I've loved the music of this dynamic acoustic guitar duo since the early 90's . . . their music combines the influence and elements of Latin and Middle Eastern music (Jorge Strunz is Costa Rican, while Ardeshir Farah is Iranian). The music is a world-jazz fusion style which offers an interesting blend of music that I never get tired of listening to.
Since I'm such a music freak, I spend lots of time on MySpace cruising for new music. This is where I discovered Ari Hest two years ago . . . he has become one of my favorite singer/songwriters and as a relative newcomer, I expect great things are gonna happen for Ari.
A productive musician and prolific songwriter, Ari writes songs every week and tours consistently throughout the year, honing the tunes in front of ever-appreciative audiences. During the two years since his major label debut, Ari has produced two DIY recordings -- 2005's Guilty Hearts EP and 2006's The Green Room Sessions -- for which he produced and recorded his performances on every instrument using Apple's GarageBand software. Still, there was plenty of new material ready for The Break-In. "By the time we began recording for this album, I had enough songs written that I didn't have to write anything in the studio," Ari says of the song selection. "We just had to arrange what was already there."
Sometimes you up Sometimes you down But you feel it in your heart You can't go wrong

Modern Talking Playlist
Fans of Europop and dance/pop music will love this "italo-disco" synthesizer-based style of music that was Modern Talking's trademark which made them popular in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South America back in the 80's . . . surprisingly . . . only popular in North American dance clubs here and there.
Modern Talking, a duo from Germany, is one of my favorite groups since dance/pop is my preferred style of music . . . they remind me so much of the Bee Gees and Ace of Base . . . check out my playlist of their music if you also love this style of music . . .
Europop/dance/pop is the style of music I turn to most often . . . my music tastes are extremely diverse and what I listen to changes as my moods change . . . but my love for this type of music makes it my absolute favorite.
One of the things I love most about the internet is the world has become smaller and we can have friends all over the world . . . the universal language of music sometimes helps to bridge a gap between people and shows us that we have much in common even though we are so very different in our language and cultures.
The sharing of the love of music between friends has been something I have really enjoyed . . . I had never heard of this group Modern Talking before one of my friends from Iran asked me what my opinion of this music was. That one question opened up a whole new world of music to me . . . although most of their music is from the 80's, it is fresh and new to me . . . a beautiful discovery from a beautiful person.

I'm in the process of replacing YouTube videos that no longer work . . . and updating posts. Thank you to YouTube and the music industry in general for creating so much extra work when I could be creating new posts . . .
