Footage, Narration... but what music? Romanian Castle b-roll

I'm in the middle of a project and I've just completed recording the narration. She sounds great, but my original choices of either Classical or Thievery Corporation-esque background music seem out of place when hearing them paired with her voice.

I've been messing with it for so long now, nothing seems right. I'll start fresh on it tomorrow after a break, but does anyone here have suggestions that come to mind when watching the sample clip below? It's for a small presentation about a village and castle in Romania. They did not want to use traditional Romanian music, but offered no alternate suggestions - as usual!

Is this more or less the final edit and script or is it pieces run together? The continuity of the narration is odd because it seems to jump from subject to subject: tourists then queen then architecture then econ. development. It's hard to know how to link these together with one style or piece of music.

This was just a few random pieces run together as I don't have anything done in order yet.

I usually edit by putting the video to existing narration/music, a hard habit for me to break.

I thought so, and I understand what you mean . . . music always gives me some of my best ideaas about the flow/mood of a piece. It's a tough one, and nothing comes to mind a the moment, but I'll think about it.

It sounds pleasant. What is it? The background postcard graphic had me cracking up!
