Agalloch - Isle of Summer

Agalloch are a folk metal band from Portland. This is one of their mellow acoustic, vocal-free songs so don't be afraid to check it even if the word metal scares you.

No folk music thread would be complete without a mention of Swamptrash

They played a mad blend of Scottish folk and bluegrass, I was lucky enough to see them live countless times and they really went for it! Amazing





On the go at the same time were the slightly more tradiotional Critterhill Varmints, I loved them too



Together they started "Acid Croft", folky dance music for first generation ravers (yes I'm that old )
Shooglenifty is the latest incarnation, still bringing folky dance music to village halls and festivals all over the world and still a great night out

Some more info and mp3s here http://www.lazypict.thehighlands.co....ofthistory.htm

1. Savina Yannatou - Ferte Mou Ena Mandolino (Bring me a mandolin)



Music and lyrics by Manos Hadjidakis.



2. Nikos Xilouris - Pote Tha Kanei Ksasteria (Would there be a starry sky)



A traditional revolutionary Cretan song.



3. Mikis Theodorakis - Dakrismena Matia (Weeping eyes)



It is certain that the Greek and Turkish cultural heritages are so intimately entwined in folk music.



4. George Dalaras - Ta Smyrneika tragoudia (Songs of Smyrna/Izmir)



George Dalaras singing at the Odeon of Herode Atticus (Athens) in 2004 during the live 'Tribute to Asia Minor'.

Nicolae Furdui Iancu

I like this song by Iancu. I didn't say Ion Ivanovici/Jovan Ivanovic was a Serb at all. He probably had Serb roots but seems to have identified as a Romanian. One of the most important politicians in Serbia's history, PM Nikola Pasic was in fact a Vlach from Bulgaria. There's plenty of this cross-border stuff we needn't get into.

I actually first heard this song (Waves of the Danube) in a movie by Emir Kusturica called "When Father was Away on Business" and I found the melody beautiful and haunting. I thought it might be a Serbian song (given the movie) but couldn't find its name anywhere.

Then I heard it being played in a hospital in the US and the song was by Al Jolson. I couldn't catch the name, though.

Only years later did I find out that Al Jolson called the song "Anniversary Song" but that it was indeed an Eastern European song, which it sounded like, and that it's name was Waves of the Danube.

I like Dakrismena Matia. Do you have any insight on what Greek/Byzantine music sounded like prior to the Turkish arrival in Anatolia? My impression is that a lot of Balkan music is considered massively Oriental/Turkish in origin, but that it could very well be the other way around - Turks and Arabs adopting music from the Byzantines.

I like this song - Misirlou

My favourite version from traditional folk song Oh Suzanna: by the Byrds. Well of course it's rather "folk rock" but I just love the jingle jangle, on this song it's really perfect.




And emotionnally my favourite version of This Land is your land, at MSG for Pete Seeger's 90th birthday.

Esma and Saban, both legends of Gypsy music, singing together in Mostar Sevdah Reunion



The woman that originally got me into etno music -- Cesaria Evora
The most soulful voice I've ever heard.
Her most famous song, Sodade.



Lole y Manuel.
Not enough icons permitted.



Lidija Bauk.



Saban Bajramovic, absolute legend. Famous gypsy song in a jazz arrangement.



ETA:
Stupidly erased prev. post by mistake. /auto-facepalm

Nick Drake and the flamenco are amazing.
Also mistakenly confused Aloimeh for JG.
That Murray avatar just grows on you, no way are the mullets going to replace that. Thanks for posting the different version of Moj Dilbere, Aloimeh. I love that song.

Gonçalo Salgueiro, Fado.
One of the most beautiful male voices ever.
You'd think there could be nothing new in a genre of music that was practically sealed by Amalia's genious, but he manages to bring out even more than anyone can expect.
I always thought Portuguese sounds a little coarse, but he makes it sound like the most beautiful language in the world.
