Some hand-picked music videos from a variety of music artists and genres. New videos added periodically, so check back.
Artist: Esperanza Spalding
This woman is so cool it blows my mind.
Artist: Alsarah and the Nubatones
She’s a singer. She’s a songwriter. She’s an ethnomusicologist. And now Sudanese-born Alsarah has become the face and voice of Nubian pop.
I have to admit that I haven’t paid much attention to Beck – but his song Heart Is A Drum from his album Morning Phase may change that.
“Bulgarian ethnofusion” from some very talented musicians. Pretty cool, pretty neat.
Artist: Seun Kuti & Egypt 80
Genre: World Music
More Afrobeat and social commentary from one of the best world music groups.
Artist: Rotem Shefy and Leat Sabbah
My award for “Most Creative Cover of a Radiohead Song.”
Artist: The Beatles
Excellent 4-minute video summing up the musical story of the most influential rock group of all time.
Artist: Dédé Francois Sekli
Ziu Guru (Uncle Guru) is a song about an uncle who’s a bad influence. Despite the familial problem, Croatian singer/songwriter Sekli and guitarist Jean Jacques Murgia are melodic, rhythmic and pretty impressive.
Artist: Stormy Strong
Stormy Strong has been pumping out rock music for quite a while. His cover version of the Pixies’ Where Is My Mind is from his latest EP, Take Her Down. Nice!
Every now and then, don’t you come across a song or video that you just don’t want to end? Check out Hats (Make Me Wanna Holler) from Incognito’s latest album, Amplified Soul.
Artist: David J. Caron
I featured Irish modern rocker David J Caron in an article earlier this year. Now, Caron is back with another song and video combo that he describes as perfect for those “who are able to read between the lines and decipher the hidden meaning.”
Artist: Jefferson Airplane
One of the most influential bands of the 1960s. Feed your head.
Artist: Deep Purple
The video is kinda weird but this version of the song is a classic. Hush, written by Joe South, was released on the band’s 1968 debut album, Shades of Deep Purple. Jon Lord plays one of the great rock keyboard solos of all time.
