muchas gracias - Maryam, thank you for the links.
This is such a great idea!
I think it would be good to post links to musicians from all different countries.
Always in search of new sources of information, I'll try to find some Russian ones.

YEY! - WOW! Thank you so much. I love spanish music. Especially pop like David Bisbal, Alex Ubago, El Canto del Loco and Beth. I wish I'd known about phrasebase when I did my oral project on "El Festival de Eurovisión y el cambio de la musica en España". Thank you, Maryam!
A good site for Spanish music and TV information is www.portalmix.es and you can keep up with the spanish charts at www.los40.com . There are even interviews with bands.
Anyone interested in Spanish pop music should listen to "La Madre de José" by El Canto del Loco - It's the best song ever!

PS: Do you know of a mexican rap group that I think begins with "es..." (NOT ESTOPA!!!) Someone was telling me about it and I've never heard of them.
MaryamThursday 26th of August 2004 09:39:20 AM
- Hi there happyturnip!

Well I guess you are very keen in spanish music, and yes I also I like el canto del loco.
about the site you say, it keeps up to date "los cuarenta principales" but then it's all mixed spanish and other languages. But anyway it's a great site. About the rap group, I will try to find out for you.

Regards,

Maryam

Hi Zark! - Well thanks for your comments. I do like french music but strangely,even though France and Spain are neighbours and we are part of the ECC yada yada... french music is not very well known here. Of course I like salsa, you know. But also mambo and guaracha :)

Hugs,
Maryam

Of course you can find French artist in Europe, but also in Canada.. we have few International signer like Celine Dion, Garou, Bruno pelletier, Jean Leloup etc.. Anywya, we are in the Spanish discuss and i don't want to change the topic :)

I agree with Mambo, but never heard about Guaracha.. maybe i should take some dance lesson lol

i think i will get an eyes on 'le chant du fou' (el canto del loco) lol

I have a question, what is the 'TROPICAL' music style ? something like salsa, merengue ?

Take care..



MaryamThursday 02nd of September 2004 10:35:40 AM
- TROPICAL music style is a general term to express all kinds of styles having an african-hispanic base.

For example, merengue but also cumbia, baClassrooma, guaracha... salsa. The important fact is that it is not only african, and not only hispanic.. but it has both elements.
I am going to continue posting interesting links about hispanic music so I hope it will help you.

Regards,

Maryam

- Talking of music, does anyone with access to TVE know who's winning Eurojunior? I started watching in Spain last month and really want to know who won.
Zarkann, you say you like 'Deutsch' music. Try www.guildo-horn.de . The man is mad but does a very amusing version of I love Rock and Roll in German!

Oh- just remembered, do you know what La Canción Del Verano is? Is it O-Zone?
MaryamMonday 06th of September 2004 10:51:55 AM
to happyturnip - Hello, I am afraid I can´t help you with the Eurojunior question. I am myself trying to find where to get the song that represented Holland. It was so beautiful. But I am not lucky about this. As for the spanish song este verano, yo creo que es NO ME LLAMES DOLORES LLAMAME LOLA, it has a lot of success.
