Hello today...
this time I decided to put here something black and white - that's just life though sometimes some colours happen too (or lack of any colours at all). Ok. So today 2 songs from latest Maria Mena album titled VICTORIA. I hope you will like the songs beneath. :-)

1. Maria Mena Victoria
2. Maria Mena homeless

Ok. Now something more about Maria Mena (also from wikipedia):

Maria Mena was born into an artistic family, her mother, a playwright and her father, a drummer. Both Maria and her brother, Tony, are named after characters from Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story. Her mother is Norwegian and her father is Nicaraguan.

Her father played in several bands in Oslo, which influenced Mena to write and record her own music. When Mena was nine years old, her parents divorced. She suffered from depression and developed an eating disorder.

When Mena was 13 years old, she moved to live with her father. She sang and wrote lyrics as a form of self-soothing. "My Lullaby", a song from Mena's diary, expresses her pain from her parents' divorce. After pleading with her father to make a demo, he contacted some acquaintances in the music industry to record the demo. Presenting his daughter's demo to several record companies, Sony Music signed Mena to their label.


To be continued soon...

Hello,
That's me again. I have just had a look into this site and what can I see?
Do you like TIROL music? I think it is terribly boring. I am not able at the moment to scan for so many pages in this plot but I think TIROL music has appeared earlier here. Only I don't know where and when. So when I have so few time I want to put POLISH MOUNTAINEUS FOLKLORE - to me more interesting than slow German songs. And well... apart from being tuneful not interesting at all. Just like all other German songs only lyrics about Tirol when Polish mountaineous folklore is much more interesting from artistic point of view. If more sensful/less sensful I don't know. As deals lyrics - noone speaks language of poeple of mountains - so who cares? That's all. So when once again TIROL - Polish mouintaineous folklore also once again. Up to you what is really better and about what REAL problems the artists sing. :roll:

Silesia band Polish mountain music

cheers,
LM.

Amazing! Beethoven is one of my favorite Classical composers. However, the Violin solo concert he composed is a very difficult one but rich in Technic to practice and make you a better violinist ( Yes, I love it).
Well, to continue the thread, I've been listening to these songs lately:

"At Last" by Etta James.
"Romeo" by Basement Jaxx.
"Beautiful liar" by Beyoncè.
