CHRISTMAS DAY …. PUERTO RICAN MUSIC

There truly are no Christmas celebrations like those in Puerto Rico. It doesn’t matter if you live on our lovely island or in the diaspora … anywhere/everywhere in the world.

Those Puerto Rican traditions we grew up with are never forgotten!

This is our typical Christmas music played by a ‘cuatro’ virtuoso.

For any Puerto Rican who stops by and for any other friend who enjoy music!

FELIZ NAVIDAD!!

The Puerto Rican cuatro is the national instrument of Puerto Rico. It belongs to the lute family of string instruments, and is guitar-like in function, but with a shape closer to that of the violin. The word cuatro means “four”, which was the total number of strings of the earliest Puerto Rican instrument known by the cuatro name.

The current cuatro has ten strings in five courses, tuned, in fourths, from low to high B3 B2♦E4 E3♦A3 A3♦D4 D4♦G4 G4 (note that the bottom two pairs are in octaves, while the top three pairs are tuned in unison), and a scale length of 500-520 millimetres.

The cuatro is the most familiar of the three instruments which make up the Puerto Rican jíbaro orchestra (the cuatro, the tiple and the bordonúa).

CAT SCHOOL

This is true. All cat characters in the movie did go to ‘cat school’ in preparation for their role.

Leave it to James Corden to present a sample of that ‘training’.

==================================

“Every single person you see in the film underwent Cat School,” Sarah Dowling tells Rolling Stone. School entailed a few hours per day of lessons about basic cat anatomy and movement training, all overseen by a sphinx cat named Paname, the charge of French hip-hop musicians Les Twins, who also appear in the film.

Despite being the professor of Cat School, Dowling is not a feline expert; she’s a choreographer, performer and movement director who had previously worked on films such as 2018’s Mary Queen of Scots, starring Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. Director Tom Hooper and Cats’ producers approached her to teach the film’s actors how to move, and she worked to create a movement language based on how cats behave.

In preparation for their roles in the new ‘Cats‘ film, director Tom Hooper hosts a workshop with some core members of the cast. Watch as Tom and head cat James Corden train Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Rebel Wilson and Francesca Hayward, and evaluate which one will take home Best In Show.

CATS, the Musical …. “🎼 by Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber …. Finally a Movie 🎼 …. “!!

CATS, THE MOVIE … WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO DECODE IT

The movie has finally come out!! After an extremely successful run in Broadway, the awesome musical comes to film.

I’ve always loved the music! It’s a ‘memory’ in my brain’s hard drive.

Yet, the plot? Kinda hard to follow.

Haven’t seen the movie yet but I soon will.

I found this clip this morning and after listening to Jennifer Hudson explain it on ‘The Stephen Colbert Show‘, it makes more sense now!

Merry Christmas!

Cats is a sung-through musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber based on the 1939 poetry collection Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot. It tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make the “Jellicle choice“, deciding which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life. The musical includes the well-known song “Memory” as sung by Grizabella. As of 2019, Cats remains the fourth-longest-running Broadway show and the sixth-longest-running West End show.

Lloyd Webber began setting Eliot’s poems to music in 1977 and the compositions were first presented as a song cycle in 1980.

The bizarre story, based on a book of poems by T. S. Eliot, revolves around a tribe of cats called Jellicles, which are competing in a singing competition so they can die and be reborn as a better version of themselves. A new theatrical interpretation of the classic musical features an A-List cast, including Jennifer Hudson, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, James Corden, Ian McKellen, Idris Elba and Taylor Swift.

We break down the plot and the characters to help explain why these cats are singing and dancing in the first place, and what it all means.

Rollin Christmas …. “🎄 The World of Round Animals Celebrate Joy and …. Mishap? 🎄 …. “!!

ON CHRISTMAS DAY 2019

A few years ago, I found this funny clip celebrating Christmas.

I’d like to share it again with the information about its creation and the idea and how this funny, short clip became a Christmas classic.

Enjoy!

Merry Christmas to one and all!

If all animals became round overnight, would their daily life still run that smoothly?

This was the question we were dealing with whilst working on the concept for the world of “Rollin’ Wild”, which started life as a series of four clips created at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in 2012.

When we presented the clips the reaction was overwhelming and they seemed to have immediately touched the audiences’ hearts. We realized then that four clips wouldn’t be enough and that the world was ready for many more spherical animals. With that aim, we (Kyra Buschor and Constantin Paeplow) founded a small company called Flying Stone. At the moment we are working hard to extend the world of Rollin’ Wild and we hope that we will soon be able to present you with more round animals.

Thank you all for your support and patience – watch this space for the next installment in Rollin’ Wild!
