My son is doing a karate kata for a talent show and would like to put it to music. Does anyone have any suggestions for a powerful music selection that would work with karate moves?

I personally would go with some traditional Japanese, or asian in general, though maybe not anything Thai though. Their musics a little... hard to do anything that needs timing. Or if there is a rhythm at all to it it's lost on me. Maybe try looking up kodo drums... I have a few tracks of that stuff and I like most of it. Failing that you could always go for anime tunes. If you need a place to track them down try www.gendou.com they've got well mostly everything aside from a few shows that just started airing int he last two weeks... erm... airing in Japan that is. If you're worried about the lyrics being non-english just try to find karaoke versions.

Thanks for the link. I think the Asian sound would be best too! Here's a plus for you!

How about the theme from the movie "The Good,the Bsd, and the Ugly?

Many years ago, I did one to the music from 2001: A space odyssey. It was very dramatic and was well received.

Try upbeat music from anime shows.. rock seems to go well with Katas that I have watched before. Though they really put timing with the moves and the beats from music they choose. Then, try those background musics they use from martial arts movies with scenes of the protgonists in training. Since its audio-visual performance, its either the kata goes along with the music or the music goes along with the kata.
