Ska and Stars

I mostly want Dave to hear this, but since we're not the only ones who can appreciate the sheer awesomeness of a Romanian gypsy brass band fused with ska beats, I present it for you all:

Mahalageasca (Bucovina Dub) — Mahala Raï Banda vs. Shantel
(Buy this version or one of the original tracks)

While I’m at it, let me also share a piece of genius that Dave sent my way. This is originally from here, but the links are dead now, so here's a copy for you. It's a marima-rrific reworking of my favorite bit of music ever written by John WIlliams:

The Asteroid Field — The Evil Genius Orchestra
(Buy the album or the original)

While hunting down some more info on the Evil Genius Orchestra, I stumbled across other blog post about Star Wars covers. Enjoy!

1) david z.: That's fantastic! You get extra points for finding the Evil Genius version of the Imperial March, which may end up as my cell-phone ringtone... although as I type this with the trombone from Mahalageasca still running through my head, I think I might use the riff from "Gopher Rodeo" instead. We miss you, Vito Incognito. (Jun 4, 2007 5:17 PM)
