"Tell the people what my art is worth Get it soon Don't believe it's a period to the darker races Just means you inferior living darker places God's amazing we artists this ain't a product placement huh Love is a spiritual technology So this album is a return to some of black stars themes of black excellence unity confronting racism pan africanism elevating consciousness How do you see these themes resonating today in a world that really is markedly different than it was 24 years ago Sure I agree with that social media I think more than anything we've seen in our lifetime has changed the landscape and changed the conversation The fans have a lot more access to the artists and so that can be a gift and that could be a curse I've experienced both gift and curse when it comes to that And I'm glad that you mentioned pan africanism In particular black star were named for the honorable Marcus garvey famously a Jamaican immigrant who came to America and was trying to build ships the black star line to get Americans back to Africa This is the sort of beginning of pan africanism and a push for reparations And so with black star we've always been about hip hop about pan africanism a spirituality all these things that are necessary for the liberation of our people And I think it's timely that we come back now Releasing this album in this moment where we've seen the reinvigoration of the movement for black lives but also an extreme reaction to it to stop it What is the message here The messaging on the black star album the first one resonates now And we weren't saying anything that much different than you know people like or Mary Baraka in the black arts movement and what Nina Simone was saying on stage towards the end of her career We stand tall on the shoulders of our ancestors The canon of black art is amazing and it is the lifeblood of all great art that comes from America in particular Black people in America have been the moral compass and we've been the ones who have elevated the art and we have been the ones who have made the most original American things.

"Game and quickly picked ten of her favorite hymns But instead of tin instrumentals she had a request She said I'm not a vocalist but I'd like to sing on it I said you Nikki Giovanni There was one particular selection that Giovanni wanted to sing Nina Simone's night song recorded in 1964 Made the song was a dear friend And I said you know if we could do something I want to sing this for Nina I want to sing this particular song And he said well I need to change you know if I do what I need to bring it up to date and I said I couldn't agree more So that you'll hear here this is not truth is on its way This is not a traditional And I just thought it was wonderful This was a first for Giovanni singing is not something she'd ever thought she'd do But night song represents many things for her including Nina Simone's decision to leave the United States in search of belonging After experiencing the brutality of American racism Going who knows where Only thing I know I'm not going there but even with that understanding of what that song means to Giovanni her family was surprised that she'd actually sing the lyrics My cousin.

"Times. It's Monday, February 14th, 2022, happy Valentine's Day. I'm Gustav ariano and this is a mere questlove Thompson. Back when I was teaching at NYU, you know, my students were rather young. And you can't take for granted that they know what a thriller is. Or who run or DMC is, it's like, all right, boomer, what's important this week, public enemy, great, okay. You know, how do you make this resonate with them that this just not another history film about old people and their time? Suddenly, once George Floyd comes to the conversation. I'll just say that you really truly couldn't tell what was real on television and what was our film footage? It was interchangeable. The film footage questlove is talking about, it just earned him an Oscar nomination. The roots drummer and music legend sifted through 40 hours of archival footage of the 1969 Harlem cultural festival for his film. It was a festival where legends like Nina Simone and Stevie Wonder performed in the same summer as Woodstock, and he used that festival footage to put together his debut documentary, summer of Seoul, which was released last year. The film is now in the running for best original documentary at this year's Oscars. So today, we're airing an episode with questlove from our sister podcast to envelope. And we know you're gonna love it, so yeah, think of this as your heart shaped box of see's candies on Valentine's Day..

"And the TV without the noisy surges of hand dries and the bleeping of trained doors without the plastic unknowable surfaces and the dry air containment of his life without pulsing lights of the ceaseless sense of personal availability without all of these things. I might have been different, walking would have been part of ordinary life, like learning the names of trees and flowers, and identifying birds by their song. I would have written with ink on soft paper and read in the evenings and heard music only when somebody sat down to play it. I would have seldom encountered the chaotic press of too many bodies in one place, and perhaps my nerves would have been steadier for it. As a woman, of course, there are a few points in history where I would have felt the advantages of this great sensory freedom. And so I must content myself with the noisy demanding present day and be grateful for it. But that is why we need diagnosis like ASD so that people like me can explore the strange ways that we might fit into this Brave New World. It's a lovely book. We are offering listeners three absolute copper bottom fantastic books today as far as I'm concerned. I agree. Catherine's book, Nina Simone's gum and the book coming up, they're all terrific. So thanks for bringing that one John. Great.

Mccoo and billy davis junior as they watched. Yes they relive those moments. They relive that performance. Obviously they haven't seen it themselves either. They experienced it but they've never seen that performance until now and we get to experience that viewing along with them and the line that he says. Actually i think marilyn says is we were so happy to be there because as you noted they felt like there was a separation between them and the black community. A lot of people thought they sounded white. They really hadn't been embraced. They were maybe a little nervous even coming to that stage and they really wanted to prove themselves this for them was like maybe the most important performance of their careers up to that point and maybe ever and then to just experience it with them as they deliver and the joy and the emotion on their face that's really really powerful and then the number one. It's it's nina simone. i mean for me. It's actually that i number. It's backlash.

She has invoked the name of v. Pos after nina simone died her daughter. So that's kelly's mother lisa simone. Kelly was put in charge of the estate of nina. Simone nina simone's final wishes were that her wealth be used to fund musical education for children in africa. If that sounds vague take it up with you. Know a ghost if you want in two thousand thirteen though. Lisa simone kelly steps down from this role in a fairly public legal battle. She's accused of breaching fiduciary duty allegedly diverting funds including a reported one point five million into her own bank account Per report from the daily beast who looked at some of the legal filings in the case which shutouts the daily beast for these records that were floating around on twitter because the internet los abuse loof. So we're comal. Harris comes in as she at. This point is attorney general of the state of california. So this case is under her and at one point according to the daily beast. She wants to surcharge. Lisa's mon kelly almost six million dollars and then two and a half million dollars in interest like a very large sum of money scientifically. I would say a lotta fucking money. Eventually ends with an agreement between both parties sc. Kelly no longer is involved with the estate. She loses her rights to her mother's work and then probably most importantly related to her. What her daughter is now. Tweeting lisa simone. Kelly can no longer say or even imply that she is connected to her. Mother's work to her mother's estate exactly and so.

I mean speaking of pandemic musical events where you have one artist alone playing on the lincoln memorial on the on the national mall. New life for me. Ooh ooh but i mean you have to admit that knowing the way kambas involved in this fucking like lawsuit for her to have a nina. Simone song is a little shady. I kinda love it so at this point. Simone kelly's mother post the video on instagram. I support her. One thousand percent support everything. She's saying she's speaking her truth. She's speaking the truth of our family. She also supported khloe. Bailey's interpretation of feeling. Good which i second. I think she did an amazing job. Have you seen the documentary. What happened miss simone feeling. Good yes i have i actually. I really liked that documentary. But that documentary is not super complementary to nina simone and her relationship with her daughter. If i remember correctly right. I mean that's one of the it's a few years old now but one of the things i remember enjoying about it or finding enriching about it is it does paint a fairly comprehensive picture right you. You lisa talked about her. Mother is being abusive. And that nina simone abandoned her when she moved to berea she calls her mother a monster and also in equal measure talks about her mother's gifts and talent and the music she shared with the world. When mom was see you cry. She knew she could push your buttons. That's what she wanted. And i would not give her that satisfaction when she would hit me. I would look her dead in her face and she liked. You better cry cry. I wouldn't do it. You get this kind of complete picture. Which is what i was thinking about. When going to smoke tweets. A second thread that offers a different set of allegations about how the legal proceedings in two thousand thirteen actually went down according to her. She's a lot. And it's plainly kind of refuting though twitter sleuths who over the weekend have just been like pulling court document after core document circulating them on twitter and saying actually misery. Honest moan kelly. Your mother was embezzling. Like that's why you don't have anything to do with your grandmother's a stay and there's a lot of speculation. Actually that ran a simone. Kelly didn't know about this kind of court case drama and that that's why she did this twitter thread like maybe no one informed her. Their mother was embezzling which is somewhat paternalistic and in this second thread. She kind of directly addresses that and says her mother never embezzled funds that her being stripped of her title as a state administrator was a calculated. Legal move on communist part. because and i'm quoting directly from a tweet here in the revoked will kamo was using which is a whole other story unto itself. Tell us tell. The story please ran. My mom was protected in every way from litigation especially she used attorneys and accountants to help her run the estate which she did mom being forced to resign would strip her of her protection. Simone kelly also says that since nina simone state was french nina. Simone was a french resident. The us government actually had no rights be involved. I'm not a lawyer. don't we have established. We are not not mathematicians not scientists. I think the best way to sum up that second threat is the rana simone. Kelly refutes all of the claims that are running around twitter and have been reported about this twenty thirteen legal proceeding and then offers up her own set of allegations about what actually went down..

"Okay the literal range. No waste the liberal range not me appropriating this phrase she. I'm literally commenting on the range of notes. Which she sings in this cover you will hear now dispeat- for me khloe has a pipe on her but the thing about this performance and the thing about this song and the cover of it is the. I'm so sorry but it's really giving me like college burlesque troupe. But with a budget. Like i love her so much but i cannot lie and say that i saw this video coming across and i did not. I can't lie and say didn't start. Laughing i fully did. It's just like you did. Prompt me to google the fifty shades of grey soundtrack. Because i was convinced absolutely convinced that cover of feeling good was on in one of those movies. It was not this in my head but it wasn't last holiday the iconic movie with queen latifah. But it's just the thought of gray in this long. It's just really funny. The combination of it being for juneteenth special just reminded me of this absolutely iconic and how this performance was kind of a non ironic version of it. We're gonna play this vine. I'm going to pause an advance because you're going to have the stuck in your head for the next two weeks was bad. Bricks brick red river. Our shaking that aired out make k. Rachel gone down for the count. I listen. I listen to that mine in preparation because episode still fully. Stop laughing because that's what this exact vibe performance gave me and woody gave a lot of the internet clearly because after his performance video jobs on twitter like people colleges roaster like a malicious way. But just a like a you know. It's objectively funny. She's you paint like feeling herself in her catsuit alone with. I assume smattering of crew members and masks operating us. Yeah it's just so funny like just imagine showing up to like. I don't know a dedication ceremony for june teeth in. You're like there's khloe just you know absolutely living her best life with this fifty shades s cover chloe and halle actually used to share an instagram account and in relatively recent internet history have now established independent internet brands and chloe getting shamed for how she dresses and the photographs. She posts i mean. Do we still say slut shaming in two thousand twenty one. Because that's that's i think a good way to describe like what she experiences online exactly. And i want to make a distinction between like the kind of original reaction. I saw and like the that where this is going to tell. This is going. Yes so the first reaction. I saw is fully aware of the way in which khloe getting sledge. Am it's like most of the reaction is from black woman themselves and it's just like playfully clouding her and the way you would like your cousin like it's like no one is slut shaming her. It's just like this is a fucking hilariously. This is a non ironic version of mike. Pompeo's sita sam cook. But like then the internet gets a hold of it and it stops being fun like fully south being fun because then people earnestly are yelling about how close performance was like too sexy and denigrating the good wholesome name of one nina simone. I would question what did they think. Feeling good about. I'm just like have you listened to the words of that song like it's like you know khloe chose strange fruit or some shit like that would actually like no. She picked the song that had a vibe and also. Let's be real here. Nina simone lake would have laughed at this performance in like a non malicious way or like fully supported it because miss simone at one point said my attitude towards sex was that we should be having it all the time sets positive is under selling it. I'm tired reading all the time. I'm just like miss miss simone but she likes. She famously danced naked a nightclub in liberia and so for this kind of online backlash to be like. How dare you besmirch the legacy of nina simone by being sexy like you. Ma'am are besmirching. The legacy evenings abon by saying that she is not your eight. Yeah i really wish this was the end of the story but at this point in the saga the ghost of nina simone weighs in on twitter. The ghost the estate of nina simone tweets. It's thoughts about the khloe performance in a a now deleted kind of shady tweet. It was a gif of nina. Simone de girl sit down and the tweet is now nowhere to be found but of course you can find it everywhere online but i mean this is the thing nina simone died in two thousand and three twitter was launched in two thousand six. For what reason is there. A official nina simone twitter account. That's not just tweeting. Like what nina. The most music is currently being used. But kind this tweeting in the voice of nina simone. As nina simone is alive because someone at the estate of nina simone kency the and knew that decades later juneteenth become federalized as a holiday and that a young pop star or star would make a sexy cover of feeling good and they would need to weigh in. I really wish that person at the nina simone state would use their powers of precedence for something better than this. Yeah it's sort of funny too when you read through the tweets on the estate of nina simone account. Because they're like the more recent ones are not super voisey. There's a recent tweet about how they very proudly licensed feeling good for a dove commercial. Jarring a'dove commercial. So some of these state of nina simone realizes that this tweet was about idea the tweet gets deleted. And that's the end of the story right. Here's wish shit gets messy nina simone granddaughter simone. Kelly comes through to defend khloe. But that's not just it. She also adds approximately seventeen layers to the drama so the first tweet from kelley goes like everyone's coming at kelly bailey for her performance but we don't understand is that grandma was a free spirited woman herself. She would've loved that performance as much as i do. Relax khloe killed. It goes on referred her grandmother as a muffled and bad ass woman. Who did what she wanted to when she wanted to. Which again this could be the end. But it's not it could be but it's not approximately some. So after she defends khloe she quote tweets. This tweet from rando. That says nina. Simone passed away april twenty first two thousand three and twitter launched july fifteenth. Two thousand six. Why would her state even make an account for her. Like promoting posthumous projects and whatnot is fine but actually trying to impersonate and interact is very weird simone. Kelly then comes in with a quote tweet saying nina's granddaughter here my family. Does it run her estate anymore. It was taken from us and given to white people are family name was dragged in the media we get no royalties nothing to hold someone accountable as kamala harris. Why she came from my family..

"To be taking you on a wild journey that starts with a pretty innocuous cover of nina simone classic and influence alleged embezzlement and somehow involve one vice president. Kamla hairs reach. That's a mad libs. That's a fill in the blank paragraph like at a noun adverb remember what an adverb is at an adverb. It's amazing because the description gets it. Perhaps four percent of the story. Mostly though it's a story about how when you find yourself falling into an internet cafe whole of drama and mess like the one rachel just so eloquently described in brief the smartest thing you can do honestly is to take a beat take a breath and do a little bit of your own research. The reality of events usually ends up different than say the original viral tweet might have indicated but first we simply have to talk about madison's absolute favorite topic the bachelor franchise in the outline for today's show. You wrote batch for a brief leading moment. I thought we were gonna talk about bach. Which i thought okay. I'm ready i. I'm sorry to disappoint you. We're not talking about bach. we're talking about batch. The most important thing in the world the late baroque only god anyway. These weren't talking about this. Because on monday rachel lindsay the first black bachelorette did a huge as toll to interview with allison davis and the top line of it is shits fucked up. The real meat of it is that rachel really held nothing back. There were no holds bar like it was full of incredible details and kind of just really outlined how terribly this franchise has treated her. It sort of starts out in present day ish. She lays out this story with that interview with chris. Harrison defending rachel connell attending a racist party in antebellum southern dress. Yet right good job. i'm so proud of you. I'm actually really so the core of the story at least my understanding of it as a bachelor. Bachelorette neophyte is that she's calling out the toxicity of the show's fandom. Yes and there's perhaps no one better acquainted with it than rachel lindsay. I'm going to give you a brief outline of her time on the bachelorette but if you guys want to know more than you can always listen to our bachelor episode wherein which. I give a mini. A master's thesis on my theories are but as i said before rachel first black bachelorette. She was cast on a season of the bachelor with a white lead. In this piece she talks about how the producers approached her from the beginning. They were very aware of her place. As one of the first black contestants with a really accomplished career she is a lawyer and was working with a really religious law firm and it was kind of just a story that had not been told on the bachelorette she goes into the -tations with it and the way that she was treated on nick season. Which is she kind of always knew that she wasn't ever going to marry him and the kind of way. They framed her disputes with other contestants. In this way of like black woman is aggressive in cold as as white woman is crying so this is her doing that. People white people we stop doing that. Truly and so she goes into this. She's approached to be the bachelorette and she has like a full hesitations about it. She's like. I don't think i wanna do this. This franchise has just. I don't think it's ready for that. But she goes home and these people at our church are like my daughter's excited to see you because she's never seen someone like her do this and so she does the bachelorette and it does not go well. It's impossible to summarize like that season but like they're racist contestants made plotline in a way that is like deeply harmful to rachel herself her final choice as she ends up marrying framed as kind of like a backup to this white man because they really want to focus on this white man who was like objectively mediocre basically. She's not treated well. And then that doesn't even get into the bachelor phantom of it all otherwise known as bachelor nation but rachel in this piece with p davis makes a distinction between bachelor nation and bachelor clan clan with a k. I was gonna say in case. It's not very obvious. yes she says. Bachelor clan is a hateful racist misogynist xenephobic and homophobic. They are afraid of change. They are free to be uncomfortable. They are afraid when they get called out what she kind of gets. That is the way. In which the bachelor franchise this like. Nineteen twenty year old franchise has cultivated this toxic audience and in wanting to kind of modernize or cravenly capitalize on the ground swell of support for like diverse leads. They wanna have their cake and eat it too which is to not alienate their core toxic audience but have this lead who their audience is going to attack over and over and over again even once. She leaves the show right because she got bullied of instagram. Correct after her yassin. Yeah so rachel ends up after the show being really involved in bachelor nation. She does podcast. She's kind of actually tried it out as like look at this thing that we did. But she's also consistently criticizing and pushing the franchise be better. This brings up an interesting point. We talk about when we talk about a lot of online celebrities or celebrities to then go onto have big online presences. Is that fans. Start to feel this weird sense of entitlement to every and all aspects and moments of their lives. Yes and they feel very possessive of this way to put it that. They consume and in their possessiveness. They don't i mean they don't like change and they don't like being pushed because things like the bachelor or reality. Television in general are kind of framed as a slight comfort fluff thing and so people don't want to think critically about the things that they're consuming because they're not really taking super seriously anyway but the show runners. In always looking to broaden their audience. Want to be able to have black people be the lead or have just like people on the show or just don't want to be called out for being actively races but what they don't wanna do have to actually deal with this toxic audience that they've created and that they are putting this black lead in front of like their opening this person up to a firing squad and wanting to be clapped for starting off with a real light one today super way just as you know some frivolous reality television and the incredibly terrible audiences that they cultivate that they don't want to alienate but that they are actively trying to diversify while not acknowledging that you can't.

You probably heard that before I've had, but you know that people say they're democratic. Go Democrat or I was gonna vote Hillary or I was gonna vote for it. And then I ended up voting Trump. I don't know. How the hell did you say? I don't have a L. You say you're a Democrat. But yet you voted Trump. Why'd you mad at somebody? I'm going to go to trial and he's gonna what the hell that trump going to give you that the Democrat is not giving him what is he going to give you? A true Democrat do not would not would not. Ever regardless of what he said he was going to do, because that's what he's about what I'm going to do, but don't do it. He's a self person is the meat person. I just don't understand it and then keep in mind he was doing but he was talking hate. From the get go. I mean, even during his campaign, it was always separating people us versus them. He was all about hate In the beginning. So anybody who really supported Sanders, you know to vote for Trump. It makes absolutely zero sense. I don't think they were. Well, Democrats think they just wanted an excuse to say it. They were always gonna pull that way. Maybe so. Maybe so, because they're mad at Hillary. So they're gonna punish Hilary by making a vote of somebody Who is that awful that bad for the country? That terrible a person. It doesn't make sense and Bernie supporters..

"Is square means woman in the CREE language. It's also the name chosen by alternative. Electronic Singer is square. The moniker is an abbreviation of her. Traditional name was he squandered a square which means blue sky woman is square has been a powerful and unapologetic voice for the indigenous experience in Canada. Ever since her self titled Album in Two Thousand and thirteen and her follow up. Juno nominated album the fight within four years later. Her third album at Chaco sick came out last month. It's been nominated for a Juno for adult alternative album of the year. Her Video Little Star has also been nominated for video of the year the cree and may T- artists grew up in Winnipeg and is based in Hamilton. She joins me from Toronto. Welcome sister at ten. Say from you so tell me about your new album. What were you thinking feeling about? Is You wrote these amazing songs. While thank you first of all and this one was a piece that I wanted to. I wanted it to be a story from start to finish so when I was putting all of the pieces together. I looked at this as a full narrative that was meant to share stories about culture and community and pride and art in addition to some of the struggles in some of the more challenging conversations. That are taking place within our community and society and so on to create this like element of of empathy. I suppose so that when the challenging conversations started to peel back when those layers started to come come down that that would exist so that we would be able to move forward through those conversations with a warmer spot in our hearts for each other. So much of your music as you said earlier you want to have these conversations whether they're difficult or challenging conversations with people and Much of a music is very political and I use that in air quotes because political means a lot of things to different people. What does it mean for you? It means to be a part of the change that I wanna see so it means that you know my experiences experiences of my loved ones. My family my community those people around me. I want to share those stories in a way that reaches people so that we can make changes. So why did you lend your voice in this way square when you could do very well by singing straight up pop songs staying out of it? Why do you get in it? You can't unsee what you've seen and that's really that's it. There's no other reason a rationale for me. I I feel this way. I see these things and it's it's now just a part of me. I didn't start off as a political artist. If you would write. I started off as just an artist. And and you know when you when I when I sit back and I listened to the ones that come before us Nina Simone. This is not a perfect quotes. Don't quote me on it verbatim. But along the lines of it's an artist's job to reflect the time and I really really value that sentiment and I think it's really important for us to use our our platforms our voices for those sorts of things. So it's less of a choosing more of something that just is a part of my soul now and it's more than just gesture music and and your lyrics it's also Your performance when he perform onstage. You transform you. Wear you put on the face paint and some elaborate costuming and you know you entered into this worldwide. Do that you know it's funny i. I'm learning more and more quite introverted. When I'm not on and then when I'm on whether it's you know on stage or public speaking any of those sorts of things it's I- i- tap into this different side of me and you know sometimes. I think I'm just a conduit to you know ensuring that somebody else's sharing these stories as well right and when it comes to how I perform it's something that just comes up from from the floor through my feet and then out my skull. I have no idea. They say it's the ancestors to believe that one hundred percent. Yeah when I any time I feel or have felt nervous or anxious about whatever it is that I was about to go do whether it was certain stage or a certain conversation or talk or something I if I can regroup and refocus my energy into you know talking to my ancestors my you know the ones up there that I speak to directly. I feel much stronger going into it and so yeah I definitely think they`re. They're with me all the time. I WANNA spend some time talking about your videos which earned gorgeous and powerful little stars I mentioned was just nominated for a juno for video of the year and I have to say that when I watched this video. I wept wept. It really really touched something inside I. What story does this song and video? This is a story of how the media was representing two of our indigenous youths during the trials of the nonindigenous men who were accused of their murders. At of course square. You are talking about the lives of Tina Fontaine in Colton Bushy. Yeah and at the time of these trials Certain media in particular were quite reckless with the way they were running headlines reporting on the cases and the stories and it really hurt. You know I and I don't mean that in any kind of simple way I mean that in the most If you could find the deepest Nook of your soul and stick something sharpen their. That's what it felt like and I didn't know what else to do other than to write. The song and the video really brings in that narrative and of course we'll post linked to that video on our website at CBC dot ca slash unreserved so squeaking of the Junos. How does it feel to be nominated again for your work? Feel so good. I was very excited. I was actually really surprised to be honest. Or you know I you know I don't know I think it was just one of those things. Where when you create a piece of art. It's hard to imagine that people are going to respond or something like it's it's such a vulnerable place to be that I tend to shy away from it and I'm just like okay here. You go and then I run and hide. That's kind of what happened. So what do you think it means though for for for particularly somebody who is indigenous and also political receive in recognition like this? Well Yeah it's I mean number one. It's a huge honour and I'm still. I'm still kind of digesting it right like it's been a huge uphill. Climb FOR ME. And it's a slow climb and so I I'm still kind of processing the sentiment of what it means to me what it means to what I'm doing and and almost like taking a step back and going. Oh there's people who are on board with me on this like they're a part of of the conversation and they're a part of the art and those two things are like. I can't rip those apart if I tried. And so people are starting to support that in ways that they hadn't before for me right so it's it's pretty powerful. Well thank you so much for your time today. Stay awesome sister. Thank you my friend. And congratulations thank you as square is a singer songwriter. Performer based in Hamilton.

An 'inclusive and free art form composer Antonio Snchez lauds jazz, ahead of International Day
"I'm an Akhara move with you and us as jazz. Great, Nina Simone, one set Jez, not just music. It is a way of life. It is a way of being away of thinking written into the quest for human dignity, democracy and civil rights. The story of jazz is celebrated worldwide on thirty April with support of the UN cultural agency, UNESCO Mexican, jazz, composer and drummer. And Tony Sanchez the finest jazz, simply as freedom highlighting its inclusive power to bring different elements together transforming it into something greater the five time Grammy award winner who scored handwritten rita's Academy Award winning film Birdman is participating in the main commemorations for international jazz day held his year in Australia. Mr. Sanchez spoke to you n uses Antonio, LA Fuente. Well, I think jazz is very inclusive art form for some reason. It's nature. It's about bringing other elements and merging them on to the music. So in the beginning it came from, you know, completely glac music, and blues and soul. And then it's the improvisational part of started developing blood. It's a kind of music that can merge any kind of Jon Rao of music, and it turns out to be even greater and bigger than the individual parts. So when there's been many recessions history that have blended Jess with other kinds of world music, whereas it could be from to band music or. Brazilian music or African music or rock and roll. It doesn't matter to music that really can take any other kind of done. Right. And and and not only it can take it, but it benefits from it. And it develops more. And it it becomes richer as time goes by that what what is his sake. Jess to me that the finishing of Jess is freedom musician. It gives me the freedom of express myself exacly the way I'm feeling that day in that moment, which is is rare when you play political music, which I played classical piano for many years. You know, you're interpreting something and you have a certain amount of freedom. But it's it's usually you have to be a lot more strict with interpretation. Jazz. You can really change the course of the music in second just depending on how your you're feeling that they so you're I there's been times where I've been really sick very tired in pain where I have to perform and those dates are some of the best days sometimes because you can really channel your energy into the music that very moment. And sometimes what comes out is is something that you never thought you could do and also to meet death is freedom in the sense that it really can be ended is under the umbrella from privitization. But when I write for example, I I've not really paying attention to the fact that it has rock implants, or Jeff influence or Latin influence. Or anything? I just righted. I compose it, and it's all under the rela of Jess because it has the the vocabulary of improvisation and inclusion Anthony Europe anticipating home, the commemoration of internationally what those commemorations and what people can do to commemorate these. Well, the way it works is usually musicians from all over the world come together, and we play repertoire from all walks of Jess all John roster that are are inclusive in jest language, and we all perform with each other. So there's been times where I play with in a band where everybody's from a different country. But we're playing a very and like, for example. Last year two years ago, we played in Cuba, and we played a best mutual the very famous Latin standard, and it was a piano player from the Middle East or they route it was finger from Korea. And it was it was an American bass player and myself. So that kind of of of inclusion is what to me is the most interesting part about Jeff everybody learns language. Everybody knows it, and and we can all perform and and interact at the same time.
