A Conversation with Mark Bowden - St. Louis Magazine

“Talk to me,” Bowden would say, and the glazed reporter would launch a long, garbled account with as many branches as the Habsburg family tree. At the end, Bowden would say, “Well, here’s your story,” and describe a simple, compelling arc, and the reporter would resist—“No, no, you can’t do that without doing this, and this…”—and Bowden would say, firm as an Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor, “Yes, you can.” He understands story, knows what it takes to make the reader hold her breath and resent the second it takes to flick to the next page. His book Black Hawk Down recounted a history no one had documented, not even the Pentagon. It became a finalist for the National Book Award and was made into a movie, as was Bowden’s book Killing Pablo. You were born in St. I was born at St. Would you go into combat? Yes.

Nahko Bear and Medicine for the People One of the reasons I love being able to contribute to the cultural conversation is having the ability to tell the story and journey of the overlooked or undiscovered artist.

Prescription for the Soul: Nahko Bear and Medicine for the People

Which brings me to my recent rediscovery: Nahko Bear and Medicine for the People. At the beginning of the year a wonderful young artist Elizabeth Fairy Rathbone sent me a YouTube link to perhaps one of the most beautiful and stirring videos I've seen in a very long time. While the visuals were absolutely breathtaking, the song grabbed me at my very core.

I can still remember wanting to learn more about this indie-band with the strange name -- but then life, work and chaos happened. It wouldn't be for another six or seven months that yet another fairy by the name of Alice Frank of the website reintroduced me to the full spectrum of Nahko Bear's purpose, passion and mission. 1) How does it feel being the vessel for creating a new movement in music?

Les Maalouf, le Liban et la trompette orientale

Issu d'une famille de paysans des montagnes libanaises, il part étudier la musique orientale à Beyrouth, la capitale. Alors qu'il pratique la trompette au sein d'ensembles de musique classique arabe, il se rend compte que certains morceaux ne sont pas adaptés aux sonorités occidentales d'une trompette standard. À 23 ans, il part pour Paris où il suit des cours au conservatoire avec le grand Maurice André. Là, il collabore durant deux années avec les facteurs de cuivre Selmer afin de concevoir une trompette qui puisse s'adapter aux spécificités de la musique orientale. Du père au fils, une histoire de transmission Rapidement, Nassim perfectionne sa maîtrise de cette trompette orientale, adoptant un son clair, net, dont les trémolos peuvent parfois rappeler la sonorité de la zurna, sorte de bombarde très présente en Afrique du Nord.
