The Many Faces of Percussion: from world beat to rock music

There are almost as many different kinds of music as there are people in the world.  From World beat music to Ambient, music is as much individual as it is universal, thus creating a new world of textures.  Each one of us can create music based on our ability, be it with a music instrument or through the instrument that all humans possess:  their voice. Many 300-percussion3times we are taken away by the music we hear (in a good way!), and we actually do not realize the importance of percussion and the role it plays on our emotions. A song may start out sounding somewhat ethereal, starting off softly with flutes and other light woodwind-type instruments.  Then, adding keyboard sounds for an effect of serenity and tranquility, peacefulness, as if lying next to a stream of calm waters.  We then start hearing the steady beat of a shaker, with possibly congas or bongos laying down a soft, steady beat, the mood changes from one of stillness to one of movement.  Instead of lying next to the stream, you now want to walk alongside.  Percussion moves us.  It is a driving force to action in new world music and other music genre as well.

A selection of new age music female artists and vocalists I’ve enjoyed over time. This is the 3rd New Age Music iMix and I chose Itunes because I’m a Mac girl! I use this New Age Music mix to read, work, take a walk or to accompany an intimate dinner. You’ll find artists such as Sheila Chandra, Seay, Delerium, Clannad, Enya to name a few. They all have exquisite voices and their music is rich in diverse cultural influences. Music makes us travel! I like the power of voices and like Bjork is saying so wonderfuly: “Singing is a way of honoring Oxygen” Let’s breathe, relax…& listen! Marcomé

Other iMixes you might enjoy: New Age Music Classics , Smooth music to relax , Ambient and Dance music , Great Female Artists.

A Whole New World reality in New Age Music

300-oceanpostnaLike the song in Disney’s “Aladdin,” there’s a whole new world in the manner which new age music is created, played, sung and perceived nowadays. I often feel the new age label repulses people. It seems to mean, massage, yoga, meditation music, esoteric, new age era but not in a good sense. As if new age music was only meant to make you fall asleep!
It surely is a relaxing music at times but can’t it also be a good companion in the encounter of our true nature? A mean to connect with our inner world while dancing, walking, hiking? Read more
