Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Beautiful music, tho my link is loading very s-l-o-w-l-y. The harmonies have a feel that is bery much like the Bulgarian music I've been hearing eg "Les Mysteres des voix bulgares"

That's no accident!

Ghost in the Shell (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

According to the soundtrack's liner notes, the haunting choral song that plays throughout the film is a wedding song, sung to get rid of all evil influences that are about to follow. The lyrics of the song itself seems to reflect the union between Kusanagi and Project 2501 which takes place towards the end of the movie. Kenji Kawai originally wanted to use Bulgarian folk singers, but was unable to find any, so he relied on the Japanese folk song choir he used earlier in the Ranma 1/2 anime. The song uses an ancient form of the Japanese language mixed with Bulgarian harmony and traditional Japanese notes.

wow !! I am really looking forward to the summer folk festival circuit out there that I'm getting plugged into. I go down to this arts centre and they play me this quite amazing music.

I have an album of bulgarian pipe and bagpipe and some of the playing is very reminiscent of Northumbrian and Irish pipe work. Oddly some of the stuff by the Afro-Celt Sound system fits in almost exactly.

Yes, it loads slowly for me too: it seems one bit-heavy YouTube video with lots of downloads.
