I wish you make a second series of this. There is so much more music in the world, like the joik of the Sami people, Mongolian throatsinging and Native American healing chants for example. Also for me personally but not completely in line with the documentairy, here in Iceland singing is absolutely a cultural thing that anyone involves in. At every event you will see mostly men gather together singing hymns that go back to the settlement time of Iceland. Most women enjoy being in a choir. Old Icelandic songs, sometimes phrases from the sagas. And its not just for the old men, youth also sings along. I just love it to see how it brings people together and the joy it brings together with a deep pride for the culture and history. Its not just them singing but it was passed on unchanged from EVERY generation that was before them. I had the pleasure of joining such a valley sing along evening, and it was highlight of my life. The whole valley of 43 people except 1 who was sick was present. From 1 to 102 years old, and a 90+ guy played the piano with such pleasure, everybody in the attic, the lady unable to walk was gently carried up the stairs, cozy but place for all. And again many of these 900 year old songs together with modern songs. Music really connects people. Moments like this are for me considered the Great Song, because it brings everybody right back to the core, the present moment. It touches the soul in a way only music can.
