Robert Burns was a good songwriter as well as a poet. In early May I went to see the Robert Burn Museum and walked down Poets Path and remember sitting outside Burns museum and smelling the lovely wild garlic flowers and taking in the Ayrshire Scottish landscape. It was lovely to visit as a writer and I like Robert Burns work. Anyway in 2003 Eddie Reader, who had the hit Its Got to Be Perfect with Fairground Attractions recorded some of Rabbie Burns folklore songs. I have the CD and I love it. Enjoy. Subrata. My favourite is Ae Fond Kiss.

I love this thread. My daughter and I are just now discovering our family tree and we have been contacted by some lovely folks in County Tyronne who believe we are related. I've gone a lifetime without knowing much about my family ties. This has me wanting to learn more about Irish traditions and especially music. Thank you for posting these wonderful videos. Don't stop, please. More, more, more.

Hi Annie, Yes I will post more videos in the future. As I am learning to play the acoustic guitar, I am learning about different folklore and traditional music as well. I tend to listen to music that suits my mood but Rory's music will always be my most favourite. Subrata.x

I am studying sound therapy as part of my motivational workshops in the future. Like Rory I believe music can physically heal the mind and body. Sound is powerful and so is music. The Ancient Brahmins of Indian believed that and they developed certain sounds that resonated with the body and they called them mantras. These mantras were passed down by word of mouth to men only strangely enough :roll: George Harrison of The Beatles would have known all about this and the temple he gave to the Hindu Community in Watford so graciously, there they sing mantra everyday. Well the Hare Krishna priests do. I am fortunate the temple is not far from me and I will be going their for puja next week on my time off. :) To me its one of the most beautiful places on earth.

One group I like is called DevalPremalMiten and their website is www.devaprimalmiten.com . They learnt the Mantras and put it into song and music form. They travel the world and Miten use to be in a rock group. But this is music in its purist form. I would love to have to talked to Rory about it and I am sure I do. This is one of my favourite songs and I first heard it at yoga. I was absolutely hooked. I love the imagery because Mother Earth is healing now and I feel I am healing with her.

This is not a traditional folklore music but then it could be. But do enjoy. Its called the Gayantri Mantra.

Anya Seyton has been one of my favourite authors since I was sixteen. I was drawn to her books. This you tube trailer highlights her book Katherine. It has traditional Celtic music. Enjoy. Subrata. x

The Bear. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbiyysY ... ata_player The Calling. Niall ( that is the only name that he is professionally known as) has been a songwriter since the early 90s. My generation of young seem to have been influenced by Native Traditional sounds. Niall is amazing. He combines modern electric music with synthesizer sounds and mixes traditional music with it. Here he does this using Native AmeriIndian music. Native American Indian music uses a lot of drumbeat music. I love the drum sound ( hence why I do African drumming). The sound of the drum can have healing properties. Here Niall and American Indians pay tribute to animals and Mother Earth. American Indians believes the earth belongs to everyone and will be inherited by our children. We are caretakers of the planet. I love Niall's work. Also I have just qualified in Reiki and was thrilled by pure synchronicity that Niall has done some Reiki albums. Amazing musician. Subrata. :0).x Just to add in AmerIndian culture every living thing, even rocks and trees has a song. They tend to chant. I would love to have known how Ancient Egyptian music went. We have their songs and instruments but no music! They too respected the living world. American Indian music can be found in the Blues. X

I loved some of the Prodigy songs of the 90s. Hope to see them on tour. Their music is influenced by native drumming sounds. My cousin /poet Anjan plays the tabla ( a type of Indian drum) and I have learnt a lot about drumming from him. Rory knew the drum was important in a band and he played with some amazing drummers. I am lucky to have heard Ted McKenna and Brendan O'Neils's drumming. Subrata.x

Suby, just found your thread and got a copy lesson. I have been listening a lot to the Swedish sisters of First Aid Kit. Hope you like them too.
