  • What country's style of music do you enjoy playing/listening to?

  • @gordon Music from Latin America (salsa, rhumba, cha,cha, batacha, etc.) and Caribbean (Calypso, Reggea, Soca, etc.) I enjoy listening, playing and dancing to!

  • Listening - East African, particularly anything in Swahili. I think it's the most musical language ever!
    Playing - 18th century Germany. In other words - Beethoven!

  • Russian. Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-korsakov, Mussorgski, Borodin, Glinka, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Rachmoninov, Shostakovich, Khachaturian etc etc. All good.

    I am partial to military music, due to the fact that I am an Army Brat! Since most of the music was written in the UK, I guess that is my country of choice. I remember my Father playing Regimental marches (he was the DM (NCO) for the 1st Independent Signals Corp's Drum and Bugle band - now 31 Signals based out of John Foote Armories). My Mother was from Britain, also in the military (a commissioned officer in the Medic Corp - 11th Field Ambulance), and loved Scottish Pipe and Drum music. The annual Fergus Highland Games was frequently attended by our family. I grew up also listening and appreciating Big Band music from my Aunts and Uncles who fought in WW2. But military music is my favorite!
    So long story short, like Gordon I love marches! I guess my 8 year tenure in BTTB also plays a part in this.
