    Music Spotlight: The Rough Guide to Highlife Music - DJ kwasi africa

    in Music

    One of the finest collections of classic higlife music. with host Dj kwasi africa.  The album is available for download via iTunes & amazon.

    Highlife is a music genre that originated in Ghana at the turn of the 20th century and incorporated the traditional harmonic 9th, as well as melodic and the main rhythmic structures in traditional Akan music, and married them with Western instruments. Highlife was associated with the local African aristocracy during the colonial period. By 1930s, Highlife spread to Sierra Leone, Liberia, Gambia and Nigeria via Ghanaian workers, amongst other West African countries, where the music is now very popular.

    Highlife is characterised by jazzy horns and multiple guitars which lead the band. Recently it has acquired an uptempo, synth-driven sound (see Daddy Lumba). Igbo highlife and Joromi are subgenres.

    This arpeggiated highlife guitar part is modeled after an Afro-Cuban guajeo. The pattern of attack-points is nearly identical to the 3-2 clave motif guajeo as shown below. The bell pattern known in Cuba as clave is indigenous to Ghana and Nigeria, and is used in highlife.

    It was and never should have been Liberia vs Black Wall Street

    in Politics Progressive

    Within the context of Black Empowerment Liberia would have been the nation state (a.k.a. the base of operations)

    Black Wall Street would have been the Satellite community within the United States with a direct line of trade and commerce with the nation state.

    Neither one was a failure but a lesson.

    Apparently a lesson we have yet to learn from and take things to the next logical level, natural conclusion and ultimate end game;

    RedMaryland NewsHour for Friday 10/23/15

    in Politics Conservative

    Great Scott! It's the RedMaryland NewsHour for October 23rd, 2015

    Where we're going we still need roads, and a way to travel on them.
    This week Governor Larry Hogan was thanked for his investment in Rt. 404, and he revealed a plan to improve transit in and around Baltimore with better bus service. We may not have flying cars, but we do have flying planes. The Board of Public Works talked about this form of travel, as it encouraged airlines to bring hubs to BWI airport. The future of the Republican Party hasn't been written yet, but it will be written by Young Republicans, we talk to some of them.
    All this, plus a news update. Sorry I didn't have time to build the podcast to scale or to paint it, but you can join us as we get Mr. Fusion to feed the 1.21 gigawatts into the Flux Capacitor.

    (What, me a Back to the Future nerd? That's heavy.)

    "Black Africa, including British, French, Belgian, Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish possessions and the independent states of Abyssinia and Liberia and leaving out of our account Egypt and North Africa, on one hand, and South Africa, on the other, has an area of 8,200,000 square miles and a population of well over one hundred Millions of black men, with less than one hundred thousand whites...

    The Statistics South Africa Census 2011 showed that there were about 4,586,838 white people in South Africa, amounting to 8.9% of the country's population. This is a 6.8% increase since the 2001 census.

    "Commercial exploitation in Africa has already larger results to show than most people realize. Annually $200,000,000 worth of goods was coming out of Africa before the World War, including a third of the world's rubber, a quarter of the world's cocoa, and practically all of the world's cloves, gum -Arabic, and Palm oil. In exchange there was being returned to Africa one hundred millions in cotton cloth, twenty five millions in iron and steel, and as much in foods, and probably twenty five million in liquors."W.E.B.DuBois 

    The African continent is richly endowed with mineral resources – this cannot be disputed. The US Geological Survey (USGS) ranks Africa as the largest or second-largest reserve worldwide for bauxite (the main source of aluminium), cobalt (used to make alloys and batteries), industrial diamonds (needed to cut hard materials), manganese (the anticorrosive element in steel), phosphate rock (a key ingredient in fertilisers), platinum group metals (a primary component in automotive catalytic convertors), soda ash (an element in glass production), vermiculite (a component in fireproof materials) and zirconium (used to manufacture heat-resistant ceramic materials).

    Encore: Memorial Day - Distinguishing War from Warriors

    in Politics

    Lunch with Louden is a rebroadcast of our 2012 Memorial Day show. Guest Cheryl Hatch, international journalist/photo journalist with extensive work in war zones, and the daqughter of a career Army officer, disusses her insights about the cost of conflict. Ironiclly, in 2012 she had just returned from an embed in Afganastan, and this year has just returned from providing photo support for a story about American-built ebola treatment facilities in Liberia. 

    The banner for the earlier show:

    This week is a special Memorial Day conversation with journalist Cheryl Hatch, just back after an embed with an Army battalion in Afghanistan where she documented the lives of soldiers before, during, and after deployment. Her years of being in and out of war zones, plus a child hood of waiting for her father to come home from four tours in Viet Nam, have brought forth a body of work called THE COST OF CONFLICT. This insightful collection of images capturing what war leaves behind, combined with her reverence and respect for military personnel and their families, should help set the tone for a thoughtful and meaningful Memorial Day Holiday.
