    » Colombia's Disco Fuentes label is probably one of the most well-known record companies in South America. From the 1960s, the label pumped out funky cumbias, porro and such irresistible salsa that Cubans often said that they felt at home in Colombia; if I spin a Colombian track when I am manning the DJ decks, a dancer will come up and ask me which Cuban band I'm playing.

    Life, Harry Rolnick, Published on 31/08/2017

    » The great cellist Pablo Casals gave the second-best description of the cello. "The cello," he said, "is like a beautiful woman who has not grown older but younger with time, more slender, more supple, more graceful." The greatest description of the cello contained no words at all, and this wordless description is what Bangkok will experience on Sept 2.

    Life, Harry Rolnick, Published on 23/03/2017

    » 'The only reason I'm famous," said composer Johannes Brahms, the arrogant pride of Viennese music in the 1880s, "is because other people don't respect the very best things. Like Mozart's piano concertos!"

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 23/11/2016

    » Hardcore gamer or not, the name Call Of Duty -- publisher Activision's phenomenally popular first-person military shooter game franchise -- is one that you have most likely heard about. Released annually around the holiday season since 2005, Call Of Duty has been a household name for video games for the last decade, and is arguably one of the most influential titles of the modern video game era, despite having only minimal variations in its overall gameplay across the dozens of games with its name.

    X-Men: Apocalypse doesn't mark the spot

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 20/05/2016

    » Despite being directed by the man who gave us the original X-Men and X2, a star-studded cast, and two beloved prequels, X-Men: Apocalypse manages to disappoint. In its attempt to both provide a satisfying ending for the X-Men: First Class trilogy as well as set up the new generation of X-Men (for future movies), the film has neglected pacing, plot and action, becoming in the process an incoherent mishmash of soulless special effects and A-list actors. As likeable as the new X-Men are, I doubt many will be looking forward to any of their future films, if this is the kind of stories we can expect.

Reissue would be perhaps the wrong word really because the producers of the new release, Tambolero, have gone deep into the original sessions and then added new vocals, some from Toto's granddaughters, and instrumentation, giving the original music more texture.
