Sp for bass, Mina for percussion, Angel for violin also joined and started the band. They began performing from small cafes, streets of Insa-Dong and Daehakro; people heard about their music from mouth to mouth, and eventually Orgeltanz had a chance to perform for Seoul Fringe Festival, Jeonju International Film Festival, Save Tibet Festival and Grand Mint Festival. Members came and went as they were travelling and now have settled with 마르까 마르꼬(accordion, vocal), 엔젤(violin), 미옹(acoustic guitar), 슝구리(acoustic guitar, percussion), 하민(percussion, vocal), 베쑤뎅(bass). Also, Eshe, the belly dancer who fell in love with Orgeltanz through watching their videos on youtube, joined as well so that they have finally created a stage for both dance and the music, just like their name presents. From the Cradle to the Grave Orgeltanz’s music is touched with all branches of world music. From the sorrowful melody of vagabond gypsies and passionate tango rhythms to the hints of meditating bossa nova, Orgeltanz’s music box contains all the folk songs for the people of the world.
And these melodies have been reborn through the imagination of the members and put into their debut album, [From the Cradle to the Grave]. All the songs embody the life of the people and sympathize with their spirits. Starting with the intro “Orgeltanz,” assuming the melodies of Habanera by Carmen, the album proceeds with “Sokdak Sokdak” about our secrets that everybody knows, “A Way to Get Free Champagne” talking about the beggar who wants to get free champagne with an attractive rhythm, “Mot” with the emotional melody as well as a narrative story, “Marca’s Manteau,” Orgeltanz-esque fantastic animation, reminding people of the Japanese animation, Red Riding Hood Chacha, “MangSang” that expands a scene from the Arabian Night with cheerful rhythms of Darbuka, “Hava Nagila,” an Israeli folk song interpreted in the Orgeltanz way, and the “Despedida” for the grand good bye of the album. Orgeltanz’s debut album [From the Cradle to the Grave] wanders around the music from all around the world and plays the all the emotions that have existed with us. www.orgeltanz.wo.to club.cyworld.com/orgeltanz www.myspace.com/orgeltanz www.myspace.com/electricmuse Read more on Last.fm.
