    I don't know if it trumps Baba Yetu for me, but it segues nicely into it to restart the song cycle. Everything on that album is good though. My other favourite is Sukla-Krsne. That whole section in the final part just sends shivers up my spine every time.

    Not related to GS, but did anyone ever found out what the music of the Apadana wonder construction is? I looked for ages but couldn't find anything until now.

    I'm digging Hungary's Atomic theme. I cannot wait to hear the rest of the themes.

    The Japanese one (the song after Baba Yetu) in Calling All Dawns sounds like a theme song for an anime. It's fun to listen. Sometimes, I play that song when I play as Hojo Tokimune.

    I did ask Roland Rizzo (the composer of the Wonder Movie music) about it, and he said it was based on some traditional Persian folk music, but he couldn't find a name for me.

    The bold changes in dynamics in "Mado Kara Mieru" can send a chill up your spine, especially after the really bombastic bridge where it suddenly just cuts away to the lead vocalist's delicate vocals...

    I think that it's a bit too slow, but I love the last bit which is really catchy and reminds me of dance music somehow.

    It seems the Hungarian theme is based on a popular folk song, "Hej, Dunáról fúj a szél". It is usually taught in kindergardens and elementary schools, and shares many similarities with other classic folk songs.

    For anyone interested, the lyrics of the most frequent version are as follows (see the translation below):

    "Hej, Dunáról fúj a szél,
    szegény embert mindig ér,
    Dunáról fúj a szél.
    Ha Dunáról nem fújna,
    ilyen hideg sem volna,
    Dunáról fúj a szél.

    Hej, Dunáról fúj a szél,
    feküdj mellém, majd nem ér,
    Dunáról fúj a szél.
    Nem fekszem én kend mellé,
    úgy sem leszek a kendé,
    Dunáról fúj a szél.

    Hej, Jancsika, Jancsika,
    mért nem nőttél nagyobbra,
    Dunáról fúj a szél.
    Nőttél volna nagyobbra,
    lettél volna katona,
    Dunáról fúj a szél."

    English translation:

    "Hey, the wind blows from the Danube
    and it always blows on the poor man
    the wind blows from the Danube.
    It it wouldn't blow from the Danube
    it wouldn't be so cold now
    the wind blows from the Danube.

    Hey, the wind blows from the Danube,
    lie next to me, so it won't reach you
    the wind blows from the Danube.
    I won't lie next to thee
    I won't be yours anyway
    the wind blows from the Danube.

    Hey, Jancsika, Jancsika (Jancsika is similar to the name "Johnny")
    why didn't you grow taller
    the wind blows from the Danube.
    You should have grown taller,
    you could have been a soldier
    the wind blows from the Danube."

    You can listen to an authentic version here:

    I forgot about that album. I liked it too.
    Could we see the song for the Māori in Civ 6, since it's Christopher Tin's work?
    I'm still guessing it'll be "Pōkarekare Ana", but if the rumours are true then we won't have to wait long to find out.

    (BTW, the chant in "Kia Hora te Marino" is also based on a well-known Māori song, called "Hutia te Rito".)

    There is one lyrical track I am looking for that is not on the official soundtrack. It played some time while I was playing Persia as well as Poland during the renaissance. I can't place the language but it sounds indo-iranian. I thought maybe Persia, India or Scythia but none of the themes I found on youtube match. There is both a solo vocal section and a chorus to the song. The cadence is kinda fast.

    Does anyone know what I am talking about? I am not super music literate to describe it much better than that sorry.

    I would really like to know what the song is about. I have the expansion and all DLCs.

    Awesome. It's very dance-y.

    Is it just me or does the Ancient theme sound... messy? Or is it two versions of the theme using two different instruments playing at the same time?

    Also, it's time to ask from which piece did Geoff Knorr base his theme on!

    Cool music again. Didn't like the ancient with 2 instruments playing what seemed different melodies, but I like the medieval one a lot better because it sounds cleaner.
    The industrial one is my favorite but I was very intrigued by the atomic one too, the beat sounded good with the melody.
