In today’s digital world, where different instruments and sounds can be added to a song in just a push of a few buttons, one Ukrainian music band stands out for its persistence in using actual instruments. Brunettes Shoot Blondes, an indie rock band from Kiev, has transformed a broken 19th-century grand piano into a versatile musical machine that is capable of playing 20 different instruments.
As the birthplace of jazz music, New Orleans, Louisiana, has no shortage of music venues. Amid the eclectic street performers on Frenchmen Street and numerous jazz halls dotting the city, one institution stands out for its legacy of preserving, protecting and perpetuating traditional New Orleans Jazz, the aptly named “Preservation Hall.”
There’s a new phenomenon in the music world: performing underwater. Although traditional instruments would be destroyed in these conditions and most musicians wouldn’t be able to hold their breath long enough to deliver a song, the Between Music band is far from ordinary.
