“Even the most jingoistic person would have to admit that even American cultural music comes from Europe. That’s what classical music is, real European music”.
There is on our continent no big audiovisual machine like MTV entirely devoted to the circulation of European musical contents. There is of course a European song contest that occurs once a year but it is based on the discovery of new groups instead of putting forwards already existing and successful bands. Europeans unfortunately face a desert audiovisual landscape, which doesn’t lack of content but of network. This is all the more a pity, if we just consider that some European music hits would be willing to make the whole continent dance. Just discover some of the best pop title of Europe, such as the one in Latvia, Netherlands, Poland and Belgium by clicking on the link to YouTube.
♪♪♪ Crystalline – Björk : Björk was an obvious choice to represent Iceland for the first European pop playlist. Her new album is full of surprises, as always, and very aesthetic. Be careful, this is Björk: you’ll like… or not !
♪♪♪ Zsa Manca – !DelaDap : DelaDap is a music project born in Praga and aims to mix different musical style. In Zsa Manca, one has the impression of listening at the same time music from Balkan and Gotan Project.
♪♪♪♪♪ Maszynka Do Swierkania – Czeslaw Spiewa : pay attention to this video clip full of poetry and music full of emotion (especially at the end). It has been viewed more than 10 million times in Poland…
♪♪♪ Machine – Esthetic Education : Here is an unconventional band with entertaining pop music. As said in the description of the video, this group is creating a unique body of work in the Post Soviet musical world.
