CURATION POST 29/03/2021


Hello beautiful people!

@ceparl here

Welcome to the Crossculture's Weekly digest where we bring you up to date with some amazing posts from members across communities of different cultures, focusing on but not limited to bilingual posts.

The Cross culture community, was created by @whatamidoing. It is a community which supports authors who write articles that share the realities of different cultures first hand, as well as our different perspectives and experiences. We look for ways in which cultures can become crisscrossed and enlightening while moving beyond stereotypes associated with certain culture.

The authors whose articles have been chosen for this week are all writing content of high quality, which focus on the Various topics:

All bilingual posts, posts in regional communities or tags, posts related to language or culture or posts in our cross culture community are eligible

Cross culture's weekly bulletin aims to bring to light all authors whose articles would otherwise remain unnoticed and lost in the platform, therefore we tend to reward all authors who create quality posts, giving them a fair chance to establish themselves on the platform.
Howbeit, that's only the half of it!!!
After careful selections, our curators which come from diverse cultures will single out the most outstanding articles among all those curated to create a weekly shout out to the authors of the Top posts of the week.
Therefore, here are this week's awesome authors and their posts.

Let's Rock Japan! With Flutes & Harps & Banjo's?? by @rt395


While the world transitions to more EDM, it seems some of the most popular bands in Japan are kickass metal bands like Band Maid, Love Bites, Baby Metal and Wagakki Band. It's the latter I want to focus on, Wagakki Band, because they incorporate traditional Japanese folk sounds into metal and pop resulting in something very Japanese, but transcending.

Today in history: The Terracotta Army discovered in China by @gooddream


There are some pretty special sites around the world that I have not had the pleasure of seeing yet and this is one of them. It is a particularly amazing one in my mind and given the size of it, it is surprising to me that something like this was actually unknown to the world and the people of China for many many years and it needed to be "discovered" by accident by farmers for the world to even know that it was there. It is located in the hills near Xi'an.

My Plant Of The Week Fifth Edition - A Ti For Two Or Three Or Four By @gems.and.cookies


Hello Hive World. This is the 5th Edition of this personal series called "My Plant of the Week." Each week for the last 4 weeks I feature a plant of choice which may or may not be in my wife's garden. It could be a plant in my office, in a friend's house or something I saw along the way to somewhere. It's a series I hope can keep you informed of the different plants in my place and uses for them, if any, aside from the aesthetics.
