Music of Almea?

I'm curious as to what the music would sound like.

For example, for the "sad songs of Lácatur", a Portuguese fado like this one seems to bring that to mind (especially since Portuguese is relatively close to Verdurian phonologically, amplifying the effect):

Other possibilities: gypsy music, rebetiko (with its non-western 9/8 rhythms).

I also seem to be interested in this (seem to be, since it's more to the music theory for me than the actual music of Almea)

I'd like to do one or several songs in Verdurian (Or maybe in Barakhinei, Ismaîn, Kebreni or Xurnese. Or something classical in Cadhinor or Cuêzi. Plenty of ideas here), which might be either a cover of an Earthly song (à la the Simlish covers of real songs from The Sims) or a native song. The problem here is: I can't speak any of the Almean languages (pronounciation won't be a problem, still), let alone make a loose translation or write anything in it :wink: . I suppose I could produce an Almean song using the synthesizer on my laptop. Anyone who wants to help me with the lyrics?

Ps. I'm a male human being. If you had any ideas involving a female singer, you probably have to look for one yourself. :)
