Playing for Change …. “💞🎼 Rasta Children featuring Nattali Rize 🎼💞 …. “!!


~~August 14, 2018~ 

PLAYING FOR CHANGE 

Song Around The World

I started following Playing for Change a few years ago.

I think the work they do and the way they present music from around the world is amazing.

Music is the universal language.

Here’s a new song that I found traversing through the internet today.

I hope you enjoy it!

~RASTA CHILDREN~

One evening, a few years ago in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil, the PFC crew and I were waiting for an 80-year-old cuica player to perform on a Song Around The World.

I remember it seemed to take forever for him to make it down the hill, as he would stop off in every bar along the way for a drink and some conversation. As we waited I looked and saw a Rastaman walking across the street with his acoustic guitar in hand.

I waved to him and he came over to see what we were doing with all our equipment. I told him about Playing For Change and he agreed to play a song for us while we were waiting. The result was an incredible, spontaneous performance of Dennis Brown’s “Rasta Children.”

His voice reminded me of Peter Tosh and he sang with so much soul that we realized this could be an amazing Song Around The World. Just one man and his guitar playing on the street set the tone for this song and we added a worldwide band of roots musicians around him.

“I and I deal with humanity …”

Song Around The World

Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.

The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World.

Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change Band – a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation – a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT 2018

~Angel City Chorale~

Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent is ongoing.

I finally am caught up with the recorded episodes.

Ever since this choir’s audition, I’ve been meaning to post the video of their performance.

They sang Toto’s ‘AFRICA’ then.

I can’t put it off any longer, they received the ‘Golden Buzzer’.

Hope you enjoy their talent as much as I have.

Big enough to take up an entire stage, the Angel City Chorale will be moving onto its biggest stage yet – broadcast live on “America’s Got Talent.”

Competing against 17 other acts during the Judges’ Cut round, Angel City Chorale took the Golden Buzzer and one of the coveted seven spots in the next round of the competition.

The Los Angeles-based choir was founded in 1993 by Sue Fink. Fink said she wanted to create an environment for everyone to feel welcomed.

“Los Angeles is a maze,” Fink said. “It’s a huge city. I wanted to create a small community of singers that felt like they had a home.”

Diversity isn’t just a strength, but the group’s selling point. The choir is made up of people of all different walks of life coming together to celebrate their joys and comfort each other during their low moments. One of the members lost his son before joining the group.

“We try to represent diversity: different religions, different ages,” Fink said onstage. “We’re white, black, rich, poor, gay, straight. Even Republicans and Democrats can sit next to each other in our group.”

The pressure was on to top their audition performance of Toto’s “Africa.”

The Tony winner and late-night host offers his own version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein favorite

This was the first time the popular sketch aired in primetime (as part of his third Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special) and therefore, he welcomed a host of CBS stars as guest performers in the troupe.

Oscar winner and Tony nominee Allison Janney and Anna Faris of Mom, Kunal Nayyar of The Big Bang Theory, and Iain Armitage of Young Sheldon took part in the presentation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.

Watch as Janney and Corden both take on the role of Maria and the cast performs standards as “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things,” “The Lonely Goatheard,” and “Do Re Mi.”

Feeling the pressure of airing in primetime, James takes on his most ambitious Crosswalk the Musical yet with “The Sound of Music” – and reluctantly invites Allison Janney, Anna Faris, Kunal Nayyar and Iain Armitage along to co-star, which turns into a fevered battle for the role of Maria.

KATY PERRY …. “Chained To The Rhythm Official Video and Analysis …. “!!

CHAINED TO THE RHYTHM

HIDDEN MEANINGS?

I like Katy Perry. She has some catchy. fun, meaningful songs.

I’ve heard this song and I like it .

A dear friend asked me if I’d seen the video (I hadn’t) and mentioned that there was a deeper, hidden meaning to the song.

I present to you both videos.

You be the judge!

“Chained to the Rhythm” Meaning
Chained to the Rhythm” by Katy Perry is about people who live live far away from difficulty or unhappiness and who aren’t willing to come down out of these “bubble[s]” to see real problems that need to be solved in the world. She doesn’t specify the kind of problems and leaves it to her audience to apply her song to situations on their own though there does seem to be a pretty substantial political charge to this song.

 Chained to the Rhythm” is obviously intended to be a club hit, which brings us to a dilemma: do we dance and ignore the message, or do we stop and try to change the world? Perry obviously wants us to wake up (and possibly stop listening to her song), which makes “Chained to the Rhythm” deeper than your average pop song and also heavily ironic.

Of course, all of this has a vague but unmistakable political tint to it.

Katy Perry was no fan of Donald Trump for United States president. In fact, she was outspokenly in favor of Hillary Clinton, so it makes sense that a song calling out people for not standing up and calling out those in power for being in the wrong could be about Donald Trump’s administration. In any case, “Chained to the Rhythm” is an interesting song with a deep meaning. Let me know what you think in the comments, and let’s continue the conversation!

~~Published on Feb 22, 2017~~

Katy Perry Released her official music video for “Chained To The Rhythm” Featuring Skip Marley and it had a ton of symbolism and hidden meanings in just about every shot. So we studied each scene really well and picked our favorite hidden meanings to share them with all of you.

Katy Perry is definitely one of our favorite artists and we’re really glad she’s making music that talks openly about issues we are dealing with in mainstream society.

~Meghan Markle wearing Welsh gold wedding ring~

May 19, 2018
… on their third wedding anniversary …

Why is Welsh gold used for royal wedding rings?
The custom of using Welsh gold for wedding rings was started by the Queen Mother in 1923.

Welsh gold has been used for royal brides ever since.

The Queen Mother’s wedding ring, the Queen’s in 1947, Princess Margaret’s in 1960, the Princess Royal’s in 1973 and that of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1981 were all made from the same nugget.

The gold came from the Clogau St David’s mine at Bontddu in North Wales.
