King of the Fairies

This is not my favorite version of "King of the Fairies", but it is still lovely. I will try to find the one that most corresponds to me and add it then as well...

Traditional Irish
King of the Fairies


Irish solo stepdances fall into two broad categories based on the shoes worn: hard shoe and soft shoe dances. "Reel", "slip jig", "hornpipe", and "jig" (soft shoe and hard shoe) are all types of Irish stepdances and are also types of Irish traditional music.

I've always liked this music, even when I was little, though I didn't know what exactly it was. After some time I found out that it comes from Louisiana, but there are many different styles of music in Louisiana.
I'm still not exactly sure which it is.. a little bit of Cajun music, a bit of swamp blues,... And I love the fiddle.
Here are a few songs...

Mongolian Overtone Singing -- I love this song and I have no idea what it is about! The sounds he makes with only his voice and a primitive 2-string instrument are just incredible. Really moving.

Traditional music from Cameroon


Drum music from one of the oldest tribes in the Philippines, the Tagbanua. Archeologists believe these are some of the original inhabitants of the islands with their lineage tracing back to Tabon Man, a 20,000 year old skeleton found in the region.

Tim,
It is all interesting, but the "Mongolian overtone singing" is incredible. Wow!
His vocal range.. and only two strings, and then that finale. Truly amazing all together!
Thank you!!

See what you think of this...
It is from the movie Bab'aziz (which was pure magic and I highly recommend it).

Hauntingly beautiful...

Tim,

The Mongolian overtone singer's name is Enkh Jargal. Here is another piece, from the Klangwelten music festival, additionally featuring Mongolian throat singing, which produces some pretty incredible tones and effects. I found it quite touching.
