Dacing to the Beat of Transylvania

Welcome to everyone who is new here. Comments are always welcome, and enjoy the posts! This one is about my adventures in music, so here's to some wonderful songs!

I love music and mostly I listen to my regular fare of Motown and 1960's music. I love that music. Of, course I wasn't alive then but I still enjoy it's much better than what is out there now. Recently though I was flipping through the TV to find something that might catch my eye. I don't take to much time to look at what is on maybe about 30 seconds, this way if it's a commercial I'll wait and see. I hit the multicultural channel at just the right time, and lo and behold, they had singing and dancing and... and MUSIC!

I didn't understand a word they said, but it was incredibly hypnotic and wonderful, the dresses, the music and the melody. I had to ask my mother, what this was. She speaks several different languages, and can normally make out a few more than what I can.

It was the Romanian language, and the background pictures on the screen were of Transylvania. The dress is a version of their traditional dress. And the music, well that would be what they sing!

Needless to say I'll be seeing more of this. Maybe it will help improve me Romanian, or at the very least I'll learn a bit more about Romanian dress, and music. It has a quick beat, uplifting and melodic. I for one am enchanted. I never expected the music to be as delightful as it was.

I'll be raving about this more tomorrow, as I must go and work on my book on Transylvania...

I, too, enjoy listening to music from foreign countries. There's a lot of good stuff out there that we Westerners don't really get to hear a lot of.
