Music

There is one thing I really like while travelling to different countries and meeting with new people. And this is discovering new music! When I used to live only in Germany, most time I listened to American, Britain or German mainstream pop or rock music. I do this still today. But as I met many people, specially from Eastern European countries, I got to know many kinds of new music from this regions. Here I will show you some of my favourite songs from different countries. ;)


Armenia

Reincarnation: The first Armenian band I got to listen here in Dilijan. Usually I don't like Reggae so much, but this band is quite nice...

Ruben Hakhverdyan: A very popular singer-songwriter born in Yerevan in the 1950ies. Nice melancholic music :)

Iveta Mukuchyan: A candidate for the Eurovision Song Contest. A bit strange mix of pop and traditional Armenian style. But if you listen to this enough times, you get used to it...



Russia

Kino and Viktor Zoj: These kind of Soviet rock from the 1980ies I really like. Psychedelic and revolutionary at the same time!


Poland

Szymon Chodyniecki: This seems to be 'usual' Polish pop. But nonetheless a nice song and a great video, too :)

Hungary

WellHello: To be honest. I don't know anything about this band :D but this song is very nice and I found it when I was searching for Hungarian music...



Ukraine

Okean Elzy: As far as I know the most popular Ukrainian rock band. And they are not just popular in Ukraine, but also in Russia and other post Soviet countries. Here one of my favourite songs...

Belarus

J:MORS: This band from Belarus is a recommendation of а participant from a summer school I attended in 2014. Nice music :)
