Ogaitu / Ogaitu´s Songs / "Ancient folk"

Soft melody

The soft voice is very apt to communicate relax and a romantic melody too. I think that you have more ability that in this song, where the guitar is too low to listen, but well played however.

Small is good to

I love this song, perfectly goes well with a large glass of cold beer. Beautiful harmonies and sweet guitars. Feels like a stripped down radiohead song that could be so huge. Every good song can be played quietly on an acoustic, maybe this is best as is or perhaps huge would be good. Love it anyway, great work amigo !

Excelente sonido

excelente trabajo, inspira paz y tranquilidad. me gusta la armonia que ejecutas, y la melodia de la voz. tienes mas material? videos? felicitaciones, tienes un buen material. mucho exito

Keeping the spirit of music alive

Thank you for the opportunity to give you a review. Your profile picture is awesome! Great potential here for the artist. What's needed is a better recording production to enhance the song and its instrument the guitar. I strongly recommend a metronome (while recording) to improve the timing and overall rhythm for the vocalist.

great guitar

wow! What cool guitar playing- reminds me of Flamenco!!! It is very dreamy and soulful. Grains of sandy storms is such a visual line and you can feel the emotion of the song so easily with the music and lyrics


Canción extraña por la mezcla de esa guitarra con sonido cien por cien ibérico, si la cantara en castellano se parecería un poco al flamenco, pero cantado en inglés queda muy rara. En definitiva buen sonido, buena interpretación y buena música como no puede ser menos viniendo de un país vecino al mio y al que en muchas cosas nos parecemos. Viva Portugal, su gente y sus músicos. Saludos desde Cádiz.

In MY Opinion

Greetings, Thank you for choosing me to review your work, I count it an honor to be included in such a task. My hat is off to you and anyone willing to step out and share their gift, talent and love of music to the public. Be it a musician, singer, song writer, actor and so-on. I myself, via 40 some years of experience in the fields, on the road, in the studio, radio, TV, video, and management, consider myself to be a seasoned musician, singer, song writer, studio-sound tech/engineer/ owner/operator, stage manager, find it sometimes hard/difficult and perhaps not even fair to sit in a seat, voicing My Opinion concerning another's creative efforts. Especially in certain genres of music I am not all that familiar with concerning very important elements that make up and meet the required standards to justify the various levels of ratings and grades. So, in saying ALL that, I will limit myself to MY Opinion concerning the quality of the work according to My ears, and the standards I have been familiarized with thru-out the years. I hold to the old - saying " Beauty Is In The EAR of The Beholder ... LOL. The sound quality of the recording over-all is very crisp and bright and clear, I really enjoyed the soft guitar work. Vocals are smooth and natural,. The mix levels let me know who was still in charge of this song. Very easy to sit back and listen to. Enjoyed the entire song. I mean no offense in any part, I myself take all feedback and use it as a tool toward my next project. I pray you feel the same way. Either way, I say to you, keep doing what you do, keep kicking and enjoying what you do. I tell folks all the time for many years. When it stops being FUN, then it's time to stop, and stand back and think about what we are doing, why we are doing it, how we are doing it, what we and others are getting out it. Is it what we want, and how we want it. IF NOT. what are willing to do from there? Thank you again for asking MY OPINION. Johnny


Toda una intención de proponer un tema muy original y lleno de calidad. Sin muchos arreglos más que una buena guitarra tocada con delicadeza y calidad artística, sin más que una voz que también aporta naturalidad y una elegancia llena de emoción. Sin más que una melodía muy hermosa y que agradece ser escuchada varias veces, sin más lo consigue todo. Una agradable sorpresa un manjar para los sentidos.

Smooth Recording

Just listen to a folk ballad like this, pure and simple recorded, what is very seldom today. Virtuously picked melodies on a classic-guitar and just the vocals from Ogaitu make this wonderful composition complete. The lyrics come from the heart and clarifies us about the mysteries of ancient folk. Ambitious composition without using any other instrumentation is a quintessence of poetic songwriting and folk from a very talented musican. Overall great work and originally. Listen to the song and I´m sure you will like to add it. Let others know your recommendation.

Ancient Folk reviewed by an ancient folkie

A nice easy feeling about this that I like. I like the fact that you took the time to publish the lyrics. I had no chance understanding them off the audio. I've written the odd two chord song myself and feel that the lyrical content is very important when there isn't much else going on. You obviously like to play with words so keep it up. It will make you happy. You might also like to get an audio editing program like Audacity (it's free) and clean up the recording. That big crunch at the end is not doing you any favours and is easily eliminated with the right tools. The big thing is to not rush to the recorder at the end but wait a moment or two. Having a little silence at the end makes it really east to chop off the sound of you grabbing the recorder and fumbling for the correct button to stop everything. I wanted to say something about the title but I don't want you to get the idea that I want you to change it. In some ways it is a little confusing especially to those of us who are used to seeing the word 'folk' as a pronoun to the word 'music' but on balance that is probably a good thing. It is a good enough summary of what the song is about. That will do.


The song wake up a lot of feelings on me, you may wonder what kind of feelings!!? yeah, we humans live, smile, love, fuck, work, dreams, play music, give a fuck about what others thinks about us, respect nature and fight for what we think or believe, this is those feelings what i feel when a listen it..peace, love to our selfs, love and respect for others and for our mother nature

Ancient Folk

I really like this haunting folk song with guitar and vocals. Your guitar playing really adds texture to the tone of this song. The lyrics are clear and add depth to this memorable folk tune. Well done!

Review of ancient folk

Another tune by Ogaitu called Ancient folk, lots of twangy guitar and strumming of a unique sounding of strings, it may be just be what you are listening for , it is packaged with a story and a blend of vocals bringing you a message , I will not debate weather it’s ancient folk or not, if Ogaitu says its ancient folk who am I to disagree, it’s different it’s unique and it will get your attention.! Give it a listen and let Mr. Ogaitu know what you think, it’s a new experience for me ? I have reviewed a couple of more of his tunes and they were pleasant to the ear ! Thanks for the opportunity to give it a shot and best of everything to you in music! I am not an expert in that genre , although I do have several songs that have been up there pretty high in charts in folk and folk rock for a number of weeks and Mr. Ogaitu has a different style than mine and I certainly wish him success! peace!
