Edmund Rostand: Cyrano de Bergerac

One of the most celebrated romances of the yesteryears, Cyrano de Bergerac, deserves another re-read. Written in 1897 by French dramatist Edmond Rostand, this story of mistaken love and identity-switching still has us at the edge of our seats as it did more than a century back.

…anabase* “Le bonheur flou Le bonheur flou” – so good, you won’t notice the language barrier

People often ask me how many languages I speak, simply because my music collection holds so many international artists who don't sing in English. But to tell the truth, I don't require a song to be sung in a language I understand, in order for me to be able to connect with it. If you never thought you could get into music in any language other than English, I urge you to give Anabase's Le Bonheur Flou a try.

Jan Felipe “Abril” – indietronica with a truly international flavour

One of the things I really love about Creative Commons music is the potential to connect directly with artists. It helps increase my enjoyment of the music, knowing a little about what these musicians are like and understanding their drive to create. Often they contact me via after seeing their albums in my library, and the conversation develops from there. Sometimes, as in the case of Brazilian songwriter Jan Felipe, it can lead to some very interesting things.
