Today is the birth aniversary of Pablo Moncayo, 100th years ago.
I will not get you bored with details, so I will go quick, He was born today minus 100 years. (let’s see that math of yours 🙂 )
He wrote Huapango a master piece that totally represents mexicans. It is contemporary music, so if you are a little bit into Classical, you will get to like it.
It is not dull at all, on the contrary, it has flute and trompet dialogs, harps talking to each other and percussions that lead the rest of the instruments triumphantly!
Lets make a deal. Click on the video and listen to it while you browse other’s blogs. You will like it I promise or else, the refund of the post. 🙂
Last time I posted a video, I was asked if I could post lyrics. Well, here are the lyrics plus the notes. I hope someone likes it, and for a change grabs his/her guitar. Also I included an english translation. Enjoy. 🙂
Won’t Stop Raining – Erik Rubin
須藤 元気 or Genki Sudo used to be a martial artist and a kick boxer. What does he have to do with me? Well, my name is not Japanese, at least that I know of. So it has to be something else.
Sudo is well known for his particularly flashy choreographed ring entrances that often included costumed dancers.
He formed a musical group called World Order. Sudo takes care of the lyrics, the music and all the choreographies.
I am starting to think that we have something in common. Anyways, World Order was in Mexico and shot this video.
It is worth looking because of many reasons… The group show a fantastic synchronicity and it show many places of Mexico City, among them, the Pyramids of Teotihuacan.
You will enjoy it!
Love Aches or Duele el Amor in spanish and easy soft pop song sang by mexican Aleks Syntek.
I hope you go through it all as it is a nice song.
Just sit, close your eyes and listen.
I thought you would find this music video cute. This is a mexican duet, they are brothers and call themselves Jesse & Joy.
Hope you enjoy and also the Chocolate!
Some other songs from the same group you might like:
I found this group at a public presentation. They play nicely with violin and keyboards. Their name: Arcano. You can do a search in youtube to find several of their recordings.
If you are into Classical music, you will like to hear a part of this song.
Thought about it.. then thought it would be a good idea: This year I will do musical posts!
You have seen how Mexico looks like in pictures… what about how it sounds with songs? Will do my best to make a good selection. In the meantime turn it up!!!
