Historical as Neil Young and Celine Dion, and younger like Drake and Justin Bieber.
On many occasions when we listen to music in English there are those who do not know the origin or nationality of the singers. Or British or American we can think a priori, but there are a lot of phenomena that come from other countries: Australia, New Zealand, Canada … That’s why this time, we go with 10 Canadian artists and groups , who are on the other hand so current.
We started with one of the great dinosaurs of music of the last 50 years, with Neil Young . A true lover of his work, it is difficult to keep up with his record releases. With classics like “Heart of gold” or “Rockin ‘in the free world”, I always like to vindicate the emotion that Philadelphia transmits, the song that brings the title to Jonathan Demme’s film and with which it ended. He was nominated for an Oscar, but he was taken by another talent like Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets of Philadelphia” for the same film.
In November 2016, 82 years old Leonard Cohen died . Those who in a song value music above all, may take time to appreciate his work. With classics like “First we take Manhattan” and especially the Hallelujah , which sounds even in the churches as “word.”
Bryan Adams. He is a rocker very close to the world of pop, who is also very involved in other artistic aspects such as photography. Very close to the world of cinema with themes of soundtracks such as: “Heaven”, “(Everything I do) I do it for you”, “All for love” (with Rod Stewart and Sting) and “Have you ever really loved a woman? ” Although for the season we are in, immersed in the boreal summer, we will stay this time with Summer of ’69 .
Celine Dion. We are going without a doubt one of the best pop singers in the world, with Celine Dion . With an incredible career that has had to make a break in recent times, for the pain at the loss of her husband René Angélil in 2016. Like her countrymen,My heart will go on for Titanic. Included among the most important Canadians of all time.
Arcade Fire is one of the best groups in the world today. Although his latest album, Everything now (2017) may not be as bright as the previous ones, live we can enjoy a brutal selection of hits “Keep the car running”, “Intervention”, “Ready to start”, and above all ” Wake up “and Sprawl II (Mountains beyond mountains) . A band that if it goes on, can make history in the world of 21st century music.
