Here we can post traditional music from the edges where we come from. Also become more familiar with your culture.

I'll start with my favourite song :)

This is half joking and half serious! This was filmed in georgia, near where I went to college in the NC mountains. Places like this exist-in the mountians/foothills. If you haven't seen the movie Deliverance it is weird, but being R+ fans , simulated sodomy isnt such a big deal. You should watch the movie. Squeeeel like a piggy. Enjoy the dueling banjos!

@ Ole Sk: That was a beautiful melody - it was a pleasure to listen to :D

@ Ahoi: I'm not quite sure what to say about posting a piece from "Deliverance", except that some of your fellow Americans might be offended? Maybe consider substituting a different link?


An historical song celebrating Canada. According to military historian Donald Graves,
this song dates to 1812: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tl9HD01V704

From historical Cape Breton: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgWcNwzu ... re=related

An example of Cape Breton fiddle music - I really enjoyed this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYCX5QD9SGk

A traditional Greenlandic drum song:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWAHf5HOL7M


Wonderful Greenlandic singer Julie Berthelsen with the beautiful song "Asasara" (My Love):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwN4P2SACU0

The song was written to Crown Prince Frederik and his fiancee Mary Donaldson when they got married.

Lyrics:

Asasara

Aana uanga asasara
Saninniippoq pissara
Ingiaqatissara inuunitta
Naanissaa tungaanut

Giviannga asasara
Tusaannga maanna
Oqartunga
Piginnga maannamiit qaqugumut
Ingerlasa marluulluta

In english:

My Love
(J. Berthelsen, P. Berthelsen)

Here is my love
Next to me he/she sits
Him/her I will follow
For the rest of our lives.

Look at me my love
Now hear me say
Let me be yours from now on and forever
Let us follow each other, you and I.

I've chosen a traditional danish song, the Midsummer Song, since it's soon midsummer again.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50LgG8cW6Qc

In Denmark, the solstitial celebration is called Sankt Hans aften ("St. John's Eve").
It was an official holiday until 1770, and in accordance with the Danish tradition of celebrating a holiday on the evening before the actual day, it takes place on the evening of 23 June.
It is the day where the medieval wise men and women (the doctors of that time) would gather special herbs that they needed for the rest of the year to cure people.

It has been celebrated since the times of the Vikings by visiting healing water wells and making a large bonfire to ward away evil spirits.
Today the water well tradition is gone.
Bonfires on the beach, speeches, picnics and songs are traditional, although bonfires are built in many other places where beaches may not be close by (i.e. on the shores of lakes and other waterways, parks, etc.)

In the 1920s a tradition of putting a witch made of straw and cloth (probably made by the elder women of the family on the bonfire emerged as a remembrance of the church's witch burnings from 1540 to 1693.
This burning sends the "witch" away to Bloksbjerg, the Brocken mountain in the Harz region of Germany where the great witch gathering was thought to be held on this day.
Some Danes regard the relatively new symbolic witch burning as inappropriate.

In 1885 Holger Drachmann wrote a midsommervise (Midsummer hymn) called "Vi elsker vort land..." ("We Love Our Country") that is sung with a melody composed by P.E. Lange-Müller at every bonfire on this evening.

An approximate translation, by unknown:

We love our country
when the blessed Christmas
light up the star in the tree with a twinkle in each eye
When in spring each bird
over the field, down by the beach
lets its voice give into greeting trills:
We sing your law across the road, across the street,
we wreath your name, when our harvest is in the barn,
but the most beautiful wreath
becomes yours, Saint Hans
It is bound by the the hearts of the summer so warm, so happy
but the most beautiful wreath
becomes yours, Saint Hans
It is bound by the hearts of the summer so warm, so happy

We love our country
but mostly around midsummer
when every cloud sends the blessing across the field
When most flowers are here
and when the cattle drag the plough
gives plenty of gifts to laborious hands;
when we don't plough and harrow and roll,
when the cow munch its dinner of clover:
At that time youth will start to dance
at your command Saint Hans!
Straight as the foal and the lamb which freely romp across the meadow
At that time youth will start to dance
at your command Saint Hans!
Straight as the foal and the lamb which freely romp across the meadow

We love our country
and with the sword in our hands
every foreign enemy shall prepared know us
But against the spirit of strife
over the field, down by the beach
we will light the bonfire on the forefathers' burial mounds:
Every town has its witch, and every parish its trolls,
we will keep those from our lives with fires of happiness
We want peace in this country,
saint Hans, saint Hans!
It can be won where the hearts never become doubting cold
We want peace in this country,
saint Hans, saint Hans!
It can be won where the hearts never become doubting cold

We love our country
and we greet that king
who has tried and chosen the right princess:
In his fairy tale castle
every woman, every man can
find an exempel of love for life!
Let the times grow old, let the colors fade,
we will however draw a memory in our hearts:
From the North so rich in legends
a glory goes across the world
It is the reflection of the wonderland's enchanted meadows,
From the North so rich in legends
a glory goes across the world
It is the reflection of the wonderland's enchanted meadows!

LOL Beekay, People play deuling banjos ALL the time where Im from. Im guess Im not representing America, just my part of it. Seriously life is like that. Deliverance is a good movie! The most American music that comes to mind is Bruce Springsteen, but that is not what i grew up on. We picked banjos around campfires, went shooting, drank moonshine, ate pintos and cornbread. We even talk different, way different. Just a different part of America.

Well, this isn't from a country, per se, but this music is listened to by a lot of us here where I live. Tejano music. I'm mixed caucasian/hispanic (of Mexican descent) and I grew up listening to Mariachi and Tejano music, and I still do. :D

It's a live performance video (RIP to her):

Hooray for Irish traditional music! So many forms and such diversity. :D


One of my favourite bands, The Dubliners. *cue massive Dubliners spam*


Way before Thin Lizzy and Metallica did their version, this was the traditional one. 'Whiskey In The Jar':

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eOIU9ekSMk



I remember learning this song when I was about five. Very Dublin-ish. 'Molly Malone'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9Deeh9n ... re=related

This is the greatest piper that Ireland ever had. His name was Sheámus Ennis, and he played the uillean pipes(Irish Pipes). I'll post two clips of his playing, one fast tune, one slow. First tune is called 'The Bucks of Oranmore':

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrXsmfmqcFA


'An Raibh Tú Ar An gCarrig?':

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJX4uRwg ... re=related

Of course, there's always the Rebel songs, all about how the English were all bastards and how they should GTFO of Ireland.:lol: The Wolfe Tones are probably the most well known of the Rebel bands, so here's a few of their tunes. Some may argue my including them here, but they're a part of our musical history.

My mother used to say the chorus of this to me when I was a child. She came from a fairly Republican family, so she learned this from her uncles and her father. :)

'Some Say The Devil Is Dead'(.....and buried in Killarney, some say he rose again, and joined the British Army)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6A-ucLv44Y

'We're On The One Road':

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XwWyew- ... re=related

Wow! Thanks to everyone for posting these! It's amazing to hear and watch the links here.

I'm from Costa Rica and our motto, whether greeting each other or when asked how we are doing is to say, "Pura vida!!" which in this case it's used to mean, "full of life!" and I guess it reflects in our folkloric music and dance. Here are some links I found about our music.... so, "Pura vida everyone and hope y'all enjoy!".

this man reminds me of my grandfather, who was also a marimba player. This song is called "El Punto Guanacasteco" (Guanacaste Point) and it's a very popular folkloric song.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msvfubW6 ... re=related

here is a cute one of some children dancing the dance that goes to the song the gentlemen were playing in the link above.... "El Punto Guanacasteco"

^^^OMG Ninetails!!!! My Dad LOVED the Dubliners!!!! I grew up listening to them. He was a big folk buff & loved them, The Corries, Matt McGinn, Eric Bogle & many others. He played in the local folk club so knew a few of them too. :)

The Corries - Flower of Scotland (Our unofficial National Anthem)

Known as "Skyskraper Wean" (Child that lives in a high-rise flats)

Edit: Forgot Runrig :shock: How could I? !!!!!! This is traditionally played at the VERY end of every wedding, birthday/anniversary party. The dance is similar to the Hokey-Kokey, but without the legs in & out. (By that time it's mostly drunk men in kilts & women holding hands & running in & out in a circle, sometimes falling over each other - lol)

^ Now I have the red yo-yo song in my head - but that's ok - as it's such a darling song! :)

Bagpipes are an integral part of our tradition that continues today - in our military regiments, various police force bands; and Simon Fraser University (yay! ^_^ ) Pipe Band. Beautiful music.

Oh this is so much fun to get to know each other cultures like this! :D
I had a bit difficult time to pick something but I found three songs for you all :)

So this is from Iceland.

First an 800 year old psalm called Heyr Himnasmiður or Listen, smith of the heavens.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnKIgccY09Q

Second is by a folk icon here who's name is Bubbi Morthens. This song is about a man that lives in a little village and dreams about getting away. Eventually he cant as he has children to take care of and his knowledge that one day his children will leave to make a better future for themselves.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6bSrA4jQ8M

Thirdly is a poem by my great-great grandmother who's name was Rosa. She was a very interesting poet as not many women were openly poets at that time in Iceland. Its a love poem to a man she couldnt have. Lyric is translated on the video.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQ2hSK-zFl8

Very interesting pieces of music. I can strip some which I like.Each has its own magic.

This is one of the most famous Macedonian dances http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53rP5gH1YVM (this group of folk dance is very famous. They perform all over the world)


This is a performance marking 20 years of independent Macedonia http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlAi3AZZl6o .Here are pictures from the event with the same music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bJFHoOT ... re=related (I must mention that it is processing the original song, but I think it sounds great)


In this approach the three girls are members of the group Synthesis (that song that I sent first). Made this song with a singer - Tose. He is the best singer that Macedonia had.Beautiful voice. Unfortunately died in a car accident in 2007. He was 26 years old...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wigpz8WGkLc (In that sense, here's another song with well-known Gianna Nannini http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHbT9VvtonM)
