The jenka dance music

November 28, 2008

Gudrun Jankis – Let Kiss (1965):

Accordind to wikipedia: “Letkajenkka, anglicized to letkis, is a Finnish dance that was invented in the early 1960’s on the basis of the folk dance schottische (in Finnish jenkka).The dance became a short-lived international craze with the release of the tune by Roberto Delgado in 1965.”
A performance of this dance can be seen in the movie Cry-Baby (1990) with Johnny Depp.
In 1965, four instrumental versions of the tune reached number one in the Netherlands simultaneously. These were by Stig Rauno, Gudrun Jankis, an unknown group called The Wild Ones and the Dutch Swing College Band. All four versions had the English title, Letkiss rather than the original Finnish title.

David Lynch

November 26, 2008

I don’t know why it didn’t come as a surprise to hear that Davin Lynch also does music. When you have this immense power that forces you to create, you only have to find some means to put that creation into whatever form it needs to reach the world.  This time, Lynch decided to use music. I don’t know how or if he put the idea into the actual musical notes, but his concept most certainly touched me.

This song is from the soundtrack of his 2006 movie: Inland Empire. I don’t know how many of you had recurring nightmares of the midget in Twin Peaks, but I am one of the people who were marked by that scene and the sight and sound of it still give me the creeps. This song is in tune with the atmosphere of all Lynch’s movies.

On the same note, I would like to present you a tune from the great Julee Cruise (the artist that sang on the Twin Peaks soundtrack). Floating is, as the name says, an eerie tune, great (or not) for any type of tripping experience.

Silent Strike

September 12, 2008

Silent Strike is Ioan Titu, a young talented Romanian artist. Here in Romania, you can easily count someone’s talent by the number of important openings for big artists. Silent Strike opened for most of them, so he is kind of making this a trademark. There are lots of other Romanian artists, but what I noticed in Silent Strike’s show is that he is very professional: he’s not just filling dead space – he’s making a real show, which is a step forward for the Romanian scene.

Big up!
