Folklore Music

Recommended Posts

Neat!  This one isn't traditional music like your example, but it still falls under the wider "folk" heading.  I think Patty Griffin is one of the best storytellers in music of my generation:

yeah, women's voices are so beautiful, i actually downloaded some songs just for the sake of their singing, like

Tori Amos - Winter

lotte kestner - alone

lotte kestner - different stars

 

.but to make this a little more on topic let me link something more traditional. maybe this is not a good enough link for this topic, but here we go, it has the traditional folklore feel:

cand aud cucu cantand

let the men have it a go with singing. this guy's performance i adore:

adrian naidin: pan' la rai e cale lunga (it's also good for scarring the cats when they want to steal your food).

I like Patty Griffin. So much depth and emotion in her songs.

 

There is so much great folk music, but I'll put a bluegrass favorite "Say Darlin' Say" performed by Tatiana Hargreaves.

this is a modern take on an old "lost land" song. lost against russia. there's that old saying: "Q:which are the neighboring countries of russia? A:whichever russia desires." there are some random occasions which give some insight into a war, like a person from Georgia i heard randomly saying "they all left that city empty because of the war. now it's part of russia, and those buildings are free for russians to live in." as the news from all the countries and even historical mentions "have an agenda", this folklore sayings and songs give an alternate insight. enough politics, here's the track:  "canta cucu-n bucovina"
