to search my iPod—or more accurately my iTunes library since my iPod is out of commission—they would find that 80% of it is foreign music.
Here are some samples of songs on my playlist. If you have Window Media Player Plug-in you can listen to the songs in your browser.
- Rachid Taha – Ya Rayah
- Cheb Mami – Viens Habibi
- Yamada Yuu – Free
- Celtic Woman – Harry’s Game
- Yim Jae Beom – Stigma
- IU – Araro 1 Araro 2
- Sonu Nigam & Kavita Krishnamoorthy – Satarangi Re
- Ringo Sheena / Ringo Shiina –Ringo no Uta (The song grew on me. :P)
Important tidbit: Always search for a translation of the song in English! The last thing you want to find out is that the song you’ve been singing along to was used for Nazi propaganda or encourages an action or way of thought that is not parallel with your own.
I’m always looking for something new! Have any recommendations?
