World Music - the Music Journey

Nouvelle Vague is a french musical collective led by musicians Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux in which different artists were integrated. The group resurrected classics from the New Wave music era and reinterpreted them in a bossa nova style.

This is my favorite song. I also identify myself a lot with this movie set 🙂

The Danubia Orchestra (conducted by Domonkos Héja) and the Muzsikás perform the Romanian Folk Music of Bartók in the Liszt Academy, Budapest

Romanian Folk Dances, Sz. 56, BB 68 is a suite of six short piano pieces composed by Béla Bartók in 1915. He later orchestrated it for small ensemble in 1917 as Sz. 68, BB 76.

It is based on seven Romanian tunes from Transylvania, originally played on fiddle or shepherd’s flute. The original name for the piece was titled Romanian Folk Dances from Hungary but was later changed by Bartók when Transylvania was annexed to Romania in 1918.[1] It is nowadays available in the 1971 edition which is written with key signaturesalthough Bartok rarely ever wrote key signatures.   Read more:

American Colonies Declare Independence (1776)

On June 11, 1776, one year into the American Revolution, Thomas Jefferson and other delegates of the Continental Congress began drafting a formal declaration of their intent to form a new nation. Their final draft of the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Congress on July 4, a date that would become a national holiday. Most of the congressional delegates signed it that August.
