So many good songs I really love this thread :heart:


There is a well-known Chilean folk/progressive rock band called "Los Jaivas" they've been around since the early 70s.
In 2012, they played at Lollapalooza festival in Chicago and in Santiago. The international press often refer to them as the "pink floyd" of latin america LOL :rolling: (I don't believe that, but hey, you know the press) :lol2:

Los Jaivas blend all the traditional south american music with progressive rock. And I think they are AWESOME.

I managed to find a few of their most popular songs with english subtitles:

This is called "Sube a nacer conmigo hermano" (Rise to be born with me, brother) released in their album "Alturas de Machu Picchu" (The Heights of Macchu Picchu) in 1981.
Machu Pichu (in Perú) is the nearest most mystical place in the region.
The lyrics originally belong to Pablo Neruda's poems from his book "Canto General" (General Song) released back in 1951.
(you need to turn on the captions for the english subs on this one)

Here is another: "Todos Juntos" (All Together) This is a beautiful, energetic song for peace, unity and understanding among the people from different countries and cultures. :hug:
The clip was taken from their performance at the Festival of Viña del Mar - Chile 2011.
Almost at the end of the song you can see people from various latin american countries, dancing, dressed up in traditional clothes while holding their flags... ^_^
English translation is on the screen.

Finally "La Poderosa Muerte" (The Mighty Death) Also recorded in 1981 at Machu Pichu (Perú). With lyrics taken from "The Heights of Macchu Picchu" by Pablo Neruda.
This song is SERIOUSLY AMAZING! Their absolute best. :omg: (translation on the screen)

I love this thread !!! :heart:

In northern Italy a very popular folk production is made by choirs. I've listened to some celtic choirs and I think they resemble a little.
Here is a mix of traditional songs of the Alpine army

In southern Italy a very appreciated popular dance is "taranta". According to the tradition it's a magic dance to recover from the bite of the tarantula, a kind of poisonous spider. We actually distinguish taranta in Puglia from tarantella in Naples. Personally I prefer ''taranta'' :) A great concert is made every year https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osO4Jne ... -Ij7iESMT8

And a special mention to Sardinian "canto a tenore". It's made with a unique technique called overtone singing, I know it's used by Inuit and Eastern nations such as Mongolia, Tuva and some others. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMddrMMq ... MddrMMqm00

To me, "højskolesangbogen" is as much Denmark, as it gets.
In Denmark, there has been a long standing tradition of "højskolen" which in dictionaries is translated into "folk high school".

Way way back, the idea of "højskole" was based on the filosophy of N.F.S. Grundtvig, who believed that every young man and woman should attend a "folk high school" in order to become a "complete and enlightened human being". Højskoler were in most cases placed in rural areas of Denmark, and the girls and boys from different farms attended. This was also due to the lack of possibilities to go to eg. the university and learn. Grundtvig wanted to offer a possibility for all people; even the ones from poorer areas of the country, to become well-educated. Højskolen was back then often mostly based on values/beliefs like: Christianity, democracy, nationalism and so on. Now you see all sorts of højskoler - also some, that are not have the religious/Grundtvigian-backbone.

There are many more points to make about "højskolen", but in rough summary - the above was the most important.


I went to a sports-højskole a decade ago, and something I always remember is all the singing. Morning assembly-singing, afternoon break-singing, cosy game- and singing evenings :-) And I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. :heart:
So the "Folk high school song book" is of course important.

One of the very popular songs (and one of my favorites) from that book is:

"Livet er en morgengave/Noget om helte" (loosly translated= life is a gift/something about heroes)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noIZ-fypCpw - I actually couldn´t find a decent version with singing. Closest one is this, but I don´t really like the way he sings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfficefNOxU
