Learning Tangaroa

Postby silark » Tue 14 Dec 2010 9:42 pm

I am currently memorizing a song in the maori language called Tangaroa. I'm just doing it for the fun of it, and also I find the maori language intriguing. It seems to be a very 'emotional' language especially in the songs. Very powerful and full of passion. :twisted:

What do emotional, powerful and passionate mean for a language? I'm sure with proper vocals and a strong message any song, sung in any language, would sound powerful and passionate. Yes?

Oh u r certainly correct! I believe that as well. Culture of course has a large influence on a language in how it's "executed"?

It seems like sometimes certain phonetics in a language seem more apt to be used with more expression.
