Abr 3 2009, 20h01 por LlorenzaRavi Shankar – The Sounds of India
Someone give this man a guitar! Quick! The way Ravi Shankar plays the sitar is un-be-lie-va-ble. I imagine his fingers moving unearthly fast. And he can probably do the dishes too while he’s playing.
Ravi Shankar is not only extremely talented, he is also a very nice person: he takes the trouble to teach us a bit about the structure of Indian music. The first track is a spoken introduction to the structure of Indian classical music, where he advises not to look for harmonies (that’s something for Western music) and where he reminds us of the fact that Indian music is NOT jazz music. Thank you, Ravi! The beginning of each track also starts with a short explanation. Very educational all together.
Unfortunately, I am a complete loser at understanding accents, so I can’t make out half of what he’s saying (it took me a while to understand that with ‘seh-teh’ Ravi meant the sitar), and I never really cared about the structure of music anyway…

Unless another major band pull a Radiohead-style upset and release an album via their website in the next two weeks, I can say I've decided on my 10 favourite records of the year.
1. M.I.A. - Kala
When I originally drafted this list, Kanye West’s record was at #1 and this took #2. But after a few more weeks, I decided to switch them. While Graduation sounds really awesome, it begins to strain under repeat listens, unlike The College Dropout and Late Registration. It’s lyrically weak and doesn’t reach as much as a Kanye record ought to, musically speaking. And it doesn’t sound unprecedented. Nothing in my Top 10, save this, does. Kala has been called Post for the new millennium, but that’s a bit off the mark. But no one with sense can deny that Kala is indeed, like Bjork’s album, a quantum leap forward for pop. In the splendid album opener Bamboo Banga, Maya Arulpragasam declares that she is coming back with power. And she does. …
Set 14 2006, 1h51 por RottenBerryI have been on a pretty manic buying spree lately...probably because it was my birthday and then I got the first paycheck from my new job, etc. Or maybe it's because I have a shopping "problem." School has been keeping me pretty busy and I have not really been online a lot. I think this is pretty disappointing, but shit happens. I cannot wait to get out of the community college system. I'm tired of basics.
Anyway...this is the stuff I have purchased over the past few days.
The Sounds of India
Live It Out
Impeach My Bush
For The Masses
Adventures in Afropea, Vol. 1
I figure all this stuff should help keep my ears and brain busy for a while. If anyone has some good suggestions about "world" music, let me know--I have a World Music course this semester and I am trying to find examples that are a bit more interesting than the ones on our 2-disc set that came with the book. …
