Bosnian R&R

Alive and well in this band's hands. Maybe 5 people here can understand the lyrics but it's all about the tunes, right? + enjoyable vids.

OK now we're up to speed and totally international.

Inspiring that countries outside of Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Ireland and The United States are very capable of creating their own rock and roll or pop music identity! I enjoyed the videos...Alina and the live video...were very good ! The shots of a revolution of sorts in the Alina video were intriguing...thought it may be Eva Peron speaking but the clips look too old and Eva was a knockout...unlike the woman speaking in the clip.

Thanks Jazz man! A new thread is born once again!...perhaps Japanese heavy metal...????

That one's not tough to understand, given the Japanese love of and consumption of the A&A Twins (amphetamines and alcohol). A real head-scratcher is the Nipponese adoration of reggae--totally mad for the stuff, to the point that a list of home-grown bands would fill a page. So much talent they don't bother to import Jaimoe talent much anymore for their huge festivals. Here's a good read on the subject: http://www.nippop.com/features/Rastaman_...Reggae%3F/
Wouldn't be MD w/o some music:
Rankin' Taxi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhLPg9EMU8I << Oh yes!
Dry & Heavy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMaUwYk-TXo << kinda weird--Japanese in a Jamaican accent...
* Little Tempo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4k9StDvJz0 << Lover's reggae...and it works so well
Mute Beat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4k9StDvJz0 << As the name implies, they are an instrumental-only band
Nahki http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkPBUOiwdXc << this guy must be a total hoot to see up close and personal--not a bad job on Doo-wop either (not so odd when you consider where earlier Jamaican songs came from)

* special merit with this song--if more bands heard it, more would add to their repertoire--great bones.

Yes , Little Tempo is the standout! It has been said that the Japanese are the most open music fans in the world....they seem to support most genres!

What's been talked about here is odd but understandable; this next one is just flat weird: Finland's love of the Tango. A festival that draws 100,000 from a nation of only 5 Million, and the love dates from 1913: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finnish_tango A quick look, then 3 composers' works--amazing stuff:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaN5JwjN3io << sung in Finnish with Spanish subtitles and, natch, some dance shots
Olavi Virta 15 tracks by this master https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WE5Srkzx...ArBx-1c3hp
Toivo Karki "The Father of Finnish Tango https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1rc7JfRcZc and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL9EgDM6g3w and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63ZoPqp1K7s
Unto Mononen 12 tracks by another master composer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-O2L_Zj...djMVSX-0MY
As the wiki explains, the Finns have adapted the form but didn't subvert it as, for example, this gent has: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astor_Piazzolla His music was the soundtrack for this movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114746/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 A tune or two by him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUAPf_ccobc and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgha2OTkyFE << if you want to go really deep with Sr. Piazzola, YouTube has full albums and a "Top Tracks" thingie that goes 72 pieces.

The finns have also adapted the dancing, making it softer and more graceful, not hard-edged pseudo-violent like the Argentines.
