New York Fashion Week Fall 2012: Marc Jacobs ~
Jacobs is still my fav! He paid homage to eccentricity, with an energetic and sophisticated collection full of luxe fabrics, sculptural shapes, and some of the biggest, craziest fur hats imaginable, courtesy of brilliant British milliner Stephen Jones!!! Watch…
Halfway through NY Fashion Week, fiercer fitted looks, military shapes, leather, python prints — NEW YORK — It’s time for the well-heeled women who shop from New York Fashion Week runways to pull themselves up by their bootstraps — preferably Christian Louboutins — and carry off clothes rooted in strength, confidence and even toughness. Even glamorous Victoria Beckham, rarely seen without stilettos on, sent some of her models down the runway Sunday in motorcycle boots. (They were indeed Louboutins). +1 Alexander Wang…
Die Antwoord…the hottest rave/rap band in the world…straight from Africa…Cape Town to be exact. Here they are performing ‘I Fink U Freaky’ on Letterman. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, their videos are the most over the top, offensively brilliant productions ever. Look some of them up on youtube!
Young African Invents Touch Screen Medical Tablet:
Here’s an example of African innovation at its finest.
Arthur Zang, a 24 year-old Cameroonian engineer, has invented the Cardiopad, a touch screen medical tablet that enables heart examinations such as the electrocardiogram (ECG) to be performed at remote, rural locations while the results of the test are transferred wirelessly to specialists who can interpret them. The device spares African patients living in remote areas the trouble of having to travel to urban centers to seek medical examinations.
Los Angeles Dance Festival to debut in a busy April:
With the goal of highlighting local dance, Diavolo Dance Theater and Brockus Project are co-producing a new Los Angeles Dance Festival, April 14 and 15, at the Brewery Arts Complex. So far, 16 contemporary dance companies have signed up to participate, including Barak Marshall’s dance company, Oni Dance, Kybele Dance Theater and Lula Washington Dance Theatre.
The festival is geared not only for audiences but also for local dancers — especially college students — looking to become better acquainted with the area’s professional companies.
Happy to see the dance scene in LA expand! Here’s a piece by LA’s Diavolo Dance Theater. I like them a lot.
Drumming and dancing to the rhythm of the rainforest coming to The Hawth — London based KASAI MASAI are an African band that give an urban twist to music that can be heard in Congo’s most isolated villages. They’ll be playing at Hawth (south of London) on March 17, 8PM!
Hardcore??? Nothing is as hardcore as death metal- but apparently “the hardest hardcore is Angolan hardcore”. As an aftermath to the bombings of the Angolan city Huambo, back in 1998, the death metal scene attracted a crowd of metal heads dedicated to the music genre which spoke of the previous battles and wars experienced in the country -“a scream of revolt”- is what hardcore death metal is all about in Angola.
The documentary film Death Metal Angola is directed by Jeremy Xido and produced by CABULA6 and Coalition Films, it’s about the first ever national rock concert in Angola, a project aimed to collect and expand rock music nation wise, covering the contemporary rock music scene. I can’t wait to see the complete version planned for release in 2012.
Death Metal, direct from Angola…
