Do you know this band? If you have not heard of it, here’s a video to get you started: Ganduri de Pace, a nice synth-pop style song.
You can sample and buy less edgy stuff from them on iTunes: Lumina Mea
My next post goes to Adi Hentea and his Aleluia which was recognized at the Quo Vadis music awards a couple of years ago:
Let this music video speak for itself.
Album came out in 2012, a couple of years old now. Was followed up by a Christmas album.
This one seems to be a continuation of their style of music of late, both in songwriting and in instrumentation and production. Get it digitally from the Bandcamp website.
My first post will go to Teodora Popescu for her album “Pasiune”, simply because it is the latest one from Romania that I know of.
Here’s her website: http://www.teodorapopescu.ro/
If you are famiiar with her debut album, the songwriting style on this album is definitely the same, but this one is more elaborate in its production and instrumentation. “Zi de Zi” was simpler. You’ll like the guitar hooks, the driving rhythm on some of the tracks, the electronic elements of the title track “Pasiune”, and in general, the induction to worship on a personal level of the lyrics, You really get everything on this one: energy and quiet reflection. What I enjoy in her debut album “Zi de Zi” and this album also, is that nobody is trying anything too hard. Not in the lyrics, not in the melody, not in the arrangement, production, effects used, etc. It’s just well balanced.
Let me know what you thought of this album in the comments section.
Contributing for this album seem to be Dan Petric and Marius Pop.
Hopefully God’s name will be praised far and wide through all of the talent on this album.
