Dancing Inmates – MJ’s This Is It

Post by Mark

I’ve posted a number of times about the dancing Filipino inmates (here, here and here) and it seems Michael Jackson was also a fan and used to watch their videos during his breaks. Travis Payne who was Michael Jackson’s choreographer decided he would fly over to the Philippines and teach the prisoners his routine from the film “This is it”. The result? Check out the video above. [YouTube]

Here is a link to the article on [Yahoo]

Thanks T!

Event: Gideon

Post by Mark

The Ahmadi Music Group with Kuwait Jazz Collective present the musical production of Gideon.

Gideon recounts the ancient story of the boyish warrior-prophet who rises from obscurity as the “youngest in the poorest family in the smallest tribe” of all his people. He assembles an army to defeat the Midanite oppressors, who are “like grasshoppers for multitude”. His untrained army approach their enemy under cover of darkness, holding no weapons, but only a dish, a lantern, and a trumpet. On his signal, they break the dishes, wave the lanterns, and blow the trumpets, causing confusion and panic among Midanites, and gaining a great victory. Gideon then reigns as a righteous judge for forty years.

The Ahmadi Music Group are made up of 60 plus singers from many different nationalities here in Kuwait. They will be playing at the Tarek Al Ali Theater in Maidan Hawalli. I honestly hadn’t heard of them before today neither did I know there was a theater in Maidan Hawalli so all this sounds very exciting. Should be an interesting event to go to.

They will be playing on the following dates:
7:00PM Monday 25th, January 2010
7:00PM Tuesday 26th, January 2010
7:00PM Wednesday 27th, January 2010

For tickets call 66184192
You can visit their website for more information on the group plus a map to the theater. [Link]

Sony Soundville

Post by Mark

In March 2009 a small town in Iceland was filled with speakers. The Seydisfjordur village was turned into an extraordinary sound-system for a week. Sounds by Richard Fearless ( Death in Vegas ) Mum, Bob Dylan, Toumani Diabate, Roberto Goyeneche, Murcof, Federico Cabral, Guillemots, etc.

Good idea but no Radiohead or Nine Inch Nails? [YouTube]

Event: Oum Kalthoum Exhibit

Post by Mark

I know this is a bit late but I just passed by the Oum Kalthoum exhibit at the 360 Mall over the weekend and thats why I decided I would post about it. I am not a big Oum Kalthoum fan neither do I know much about her but the exhibition is definitely worth visiting. The exhibition space is huge. I was expecting a small room but it turned out to be gigantic. Its also very nicely put together, very tasteful and there are a lot of things to see. There is even a small cinema like section with a large projector where you can sit and watch Oum Kalthoum perform on screen. If you haven’t passed by the exhibit yet you should. Its free and its located on the ground floor of the 360 Mall.

Rick Astley vs Nine Inch Nails

Post by Mark

Wow can’t believe how well they go together. Trent Reznor should invite Rick Astley to tour with the band or at least make one appearance. [YouTube]

Thanks Wretched
