MUSICAL EVOLUTION or Language In songs Doesn't Have To Be Translated

Posted on at


Oppan Gangnum style

Sound Familiar?

This one phrase became known INTERNATIONALLY within months; especially in the US. It’s Origin? South Korea!

It’s a song no one understands, a song no one interprets for the meaning of its words….yet this didn’t stop the song from receiving a whopping world record of 1,000,000,000+ views

When it comes to Music, how diverse the languages are between the artist and listener, it really doesn’t matter. Sooner than later, LANGUAGE will be irrelevant (in music industry)

 ***

My name is Fred, and I am 24 years old. I was born in a small town called Mogilev (Belarus), my native language was Russian. Throughout my teen years enjoying the art of music, I strictly believed that people had to understand the spoken words in the song, in order to relish and perceive the music…

Still having the same ideas, I moved to New York City, USA. I cogitated that USA set out rules in Music, and sectioned/branded everything out. “Couldn’t speak English? Too bad” was a phrase that acted as a splinter in my brain. I eventually, and quickly, learned to speak English

However, an evolution is in the making. Just a while ago, Korean singer PSY released a song called “Gangnum Style”, in which its popularity flowed through the Earth like fire spreading across paper.

The 21st Century is making its debut!

A bit more than half a year ago I attended a French concert featuring the best Chanson singer ZAZ.

Not only did I not interpret a single word, I completely enjoyed the concert.

Also, I watched a video that had millions of views, of an Arabic singer producing his own song, in which the grammar was completely incorrect, the accent working as an obstacle, and I Barely understood a word he was saying. However I came to enjoy the video; which held cool audio effects, shocking good quality and I actually found some humor within the video.

If you didn’t guess it yet, I’d say it as I’ve said it in the beginning; language isn’t the first priority in getting someone to enjoy or dance to some music.

I have a band, called FKBAND, in which I had a choice to just display songs featuring the English language. However, I made it a priority that we sing both in English and Russian in our Concert program.

Why Russian in NYC? It’s a fresh idea, and I realized people don’t need translations in order to bust couple of moves and dance to some music.

All these examples were proof to the idea that Language could be un-important when it comes to music, and have roles as just an intro before the Invitation to the American-Russian jazz-hip-hop concert from the band called FKBAND.

The magic music act is going to be full of surprises. All the lyrics will be full of emotions and mental-drives. A Positive atmosphere only! I also hope that this concert can change all the stereotypes about Russian people.

I want to introduce our audience to the stylish, beautiful and charming acts from young and old international musical artists.

 

There will be a combination of songs in English and Russian from:

 

Fred Kurzh - lead vocals

Sergei Gurbelo - saxophone/flute

Nick Lazarev - bass

Lionel Cordew - drums

Dario Boente - piano

Olesya Rusanova - back vocal

Carolyn Harding - back vocal

Gevorg B. - back vocal

Pasha Newmer (special guest) - accordion

You are very welcome.
