Music On the Fringes

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.
