Great little video showing the talented musician SaReGaMa playing a Kalimba Solo from his track Air. The Kalimba is an instrument I don’t see often and this video shows off the instrument very well.

If you are interested in hearing more music from SaReGaMa you can visit his personal site.

You can also find his album Inward Journey available now on both eMusic and also Napster.

Original YouTube Video.

Searching through some videos on YouTube and I came across some videos of some very talented Glass Harp players that I wanted to share.

Here is a selection of my favourite ones I came across.

It must take a while to set up and tune these everytime, but the end result is a very nice sound. I wonder how often the glasses crack whilst being played. enjoy!

Another site worthy of being on Rhythm Creation. OurStage is a nice site with a great concept in creating charts of submitted music from various genres. It has features for both listeners and musicians that make OurStage a worthwhile visit for both.

OurStage is unique due to the way the charts are worked out. Listeners or Judges as they are known have to choose between two tracks in their chosen genre, voting on a scale which one they prefer the most. All these votes are then worked out and the chart is updated. This system seems to work well because it stops people from being high up the charts just because they’ve got lots of friends who they have asked to become fans and it is more down to the actual music (Although it probably isn’t flawless at preventing this).

There are some great Prizes available too for musicians and bands which are very successful in the charts. I have been using OurStage now for a couple of months and have heard some good tracks and my track Overdrive managed to finished 7th in the electronic category for January. I asked no one to vote for me, so this shows you can get high up in the charts with no sneaky votes, showing their system works reasonably well.

OurStage is definately a place for musicians to get some free and also exciting publicity for their music.

Every now and again on Rhythm Creation I feature a web site which is of great use to us musicians. This time is a great little site which I have personally started to use called Jamendo.

Jamendo is a site which allows visitors to discover, listen to and download Creative Commons licensed music thanks to the large number of extremely generous musicians who place their personally made music on there for you to listen to and download for free.

At the current time of writing there are over 7000 albums waiting to be discovered and over the past few weeks I have been discovering new musicians and have also been impressed with the quality of some of the music I have heard. I have even taken the trouble to upload some of my own tracks. As a musician you will find that they offer some great tools and services to help you get your music out there and get people listening. You will get some honest feedback on your music from the enthusiastic Jamendo community, can see stats on how many people have downloaded or starred your album and listeners can even support your music with a optional donation if they want to.

Jamendo is a breath of fresh air compared to most sites and provides a good service for both listeners and musicians. I’ve enjoyed listening to peoples music knowing it’s legal and that they want me to as well as knowing people might be enjoying my music. It is certainly a site I will be regularly visiting, listening and reviewing other peoples music on as well as uploading my own stuff to.
