Who is Your Favorite Singer/Band in Your Language?

Have I ever shared with you how much I adore the Multilingual Living Facebook page? I can’t say it enough!  The page has a life of its own… I love it!

This week you shared with all of us your favorite singers and bands in your language(s).  What an amazing list!  Here is just a small sampling:

  • Ana: Gianmarco and Alejandro Sanz 🙂
  • Caitlin: J’adore Louise Attaque! 🙂
  • Haley: Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole in Hawaiian or English, especially this song,
  • Berat: Rammstein(Germany) The Prodigy(United Kingdom) Barış Manço(Turkey)
  • Mary Kay: Definitely Salif Keita, Ali Farka Toure and Rokia Traore for French/Bambara, and Toumani Diabate for traditional Kora music from Mali.
  • Melissa: I love Lila Downs, who sings in all our languages, English, Spanish and Mixteco!
  • Daina: Prātu Vētra, also known as Brainstorm, is a pretty good Latvian rock/alternative band, and they do some songs in English, too. But my favorite is Iļģi, which does this really great post-folk music.
  • Elke: That’s changing weekly ;o Émilie Simon – France and Seeed – Germany

This is just a small sampling!  Check out the full list in the October 25th post on the Multilingual Living Facebook page and add your own!!  While there, please click on the LIKE button if you like what you see!  Each time you LIKE us, we get a big goofy grin!

Bilingual: Life and Reality – Extracts

It has been such an delight to be able to work with Prof. Grosjean these past years.  He was a vocal supporter right from the beginning of Multilingual Living Magazine and has never wavered in his positive encouragement!  Thank you Prof. Grosjean!

We are honored to have been given the unique opportunity at Multilingual Living to publish eight extracts from Prof. Grosjean’s book, Bilingual: Life and Reality!  Did you know that it has been nominated for the Edward Sapir Book Prize 2010?

We have published two extracts so far:

Hope you will take a moment to read those wonderful bits of information about Prof. Grosjean and to prepare yourself for even more to come!
