While sorting out the files on my hard drive, I came across an MP3 of a clip of absolutely beautiful music. I suspect that I might have recorded it myself at some point - either from my phone, or more likely via a WAV recorder before encoding it to MP3. Unfortunately I have no memory of having done so, so can not recall the source.

The clip is mainly instrumental: however it contains some singing. I can't identify the language, but it sounds vaguely Celtic.

Whatever this music is, I want to identify it and find the source. I tried SoundHound and Shazam, to no avail. Other internet sites - where you upload the clip - also matched no known tracks.

I then turned to WatZatSong for some crowdsourcing. Sadly, nobody could identify it - although it was mentioned that the style was similar to Two Steps From Hell - and I agree it's similar, but the clip does not match anything I have heard from them.

So - this is my last-ditch attempt at crowdsourcing. Could anyone please help? The only other things I can say is that the date the MP3 was created on my hard drive is 29/01/2017 - so the music must have existed prior to that; and that right at the end of the clip, it is cut short with what sounds like "We interrupt.." This suggests that it was recorded from a programme that was somehow interrupted. However what form that programme might have taken is anyone's guess.

    To me it doesn't sound like a specific language, rather like singing vocals only. Could this be music from a sports event? Ice dancing or figure skating perhaps?

  • Sounds like the sort of thing from a car advert to me.
