Cirque Du Soleil - Saltimbanco [1992] & Putumayo: CUBA [1999]

This is a bit of a gem for you. My womanfriend who is to remain forever nameless, asked me why I never listened to her CDs. Of course the answer was that I was obsessed with collecting and listening to MP3s having almost forgotten about CDs in general. Well she got this one and told me I might be pleasantly surprised. Hmm...

I already covered the American Indian New Age Bollocks right so don't worry, it isn't that kind of music but some of it might be mistakenly termed 'new age' though it would be wrong. This album is the soundtrack to a live Circus/show which they put on in theatres throughout the world.!
It is a stunning collection of uplifting and relaxing melodies. Some are almost operatic whilst others are electric guitar and a fusion of ambience with rock, if you like.
I am glad I listened to this and couldn't wait to send it to you here.
Don't miss the chance to hear something that stands out amongst the generic crap called music these days.
I wont beg for comments but fucking know what? I like talking, debating etc and it would be good to hear what you think of this album.
Oh and I'd love to go see the show in theatres. Have a look at the Cirque Du Soleil website and have a look. There is a short film clip there that gives you an idea of what their show is about. It is circus but very contemporary art, with the music and acrobatics and the stunning reviews they get, I am looking out for when they are next in the UK.

I really should point out that I know a lot of this album sounds like spyro gyra or whatever their fucking name is, and yes it has synthesizers too! but I didn't say it was my all time favourite album, just that now that I have heard it, I will probably listen to it now and again... If my womanfriend was to play it every day, it would be perfectly inoffensive to me. I might even enjoy it. Definitely.

I trust you will find a track you love, as I have!

I found these direct links to a Putumayo album so, knowing how much people like these I thought I'd post them quickly.
Being direct links, they don't come with the usual tracklist and are not named properly but I'm sure you can work it out yourself.
Just copy and paste the names from the page and rename them manually...

I downloaded the circ album but I am only able to extract tracks 1, 2 and 3. Halfway through track 4 winrar fails with a password error. Not sure how that is possible, since I can get three of the files out without problem. But, there you have it. Thanks though, for the effot on that and all the others.

@jeff...I tested the files and they are fine and working. All I can say is...make sure you have ALL PARTS of the rar files in the same directory, then open the lowest numbered part, then extract. You only need to type the password one time when opening the rar file:
If you have an error it might well say its password related but most times this isn't correct. Higher chance is that the file has become corrupted somewhere in downloading,(re-download) or you are using a MAC(get a PC!..hehe)

@ Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)
I just tested those Putumayo links and they are working.
I am not hosting them so if they stop working then that is life Im afraid. that is why you must be fast when you want some files that are hosted on some anonymous those are. Anyway maybe they stopped working for a while. they are working right now so GO!
