Five For Friday: Non-Ethnocentricity

This week's playlist is filled with amazing music from all sorts of places that aren't America! I'm drawn to music from other cultures for many reasons; one being that I don't understand the language so the vocals become another instrument helping to create the emotion of the song. Also, I love seeing what instruments they incorporate that we tend to ignore (mostly). Very rarely do you come across an American band that writes music to be played on music boxes while using both an accordion and synths in the same song. Or maybe you'd like a little musical saw with your wind-up toys and plastic whistles? Well, today is your lucky day! Also, today my wife and I have been married for 11 years! That really has nothing to do with this playlist, but it's pretty amazing nonetheless and I'm thankful every day for an amazing wife who don't abhor my bizarre musical tastes. I love you, Jen! :)
Have a great weekend and go broaden your horizons!
