Pete Seeger passed, I grew up with his music. The video also has June Carter and Johnny Cash, they all have passed. Brings back memories of sitting in our living room with my family and their friends with their musical instruments playing these songs. That's how we used to entertain ourselves, we played our own instruments and sang to each other. I couldn't sing, but I could play the heck out of the spoons :tongue:

Akron/Family has some pretty good stuff, their songs have been in a couple movies, IIRC a couple of the guys are Buddhist, in places it's fairly obvious by the lyrics.






"Just as a lotus does not grow out of a well-levelled soil but from the mire, in the same way the awakening mind
is not born in the hearts of disciples in whom the moisture of attachment has dried up. It grows instead in the hearts of ordinary sentient beings who possess in full the fetters of bondage." -Se Chilbu Choki Gyaltsen

The song is Tam Lin, a traditional ballad from the Scottish Border lands. The more well known version was done by Fairport Convention in 1969. This beautiful acoustic version is done by two American singer-songwriters, Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer.

This is a nice album with a Buddhist theme. It´s really world music but it could be reminding to think of Dharma.

George Crumb is a modern classical composer. A piece for piano Makrokomos has twelve parts based on the Zodiac. George Crumb composed two versions of it: Makrokosmos I and Makrokosmos II

Punk :



Metal :



Alternative/Undefined :



Electronic :



Please try not to get attached to any of the tunes I linked, can't be doing with the karma. :sage: (used to play guitar often, so music is kind of part of me.)

There are probably many people here who have been actively involved in music, and maybe involved for long periods of time. Personally I find that trying to develop meditation requires giving up various things.
When playing music you are very concentrated, concentrated in an emotional way. And it is very hard to give up. But relinguishing music with a motoric rythm, and all the emotions involved with it, seems a necessary step for the development of meditative states, that are by nature very different.

Yeah I know what you mean, and to be honest I rarely listen to any music nowadays. I just get the urge every now and then, then will listen to some of the tunes that I used to prefer over recent years. Went a bit overboard with the linking of videos back there, but probably won't be posting here much now as I don't have a huge amount of favourite tunes anyway. Electronic is generally what I prefer now, (the first video I linked is probably my current favourite of that bunch.) so will maybe link if I manage to find anything decent in the future.

I think Fanbei (Dharmic Music) is fine. If you can't let go of it in meditation then you're probably not meditating in a very effective way.

Music is a great way to keep your mind on the Dharma, and also to spread the Dharma. It's been used for this purpose since the Buddha's time when King Prasenajit was moved out of pity not to attack Anga, because a monk sung the Dharma to him so beautifully.

I just wanted to share this, it's so beautiful!:
