The Moon … Taimane

Just what I need at this moment in time.

Soothing, calming, inspiring music.

I just discovered Taimane.

Enjoy this performance.

Filmed at the beautiful Kualoa Ranch in Oah’u, Hawai’i, this Live Outside video features Taimane performing her original composition, “The Moon,” alongside Windy Weather (violin) and Jasmine ‘Jazzy’ Skurtu (guitar).

“Being born and raised in Hawai’i, it’s hard not to be inspired by the nature around me,” shares Taimane.

“This song came to me one night when I was laying in my backyard with my dog, looking up at the moon wondering what she must be feeling. I did my best to personify her essence, who she is, and this song arose.”

Let this enchanting song carry you to the moon and beyond with a heart full of peace.

Tainm

 Taimane translates to diamond from Samoan and perfectly reflects the different facets of her nature Ukulele Dance CD music

Whether delicately finger-picking through Bach or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin, Taimane has the ability to morph genres – from classical to rock to flamenco – and stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of Hawai`i, where she grew up. In addition to performing her own distinctive versions of well-known pieces, Taimane weaves in original compositions that are as far ranging as her musical tastes Ukulele Dance buy CD music.

Her breakout CD, Ukulele Dance features Bach’s ‘Tocatta‘, Lalo Schifrin’s ‘Mission Impossible Theme‘, and pieces she wrote for the planet Neptune and the Moon, as part of her series on the solar system. With the fierceness of a rocker, the grace of a dancer, and the pageantry of a performance artist, Taimane and her music are wowing ever-larger audiences. She lights up rooms wherever she goes, sparkling like the diamond that she is.

Song Around The World

“I remember having a daydream about the opening acoustic guitar part of “All Along The Watchtower” ending with a Native American scream and a big native drum on the downbeat.

That was the spark to assemble one of our biggest and deepest Songs Around The World.

From Beirut to New Orleans to the Lakota Nation musicians play and sing like a musical army determined to stop suffering and greed all over the world. As a society we need to get back to our roots and connect deeper with our ancestors and native people in general so we can find the wisdom we need to move forward as a human race.

Playing For Change

~~Published on Apr 6, 2018~~

In music as in life, the things that make us different make us stronger. All the various instruments, tones, perspectives, and cultures in this recording combine to create a new version of this classic Songs Around The World.

The idea was born a few years ago during breakfast at the Byron Bay Bluesfest in Australia. Our friend and drummer, Peter Bunetta, introduced me to Tom Johnston of The Doobie Brothers and we talked about taking “Listen to the Music” around the world. We started the track with an acoustic guitar demo played to a click track and then added bass from Colombia, tablas and veena from India, and then headed to the Redwood Forest in Northern California to record and film Tom Johnston live outside. We then recorded and filmed Patrick Simmons and John McFee playing along to the track in a park in San Diego. The journey then continued throughout North and South America, Europe, The Middle East, Asia, and Africa. This final version features 30 musicians from 12 countries united through their love of music.

Playing for Change is a multimedia music project, created by the American producer and sound engineer Mark Johnson with his Timeless Media Group, that seeks to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. Playing For Change also created a separate non-profit organization called the Playing For Change Foundation, which builds music schools for children around the world.

Playing For Change was born in 2002 as a shared vision between co-founders, Mark Johnson and Whitney Kroenke, to hit the streets of America with a mobile recording studio and cameras in search of inspiration and the heartbeat of the people. Producers Mark Johnson and Enzo Buono, traveled around the world to places including New Orleans, Barcelona, South Africa, India, Nepal, the Middle East and Ireland.

Using mobile recording equipment, the duo recorded local musicians performing the same song, interpreted in their own style. Among the artists participating or openly involved in the project are Vusi Mahlasela, Louis Mhlanga, Clarence Bekker, David Guido Pietroni, Tal Ben Ari (Tula), Bono, Keb’ Mo’, David Broza, Manu Chao, Grandpa Elliott, Keith Richards, Toots Hibbert from Toots & the Maytals, Taj Mahal, Stephen Marley.

This musical journey resulted in the award-winning documentary, “A Cinematic Discovery of Street Musicians.”

Music is one the greatest mechanisms for soothing the soul of a restless man. This life may be confusing at times. We are taught to love by the people who teach us to hate. We are taught to believe in what we are told, except for when we are not supposed to believe in what we are told.

We are shown images that appear real but are really fake, and we are shown media that appears fake but is actually real.

We are told that things are the way they are, and we can’t change them, and at the same time are told if we want things to change all we must do is vote.

Music soothes my soul.

~~March 4, 2015~~ 

In this day and age, where technology is in every aspect of our lives, the possibility of feeling alone while in a group, is very likely. 

We always need someone to stand by us. 

St8

“Stand By Me”

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand, stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall

All the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
No, I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand now, stand by me
Stand by me

So darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand now, stand by me, stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me
Oh stand by me, oh won’t you stand now, stand
Stand by me

War

~~August 2, 2014~~ 

Unless anyone has been hiding under a rock, we should all be aware that our world is in turmoil. There is conflict everywhere. There is open war between several countries. There is greed, divisiveness, persecution, hate, inequality, oppression and killing amongst the human race. 

War2

To cite a few:

1948 Israeli–Palestinian conflict
1978 War in Afghanistan Asia Afghanistan
1991 Somali Civil War
1999 Islamist insurgency in Nigeria
2004 War in North-West Pakistan
2006 Mexican Drug War
2011 Egyptian Crisis Africa Egypt
2011 Syrian Civil War
2011 Iraqi insurgency
2012 Central African Republic conflict
2013 South Sudanese Civil War
2014 War in Donbass Europe Ukraine

War3

It seems to be that we, as a whole, have not learned a thing.  We keep repeating the same thing over and over again and the results continue to be the same. 

Insane

We are insane!

War4

I know that this has been discussed many a’times before. Many people have tried to change. There are too many vested interests to really want to stop the insanity. I wonder, are we condemned to forever, permanent warfare?

Reminds me of a game at town fairs: there’s a line of objects that pop up and you have a hammer to push each one back down. You hit one, another pops up. I can’t recall the name. However, it’s like putting fires out all the time and it’s never ending. 

Or the magician’s trick to keep a bunch on plates up on thin sticks and keep them from breaking. 

Will there ever be an end to war?

“Sometimes in music we can find both forgiveness and hope at the exact same time.”

Playing For Change, the multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race.

The newest edition to Playing For Change’s video episodes is ‘Music is my Ammunition.’ It was co-written by Greg Johnson and Mermans Kenkosenki, a South African-based reggae singer from the Congo who calls his musical style ‘Afro Fiesta’ – a combination of reggae, Latin rhythms and jazz.

This mostly acoustic track has a reggae feel, but brings in elements of Delta blues courtesy of Roberto Luti’s steel guitar and a hint of Cuba from Rigoberto Lopez’s bass. Stephen Marley sings back up and Roselyn Williams and Sherieta Lewis of Kingston Jamaica’s vocal improvisations are sung to the melody of ‘Jamaica Farewell,’ the classic Lord Burgess calypso made popular by Harry Belafonte.

~~Music Is My Ammunition~~

(Lyrics)

The songs of my ancestors still ricochet through the wind,
And the smoke is rising through the words I and I sing.
Music is my ammunition; I fire down Babylon!

(One more time)
The songs of my ancestors still ricochet through the wind,
And the smoke is rising through the words I and I sing.
Music is my ammunition; fire down Babylon!

Imprisonment, poverty and Babylon’s system;
We’ve been suffering all this time (all this time)
I and I keep on chanting down ‘Till our children will face
The front of that line

PFC3

(I gotta say)
The songs of my ancestors still ricochet through the wind
(through the wind),
And the smoke is rising through the words I and I sing.
Music is my ammunition, lord; I fire down Babylon!

(One more time)
The songs of my ancestors still ricochet through the wind,
And the smoke is rising through the words I and I sing.
Music is my ammunition, lord; I fire down Babylon!

Peace and dignity are not very far out of our reach
It just comes down (just comes down)
to what I and I choose to teach

Peace

Truth and honesty will free our hearts
And free our minds (free our minds)
So then our children can live together as one
‘Till the end of time

(I gotta say)
The songs of my ancestors still ricochet through the wind,
And the smoke is rising through the words I and I sing.
Music is my ammunition, lord; I fire down Babylon!

The songs of my ancestors still ricochet through the wind
(through the wind),
And the smoke is rising through the words I and I sing.
Music is my ammunition, lord; I fire down Babylon!

Music is my ammunition; I fire down Babylon!
Music is my ammunition; I fire down Babylon!

(One more time)
Music is my ammunition, lord; I fire down Babylon!
