Nice Pipes!
Just the opposite for me: A good example of Celtic-style music that just rubs the wrong way.

i'm all for world mixes, at least half of what i listen to falls in there, and i love Afro-Celt, especially the 3rd and 4th "volumes."

but i think its the manic instruments universally on the top of these tracks by Hevia that made me eventually sell back two of their albums. once again i find i love what's going on in the background with this one, but the foreground is like dragging a paperclip across my eyeballs.



I dig it...

Now that's just mean. ^_^

I don't think there's enough variance in this genre to allow for too many acts. Afro Celt does this stuff better, and even a lot of their work sounds a little too similar at times...

I'm all for world music, fusion, experimentation, etc.--but too many ingredients in this melting pot ruins this soup for me.

ACSS, is that you? Similar... but not quite there. Missing the building percussion. Still pretty good though.
The guy on the cover looks like Brad Pitt.
Sounds like the background music in EPCOT at Walt Disney World just before Illuminations begins. For that reason I like it. Makes good background music. -dave
worth listening too!

I think that there may have been several notes played there which normally would have pleased my ear, but unfortunately they were mis-arranged. No more than a 3 on a good day.
Erk, I'm good with most of it except for that bassline :puke: DjThirteenP wrote:
It's the mid-80's world music bassline that really ratchets up the cheese factor on this one. No, wait, it's the travel agency t.v. ad canned Ireland rif.

nice sound. love the pipe.
:sunny: fun!
For the first second i thought this was Bananarama.. clearly I was mistaken! :)
hehehhehhe :jump:
This is used in the musical prelude to the Epcot fireworks show. I remember tapping my foot to the music.
Meh.
what can one say, but, HUH?
hmm, i was just logging in to say... this band sounds like a mellowed-down version of afro celt sound system. does rp ever play them? TerryS wrote:

Agree with Ms Judi: sounds a lot like Afrocelt.........which means that they are best seen live, but still vibrant and time well wasted, as they say elsewhere.

LOL! Too funny. I like fondue though.

I agree. I tried out pandora and found it a BIG waste of listening time (and time in general). I'd much rather let Bill winnow the musical morass for me. Which reminds me, I need to send RP another check.... I totally agree. But you should do automatic monthly payments for RP. I do - no money better spent. Wish I could contribute more. ps. so weird to see my name all over the place
I don't know why, but I love it!

Funny, though - what I hear there, I've already heard here, numerous times. RadioParadise, you're still cutting edge. Thanks for all your hard work, and for all the great music.

Get it right boys'n'girls :wink: :dance: :good-vibes:

yep. nuttin new here. sounds just like all the rest of the "world beat" easy-listening-electronica bunk to me - Delirium, Lost at Last, Enigma, Deep Forest, ACSS, etc etc etc... the whole schtick has been old and played out since the early 90s.

... or the giant bong, as the case may be.
Is this Celtic and Middle Eastern instrumentation with Hindu-chant words from India (thought I heard Rama repeatedly)? I like the Celtic/Middle-Eastern instrumental liaison. I am still deciding about the lyrics--maybe that makes it too eclectic . . .
Holy shit, I thought this was gonna be the Afro-Celts!
This almost sounds Irish. Like Irish on craic!
It feel so... contrived. :roll:
:clap:
This is not a didj, but he does play it on another track - "Busindre Reel"
BOW BEFORE THE DIDJERIDU !!!
gotta love the Spanish bagpipes - and this reminds me of Kila, as well...
This one'll get your heart pumping!
Fun!
Dancin Leprechauns !
WoW!

Shari, you HAVE checked out Afrocelts (a.k.a. Afrocelt Sound System), I hope. If you like this genre, you will like them. Also check out Kila. I really like the Celtic stuff, too, and am a BIG fan of Afrocelts.

Sorry to say that Hevia is not a very good example of the Celtic tradition, since he became famous for introducing some kind of "electronig-bagpipe-sound" instrument into his music. Weird, isn't it? Carlos Nuñez is an interesting Celtic bagpiper, if you want to check it out.
Thanks for the tip, although I realize Hevia is "celtic" in a similar way to AfroCelts, just one element in a bright eclectic world fusion weave. It may start on a Headland in Spain, but moves on to Mountains in Morocco and on around the world, and further back in time, with the didg echoing a Stone age sound from one of the few cultures to preserve one.

Since I uploaded it, thought I might introduce it. Hevia is Jose Angel Hevia Velasco, a Spanish bagpiper from the rather little known Celtic tradition of Asturias. I tend to think of it as "rockin'-out-around-a-fire-on-a-headland-or- mountaintop" music. :)

It's strange to hear this in an american radio, but much better than many other spanish music you use to hear (Macarena, Asereje,...)

This leaves me twitchy.
great tune! Reminds me a lot of AfroCelt Sound System, or whatever they\'re calling themselves these days. Good thing I like that sound, eh? ;)
Veddddddddy Interesting!! and good, too :whistle:
Pretty good, thanks philarktos. I like Busindre Reel better though.
