  • Why Listen to Arabic Music?

     Why bother to listen to this music? How can we come to understand these people in war, if we don't listen to them in peace? They're on the other side of a divide from us—very high illiteracy rate, if a person who can't read sees a scrap of printed matter from a newpaper on the ground, they will pick it up in case it might be the Holy Quran. Music has the ability to transcend this divide.  It's great music, one of its influences is Roman culture—this instrument, the Qunan, the name comes from Greek, "Canon", a ruler or tuning measuring rod. They...

    ISIS in Libya have released pictures of armed fighters burning musical instruments as the extremist group continues its propaganda assault in the north African country. Pictures of the heavily armed masked militants watching while a pile of drums burnt in the Libyan desert were released earlier today - purportedly by the 'media wing' of the local group. It is understood the brightly coloured instruments had been confiscated by the religious police, and were destroyed near the port city of Derna, in eastern Libya. A message released with the pictures explains: 'Hesbah seized these un-Islamic musical instruments in the state of...

    From the implosion of MSNBC and CNN to the recent suspension of NBC's Brian Williams, the Mainstream Media is getting marginalized every day. The New Media, democratized by conservative bloggers and alternative-made-dominant counter-media like Truth Revolt and Breitbart are not only knocking the hell out of the lie, but telling more of the story, holding the Establishment of both parties accountable, and freeing the average reader from the hostage propaganda of left-wing editorializing and willful neglect. For the past week, in the wake of Brian Williams' recent admission that he lied about encountering enemy fire during the War and Iraq,...

    The name Ennio Morricone has become synonymous with film, having provided the backdrop to countless classic movies. The Italian composer, orchestrator, conductor and former trumpet player is credited with writing the music for over 500 film and TV series and at 86 years old he still towers like a monolith above all others. It was for these reasons that I made my way to the O2 Arena for what must be one of his last UK performances.

    She has dominated the airwaves during 30 years as a chart-topper, but now Radio 1 has decided that Madonna is an immaterial girl and just too old for its teenage listeners. Despite her determined efforts to look – and sound – youthful, the 56-year-old has been dropped from the station’s playlist that determines which songs are played by DJs during the day. Madonna’s latest song is Living For Love and has been available for airplay since December 20 last year.

Is it merely for us, or do the angels also have need of the declaration?As always with the things of God, there are realities far deeper than most of us imagine. But tonight’s...

The company started as a Los Angeles organ store, became a successful purveyor of guitars after the Beatles arrived in the United States, evolved into a national competitor over a period of decades, and shall finish, with sad poetry, as the symbol of everything dysfunctional about American corporate finance, management, and retail in the modern age.

    Morrissey has scrapped a gig in Iceland due to the venue refusing to not sell meat on the night of the show. The famously vegetarian Morrissey insists that any venue he plays goes meat-free on the night of his performance. However, as confirmed by fansite True-To-You, the Harpa Concert Hall in Rekjavik would not agree to the terms and the gig is now canceled. "I love Iceland and I have waited a long time to return, but I shall leave the Harpa Concert Hall to their cannibalistic flesh-eating bloodlust," Morrissey said in a statement.

    Multi-talented singer/composer Don Covay lost his two-decades-long battle with debilitating illness resulting from a massive stroke. According publicist Don Brown, Covay died in his sleep on Saturday morning, January 31, at the age of 78. Covay composed a litany of hit tunes, such “Mercy Mercy,” which rocketed to #1 R&B on Cashbox in 1964 and became a huge hit for the Rolling Stones in 1965. In that same year, the catchy song “See Saw” became a top-5 R&B hit for Covay on Cashbox, and his composition “Chain of Fools,” a popular R&B classic, became a hit for Aretha Franklin in...

    Funk singer Sly Stone has been awarded $5 million by a Los Angeles jury in his lawsuit against a former manager and attorney he claimed diverted royalties from his music for their own benefit.

He filed suit in 2010, claiming that manager Gerald Goldstein and attorney Glenn Stone in the late 1980s induced him to sign an employment and shareholder agreement with Even Street...
