I could listen to such music almost constantly. When I hear the sound of the Chinese bamboo flute I lose the sense of time, i.e. I see the past, the present and the future practically simultaneously, it's something like a touch of eternity... I don't know how to describe it properly, but it's somehow mystical feeling, the close contact with art creates an impression that your life changes from being "parallel" to the time axis and becomes in a way "perpendicular" to it: you don't live along the time, you live across the ages... The same is when you look at the late November sky, unusually clear and blue, with the discretely smiling Sun that tries to hug you with all those thousand subtle light tentacles our star pulls out. You almost see the shapes of buildings that might exist here in the past, hear the sounds of bygone events. If you really try hard you can also see with the corner of your eye shadows of the mammoth hunters from the Ice Age passing by a gentleman in the typical 19-th century three-piece suit not seeing each other. Yeah, real art can evoke such unusual impressions... Wink

Wonderful expressions for this beautiful song.

This is not just a good folk song but also an extremely-soothing background theme. Very nice recommendation. Wink

I like many of the fragments of this compilation. Some of them are completely new to me, other are rather familiar but I didn't know their name. Wink Generally, this is a very good music recommendation for this thread. Smile

Both tracks are interesting from the music point of view, if I had to pick the better one, I would be in trouble, for sure. The first song is very rhythmical and saturated with sounds of the motors of the fishing boats, communicates of the coastguard (as I suppose) and so on. The second one refers rather to the ancient rituals in the honor of the god of wind (am I right?) "dressed" with the modern arrangement. So, both music pieces are equally unique and intriguing to me.

I have to admit that there are some moments when I may not understand other's behavior. Maybe it's not a big deal but anyway I'm a bit surprised that songs by the Polish band "Księżyc" (http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?p=150347#150347) may be so disgusting (?), controversial (?) or maybe offensive (?) to YONG that he didn't want to leave even a short comment here. I'm not responsible for every lyrics that have been ever written, and if anyone feels offended I'm truly sorry for that.

The text of the song "Verlaine I" by the group Księżyc is based on the poem "Verlaine" by the great Polish 20th century poet, Stanisław Grochowiak and I can't find there anything that may offend people here assuming that surrealistic depiction of the presented characters doesn't refer to concrete people.

Here you have a wonderful song from the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), the lyrics of the song and the translations of it (the Russian translation seems to be much better than the English one) you can find below the video:Smile

MHajduk, please chill!

First, I must point out that it was not just me who did not comment on the recommendations in question. Other forum members -- sleepsleep, typedef, and Picnic -- also did not do so. They should be bombarded as well, I guess.

Second, I am, very often, in a hurry when I browse through the new posts of this thread, as I now usually access the Internet through the free WiFi connections provided by the public libraries, which, unfortunately, impose bandwidth and time restrictions on the users. In other words, I may not be able to comment on all recommendations; sometimes, I may even miss some of them.

Third, I seldom look up the meanings of the lyrics written in languages that I do not understand. The melody line and the general mood of the song are, in general, far more important.

All in all, I try to be responsive to the new messages in this thread, but I may skip some, unintentionally or deliberately. Wink

Sorry, I totally missed your recommendations. Embarassed

Both are atypical music pieces. I would say I prefer the first one, as it reminds me of the following song that I presented here earlier:

Abraham's Daughter (Cover)

This one is a serous contender of the best song of the month, bro. A catchy melody line plus a passionate grassroots vocal equals perfection. Top-notch recommendation. Wink

Yes, your recommendation is very similar to "Verlaine I" by Księżyc, at least in general character. Both music pieces may be described as sublime lamentations over something (feelings in the case of the Polish song) or somebody as we can hear here. Smile

The catchy rhythm of the song and the hoarse vocal full of pain make this song something definitely unforgettable. Somehow it reminds me this music piece:Wink

This is an improbably beautiful melody, YONG, that evokes strong feeling of nostalgia along with reflexive mood. Smile

Wow, I have never seen such a musical instrument before! Its notes sound crystal clear to me. The only downside of the MV is that I am unable to see the (probably) pretty face of the female player -- what a pity! Wink
