The following presents contemporary artists and figures of note, an antidote to the perception that everything current is decadent.
They convey the spirit of various European ethno-cultures. This is the civilization and peoples I am part of, love, defend, and steward in this current time of crisis.

Microtonal/Harmonic Series Guitar
The following two pieces of music performed on guitar give a possible glimpse into how music was heard in medieval Europe, prior to when equal temperament tuning became more widespread in the mid 18th century.

Thus, the pieces may sound strange and off-tune to many modern listeners. Microtones are used to this day in Eastern music scales (i.e. on a sitar).
I find the two pieces below are more proper compositions as compared to many other contemporary microtonal works (which often stay stuck in the realm of experimental music) and hear an otherworldly beauty in these:
