BezoBratři is usually either reconstructing or re-inventing Czech traditional songs, using both contemporary and traditional lyrics. Ironically, I have chosen probably the only totally traditional songs that that band presented during their set. (Does that say something about my ear? Hmmmmm)
Both songs are about jealousy. The first song is a murder ballad about a boy, who doesn’t believe his girlfriend’s love is true. He questions her three times, she swears she loves him, but….. The second song begins with the words “What have I done, that you are angry with me.” It is a sad song with a lovely melody.

Welcome!

Here’s where you’ll find my weekly original world music video blogs that appear on Huffington Post, as well as an archive starting in April of 2009.

This is also the place where you will find video that is exclusive to my site. I’ve traveled to places like Uzbekistan, Morocco, and Taiwan and no matter where I go I have found amazingly talented and creative people working in every genre from the deepest traditions to the cutting edge.

It’s been incredibly rewarding to interview them and to capture some of what they do on video. Enjoy what you see and hear, and let me know what you think. I welcome your feedback.
