I’m not much into the popular music these days. Although, my favorite is Dave Matthews, I wouldn’t consider him “popular” because he’s hardly played on the radio and I usually like his stuff that isn’t played on the radio.
Nonetheless, here’s some music that I do like that are on the fringes. Maybe you’ve heard of them, maybe you haven’t:
Yanni. He’s the guy on the keyboards with the mustache. I really like his rendition of Vivaldi:
Seven Nations. It’s very eclectic. Can you think of any other band that has bagpipes, a violinist, and it’s very rock-ish?
Finally, my sister introduced me Black Violin. I can’t believe someone found a way to combine classical music with hip-hop/rap.
You can go to their website here. Wait for it to finish downloading and you can hear it stream. It’s freakin’ amazing.
