Silk Road: Songs Along The Road and Times

That afternoon, early in this month, I visited Disc Tara – a music shop which sells CD’s and DVD’s. I planned to look for an audio CD, a exclusive one perhaps for this trimester.

I was entering the shop, and the salesgirl kindly asking me what kind of music or movie that I was looking for. I asked her if she (her shop) has collections for Andrea Bocelli, for a moment she stand still – maybe half of shocked that someone asked straight for that tenor’s collections (since there is no much people in this city even know that Bocelli’s name were exist).

But maybe a reflex as a salesgirl, she quickly lead and showed me where Bocelli’s collection were. Yet there is no other costumer that time than me. She maybe has some interest for my interest, ha ha, I did got nervous just looking for the right CD in front of me.

Than I didn’t found the one I was looking for. I asked her what were the last Bocelli’s on the market, and she said about the album for last Christmas, now she mentioned it – I remembered that was the last Bocelli’s activities for house last year. Again I asked her if she ever see an album with a tract entitled “Bridge Over Troubled Water”? – Well, I’m not sure if a house were released that tract into an album, since I know only available to download via iTunes to support American Red Cross for Haiti earthquake victims.

Than my eyes searched for others that may …, hmm…, I was seeing, an interesting title, “Silk Song Along The Road and Times” by The Vienna Boy’s Choir. I never has Vienna Boy’s Choir’s before. I’ll give a try I thought.

So I bought the audio CD which released on 2008 for IDR 180.000,- Well, it is the price for a original classical type album.

The album is contained 25 tracks, including… (information from cduniverse.com)

    1. Wigati,

      Memangnya foto profil saya “ngomong” apa? 😀
      Ngga rela sih sebenarnya pas harus bayar segitu, tapi lebih ga rela lagi jadi pembajak karya seni 🙂

    1. Pak Aldy,

      Waduh…, maaf Pak, tidak bermaksud menyindir, hanya sedikit menampar ringan, he he 😀
      Saya tidak terlalu sering mendengarkan musik, jadinya ga perlu berburu banyak kopi original yang membebankan kantong. Toh saya tidak tertarik dengan musik populer yang mesti update sepanjang waktu 😉

    Lumayan mahal ya CD ori dari luar? Dari judulnya saya tadi mengira itu Silk Road-nya Kitaro. Saya senang dengar musik klasik: Favorit saya Kitaro, Miracle dan Vanessa Mae. Nightingale dari Yanni juga bagus, he he…

    1. budiastawa,

      Bukan kepingan dari luar kok, memang yang edisi khusus dipasarkan di Indonesia, namun mungkin jumlahnya terbatas – karena konsumennya juga tidak banyak. Kalau harga yang dalam deretan musik klasik memang segituan deh, itu termasuk murah 🙂
      Saya tidak begitu suka Kitaro dan Vanessa Mae, mungkin karena klasiknya adalah klasik kontemporer kali ya… 😕 Jadi agak berat didengarkan, he he…

    Mungkin lirik lagunya serupa tapi tidak sama dengan “Sepanjang Jalan Kenangan”, yang pernah populer tahun 1980-an, dan sampai saat ini menjadi lagu klasik di jajaran musik pop Indonesia.

    1. TuSuda,

      Kalau “Sepanjang Jalan Kenangan” kan lagu cinta, modul lagu pop nostalgia. Kalau “Silk Road” kumpulan dari lagu religi, lagu rakyat, hymne, mars, yang ada di sepanjang jalur sutera.
      L’homme arme misalnya adalah lagu mars kepahlawanan dari Prancis, Jog.wa adalah lagu bhajan (kidung suci) dari India, Sus Xatin adalah lagu rakyat yang digunakan masyarakat Uzbekistan untuk memanggil hujan, Haq Ali Maula adalah lagu religi Muslim yang terinspirasi dari Kalifah ke-4, Veni creator spiritus adalah kidung kudus gereja-gereja Eropa dari era abad pertengahan – bahkan masih digunakan sampai saat ini semisal saat menyambut Paus.

      Jadi album ini seolah-olah mengajak seseorang untuk mengikuti jejak menelusuri jalur sutra dan menengok setiap budaya dan inspirasi yang ada di sepanjang perjalan dari berbagai agama, peradaban dan latar belakang dalam sebuah kemanusiaan yang utuh 🙂

        Untuk kumpulan lagu rohani, saya hanya punya kaset bhajan tertentu dari kelompok spiritual SSG dan ISKCON yang dibeli waktu cuti ke Bali. Kalau begitu boleh juga ya, bila berkenan dapat satu salinannya buat dikoleksi dan didengerin keindahan melodinya. He..he..sory ya jadi ngerepotin.
