I am not a dance music person. The reason is fairly simple: I don’t dance. That being said occasionally I come across a song that strikes me as being “dance music” that I think makes for good, stationary listening.
Jungle Drum – by Emilana Torrini is one of these songs. I am not sure what she considers her music to be but for me this is an absolute dance song. It is quirky, fun and upbeat. It is impossible to listen to this without tapping your toe or bobbing your head. Often I engage in my only form of dancing, chair dancing, while I listen to this song.
A few years ago it was used in a promotional video for Iceland that is a perfect marriage of music and images. If you did not have the urge to visit Iceland I think you just might after watching this video.
