Little-known music worth checking out!

Ivo Papasov and his Bulgarian Wedding Band. No, I'm not kidding. Look him up on Youtube. Watch, listen, be astonished. Makes Dave Brubeck, Captain Beefheart, Sun Ra, and other folks who have experimented with multiple time signatures and polyrhythms look like hopeless amateurs. THIS is why the best music matters - it goes equally to your head, your heart, and your feet and makes it seem like anything is possible. (Although anybody who actually tries to dance to this stuff is liable to wind up in the hospital from trying to move in five different directions at once.)
