Music, music, music...

We've a date at our local theater tonight to see Tumbao Bravo - a 7-piece group who play Cuban Jazz, with the rhythms of mambo, cha cha cha, rumba, bolero, pachanga etc. Not much scope for astrology blogging there then. Or is there? Reading the blurb about Tumbao Bravo got me thinking about different musical genres and how their qualities are reflected in signs of the zodiac. Here's what I've come up with, and why:

Classical ~~ Capricorn & Virgo - tradition, rigid structure, meticulous performance

Jazz ~~~ Aries & Aquarius - energetic, spontaneous, modern, unpredictable

Easy Listening ~~~ Libra & Pisces - undemanding, pleasant, non-controversial, dreamy

Country ~~~ Taurus & Cancer - old fashioned, earthy, conservative, homely

Folk & Bluegrass~~~ Cancer, Capricorn & Aquarius - sensitive, homely, traditional and often socially aware

Rock~~~ Aries & Scorpio - energetic, can be passionate and/or menacing

Pop ~~~ Gemini & Aquarius - an eclectic mix of themes all communicating to "the people" - all the people

Opera & Stage ~~Leo, Sagittarius - dramatic, exaggerated,

Soul & Blues~~~Pisces, Scorpio - deep, powerful and passionate

Latin ~~~ Scorpio & Sagittarus - passionate and "foreign"

Big Band & Swing ~~~ Aries and Sagittarius - energetic, big, happy sound.

Religious/Sacred ~~~ Sagittarius, Pisces & Capricorn - spiritual, devout, traditional

Very confining but I get what you mean, though most of us spread all around the astrosphere.
I know I do.

WWW~~~ No - I wasn't meaning that these refer to listeners' Sun signs, but that the different music styles carry qualities of the 12 zodiac signs.

It might be that if particular signs in a natal chart are strongly emphasised, that person might gravitate towards a musc style with similar qualities....that's one way of looking at it, but not really the one I intended. :-)

Ah, now I get it, slow on the uptake sometimes ;^)Thanks!
I hope you enjoyed the concert and a commentator on CBC the other day said that Obama may open dialogue with Cuba and the benefit to the US will be more of those glorious Cuban musicians touring.

Okay, you've totally lost me.

But then, that's not unusual. ;-)

WWW ~~ Glad you saw the light ;-)
LOL! Yes we enjoyed the Cuban Jazz band very much - upbeat, happy, confident music played by multi-talented musicians. :-)

RJ - Lost you? Well, if you will insist on wandering off during lessons, what do you expect?
Extra homework for you my lad!
