Music in Esperanto
I will admit, I'm not too well versed in Esperanto music, but I would recommend everyone to check out this beautiful song composed by Valentina Cancino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=303M_aU1WIc#t=
I think this song will give quite a few people more/extra inspiration to learn the language after hearing it. :)
Feel free to post some great Esperanto songs in the comments section below!
Sadly I have yet to find original Esperanto music I enjoy =/ Especially if its supposed not to be older the like 2007, not to speak of current stuff.. =/
Try out my playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nH-j_ZEVGg&list=PL747931DF726CCBC7 It has become impossible to add every new Esperanto song that appears on Youtube but this was perhaps the first try to incorporate them all.
I am pretty much in the same position as you. I have only found a couple songs that I enjoy, but I am hoping for more music as Esperanto becomes increasingly popular. This is the kind of music I enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtveSk1N7Uo. Sadly, I have yet to find one song like it in Esperanto, lol.
I co-produced the Elektronika Kompilo back in 2003, a sampler featuring electronic music in Esperanto. The biggest problem with this kind of music is that it is not very popular during the most important Esperanto meetings in Europe. There have been quite a few electronic artists already 15 years ago but without a regular audience, there is no market for this.
This guy is pretty good too. He has a lot of songs.
when i first listened to cxu vi volas danci a while back I was really happy to have found someone. But for me only this specific version worked. His original recording and other work are very different from this beautiful version =(
Ĵomart ist part of the duo Ĵomart kaj Nataŝa. He is covering JoMo. The original song is "Do you wanna dance?".
