Shatter me [sound recording]by Stirling, Lindsey

Shatter Me

Shatter Me

Have you ever wanted to listen to music and don’t know what to pick? Well, let me tell you about Lindsey Stirling’s latest CD, Shatter Me!, It is filled with upbeat music that gears your appreciation of the ability that Stirling has with the violin. I invite you take a journey with Stirling as she takes you through beats and melodies that intertwine to create her one of a kind dubstep songs. Join the rollercoaster of sound that takes you from smooth classical sounding pieces to more dramatic high pitched “JAM TO THIS” numbers that just make you want to jump up and rock it! I leave you in good hands with Lindsey Stirling in hopes that you too become a fanatic of her rhythms and style.

PS – By far my favorite is track 6 “Roundtable Rival”

Hecho a Mano: suin a la colombiana(Audio CD) Monsieur Periné

Hecho_a_ManoReady to explore the music scene in other countries? Take an audio visit to Bogotá, Colombia with the new album by Monsieur Periné: Hecho a Mano.  Inspired by the “gypsy jazz” of the 1930s, these young intrepid musicians have crafted a new sound, mixing latin classics and a jazzy swing to create suin a la colombiana, or “swing, Colombian style.”  A huge part of their charm is in the way they’ve switched up classic jazz instruments for those from a more Latin tradition.  Listen for the clarinet and accordion, but also the Charango, a string instrument from the Andes, among many others. This upbeat, 12-track album is a great addition to a party mix, or just for listening in the car. Be warned: you may find it difficult to keep from dancing…

 

¿Tienes curiosidad por  saber lo que es popular en otros países? Toma un viaje musical a Bogotá, Colombia con el primer disco de Monsieur Periné: Hecho a Mano.  Ellos han creado un estilo nuevo y único, inspirado originalmente por el jazz gitano de los años treinta y como muchos otros géneros.  Aunque sea difícil definir exactamente, han llamado su estilo “suin a la colombiana”.  Gran parte de su sonido encantador viene de haber cambiado los instrumentos clásicos de jazz por instrumentos y ritmos reconocidos de música latina. Nótese el clarinete y el acordeón, pero también el Charango, un instrumento de cuerda de los Andes y varios otros más.  ¡Disfrútalo!
