This week SongTalk tried something a little different. We brought in some our favourite songs sung in a different language than English.
They say music is the international language so we thought we would put that to the test. Phil, Neel and Mike each presented three songs in a language other than English and we talked about what it was that made them so appealing.
Topics that came up:
- the first time we were aware of a song in another tongue
- what you gain from listening to a song when you don’t understand the lyrics
- how does the distinctive rhythm of a language affect the song
- where do you best discover music from other places
