Bel Canto Lyrics

Through the night the dark blue men came far across the starry sea,
From Foreverland to Eternity.
Rushed, rushed, rushed to the hill.
There they would engrave the Oracle up on the hill that
'Oh, we are the resurrected and how we are, we are'.
We are... Rush, rush, rush to the hill.

Bring the children.
Bring their mothers.
Bring the cattle.
Bring the water.

Rush, hurry now, hurry now up the hill.
Now! Far-descending guests,
Let us wander, wander up on the blue mountain.

Bring the babies.
Bring the homeless.
Bring your treasures.
Bring your lovers.

Rush and see it written there that 'how we are, we are'
We are... Rush, rush, rush to the hill.
Rush, rush, rush to the hill.
Do you understand me?
Do you understand me now?

There are many mysteries in the world of contemporary music, but the greatest in my opinion is why Bel Canto has faded into near obscurity. This incredible cut---'Rush'---speaks to my point beautifully. 'Rush' was released in 1998 but sounds as if it could have been released in 2012. There must an audience in Europe and in the U.S. for this kind of truly 'world' music. Drecker and Johansen are still in their 40's and must have more great music in them...if their audience will reach out to them.


One of my fav bands! Hope they release a new album sometime...


Rush - gorgeous, interesting album


Bel Canto still exists with Anneli Drecker and Nils Johansen as permanent members and percussionist Andreas Eriksen as a third member. Both Anneli Drecker and Nils Johansen makes music projects next to keep the Bel Canto; Drecker with frequent solo projects and collaborations with other artists and art institutions (theater / film) and Nils Johansen, through its membership in the group Vajas.

What a terriffic album!! And so underestimated. Listen up peeps!




i dont think that bel canto has faded into obscurity. anneli has been working on her solo stuff and getting good attention for it.

HooVooLoo Bloo

Bel Canto is the Pink Floyd of Scandanavia.  Anneli and her troupe are not getting their fair shake in popular media streams.  How to change this?  Hmm.  You peeps out there know how.  Hep to it!
