Compiling a list like this was no small feat. Trust us that it was not done in malice. We simply tried to assemble a list of those artists we feel have been both successful in their careers while also raising awareness toward gay rights issues and giving back to the community in which they belong. We also decided to rule out those artists whose sexuality was often rumored to be gay, but have never been confirmed by the artists themselves, take Morrissey or Liberace for example. We also decided to omit those musicians who appeared to flirt with being bisexual, but ultimately seem to consider themselves straight, such as David Bowie, or musicians who have talked in vague generalities about bisexuality but again ultimately seem clearly heterosexual, such as Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong. So here we are with a list honoring those out and proud men who have paved the way for many others like them and many more who will surely come. These are artists who risked their careers to be true to their sexuality, and who make us proud to be the gay and bi men that we are. Tiziano Ferro Italian pop singer Tiziano Ferro got his start like numerous American Idol finalists these days by participating in a talent show — the Sanremo Music Festival in While Ferro did not win the competition, he did make it to the 12 finalists, but more importantly he caught the attention of two producers in the audience — Alberto Salerno and Mara Maionch. That speaks to me more than anything.

Unfortunately, a quarter of the whole town had recently been devastated by fire; it was difficult for him to find suitable dwellings, and he was thus forced to pay a high rent. Nevertheless, shortly after his arrival, he brought his cousin Maria Barbara from Arnstadt, and on October 17th he married her at the small church in the picturesque little village of Dornheim. Maria Barbara came of a branch of the musical Bach family, her father being organist at Gehren. This success gave Bach the courage to put in a long and detailed report, proposing a complete renovation and improvement of the organ in the St Blasiuskirche.
The Council agreed to carry out the renovation and improvements, and Bach was given the task of supervising the work, for not only was he now a brilliant player, he had also become an expert on the construction of organs. Bach was apprehensive of the latter’s growing influence, in addition to the fact that his immediate superior was a Pietist. The Council had little option but to allow his departure.
However, the situation was concluded quite amicably and Bach was asked that he should continue to supervise the rebuilding of the St Blasiuskirche organ. This he did, and some time in he came over to inaugurate its first performance.
Our appreciation to Okezie Ihekwaba for contributing his invaluable collection of MP3s. History of Nigerian Music The music of Nigeria includes many kinds of Folk and popular music, some of which are known worldwide.

This instrument is not a native Indian instrument. It is a European instrument which was imported in the 19th century. It is a reed organ with hand pumped bellows. Although it is a relatively recent introduction, it has spread throughout the subcontinent. Today, it is used in virtually every musical genre except the south Indian classical. Although this is a European invention, it has evolved into a truly bi-cultural instrument. The keyboard is European, but it has a number of drone reeds which are particularly Indian.
European models came in both hand pumped and foot pumped models. The foot pumped models disappeared in India many years ago. This is because the foot pedals required one to sit in a chair; something which is unusual for an Indian musician. Also the only advantage of the foot model was that it freed both hands so that both melody and chords could be played. Indian music has no chords, so this was no advantage.
History In the 19th century, many Mariachi were roaming laborers moving from one hacienda to another, often more than the average laborer. With the revolution, however, many of the haciendas were forced to dismiss the mariachi, who then wandered from town to town singing songs corridos of revolutionary heroes and enemies, and carrying news from one place to another. The Mariachi took to playing in public venues for tips. One of the most popular of these venues was San Pedro Tlaquepaque in the state of Jalisco, a fashionable place for the residents of Guadalajara to spend the summer.

Aspects of Western musical performance The performer as interpreter Music as an interpretive art is a relatively recent phenomenon. In ancient societies, music plays a ritual role based on an oral tradition, and each performer in a sense interprets the tradition but, more importantly, renews it and transforms it through personal performance. Because composers for so many centuries were in a position to supervise the performances of their music, certain aspects of performance were not notated.
Notation has grown increasingly complex as the dissemination of printed music has become more widespread. Ultimately, the degree of judgment a performer may exercise is determined by the period in which the music was composed. For music of certain periods, even though their notational systems are incomplete and give few indications of how the music should sound beyond pitch and rhythm, musical scholarship has amassed much information concerning proper instrumentation , ornamentation , improvisation , and other traditional performing practices that determine to a large degree the sound and stylistic character of the music.
Performers as interpreters operate within a range of limitations imposed upon them by their understanding of the printed page, whatever knowledge may be available concerning the tradition that surrounds the music at hand, and the extent to which their personal tastes coincide with this information. Certain aspects of the musical taste of the past sometimes cease to be expressive and gradually disappear from usage.
Just as often, with the passage of time, performers tend to reassess the literature of previous ages and find renewed interest in practices that an earlier generation may have set aside. In any case, performers as interpreters speak to and with the tastes of their own time.

Instruments[ edit ] Important archaeological evidence of pre-Columbian Maya Aerophones has been found in locations such as Tabasco, Campeche, and Jaina. Clay whistles were found in Jaina from burial sites. These whistles have mouthpieces in quadrangular, rectangular, ellipsoidal and conical shapes. Several whistles are shaped like human faces, and some are shaped like animals representing Mayan deities.
Some were made of clay and were relatively short, and wooden trumpets were much longer. A common type of Mayan flute had a goitre chamber on the side which was used to deflect the air going into the instrument from taking a straight path.

The Complete List What we talk about when we talk about sex and rock ‘n roll is often dudes, the lusty front men and axe-grinders who, perhaps, joined the band in the first place for the purpose of scoring. But sexy women now dominate pop music, and the same mojo that’s stuffed Mick Jagger’s dressing room for time immemorial draws would-be groupies to female icons in the same way. It just shows that being sexy is about more than looks.

Girls were never a problem. Anybody who doesn’t believe guitars are chick magnets has obviously never strapped on a guitar before. We were at a better-than-average club closed mid ‘s and doing our normal thing. This particular night the bar was having a drawing for something, I can’t remember what. We were going to have a longer break than usual after one of our sets so they could use our PA to do the drawing.
I went to the bar and was getting a coke. Our drummer was standing there waiting on me, as he wanted to get in a game of pool while we waited for the drawing to get over. We went to the tables and he racked up the game. I, of course, looked up to see who was calling who an asshole. What I saw was what turned out to be the butt end of a pool cue coming at my face at rather high velocity.
It caught me on the bridge of my nose. I’m collapsed on the pool table, screaming, blood pouring from my face. The drummer tackled the guy swinging the cue as he was lining up for another whack at me.
