If you are anything like me you will be scared to even listen to this music as it’s positive and happy sounding. What I noticed after a few listens to this track It started growing on me I am still not saying I like it or anything just that the tune is quite addictive so be careful if you are one of those people who are prone to get addicted to tunes and when you hear the sound of your earworm, You think to yourself, ”No! Not that happy music again”.
I found this one on soundcloud it’s classified as Bossa Nova Guitar I quite like it but there is little about the Artist just that they are from Stockholm in Sweeden quite another world from Brazil where the music originates.
Originally the Bouzouki is of Greek origin thus the strange name, It was adapted for the creation of Irish Folk Music in popular music the Irish Bouzouki has featured on such tracks as the Kate Bush song Night of the Swallow where it was played by the artist Donal Lunny. The Instrument was first introduced into Irish folk by the artist John “Johnny” Moynihan a member of a group called Sweeney’s Men who did not specialize in only Irish music but also covered such songs as Tom Dooley a song from the US state of North Carloina about a murder of a woman called Laura Foster back in 1866.
One of the Group members of Sweeney’s Men Joseph “Galway Joe” Dolan not to be confused with the other Joe Dolan who is something like Ireland’s answer to Tom Jones. Had been rumored to have gone to fight in the six days war but this was a joke they had about him that he arrived on the seventh day. Galway Joe Dolan actually had gone on an archaeological expedition to the Israeli Negev desert which is now a region that is the primary producer of solar energy in Israel.
Instead of sharing something old here being played on the Irish Bouzouki I am sharing an original music creation being played on the Irish Bouzouki this tune was recorded in Ohio by an artist called Ben Williamson
