The beat, the rythm and the stingo in my kind of music
I have always loved happy music with a clear beat. Boogie Woogie, Reggae and some rock and roll!
Stamp your feet, clap your hands and dance a little
When I was a teenager, Elvis Presley and Tommy Steele were popular and divided my friends in two fighting teams. We just recovered after Rock around the clock so now the music was a little familiar to us. I liked many songs but the ones with a clear beat more. The dance on parties was bugging. A little like the jitterbug but more civil if you understand what I mean.
Rock and roll is still in my life together with Boogie Woogie and Reggae. I forced my piano teacher to play the beautiful Unforgettable in boogie beat. He never completely recovered after that.
One day about a year ago, a friend sent me this video here under. It was a new group called Playing for change. I listened to how the song "Stand by me" grew into a goose bump chorus.
I was in awe. Signed up for their homepage forum and sent for the up coming DVD with songs from around the world.
I have shared with anyone who wanted to listen. Now the PFC group is releasing their second DVD the 31 of May, and I ordered it two months ago. I just have to have it =D.

Silvan Zingg is part of my emotional resurrection.
When my Darling husband died, I stopped caring. I died too a bit. The music went silent and I just wanted to sleep. Then one day, I heard a music video with Silvan Zingg. A miracle happened because my ears woke up. I loved his beat that is without stress, so easy going.
Then I found another YouTube video with Will and Maeva dancing to Silvan Zinggs piano playing. I smiled and my foot stared to tap on the floor. Since then I have started to listen to music again. However, Silvan Zingg is the one who woke me up.

Rhapsody in Rock
One evening many years ago, I was cleaning up in the kitchen, and the family was watching TV in the room. Suddenly there was a piano player who´s music went like a smoke into my ears. I dried my hands and with the towel still in my hands, I went into the living room. There was this young musician Robert Wells playing. I fell in love so hard and am still there. He had this easy going style and was just as familiar with classic music as Rock and Roll and Boogie Woogie.
Since then I have been to many of his concerts here in Sweden. They are called "Rhapsody in Rock". I have always come home with sore hands and a big smile in my face. He invites so interesting musicians to his show. Not the same each year though. He has been performing all over the world like in China and USA.
