IIt’s 9 a.m. in Los Angeles. Bright eyes, fresh face, headphones on her head, Yuna beams into the Zoom window from her living room. In the background, a soft light penetrates through high windows; her husband Adam Sinclair, filmmaker and frequent collaborator, moves in and out of frame; occasionally their two cats Cody and Shiloh trip over his streaming setup.

This is where Yuna composed the music for ‘Y5’, her fifth full album which finally arrived last Friday. Finally, because the record was released in five stages throughout the year: the four-track “Y1” arrived in March, followed by “Y2”, “Y3” and “Y4” in May, July and September respectively. . “It was like that for me when I started on Myspace,” says Yuna. “It’s like it’s come full circle – I’d record three songs, drop it the next month, bite it.”

She may have started doing indie chamber pop, but Yunalis Zara’ai has been turning up the volume ever since. In Malaysia, and now on the world stage, Yuna has established herself as a force to be reckoned with. To date, she is one of the few Malaysian musicians to have successfully crossed over to the United States. in recording deals with New York-based FADER Label in 2011 and later with Verve Music Group, she released a host of critically acclaimed albums and collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Tyler, the Creator and Usher.

“’Y5′ has a very raw beauty. She’s cute, she’s fun, she’s got personality.”

Released in five mini-projects instead of committing to the conventional album cycle, complete with singles, ‘Y5’ is a bit off. But it’s Yuna’s first outing as an independent artist in 10 years, and a girl’s gotta have fun. “It keeps me on my toes. It’s like, here we go again! every two months,” she laughs. “I was so spoiled as a signed artist – I didn’t know how much time in the studio was – and it was a learning curve, but I like to be more hands-on now, even with the business side of things. .”

And on the artistic side of the coin, Yuna taught herself how to produce. “There is something very stimulating in all this: recording, mixing by myself”, she remarks. “Music is mine now. I own it, and besides, I wrote everything. I even recorded some of them at home, in my safe space, with people I love, with my cats. I feel like that’s all I need.

‘O5′, in Yuna’s words, is a “fluid, free-falling” record – a description that resonates with the paradigm shifting circumstances from which it arose. In March 2020, what started out as an innocuous work trip turned into a year-and-a-half stay in Malaysia under lockdown at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Yuna had to sit with the pain of her grandmother’s passing and the grief of losing her cousin and niece to the coronavirus – three staggering losses in almost as many years.

The unscheduled leave allowed him to take a break. Finally, she got rid of the pressures she no longer wanted to bear. “Coming back to LA, to music, was a challenge for me,” she admits. “I didn’t want to be like, this is how it should sound, this is how it should sound.” The result of intense soul-searching, “Y5” exudes a lively, expansive warmth through sweet melodies and soft, tender lyricism about love and loss, catharsis, metamorphosis and femininity. It’s telling – and “by design”, says Yuna – that ‘Y5’ has no guests, especially after their fourth album ‘Rouge’ which enlisted the likes of Little Simz, Masego, Jay Park and many more. ‘others. This time, the spotlight is on you.

HelloYuna starts the record,I waited for you”. The opening track ‘Hello’ could be read as a warm welcome to the album, but in the wake of the departures of loved ones, it’s actually a meditation on death and what comes after:”If I leave, don’t let the tears become you, I only left in the next room.” Discreet but by no means clear, “Hello” is an anticipation of eternity, a refuge from grief. “It’s my most personal project to date,” says Yuna, but even though it’s the darkest, most intimate, there’s a spark to the record. “I love all my albums, but ‘Y5’ has a very raw beauty,” she laughs. “She’s cute, she’s fun, she’s got personality.”

“It is out of the question that I will never return to Malaysia”

‘Y5′ is imbued with subtly inventive touches: the choral shimmer that closes ’24 Hours’, the warm bass counterattack of ‘Don’t Wanna Know’ and ‘Risk It All’, the reverb sparkle on ‘ Fool 4 U’. On ‘Cigarette’,”the road seems endless», while Yuna wonders if she is «made to last” amid relentless concessions from the music industry; on ‘Make Believe’, she is “kneeling”, “devoted to the essentials”.

“Pantone 17 13 30” is a soft-spoken, multi-layered manifesto: a celebration of “the color of my skin”, a mantra of healing benevolence. It’s the sound of a Malay woman acknowledging and reclaiming her beauty, both deep and inner, in a society that has long favored fair complexions. What’s touching is – intertwined with the airy, confident beauty of the accompanying video, filmed by her husband – a visual of Yuna’s hands outstretched, as if to say: this is my experience. Maybe it’s yours too.

Like everyone else, Yuna brings art to life from her experience. But hers, as a Malay Muslim woman constantly oscillating between her adopted city and her country of origin, is a singular expression. In Malaysia, where more than 60% of the 33 million inhabitants are Muslim, believers practice conservative to moderate Islam; the choice to wear the headscarf is personal but tinged with religious obligation and societal pressure. Yuna has become something of a fashion icon and poster boy for “hijabsters” in the United States – attending New York Fashion Week as a guest of Coach, appearing on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar and vogue – but she’s still an unwitting lightning rod for Malaysian keyboard warriors who are very into what she should and shouldn’t be doing. On Facebook, Instagram and the Malaysian tabloids, Yuna’s criticism is a constant: “Please cover your aura», « she is no longer anchored in her religion », and « Yuna is colonized ».

“All year, every day, I get comments about the way I dress, about me not being a good role model as a Muslim woman. I’m like, guys, are we still talking about this? I am way beyond that,” she says wearily. “I understand now that it’s more a reflection of them than me. If I cared, I would have quit years and years ago – but I love music. It’s my life, and I can’t believe I can do this for a living.

Aerial tenacity wears ‘Girl U Used 2 Know’: “Aku rasa kau memang langsung tak pernah cintakan aku / Apa yang lahir dari kau bukanlah cinta, tapi kuasa.” (“I feel like you never loved me / What springs from you is not love, but power.“) Words – “I know you will look in my Stories” and “Make up / Change clothes / Strike a pose / No, I’m not the girl you knew– read as a post-breakup kiss, but it also feels like a clapback to the comments, a nod to his “complex” relationship with the house.

“I know I have a lot of support at home. I see it in the numbers, on my Apple or Spotify; most parts still come out of Kuala Lumpur. My city,” she says.

“It is out of the question that I will ever return to Malaysia. I sometimes read what people say about me, that I have lupa daratan [forgotten my homeland]- but that’s not true, that’s far from the truth. I love Malaysia. It’s always at home.

Yuna’s ‘Y5’ is out now.

One of Bollywood’s most popular actors, Shah Rukh Khan has been honored at the 41st Sharjah International Book Fair (SBIF) with the top award for Global Icon of Cinema and Cultural Storytelling presented at the festival .

Khan was greeted by a crowded auditorium of fans who had been waiting for the star in queues, chanting his name, for 12 hours. Dressed in a black suit, Khan accepted the award from Ahmed Al Ameri, chairman of the Sharjah Book Authority, and Khawla Al Mujaini, general coordinator of the SIBF.

In his acceptance speech, Khan commented on the importance of arts and culture, which have the ability to transcend differences between continents.

“Arts and culture enable love, peace and compassion by taking us on visual journeys,” he said.

“Events like the Sharjah International Book Fair are platforms for stories to be told through the values ​​of nations and cultures. They help us remember what we have in common and inspire hope for a better world.

The SIBF Award honors individuals whose career endeavors have transcended cultural barriers and whose contributions to the arts have created cultural connections across borders.

It seems fitting that Khan is the first recipient of the award: not only an avid reader, Khan has also acted in over 80 films throughout his 30-year career and has a large fan base not only in India and among the Indian Diaspora. but also in Europe, the Middle East and the United States.

From his very first film Deewana in 1992, Khan established himself as the king of romance, teaching an entire generation that love triumphs over all challenges through a series of blockbusters, including Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Devdas and My name is khan.

Khan will also star in the highly anticipated Pathan directed by Siddharth Anand as well as in Deepika Padukonescheduled for release on January 25, 2023.

“I don’t think I need to be nervous,” Khan said when asked about Pathan’s out next year.

Khan clarified that his confidence in the film’s success is tied to a personal mantra: do your best in the moment and manifest the most positive outcome through hard work.

“This is the belief I wake up with. It is belief that drives me, at 57, to go on film sets and work 18 hour days,” Khan said.

“Because if I didn’t know that at the end of the day I know I’m going to make a great product that a lot of people will like, I couldn’t do it. So it’s not an arrogant statement. That’s what I believe, as I sit here – it’s a childish belief that I’ve done my best.

Khan also took a moment to offer some advice to the many young viewers, emphasizing the importance of kindness and honesty.

“In all the troubles you face in life, keep an honest and gentle heart,” he said.

“There will be times when we have to cheat with life, there will be times when we have to change the people around us but in this moment of weakness, if you can keep an honest and gentle heart, you will have the most beautiful life that God and Allah have given you.

Khan also spoke about Sharjah and the development of the UAE over the years, calling it impressive and “top-notch”.

He was particularly excited about how the UAE has welcomed different cultures into the country.

“They allow people to come from the rest of the world,” he said. “And bring their culture and make it a part of this real international metropolitan world center that they’ve created.”

Launch and transform into pheasant season

For more than 60 years, I have resigned myself to a bad night’s sleep the day before the last Saturday in October.

Like a child on Christmas Eve, tormented by visions of dancing sugar plums (whatever they are), I toss and turn, my restless mind replaying scenes from the opening days of the previous pheasant season – cocks cackling, flapping their wings, heroic dogs, hunters dressed in orange, fields of amber lit by the low, slanting rays of the autumn sun.

My memories go back to the mid-1960s, when Iowa consisted of small, short, weedy cornfields surrounded by rows of brushy fences, flanked by fields of oats and hay, interspersed with undrained swamps and unusable – all teeming with pheasants.

Statistics from the Department of Natural Resources confirm this.

DNR road counts in August, the best predictor of pheasant abundance, began in 1962 with a statewide average of 61.1 birds per 30-mile route and an average of 58.6 birds per route during the 1960s. In northeast Iowa, where I do most of my pheasant hunting, the initial index was 90 and the 10-year average was 71.1.

These roadside counts have resulted in annual harvest statistics typically over 1.5 million and often easy three-bird bag limits for me and my hunting buddies.

Enough nostalgia. Agriculture has changed. The fields and agricultural equipment are expanding. The swamps have dried up. Rows of overgrown fences were torn down. Weeds have been pulverized. Oats, hay and pasture have been supplanted by more corn and soybeans. Pheasants have become rare. The hunt has become more difficult.

This year’s statewide pheasant index – 19.6 birds per route – is less than a third of the original 1962 index, but it’s still good news for hunters.

This is nearly identical to last year’s index of 20.1 birds per route, which resulted in a harvest of 373,000 roosters, and is 11% above the 10-year trend (17. 7 birds per course).

Given this year’s statewide index, Iowa pheasant hunters are expected to harvest 300,000 to 400,000 roosters this fall, according to DNR upland game biologist Todd Bogenschutz. .

Bogenschutz said Opening Day hunters will benefit from an earlier-than-average corn harvest, which robs runaway roosters of their favorite haven. On Monday, the maize harvest was 59% complete, a day ahead of last year and eight days ahead of average.

Pheasant hunting may have gotten harder, but it hasn’t gotten any less fun. Nor was it easier to sleep the night before opening day.

I tried meditation and self-medication to no avail. Repeating a mantra couldn’t clear my mind of pesky pheasant hunting thoughts and images. He also couldn’t stay up until the taverns closed, even if it shortened the morning wait.

I also tried prolonged physical exertion, which hurt my muscles as I tossed and turned.

Although I’m never well rested on opening day, I hope there will always be enough rushes of adrenaline to dissipate the morning dizziness and keep me alert until sunset.

“Radio-Activity”: how Kraftwerk went nuclear with their fifth album https://dadsdayoff.net/radio-activity-how-kraftwerk-went-nuclear-with-their-fifth-album/ Wed, 26 Oct 2022 10:15:40 +0000 https://dadsdayoff.net/radio-activity-how-kraftwerk-went-nuclear-with-their-fifth-album/ At the time of Radioactivity, music critics were unsure how to interpret Kraftwerk’s ambivalent stance toward nuclear power.

At the time of Radioactivity, music critics were unsure how to interpret Kraftwerk’s ambivalent stance toward nuclear power. It may not have been helped by the way the band chose to promote the album. “They [our record company] sent us to a real Atomkraftwerk [nuclear power plant] for silly promotional photos,” Karl Bartos later explained. “While filming, I seem to remember that we suddenly had strange feelings.” With photos showing the group dressed in white protective suits and radiation bags over their shoes, it was unclear whether Kraftwerk endorsed nuclear power or simply co-opted the idea as a statement. clever artistry.

In a 1977 interview, Ralf Hütter attempted to set the record straight. “It wasn’t about saying good or bad,” Hütter said. “We are not in morality, but in realism.” Nevertheless, Kraftwerk would rework the song in 1991 to clarify their position. Their live broadcasts began to include overt lyrical references to notable meltdowns such as the Three Mile Island accident and the Chernobyl disaster, pleading with the powers that be to “stop the radioactivity”. Today, their position on the nuclear issue is clear.

“Suddenly, there was a theme in the air: the activity of the radios”

The idea that energy is part of everyday life is not limited to radioactivity: the next track on the album, the slow and ethereal Radioland, taps into radio waves. “Suddenly there was a theme in the air: the activity of radio stations,” said Wolfgang Flür. Having spent their youth playing with shortwave radios in their childhood bedroom, the idea of ​​making all-electronic music to convey the idea of ​​invisible electrical currents transmitting sounds to listeners’ ears was a masterstroke. . “Radio has always fascinated us deeply,” continued Hütter.

Using their synth-based ingenuity to celebrate the wonders of radio communication, Airwaves sit alongside a woozy Moog hook as Hütter speaks in his native tongue about how music brings people together (translation: “When the waves oscillate / Distant voices sing”). In the spirit of the great modernists of the past, Kraftwerk sees radio as a laudable positive technological evolution, tasked with bringing distant sounds into our collective antennae.

Diwali, the festival of lights, is the time of year when Goddess Lakshmi visits our homes. Therefore, people clean their houses and light diyas to welcome the goddess of wealth. This year on Diwali, light 24 diyas and keep them around the house or on the altar or in the mandir. The scent of agarbatti or dhoop and fresh flowers will add to the mood. Make a beautiful rangoli at the entrance of your house. Spend time with your family and stay home, pray and eat with family. Decorate the entrance as it is the mukh dwar of the house – positivity and energy enter the house from the main entrance. In the evening, light the diyas and do the puja. Follow the mahurat to do Diwali puja to reap the benefits. During prayer, face north or east. For abundance and wealth, light three red diyas in the southeast area of ​​the home or office. Diwali pujan is October 24.

After Lakshmi pujan ends on October 24, put kusha/darbh/durva on Lakshmi’s revered coins, on chopdas and cover them with red cloth.

On October 25, India will witness a partial solar eclipse. It will start at 4:29 p.m. and end at 5:42 p.m. in India. As soon as the clock strikes 12 o’clock and the date reaches 25, the shadow (sutak) of the solar eclipse begins at 04:49 early in the morning.

This time is of the utmost importance for the awakening of our self-awareness and escalation by reciting mantras and chanting. The count becomes a thousand times. Do not use your japmala or aasan during this time, count it in other ways and sit on a darbh aasan.

Once the solar eclipse is over, you have to take a bath and then visit a temple. The lighting of diyas will continue in the same way as after the completion of Diwali pujan.

The singular and incendiary talent of playwright Suzan-Lori Parks is showcased this season in three world premieres—Play for the plague year at Joe’s Pub, The more they come to the Public this winter, and Sally and Tom at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis – and the Broadway revival of his Pulitzer Prize-winning play in 2001 Topdog/Underdog.

In Kenny Leon’s transcendent production, Corey Hawkins and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II play brothers Lincoln and Booth, struggling through the chaos of shared history, pain and love with searing force and heartbreaking intensity. . Parks explained how she does all of this, the artist’s role as a “sacred agent” and the need to “wake up with love.”

vogue: Welcome! It’s such an honor. You are having an amazing year.

Suzan-Lori Parks: I feel very blessed. I do what I’m supposed to do. I realized the other day that doing the TV show that came out last year, Genie: Arethaand the movie, USA vs. Billie Holidaydoing those two things, especially showrunning for tv, prepared me perfectly to do three world premieres and a Broadway revival at a time. And I have fun!

You left out that you were also inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame.

I feel so lucky and grateful to work with amazing collaborators. I feel like I got my brotherhood with Kenny Leon directing Topdog/Underdogunder the direction of Niegel Smith Play for the plague yearunder the direction of Tony Taccone The more they comeand with Steve Broadnax III directing Sally and Tom. These incredible artists. I could go on and on.

Let’s talk about Topdog/Underdog. I saw the production of this play in 2003 at the Royal Court in London. I had never been in a theater where a play was so alive with its audience. It changed some internal chemistry in me.

“Changed some of the internal chemistry.” Yes. You have received the transmission.

Tell me more.

I realize, when I am doing my job, when I am in the groove of my goal, capital P, when I am in the way with my higher self, capital S, that my work is an agent of the sacred. And the people who participate with me in the creation of this work become sacred agents. This is what we do. All the way back from [Parks’s 1990 play] The Death of the World’s Last Black Man aka The Negro Book of the Deadall the way, even when I’m doing work for hire, like Genie: Aretha Where USA vs. Billie Holliday Where native son Where Girl 6, I devote myself to transmitting the beautiful song, capital S, of the soul, the song of the spirit. It’s 2022, and it’s time for me to talk about it.
