Asian Music to Honor the Middle of Spring

Hello Middle of Spring, and prepare for something Asiatic.

Dombra


The stringed Dombra/ styles of Western Mongolia, Watch this player. He creates quite the entertaining arrangement.
This song holds a touch of bitterness, but really, it has a feeling that winter is gone.
Yes, winter is gone, but it still rests in memory.

Ulytau – Turkish March


This take on Mozart comes from a group from Kazakhstan. You can hear some occidental violin playing, but with some folkie touches.
The jovial transition into Spring.




This is the heart of the post. This song from Laos is the pure epicenter of springtime. It is the emotional horizon of sensual music. It is soft, passionate, and most importantly, it gives the feelings of rebirth, life, and pure bliss.


Shahrizoda – My Sorrow



I try to fit Shahrizoda (Uzbek origins) into all of my Asian Music Parties, and I really wanted a reason to post this song. The chorus is extremely addictive, and this song just holds the quality that reminds us that Spring will lead into summer.
