Photo Hunt - Music

The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is music. Mercifully this is a no-brainer as I can present some photos I've taken at concerts this year:

This is France-based Iranian singer Darya Dadvar performing at her first ever UK concert back in May

Dame Pandora of french band Dark Sanctuary playing their first ever London concert which, sadly, was their last ever concert


My favourite artist of all time, Robyn Hitchcock performing a benefit concert two weeks ago for medecins sans frontieres.

This is what the artists sound like live . The Robyn song is called Airscape and is one of my all time favourite songs but the Dark Sanctuary and Darya songs are wonderful too

You did a great job with the theme Jams. You must get to concerts a lot. I used to go out for live music a lot but not so much lately. Happy weekend.

Excellent shots for the music theme. I have never managed to take good pictures at concerts, but you did a great job.
Happy weekend.

Glad you all like them!

Musik wird störend oft empfunden / dieweil sie mit Geräusch verbunden. - Music as it's noise-related / is often not appreciated.

Ha ha, Jams. Just could not resist.

YTSL said...

An unusually straightforward take on the theme from you, jams! ;)

jmb said...

I can't believe you took such great photos as those concerts. Excellent job and thanks for adding the sounds too.

Happy weekend to you.

The Economic Voice said...

Jams can you recommend any albums by Mr Hitchcock? I really want to expand my CD collection.

CherryPie said...

Great pictures for the theme :-)

RJ Flamingo said...

Wonderful choices, Jams! The photos are great and the music, even better. :-)

I had a bit more difficult time, and dug way back in my archives.

eastcoastlife said...

I don't attend music concerts and there aren't many in Singapore either.

Happy weekend!

Mine are some of the ones I posted for the "Entertainment" challenge some time ago but they are my all-time favourite music photos.

Please also check out my update from last week's challenge...

I love live music. Beginners, buskers or concerts. They all provide life to the music. Great choice for the theme (as always :) )

Annie said...

What a great musical post. I admire your wide-open taste. Love that black and white jacket too.

Chubskulit Rose said...

Great photos and choice of music!

My Photo Hunt

Unknown said...

I figured you would have some unique artists' photos because you seem to enjoy music and concerts. That's wonderful! Great job.

Like Colin, I think that's a fabulous jacket!

Alice Audrey said...

Great selections. The further they go the more I like them. So different from Jack and Tyler.

ps. I adore the part where she says "I have a better idea."

Rebecca Mecomber said...

All quite interesting. I listened to them all. The Iranian music (I'm familiar with some Middle Eastern music) has a distinctive upwards lilt to it.

I have actually heard of Hitchcock before! (My husband is the music nut-- it was through him).

Happy Photo Hunting! I hope you get a chance to visit my post today at New York Traveler.net. Happy trails!

Daisy said...

How cool that we got to listen, too! That's what I have been missing from this theme.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone!

Jerry said...

The best way to see live music - up close and personal. Far better than those concerts for 70,000!

A. @ A Changing Life said...

I thought you'd find the music theme easier than most. :) Darya Dadvar is fan-tas-tic!

Irene said...

Nice photo and nice videos you're sharing. Thanks for dropping by.

girasoli said...

Love your photos this week. Fun videos also.

Sigur Rós certainly is an interesting band. I really enjoyed the music while sitting next to the castle in Ferrara but am not sure I would play their music regularly.
