I do have a pirated CD of Tibetan-ish music played with Western string instruments. It even says "DSD" on the disc. Sounds wonderful but has audible artifacts.

Other than that, well, enjoy this.

Eugene was a classically trained singer. He sings an aria "Lascia ch'io pianga" 2:50 seconds in biggrin.gif

 

He knows how to have fun too; he covered Page's I'm sorry amazingly here. Not to mention both parts of the duet.

 

 

Here's the original song:

Supreme team.  Excellent rappers.  Best album was Supremier

I'm going to drop a bombshell here.

"The Trades of Love"

Apparently this piece is heavily panned in Mainland China. For whatever cultural reasons that I do not know and do not wish to know.

Personally though, I find this piece much more listenable than, well, Lady Gaga, for one.

Thanks Sinue. I still kinda prefer the classic rap styles used by EPIK HIGH/Kensie/Dynamic Duo/TBNY etc but your videos are really growing on me smily_headphones1.gif  I needed to find more Korean music. Thanks for the help XD

^The first video was very entriguing.  I've noticed that Japanese artists are mostly female.  I haven't seen much male artists. I think Korean music has started it's music cultural transformation from hip-hip to boy bands, to more alternative rock type and more vocals focused music.  I like the present state compared to the boy band stage where everybody had the same hair styles and it was very bland.  Korean music is starting to show more originality in my view.  Styling is overall more original than before.  It seams, it evolved into it's own style and culture.

 

Here is CNBLUE, rock that is mainstream which is rare, but it's happening now.  I know it is kinda poppish still, but music is evolving.
