A New Old Song I have lots of music from all around the world, but found this song last night browsing some 1950’s songs.  I love that era, and the tune is really nice.  At first I thought it was Harry Belafonte, but it’s actually Louis Prima, a guy that I didn’t know about before

Spirits I’m currently in Quebec City having a look around.  I was in Montreal several months ago and wanted to compare it to Quebec City.  Quebec City is much smaller than Montreal, but comparisons can be made.  I’m here 5 days, which is a lot for this size city, but enjoying it so far.  French

Yim Yames In about a month, Jim James (also goes by Yim Yames) will be performing here in my city. I’m not sure if I’ll go, as standing around in concert venue for 3-4 hours straight isn’t in my thing anymore.  He’s an American singer/songwriter who is also the frontman of the band My Morning

Dance A couple of artists came together to create this tune.  I heard it on my recent around the world trip and made note of it.  It’s not amazing, just a fun tune. Klangkuenstler is a techno artist from Berlin.  Alice Phoebe Lou grew up in South Africa and now lives in Berlin too.  Some

Ao Melhor (The Best) What can I say, I just love Elza Soares.  Brazil has some wonderful music, and she’s a big part of that.  Here’s a song I found recently.  If you like it, Spotify does a pretty good job of recognizing similar artists. I’m not sure my link to the song via Spotify

Dance Fever Updating a monthly playlist on my site has been fun, but it takes a fair bit of work to find new music and post it.  I do like music from around the world and will definitely post it, I’m just not sure exactly what form that will take.  Posting individual tracks on my

Start Me Up A fairly random collection put together at the last minute, as I lost over 100 songs on my Spotify playlist by accidentally deleting a large set of songs.  That deletion was frustrating, but I guess I’ll just have to find other songs to populate future playlist.  An assortment of singers from Africa,
