    I heartily wish, that the weather improves in your part of the world (winter is near), so no power shutoffs anymore. It must be very annoying, but at least the administration is taking care of your security and wellbeing.

    I found BombayStreet 77 slightly amusing. I am not used to associate the so burgeous Swiss with music bands. Of course, this is a prejudice.

    This one you certainly know, but I didn´t know the band was German:

    Thank you... We may get some rain next week and now have a generator to power our water pump, lights, and fridge/deep freeze, etc.

    Scorpions ! Yes, I still listen to their music often; have been a big fan siince the early 80's... and they still rock on. My daughter fell in love with this Scorpions song back in the day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4RjJKxsamQ

    Changing gears, from the Summer of love (1967)... (well, that's how I always think of it): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiMCTjO_dHI

    and the immortal Hair https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt_yKPNORLM

    The Cowsills (Pop royalty to my mind):
    The Cowsills are an American singing group from Newport, Rhode Island, six siblings noted for performing professionally and singing harmonies at an early age, later with their mother. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cowsills

    Interesting Scorpions song, I remember it somehow.

    Enjoyed The Cowsills Video, very funny, very good. Had never heard of them. Now, of course you remember the other Hair.

    Do you like this one (Udo Lindenberg)? For German Rock fans he is a legend, still on tours with his 73 years:

    Easy to listen to, enjoyed Udo's music very much. There was a note that this was his only English LP "(er) hat nur eine LP in englischer Sprache aufgenommen" (this album from 1971)... too bad. Noteworthy to me that he has worked with Eric Burdon, and other notables. It's a shame his voice has diminished somewhat, but his Facebook page has several concert dates set for 2020... https://www.facebook.com/UdoLindenberg/

    Mamonas Assassinas (1-set of brothers included in the band):
    Mamonas Assassinas was a satirical Brazilian rock band. Their lyrics, music and live performances were as famous as their tragic end: on March 2, 1996, the plane in which they were flying crashed into the Cantareira mountain range, near Săo Paulo, causing the death of all the band members... band member Julio Rasec told reporters he'd had a nightmare the previous evening about the plane crashing - but laughed it off. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mamonas_Assassinas

    If you like Udo´s music maybe you'll enjoy his performance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67tLOd1uM8Y in the German version of
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgnClrx8N2k.

    Of course I remember the Mamonas Assassinas and their tragic accident.They were so very young and their irreverence was something quite uncommon at the time. One cult song was My yellow Brasilia : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DO0Uq6aET_A. You can imagine the lyrics, but I couldn´t resist including this iconic song about the girl with the wonderful hair and the guitar like body, which every one sung at the time.

    Udo in 1979... so young... I like his Teufel version besser (wrestlers aside).

    Mamonas Assassinas: (lol) Interesting mix of music within the piece.

    Orbital:
    Orbital are an English electronic dance music duo from Sevenoaks, Kent, England, consisting of brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orbital_(band)

    Lol!Your German is improving!

    Enjoyed the electronic dance video, specially watching it in 3D. The music sounded familiar, probably used also as background music.

    I'm not very familiar with electronic dance music but here a Brazilian sample:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFuF6F0e5EQ

    Enjoyed the upbeat electronica MSX CLUB 90s

    The street dance was also fun; a nice mix of music/beats.

    Fabulous video about the evolution of dance. The different rhythms were very well presented.

    Sweden was the last country I would associate with electronic music, interesting video.

    A bit about Brazilian dance rhythms:https://theculturetrip.com/south-ame...ld-know-about/

    A presentation of some dances:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTya8Z7Onbo

    And here dances from A to Z. A lot of them are new to me:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrWFbTM68dY

    The first video you shared depicts hip movements similar to the more frenetic Polynesian dances.

    The Samba basic step is mesmerizing in its simplicity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMsRzvei_AI... to think women are recommended to wear high heels!

    The Jongo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqedt7qcTaE

    Carioca Funk moves (and various offshoots of Funk dance) are similar to pop music video dance nowadays in the USA.

    Bumba Meu Boi is interesting in its pageantry costumes and seemingly modern dance moves... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwbubICABPE

    Forró... love this dance; saw some of these moves at my grandson's wedding by the younger crowd... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c33sqgUUJKg (at a Stuttgart festival)

    Carimbó... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1iuXwQft8I... simple, elegant, and colorful.

    Capoeira... I've seen these martial arts moves depicted on the telly and movies... many elements are also used in Jamaican & African martial arts.

    Lundu... like a step/tap dance in one form and a graceful community dance in another: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erQi9lUIMHM... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRyU4uNRR1A

    Baiăo (rhythm & beat)... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVP74d4QiEg... and a playful dance with many recognizable movements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeZ0B36sy1c

    Xote... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYR_u7rgQAg... this version very sensual and playful.

    re: "A presentation of some dances"... a joyful celebration of styles (football included).

    re: A-Z... many I didn't recognize either.

    ... and lastly some Eastern influence elegance:
