Bob Marley: The Life and Legacy of Reggae's Glo...

We don't have education, we have inspiration; if I was educated I would be a damn fool. (Bob Marley) "If there remains any magic, it is music." (Bob Marley) In terms of raw popularity, Bob Marley sold over 20 million albums in a brief career that took him around the globe as, "[T]he first international superstar from the so-called third world", but the journey from anonymity within his own culture to reigning as, "[T]he defining figure of Jamaican music" was a circuitous and dangerous one. After leaving home at age 14, Marley's street skills helped him, "[G]ain a foothold in Jamaica's chaotic music industry while skillfully navigating politically partisan violence that abounded in Kingston through the 70s." His exaltation of the reggae form, couched in the Rastafari, became an instrument of order and a haven for otherwise directionless youth in Kingston and other communities of Jamaica. Beginning with the more lighthearted ska style, Marley drew fellow Jamaicans as kindred spirits by adding social commentary to the lyrics. As these popular dance hits were infused with songs of faith, the weightier genre of reggae emerged. Marley would become, "[O]ne of the genre's most beloved artists." To the outer world, he is by far the most iconic individual associated with the form and the era. As the merely distractive elements of ska fell away, "[I]nto the slower, bass-heavy reggae sound", the accompanying depth of his message lifted him above being a mere entertainer, and his fellow Jamaican youth turned to him for social truths. 1.

"Hidden People" is an apt title for this long-anticipated debut CD from husband-and-wife duo Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman. They have been lynchpins of the UK's burgeoning folk-acoustic revival over the last two decades - but a case, perhaps, of "always the bridesmaid and never the bride."Now, at last, it's their turn to burst out from the shadows of their siblings and former musical partners to make a big noise in their own right. This bold and superbly - crafted album includes eight self-penned songs, one traditional arrangement and a poignant cover version. With Kathryn's sublime voice and effortless delivery, Sean's masterly guitar arrangements and the sonic quality of the production this CD, this is one the most eagerly awaited modern folk albums of the year.The esteem in which they are held is reflected in the list of artists who queued up to make a contribution: Sean's famous brother Seth Lakeman, the award-winning Irish singer Cara Dillon (who is married to another brother, musician and producer Sam Lakeman), Levellers' lead singer Mark Chadwick, veteran folk troubadour Dave Burland, singer-songwriter Jim Moray, Megson's Stu Hanna, Caroline Herring from the USA and Greta Bondesson from Sweden's sister trio Baskery.Steeped in the English tradition, Yorkshire-born Kathryn, 37, was a teenage sensation in a duo with Kate Rusby. They made the Folk Album of the Year in 1995, "Kate Rusby & Kathryn Roberts", and Kathryn also won the first-ever BBC Young Folk Award as a solo singer.They both teamed up with the three Lakeman brothers to form the folk -pop "supergroup", Equation, which was signed to Warner Music's cool 'Blanco Y Negro' label. Rusby and Seth then left to begin successful solo careers.Equation, with Kathryn and Sean at the head, spent more than five years touring in the USA and performed at top venues from New York to Los Angeles. They played the legendary Newport Folk Festival, the Golden Gate Festival in San Francisco, the Strawberry Festival in California's Yosemite National Park, the Rock 'N' Roll hall of fame in Cleveland and concerts from Arizona to Seattle, Chicago to Denver, Boston to El Paso. "We must have seen more of America than most Americans" says Sean." An incredible experience and a unique musical education."Meanwhile, Seth Lakeman wrote his seminal "Kitty Jay" album, which led to a Mercury Music Prize nomination - and a musical roller coaster ride. Sean was at his elbow, playing guitar as Seth achieved international fame with subsequent albums. Gold and silver albums sit on Sean's walls, as producer of Seth's groundbreaking CD's, one of which (Poor Man's Heaven) became the rarest of things, a folk album in the Top Ten.Like Kathryn, Sean's musical pedigree is formidable. After emerging on the English folk scene as one of 'The Lakeman Brothers' he studied jazz and contemporary music at Leeds College of Music. But he learned more by staying at the Yorkshire home of family friend and guitar maestro, Chris Newman, and touring the UK's folk clubs with veteran folk fiddler Tom McConville.Kathryn and Sean have had a low profile as a duo over the last eight years. As Sean toured the world with Seth's band, Kathryn has been busy at their hideaway Dartmoor home raising twin girls, Poppy and Lily, who are now nearly five. Now, finally, they have found breathing space to produce "Hidden People" for the Navigator label and will be heard performing live throughout the summer and autumn at festivals and gigs.Kathryn's vocals - lush, sultry and faultless - are the signature of the album. She has an extraordinary range, from husky to soaring. She also provides all the piano, keyboards, flute and woodwind. Sean contributes six-string guitar, mandolin, bass guitar, bouzouki and of all things "wooden ruler bass."The sonic quality of this CD is testimony to Sean's impressive production and recording skills and demonstrates why other folk artists and bands like the Levellers have beaten a path to his door to employ his services as a producer.The tracks on "Hidden People" range from Kathryn's haunting lead vocals, to rousing a cappella harmony, mellow and heart-rending piano ballads, foot-tapping rockabilly beats, tunes with a world-music tinge and full-on folk-rock. Yet the core of the album is good old-fashioned story-telling."These are stories, first and foremost," says Kathryn, but she warns, "My home-life is so 'roses round the cottage door', that I tend to prefer music with an edginess, so some of the tracks on the album are quite dark and brooding, to say the least." The messages and meanings behind these songs belong to the "Hidden People."

Carl Orff devoted much of his life to the development of a philosophy of 'Music for Children', based on his belief that music is the natural outcome of speech, rhythm and movement. His ideas and pioneering work have had a major influence on music and dance education throughout the world and today that work continues under the guidance of leading teachers and educators in many countries. The five basic German volumes of 'Music for Children' by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman were published between 1950 and 1954. Editions have since been published in Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Estonia, France, Ghana, Great Britain (including a special Welsh edition), Greece, Italy, Japan, Korea, Latin-America, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan and the USA. In 1952 the first edition in translation appeared an English language adaptation by Doreen Hall and Arnold Walter for their Canadian and American students. A few years later, Margaret Murray independently developed a version (1957-1966), essentially to fulfil the needs of United Kingdom teachers. Inevitably the considerable growth of Orff-Schulwerk in the United States led to the publication of the American Edition (1977) to satisfy the requirements of a different educational system and national heritage. Orff-Schulwerk: Music for Children has proved itself to be a stimulating source of material for music teaching. Carl Orff's fundamental educational ideas have revitalized music education in nursery schools, at all levels of primary and secondary education and in special music schools, based on the concepts that: - music, dance and language are inter-related and animated through rhythm. - when children discover, invent, improvise and compose, their experience of music is intensified. These creative activities are complementary to those of interpreting and listening to music. - all who take part are encouraged to contribute, not only vocally but also instrumentally. - the Orff approach to music education is many sided; it is concerned with practical music-making, it provides fundamental experiences and it lays the foundation for a comprehensive musical training. - movement games and activities for body awareness in space, time and flow, lead to movement improvisation and dance forms. - music and dance have been notated in many different ways in history. Various ways of writing down sounds and music, as well as playing from and interpreting different kinds of sources are being explored. Today, countless teachers and institutions are using these ideas. More and more teachers look for ways of involving their students in active music making. In particular, they seek to challenge their pupils' creativity by the use of music, dance and speech - as media of human expression - as a foundation of all education. A prerequisite for work in Orff-Schulwerk is the artistic and pedagogical training of teachers. The Orff Institute was founded in 1961 as a Department of the 'Mozarteum', in Salzburg, Austria. Training offered includes a four-year diploma course, a two-year post-graduate course, and a one-year-course in English. At the opening of the Orff Institute in Salzburg in 1963, Carl Orff ended his speech with a quotation from Schiller: 'I have done my part, now do yours.' That challenge has been taken up by teachers worldwide. Murray Edition English adaption, with additional material, by Margaret Murray. Besed on, and containing all the rhythmic and instrumental material from the main five volumes of the original German edition. Contents of this fourth volume: Songs and pieces using the full range of the aeolian, dorian and phrygian modes. Accompaniements are founded on drone bass with the later addition of simple chords. Instrumentation: voice, recorder and percussion
