La Jolla Playhouse innovates theatrically with the musical “Bhangin’ It” https://kenthe390.com/la-jolla-playhouse-innovates-theatrically-with-the-musical-bhangin-it/ Sat, 12 Mar 2022 19:44:50 +0000 https://kenthe390.com/la-jolla-playhouse-innovates-theatrically-with-the-musical-bhangin-it/

Most Americans may never have heard of Bhangra, the energetic and expressive form of Indian folk dance and music that has swept the country for the past 30 years. But the creators of a new Bhangra-centric musical, currently premiering at La Jolla Playhouse, hope that will change.

Sam Wilmott, the composer of “Bhangin’ It: A Bangin’ New Musical,” believes the musical has the potential to transform the future of the art form of musical theatre. The genre-bending show, which officially opens March 20, blends the structure of traditional American musical theater with a story about second-generation Asian Americans exploring their cultural heritage through competitive intercollegiate Bhangra dance and music.

“I’ve shared the show’s work with my closest music writer friends and they’re laughing and they’re crying and they’re getting involved and they have no idea how to evaluate it,” Wilmott said. “They struggle with it because of the range of sounds and styles and how it’s in the weird valley of being a musical, but manifesting in ways they don’t recognize . There’s this learning curve, and it’s new to them.

“Bhangin’ It” is the story of Mary, a half-white, half-Indian American student who quits her university’s Bhangra team in East Lansing, Michigan, after her ideas for change are rejected. Undaunted, she and her roommate form their own Bhangra team to take on her former teammates at a national competition in Chicago.

The musical stars San Diego native Ari Afsar as Mary. The daughter of a Bangladeshi father and a German-American mother, Afsar grew up in Rancho Peñasquitos, starred as Cindy-Lou Who in the Old Globe musical “Grinch” as a child, and graduated from Westview High School before earning a degree in ethnomusicology at UCLA. . From 2016 to 2018, she starred as Eliza Hamilton in the Chicago production of “Hamilton.”

Afsar said she deeply identified with Mary’s journey to embrace her identity as both American and South Asian descent, and was thrilled to be a part of such a groundbreaking show.

“I think it’s such a beautiful and fun story that talks about something really big that hasn’t been talked about before,” Afsar said. “I’m learning about myself through Mary’s ongoing investigation of herself and how she can belong. It allowed me to see myself in a way that I had never seen before.

Bhangra (pronounced “BAHN-gruh”) originated in the Punjab region of northern India and Pakistan and was popularized and modernized in Bollywood films. In recent years, it has transformed with the influence of hip-hop and reggae music forms. In the early 1990s, students from a handful of American universities on the East Coast with large South Asian populations began to form Bhangra teams to build community and perform at cultural events. In 1993, George Washington University in Washington, DC hosted the first Bhangra demonstration competition, the Bhangra Blowout. Since then, Bhangra teams have exploded onto college campuses across the country, as well as into many major regional competitions.

Rehana Lew Mirza, who co-wrote the ‘Bhangin’ It’ book with her husband, Mike Lew, said she became a ‘super fan’ of Bhangra early in her college years, offering to teach writing classes at colleges across the country in exchange for free tickets to their Bhangra festivals. In her twenties, she wrote a screenplay on Bhangra but then put it away in a drawer to focus on playwriting.

In 2005, she met La Jolla native Lew at the Ma-Yi Writers Lab, a New York development space for Asian American playwrights. Lew is Chinese American and Lew Mirza is half Pakistani, half Filipino. She introduced Lew to the world of Bhangra on their first dates, they worked on her Bhangra play script together and when they married in April 2011 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla there was Bhangra dancing at their wedding.

The storyline took a big leap forward in April 2013 when the couple teamed up with composer Wilmott for the “24 Hour Musicals” competition in Manhattan. The trio were tasked with writing a one-act musical in 24 hours, which they called “The Shotgun Wedding”. Somewhere in the wee hours of that night, the subject of the couple’s long Bhangra play came up and Wilmott was intrigued to read it.

“It was so obvious to me that it was a musical,” Wilmott said. “Music and dance are integrated into the world. There was such potential for multiculturalism in the score. In many ways it was modeled after the musicals I loved growing up, but it talked about what it means to be someone living in America today and grappling with the American experience and all its complexities.

Lew said he and his wife found an easy chemistry with Wilmott that helped the story grow beyond their initial imagination.

“There’s a lot of hybridity in the script,” said Lew, whose daring comedy “Tiger Style!” premiered on the West Coast at the La Jolla Playhouse in 2016. “Early benchmarks were Sam’s love of Golden Age musical theater, while Rehana and I are new to musicals but steeped in Asian American politics and identity politics and playwriting.”

Six years ago, Deep Singh joined the creative team of “Bhangin’ It” to bring more musical authenticity to the project. The London-born, New York-based musician, producer and recording artist is a globally recognized expert in Indian classical, folk and pop music styles.

In a joint interview during a rehearsal break last month, the four creators spoke enthusiastically about their collaboration, often laughing and praising each other’s contributions. The quartet says that the synergy of their skills has allowed them to build bridges between various disciplines.

“We had to fight to find the overlap in our conversation,” Wilmott said. “The joy is that the trust we have for each other is so one-sided.”

The uniqueness of the project has garnered much praise and anticipation from theater industry leaders. In 2015 Wilmott won the Jonathan Larson Fellowship for his score “Bhangin’ It”. In 2019, the musical won the prestigious Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theatre, which counts “Grey Gardens”, “Hadestown” and “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812” among its past recipients. And in 2020, Lew and Lew Mirza won the Kleban Prize as the most promising librettists of the year for their script “Bhangin’ It”.

La Jolla Playhouse has been attached to the project for four years and had planned to produce the world premiere much earlier, but the pandemic got in the way. Playhouse art director Christopher Ashley called “Bhangin’ It” “an utterly charming and dynamic new work about finding your identity and building community”.

The musical’s director is Stafford Arima, the Asian-Canadian who directed the Old Globe-born Broadway musical about Japanese American internment camps, “Allegiance.” Singh not only instrumentalizes the score with almost a dozen traditional Indian instruments, he will also perform with the orchestra and take the stage during the dance numbers each night to perform on the two-sided Punjabi dhol drum with the 18-member cast.

The show’s choreographer is Rujuta Vaidya, a globally recognized Bollywood choreographer whose credits include the dance performance “Slumdog Millionaire” at the 2009 Oscars. And Bhangra dance specialist Anushka Pushpala also joined the team.

“This show always amazes me with the way the dance feels,” Wilmott said. “It’s not like ballet or Fosse. You walk into the room with it and it looks like something else. It wakes up another part of you that you didn’t know you had.

Rules and Regulations

With Austin returning to Stage 2 guidelines, the Festival’s latest mask policy leaves it at one recommendation for indoor concerts. Specifically: “Masks will be required in all conference rooms, exhibits, registrations and pre-function areas, and as determined by individual venues and client areas. Masks are strongly encouraged indoors in all other areas and where social distancing cannot be maintained. “

With free on-site testing (for the public and registrants), all attendees will be required to provide proof of full vaccination or a recent negative test. The recommended Clear app health pass took me about 10 minutes to register with my vax card and id handy. Another detail to consider, Stubb’s and the moody amphitheater both have clear bagging policies – which this columnist has personally confirmed will be enforced for all SXSW programming.

ETFs broaden horizons in times of volatility https://kenthe390.com/etfs-broaden-horizons-in-times-of-volatility/ Sun, 06 Mar 2022 19:00:00 +0000 https://kenthe390.com/etfs-broaden-horizons-in-times-of-volatility/

“Value stocks may do well in an environment characterized by higher inflation, higher rates and the continued reopening of the global economy.

Safety in quality

“Furthermore, quality companies are natural ballast to add value to, particularly during periods of inflation when pricing power and strong balance sheets are an advantage. On the fixed income side, exposures to High-yield bonds, municipal bonds, convertible bonds, inflation-linked securities and emerging market bonds could also help diversify interest rate risk,” Kingston said.

A spokesperson for HSBC World Bank suggests investors protect themselves in times of volatility by diversifying their portfolios and avoiding concentration of risk.

Another good rule of thumb is to follow the advice of 1980s American hip-hop group Public Enemy, avoiding the noise around certain stock market stocks and making sure you don’t believe the hype.

And the best way to avoid volatility is to “diversify across a range of assets, industries and geographic exposures,” the HSBC spokesperson said.

Kingston points to the views of the BlackRock Investment Institute which point out that “we remain overweight in developed market equities, and prefer a barbell approach, balancing structural growth in US equities with attractive cyclical exposure to European and Japanese equities.

He says that despite heightened uncertainty, investors are not shedding cyclically inclined segments of the market that are most likely to rise or fall due to macroeconomic factors in the economy.

Interestingly, iShares sees an upbeat growth outlook and “rising nominal yields support a rotation into cyclicals.”

“For example, we saw exchange-traded financial products (ETPs) being a major beneficiary of this trend, with a record US$10.6 billion added globally to the sector in January,” says Kingston.

“Meanwhile, inflows into value factor ETPs also increased (US$2.0 billion year-to-date).

“Furthermore, European equities are also benefiting, given their strong tilt towards cyclical sectors. Investors added US$7.9 billion to European equity ETPs globally in January – the largest monthly allocation since May 2021,” Kingston said.

Kingston and HSBC see the environmental, social and governance (ESG) theme continuing its upward trajectory in the investor space, especially now that more than two-thirds of the global economy has committed to achieving net-zero emissions targets.

“We expect to see further opportunities, whether through investments in technologies, services and equipment to achieve these goals.

ESG a long-term game

“Another key trend is how we live with inflation. Clearly, inflation will persist through 2022, eventually settling above pre-Covid levels. This near-term backdrop could be supportive for structural commodity-related themes,” Kingston said.

Diversification can potentially reduce investment risk. HSBC

According to HSBC ETF, investors should recognize both that ESG is a long-term game and that the exact mix of asset classes that is right for you will depend on your risk profile and investment objectives.

A typical “balanced” portfolio might have around 50-70% exposure to equities, with 20-40% exposure to bonds – split roughly equally between Australian and global markets – with the remainder in cash.

“If you are willing to tolerate greater return volatility – in exchange for higher long-term expected returns – you can increase your equity exposure, while if you are more risk averse you can reduce it,” said said the HSBC spokesperson. .

Alternatively, investors may choose to combine a hybrid exposure instead of a bond and/or equity allocation.

More adventurous investors could even add exposure to commodities, such as an ETF that invests in gold bullion, which offers clients access to over 400 ETFs and managed funds covering a range of themes, sectors and strategies. .

The allocation of investments in gold bullion is just one example of how diversification could potentially reduce investment risk, because if one part of the portfolio performs poorly over a period of time, this could be offset by the best performance of another part of your portfolio.

On the ETF front, Kingston concludes that iShares sees opportunities “both in the long term, by building portfolio resilience through large-scale ESG ETF allocations, and in the short term, where some thematic ETFs can help investors target exposures that may lead to outperformance. ”.

Andrew Campion, Managing Director – Investment Products for AX, says diversification is key in times of volatility.

“Diversification involves holding a variety of assets that are uncorrelated to each other,” says Campion.

“A well-diversified portfolio is one that includes a mix of ‘growth’ assets such as stocks and ‘defensive’ assets such as bonds and cash.”

Investors should be aware that periods of volatility are a natural feature of markets and can help limit complacency and excessive risk-taking, he says.

“They have to be careful not to try to ‘time the market’ because picking turning points at all times is almost impossible, and even more difficult when volatility is high.

“Investors should regularly assess their portfolios against their risk appetite, financial goals and investment horizon, i.e. how long do they need the money they have invested for other purposes.”

HSBC recently launched a service for experienced high net worth (HNW) investors which is aimed at a select group of individuals and has a number of checks and balances to ensure that those who adopt the service have the skills and knowledge to manage their own portfolios.

Pusha T Teams Up With Bape Founder Nigo For New Song “Hear Me Clearly” https://kenthe390.com/pusha-t-teams-up-with-bape-founder-nigo-for-new-song-hear-me-clearly/ Fri, 04 Mar 2022 15:47:28 +0000 https://kenthe390.com/pusha-t-teams-up-with-bape-founder-nigo-for-new-song-hear-me-clearly/

Pusha T hopped on Japanese producer/DJ/streetwear icon Nigo’s latest track, “Hear Me Clearly.”

The track features a dusty drum groove and an unsettling loop of bell-like synths that sound offbeat over the occasional beat of a bass synth. As always, Pusha’s bars speak for themselves: “Kilogram kick-starter pushes a brick harder/Leave my elbow in the pot a la Vince Carter/Compared to two martyrs but I’m chasing bumps/Bosses meet for Hamachi on the back of Nobu.”

“Hear Me Clearly” will appear on Nigo’s upcoming album, I know Nigo, which is set to arrive on March 25 via Victor Victor Worldwide/Republic. It follows previously released singles, “Want It Bad”, featuring Kid Cudi, and “Arya”, featuring A$AP Rocky. I know Nigo will also feature guest appearances from Tyler, the Creator, A$AP Ferg and Lil Uzi Vert, while Pharrell produced the LP with Nigo.

Nigo is best known as the founder of popular streetwear brand A Bathing Ape, and he is currently creative director of Kenzo. But on top of all his work in fashion, he’s pursued music over the years, serving as a DJ for Japanese hip-hop group Teriyaki Boyz and launching the (B)ape Sounds label.

As for Pusha T, “Hear Me Clearly” comes on the heels of his recent solo track, “Diet Coke,” which was produced by Kanye West and 88-Keys. The song is set to appear on the rapper’s follow-up to his 2018 album, Daytona.

Bebe Rexha and the other 9 best musical guests of WrestleMania https://kenthe390.com/bebe-rexha-and-the-other-9-best-musical-guests-of-wrestlemania/ Wed, 02 Mar 2022 23:00:00 +0000 https://kenthe390.com/bebe-rexha-and-the-other-9-best-musical-guests-of-wrestlemania/

Of all things WWE, its most powerful brand is WrestleMania, a name that not only signals the biggest show of the year for the promotion, but also a household name similar to the Super Bowl. And, like the Super Bowl, WrestleMania aims to be a pop cultural touchstone, pairing its sport of choice with celebrities and live performances.

RELATED: WrestleMania: Every Celebrity Match, Ranked

Over the years there have been countless musical guests on WrestleMania, with as many forgettable performances as there are remarkable ones. But let’s stay positive and take a look at this last one – the best musical performances in the history of “the greatest stage of all”.

ten Baby Rexha (WrestleMania 37)


Baby Rexha (WrestleMania 37)

After having to run Wrestle Mania 36 at the WWE Performance Center without an audience in 2020, Wrestle Mania 37 marked WWE’s return to holding large events with live crowds. They chose to open Night 1 of the two-night soiree in a suitably grand fashion, with pop star Bebe Rexha performing “America The Beautiful,” accompanied by electric guitar. In addition to the impressive performance, the entire WWE roster – including boss Vince McMahon – stood atop the ramp for the performance.


9 Snoop Dogg (Wrestle Mania 32)


Snoop Dogg (Wrestle Mania 32)

While Wrestle Mania 32 wasn’t Snoop Dogg’s first appearance in a ‘Mania – he was also master of ceremonies for the “Playboy BunnyMania Lumberjill Match” at Wrestle Mania 24 – the 2016 event hosted Snoop’s first live performance at one. And it couldn’t have been more fitting, as he played his real-life cousin Sasha Banks in the ring for her big three-way fight with Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch to determine a first champion for the newly minted women’s title. Banks didn’t win, but she certainly had the most memorable entry.


THE SPORTSTER VIDEO OF THE DAY

8 Mark Crozer and Parents (WrestleMania 30)


Mark Crozer and Parents (WrestleMania 30)

Hillbilly cult leader Bray Wyatt’s original theme song, “Live In Fear” – also known as “Broken Out In Love” – ​​is a standout among WWE entrance music. Rather than a hard rock track or booming hip hop song, it’s a slower, moodier track that perfectly makes Wyatt and his family a sinister presence.

It also seemed like perfect fodder for a live performance, which original artist Mark Crozer & The Rels performed live at. Wrestle Mania 30 for Wyatt’s big match against John Cena. The performance was made even cooler thanks to the bank look, which involved Crozer wearing face paint and his bandmates wearing plague masks.


7 POD (Wrestle Mania 22)


POD (Wrestle Mania 22)

Legendary WWE luchador Rey Mysterio hails from San Diego, California – area code 619 – so his entrance music, fittingly, is a rock track called “Booyakah 619” by a group of co-workers from San Diegans, the Christian nu-metal band POD The band was even able to play it live for Mysterio before his Wrestle Mania 22 bout, where he faced Randy Orton and Kurt Angle for the World Heavyweight Championship. Mysterio would win the match, earning his first-ever world title.

6 San Francisco Taiko Dojo (WrestleMania 31)


San Francisco Taiko Dojo (WrestleMania 31)

While many WrestleMania entries involve a live performance, the performer is not always a pop star, rock band or rappers. In fact, it’s not uncommon for WWE to bring in local bands like marching bands or, in Sting’s case, Japanese taiko drummers. Wrestle Mania 31 emanated from Santa Clara, Calif., so WWE enlisted the local San Francisco Taiko Dojo to give The Stinger some dramatic flair for their big WCW vs. WWE match against Triple H. While some might wonder what a vigilante wielding a baseball bat has to do with Japanese batsmen, there’s no denying that it looked really cool.


5 Motorhead (WrestleMania 21)


Motorhead (WrestleMania 21)

As Triple H’s go-to band for entrance themes, heavy metal legends Motörhead had two opportunities to perform at ‘Maniaintroducing Trips at once Wrestle Mania 17 and Wrestle Mania 21 playing “The Game” both times. While the first was a surprisingly weak performance for heavy metal veterans, the band made up for it on the second try when Triple H came out with the World Heavyweight Championship around his waist. This time, Trips would be the main contest and ultimately drop the belt to Batista.

4 Nita Strauss (Wrestle Mania 34)


Nita Strauss (Wrestle Mania 34)

In 2016, NXT made Shinsuke Nakamura’s already special entrance even more special by adding a violinist to accompany Nak to the ring during Takeover: Brooklyn 2. For his Wrestle Mania 34 title match with AJ Styles, Nakamura got similar accompaniment in the form of a guitarist.

Years before Rick Boogs became Nakamura’s personal guitarist, Nak was played in the ring at this ‘Mania by guitarist Nita Strauss, known for playing in Alice Cooper’s band as well as being a solo artist.

3 Salt-N-Pepa (WrestleMania 11)


Salt-N-Pepa (WrestleMania 11)

One of WWE’s weirdest picks in WrestleMania history made Bam Bam Bigelow take on New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor the main event of Wrestle Mania 11. Coupled with that, however, is one of their best decisions: hiring Salt-N-Pepa to perform their song “Whatta Man,” but with the lyrics rewritten to address LT’s feud with Bigelow. It’s a gloriously surreal watch, but unfortunately WWE has removed the performance from video releases, replays, and even the WWE Network, so fans have to dig the internet for this forgotten gem.


2 Living Color (Wrestlemania 29)


Living Color (Wrestlemania 29)

CM Punk has never made the headlines WrestleMania – not even when he was WWE Champion – but in 2013 he managed to steal the show via an epic match with The Undertaker. While many fans think Punk should have been the one to end the streak, he at least got an impressive entrance thanks to a live performance by In Living Colour, whose 1988 hit “Cult of Personality” won. served as the entrance music through several promotions. . Along with being a great performance, hiring the band to make their live entrance added to Punk’s selfish heel personality.


1 Run-DMC (WrestleMania 5)


Run-DMC (WrestleMania 5)

There were a number of early performances WrestleManiasand there have been great performances since, but the practice honestly peaked with Wrestle Mania 5 in 1989. Not only did the legendary rap group Run-DMC perform, but Run-DMC played a special role WrestleMania-themed rap for the occasion. Given wrestling’s later obsession with hard rock, this choice seemed ahead of its time, with added novelty as the team performed the song in the ring rather than some sort of entrance rap.

]]> Eurovision organizers ban Russia from 2022 song contest https://kenthe390.com/eurovision-organizers-ban-russia-from-2022-song-contest/ Fri, 25 Feb 2022 17:47:00 +0000 https://kenthe390.com/eurovision-organizers-ban-russia-from-2022-song-contest/

Eurovision organizers have expelled Russia from this year’s song contest, to be held in Turin, Italy, following its invasion of Ukraine.

The decision by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) to exclude Russia from the annual music event is one of many moves by cultural and sporting bodies in response to the Ukraine crisis, with cancellations, including the Friday night performance of Swan Lake by the Royal Moscow Ballet at The Helix at Dublin City University (DCU).

The EBU – the alliance of public service broadcasters including RTÉ, which is behind Eurovision – said its executive board took the decision following a recommendation from the contest’s governing body on Friday. of the song, known as the Reference Group.

The reference group’s recommendation, which it said was based on the rules of the event and EBU values, was backed by its television committee.

“The decision reflects concern that, in light of the unprecedented crisis in Ukraine, the inclusion of a Russian bid in this year’s competition will bring the competition into disrepute,” the EBU statement said.

“Before taking this decision, the EBU took the time to consult widely with its members.”

Non-political event

The organization initially signaled that Russia would be allowed to participate despite launching a military assault on its neighbour, stressing the competition was an “apolitical cultural event”, although it said on Thursday it would continue to monitor the situation.

The pressure on the organization grew, as broadcasters from the Netherlands, Iceland, Finland, Norway and Estonia joined those who made public statements backing a call from the Ukrainian broadcaster UA:PBC for the suspension of Russia.

UA:PBC said Russian broadcasters had been “a mouthpiece for the Kremlin”, participating in the “systematic dissemination of disinformation” against Ukraine, and that this was “contrary” to EBU values.

Russia has not yet selected a candidate, while Ukraine will be represented by the hip-hop group Kalush Orchestra and the song Stefania.

Tensions between Russia and Ukraine already spilled onto the Eurovision stage in 2016, when Ukrainian singer Jamala beat pre-contest favorites Russia with the song 1944, which documented the deportation of Crimean Tatars under Josef Stalin and has been widely interpreted as a criticism of Russia’s 2014 annexation of Ukraine.

There were calls in Russia for the EBU to review the victory on the grounds that the song was political.

As it changed its position on Friday, the EBU reiterated that it was an “apolitical member organization of broadcasters” committed to public service values.

“We remain committed to protecting the values ​​of a cultural competition that promotes international exchange and understanding, brings audiences together, celebrates diversity through music and unites Europe on one stage.”

“Unambiguous message”

Meanwhile, as she announced Swan Lake’s cancellation, DCU said it was “crucial” to show solidarity with the people of Ukraine.

“The Royal Moscow Ballet has toured Ireland annually for over 10 years. The company is made up of many different nationalities; Russian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, Uzbek, Japanese, Irish and Polish cast and crew, who have traveled, worked and lived together for years,” the university said.

“However, following the truly shocking events unfolding in Ukraine, it is crucial that Dublin City University and all civilized countries take all practical steps to stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people and send a message without ambiguity to the Russian people’s government that their deplorable actions have consequences that will impact the political, economic, sporting and cultural spheres at all levels.
