    Sounds from Soweto

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 08/03/2016

    » I first saw the all-singing, all-dancing Mahotella Queens back in the late 1980s, when they were on their epic tour of Europe, Asia, and the Americas, with their incomparable backing band, Makgona Tsohle, and leader singer, Simon "Mahlathini" Nkabinde. After years of having their movements restricted in their own country, they found themselves celebrated all over the world for their irresistible mbaqanga music, a genre they helped create in South Africa's "townships" in the 1960s.

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 09/11/2015

    A life full of changes in rhythm

    Life, Published on 13/04/2015

    » When Philip Glass was 15, his father, who owned a record store in Baltimore, put him in charge of buying classical albums. Glass was then a precocious freshman at the University of Chicago and taking the first steps on the path to becoming a composer. When he learned of a new recording of the complete Schoenberg string quartets played by the Juilliard String Quartet, he ordered four copies. Aghast, his father asked if he was trying to put him out of business. To teach his son a lesson, he told him to put the recordings of these atonal chamber works on the shelves with the more mainstream classical records and report back when the last copy had been sold. That took seven years. The lesson Glass learned? "I can sell anything if I have enough time."

    B Magazine, Ezra Kyrill Erker, Published on 18/08/2013

    » Among the stars arriving for Bangkok's inaugural Sonic Bang festival on Saturday is one band that is no stranger to Southeast Asia. Frequent visitors to the region, Placebo have brought their reflective, gender-twisting or drug-exploring lyrics, their androgynous look, their dark, melodic instrumentals around the world, and now to Bangkok for the third time.

    By the book, Or perhaps not

    Life, Published on 12/11/2012

    » So you've written a gazillion-selling, scandalous or much-adored book. Perhaps you've created a series and drawn it out well beyond its natural conclusion and have wrung out every drop of profit possible. Perhaps your work has become part of the pop-culture firmament, the subject of a craze and no small amount of scorn and satire.
