Some nice folk style dance music.
The other day a mate and I were discussing odd measures, in particular 9/8. Never did such rhythms before, and I was wondering how such a song would turn out. Well, the playing wasn't very hard, but the singing really needs concentration. When you had 4/4 and 3/4 for decades, a sudden 9/8 doesn't feel familiar, I can tell, but in the end it was fun and the result seems to sound pretty much authentic.
Allons-y danser ma fille
La musique éternelle nous appele, pourquoi tu ri?
T'es si jolie ma créole belle
Ferme tes yeux, balance un peu
Viens te perdre dans mes bras
Dance avec moi si tu veux
Doucement, tout en rond, c'est facile comme ça
Let's go there for a dance my girl
The everlasting music calls us, why do you smile?
You're so cute my Creole beauty
Close your eyes, rock a little bit
Come to lose yourself in my arms
Dance with me if you want to
Gently, in a circle, it's easy like that
