Parov Stelar: “Chambermaid Swing”

[contextly_sidebar id=”f763a19b20217a9966011a4b3afa8b61″]

A couple of weeks ago, the site posted the fabulous song and dance routine from the Indian film Gumnaam (the song is Jaan Pehchan, the singer is Mohammad Rafi). That song got a rebirth because a snippet was used in a Heineken commercial.

Chambermaid Swing also gained notoriety through its use in an alcohol ad, this one for Bicardi. The song is performed by  The Parov Stelar Band. According to Wikipedia, Parov Stelar is Marcus Füreder, who also works worldwide as a D.J.

Here are Homesick and Let’s Roll featuring Blaktroniks. I’m not a trained observer, but it seems clear that dance music and folk rhythms both have influenced the band.
