Contemporary music from around the world for Orthodox audience?
« on: December 15, 2015, 03:25:25 AM »
Is there contemporary music like Greek laika for instance that is written for Orthodox people or by Orthodox musicians even if not explicitly Orthodox in nature? I don't mind listening to foreign language music either.

The front man of Depeche Mode is Orthodox as well as of Soundgarden and Soulfly, a guitarist of Mr. Bungle. If you look for some solo artists there is Katie Melua. As for foreign music, all I got is that Leningrad frontman was studying for a time at theological academy. The lider of DDT also claims to be Orthodox.

I like the orthodox serbian folk musician, singer and multi-instrumentist Slobodan Trkulja, and his folk group Balkanopolis, it's very nice, some songs are based in byzantine chant and traditional serbian music.

Fairuz, probably the most beloved singer in n the Arab world, is Orthodox.

Honestly, though, we should just listen to good music no matter who made it.

I heard a georgian rapper called Master, in one of his songs, Mneunebian, appears orthodox liturgy and handcrafts, but I don't understand the lyrics.
