“Hermetico” by Balkan Beat Box

March 3, 2009

So, my friend was raving about the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack and it got me thinking about another great worldbeat band, Balkan Beat Box.  The video below is live footage of the band performing the song “Hermetico” from their 2007 album “Nu-Med.”  I will one day see them in concert.  That day would come sooner if somebody would just donate some concert tickets.

Check out more of Balkan Beat Box at their official website or on Myspace

“In a Silent Way” by Miles Davis

October 29, 2008

It goes without saying that Miles Davis was extremely talented and influential, but I had to throw up this clip of his song “In a Silent Way” from the 1969 album of the same name. Very minimalist, and a precursor to jazz fusion and, dare I say, ambient music in general? You can really hear Brian Eno in this piece. Great album…one of many from Davis.
