Gypsy music and the spirit of Papusza

Hi:)

Today I watched Polish film ,,Papusza” about the first  Gypsy Poet- Bronisława Wajs ( 1910-1987) called Papusza ( in Romani it means Doll),  who wrote all her poetry in Romani language. Her poetry was translated into Polish language and published in many cultural magazines, than into many European languages. This  film and beautiful Romani language inspired me to find some Polish Gypsy music, instead of that I discovered an awesome, wonderfull Hungarian Gypsy band – Rományi Rota.

I love this pure sound and very melodic way of singing. I feel this vibe in  each part of my body …. I just want to dance, I can’t stand without making a  dance moves to this music. I am filled with so positive energy and I am happy 🙂  The greatest discovery of a year, I think.

I started to read the Poetry of Papusha and it’s so pure and clean. There’s no difficult meaning, no hard words, just poetic simplicity. Truly, I recommend that to you.

There is a prototype of Concita Wurst In Bulgaria….

Hello…. I feel like I haven’t written posts for ages:) I decided to remind you about me and my love, which is Balkan MUSIC, so make a cofee, sit down in you chair and relax after a  full day of work,  reading my post:) Yesterday, I published a post on my second blog: www. balkantrainmusic.blogspot.com.  This post was about Azis  – a male gay singer with a beard. One of my friends who read that, said that my style of writting is very interesting but he won’t support LGBT movement.  Ok, I don’t want to support any movement even LGBT , POLITICS and stuffs like that. It’s just my point of view and I just want to share it with you.

After Eurovision and European panic caused by the winner, my emotions  has fallen down. I realized that  Azis  is also a phenomenon and he’s undoubtedly one of the most famous Bulgarian Musician.  So  check his music:

The next post will be about Bulgarian national instruments like for example Kaba Gaida and Djura Gaida.

Now, I would like to introduce to you  Serbian musician- Milan Stankovic- a real superstar in Serbia.

One of the latest Milan Stankovic’s songs is:

I love this song. It’s less folk song than the rest published on this blogbut I had to show you what torments me 🙂

Neo- Medieval music. Is it too old for a modern world?

Hi 🙂

I am listening to Medieval music the whole day and I am wondering: What kind of people do listen to this music? Strange? Old  fashion? Boring?hmmm…. I think it’s very interesting case to discuss.

I remember the situation when I was running a music lesson in High School ( teaching practice). When I came in the Classroom and see all this 13 years old kids dressed very fashionable: Air Max, Creepers, Full Caps and stuffs like that….ohhh and the most important attributes of modern teenager: SMARTPHONE, I PHONE etc., the thougths in my head was like: Oh my sweet God..they surely listen to Justin Bieber, 30 Second To Mars and Asking Aleksandria, no doubt!

The Teacher asked me: What kind of music do you like? I said: So, Balkan music especially Traditional Serbian music, Balkan brass, Turbo Folk, Manele and  Pagan Folk, Medieval music, Polish Traditional music etc. She said: Seriously? That’s great!! Tell them something about this.

What? Tell the teenagers about medieval music in the times of Nicki Minaj and YT? I don’t think so!  They will laught at me. !!!!!

So I start with the words: Do you know  Goran Bregovic and Kayah ( Polish singer ) duo ? They made a CD Together…. and they said: Oh yes ,,Prawy do Lewego”  great song! ….And the rest of lesson ran perfect. They were interested in what I was talking about  and asked a questions. Really! So even 13 years old kids can understand the real side of music.

This positive attitude to that kind of music is rare, because people who listen to this sounds are perceived as old fashion mad people who aren’t modern. What’s more important, most people think that each Medieval  lyrics are about religious and God. No they aren’t, the Troubadours sang about everything! Don’t let the stereotypes lead our life, becouse we have much to loose!

Good night everybody, stay tuned and chilled:)

Some music for today:

( Kaba Gaida – Bulgarian bag pipe…the sound of heaven!)
