    AIB - Bluegrass Music - Cultural Music

    This made me think of the other "non-tradional" music's I like. For me it is klezmer. If anyone is looking for good music that is fun check out

    www.kamea.com

    www.klezmatics.com

    www.klezperanto.com

    All have downloadable songs and are interesting people.

    So any other suggestions for real "alternative" music?

    Louisiana has a diverse mixture of cultural music:
    • Dixie Jazz
    • Brass Bands
    • Traditional and Modern Jazz
    • UNIQUE Rap Music - Home of the "Bounce" sound and the CASH MONEY MILLIONAIRES!!!! BLING BLING

    Sure. I might recommend some recordings of some Tibetan Bhuddist monks chanting (COOL BASS), but I find this jump is usually too much of a stretch for most western ears (patience Grasshopper, you must study long before hearing the reverberating ocatave tones...). Most traditional African music is pretty accessable to western ears. My personal fave, though is the world famous Kumran (sp?) singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - "Mustt mustt massive attack remix" ROCKS! (I think he was from Pakistan maybe someone can Google it). I also give high marks to Peter Gabriel's Real World Music label and just about any of their recordings.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
