focal point : Dead Can Dance

Mysterious … Entrancing … Other-worldly …Dead Can Dance (Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry) appeared out of nowhere in the 1980's, sounding like nothing or no one around them ... It was as if they were musical ghosts haunting the world with their strange and beautiful ancient, yet modern sounds ... 

Their sound has been described as "constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty; African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chant, Middle Eastern mantras, and art rock.” Lisa Gerrard sings in her own "language" or glossalalia, similar to what young children use to talk or sing or what some pentecostal groups use to pray (speaking in tongues). 

 As always,

Number Songs

A "soundtrack of sorts" all about numbers and counting ... 
No need to do the math because it doesn't get any simpler than that!

As always,
