Ethiopian Classical Music



ethiopian classical music
Why do people who are fixated on “international” stuff tend to be so liberal?

I work around such people, the ones who speak four or five languages, get their news from Corriere della Sera, Le Monde, El País and O Globo, have friends from all the different continents, drink maté, eat Ethiopian food, watch PBS, listen to Argentine Tango, Indian Sitar and Persian Classical Music, have screensavers with some image of a foreign land they have visited….all of these people that I meet tend to have liberal points of view. Why is this?

Maybe because conservatives are jingoistic and blissfully ignorant, think they’re and the stuff they’re familiar with is the best and don’t see a point in understanding anything different because they feel all they need to know is “America’s #1″

Now to bash those liberals you speak of. I identify myself as liberal, too, I love all Kinds Of Music and the international, but there’s a lot of PHONIES out there. A lot of these people with fancy music and food are just out to prove they’re smarter and bigger-minded than everyone else, so don’t be fooled by people who put on a lot of airs.

The third installment of Buda’s Ethiopiques series is one of the best, an unlikely occurrence as most of this material was released in 1975–a year after the fall of Emperor Haile Sallassie and the rise of a repressive military regime that quickly brought to an end the Golden Age of music. From trance-heavy tracks to James Brown-style funk and ska-like rhythms, this collection has it all!In six ye…

The influences of American soul and blues are obvious here, the former quite apparent in the Memphis groove of Muluquen Mellese’s Wetetie Mare, with its smoking bass line. But the most revolutionary pieces are those that go utterly against history, making the piece relevant for the young–which, after all, is what rock, hip-hop and every other movement have done in the past!1969-1978: the main bod…

"Walks us through history in a nicely paced diary format…..A superb project."–"Rocky Mountain News" Taking the form of a chronological diary from 1600 to the present, this book leads the reader through the centuries, year by year, following the musicians’ overlapping and interweaving lives. The composers’ own worlds, public and private, spring to life in extracts from contemporary letters and journals, and in hundreds of illustrations, many in full color. An informative introduction traces the history of music before 1600, and special features discuss key works, influences on musical form and performance, centers of musical energy, and changing working conditions. A companion chronology introduces the wider context of important historical and artistic events. The reference section includes biographies, a glossary of technical words, charts summarizing the history of music and the development of orchestras, and a guide to CDs and performers. 388 illustrations, 160 in color.

 Lifelines


Lifelines


$15.99


LifelinesThis is a book of epigrammatic and short inspirational pieces to help readers see truths that they can apply to their lives immediately, perhaps giving them insights to deal with crises in family or work places, or perhaps to encourage them to be more compassionate Christians to anyone they encounter in their lives.These words come from a lifetime of collecting words and sayings from a myriad of people that have encouraged and inspired. So often books of quotes contain items that have been included simply because they were a clever turn of phrase. In Lifelines, however, each entry had to be uplifting as well as insightful to pass muster.They are meant to be slowly sipped and pondered, as if with a cup of herb tea.Walter Newport is a retired professor of language and culture who has spent nearly thirty years in four widely diverse areas of the world – in the USA, Cuba, Spain, and Japan. Dr. Newport was the first non-Japanese professor ever hired by Ishikawa Prefecture in Japan, after having been a founding member of an international center in Toyama Prefecture. He has also been an active Christian in parts of the world in which Christians are a minority, supporting an orphanage in the Philippines, and has helped refugees from the recent Ethiopian-Eritrean war in Africa.He enjoys opera and classical music, theology, mountain hiking, and weight lifting, belongs to the International Society of Poets, and has received numerous awards for his poetry. He now lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Poems Of Petition, Praise, Perception, People, & Playfulness


$8.96


PoemsThe poems in this volume are quite varied in theme and purpose. Readers can find solace or healing, encouragement, joy in The Lord, laughter, common feelings about loved ones, or perhaps special insights into Christian thinking that might serve to bring someone into or back into a Biblical worldview. Many who have begun to doubt or to encounter criticism of Christianity in today’s world they cannot defend against, and perhaps do not have the patience to read apologetic discourses, may find that poetry can speak to their hearts when pure logic does not in an age of relativism, naturalism, secular humanism, post-modernism, and terrorism.Taken as a whole, one gets the sense that God’s Love, Sovereignty, Majesty, Truth and Grace are visible in His Creation, and that humankind need to embrace Him, accept Christ, and dedicate ourselves to obeying, glorifying, and serving Him as long as we live.Walter Newport is a retired professor of language and culture who has spent nearly thirty years in four widely diverse areas of the world – in the USA, Cuba, Spain, and Japan.

As the companion book to “Lifelines,” this book is also meant to be enlightening and inspirational, but with a focus on humor, and as with Lifelines, it is the result of a lifetime of collecting words worth keeping by many, many people.It is clear that we can laugh and smile without being lewd or demeaning. Clever word play, yes, but never hurtful, denigrating, or bigoted. Each entry in Smile Lines is mirth that can be enjoyed without leaving an aftertaste of godlessness.Walter Newport is a retired professor of language and culture who has spent nearly thirty years in four widely diverse areas of the world – in the USA, Cuba, Spain, and Japan.
