foreign music week: celtic woman

today’s foreign artists hail from the the land of winter. celtic woman is a group of five female artists who perform celtic songs and covers of contemporary music. they occasionally have their shows broadcasted on pbs whenever the network is trying to raise funds. personally, i’ve never donated money to pbs but i’ve enjoyed many of their shows so a big thanks to those kind enough to provide me with entertainment as well as information. celtic woman currently has four albums out, which i, regrettably do not own. if anyone would like to purchase me a copy of any or of all, please don’t hesitate to do so.

ok so i guess this post has two points: the first is that i love celtic woman and you should, too! the second is that i’m too cheap to either donate money to pbs or buy celtic woman cds myself.

foreign music week: shakira monday

alrighty it’s foreign music week. for the next week, i’ll be posting some of my favorite music from around the world. why? just because i feel like it. also, it makes me happy. 


today’s foreign performer is shakira. i first came across shakira as a senior in high school when juan, the kitchen guy from freebirds, used to blast her album ,dónde están los ladrones?, while he worked. i loved walking into the kitchen and hearing the eclectic sounds of ojos asi. he eventually gave the cd to me and i probably listened to that song a million times that week and practiced my hip drops and lifts in front of the mirror years after i graduated high school. later that year, shakira came out with her english album, laundry service. after finding out from a customer that there was an english version of ojos asi on it, i had to get it on my way home. unfortunately, it didn’t match the original, which has been a staple on many of my playlists even now.

besides, who else can make a veil or rope as sexy as shakira can? 

enjoy the videos!
