An example is 'drinking song' on the album Introducing Hanggai. Hanggai is a mongolian folk revival group from Beijing. Or 'Whiskey Soda' by Bembeya Jazz on the compilation The Rough Guide to West African Gold. Many other drinking songs can be found on WMN blues compilations such as on Bessie Smith's songs 'Gimme A Pigfoot And A Bottle Of Beer' or 'Me And My Gin' on The Rough Guide to Blues Legends: Bessie Smith . We are not short of drinking songs on Irish music albums either, eg 'Beer Belly Dancing' on the album Six Days In Down by Bob Brozman, John McSherry and Dónal O’Connor.
Below, an introduction and live performance of the song 'Beer Belly Dancing' by Bob Brozman, John McSherry and Dónal O’Connor at Cafe Oto in London 2010.
We look forward to your suggestions!
