BADA is a black noise/psych rock Swedish collective devoted to free improvisation and loud contaminations, the sinister creature of Anna Von Hausswolff, Hannes Nilsson, David Sabel, Filip Neyman and Gianluca Grasselli: The sounds of BADA come from various and oppugnant directions: drone landscapes, pipe organs dissonances, tribal rhythms, obscure sliding guitars and deep distorted bass. It is from these diverse sources that the process of creativity keeps persistently mutating. Only few traces of BADA are available on the web therefore the only way to reach their music is through the live experience, a profane and unholy communion where the volumes of the instruments will be high to make sounds resonate through your bodies. An act which reunites the essential bond between music and physical worlds.Anna Von Hausswolff, the most prominent name fo BADA, has spent the majority of time since the release of her last albums ?The Miraculous? and ?Dead Magic? touring the world and playing special shows in very special settings such as the Lincoln Cathedral or Montreux Jazz Festival opening for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds as well as headline tours, including China. She also lend vocals to the Royal Swedish Opera House and more recently to the Nobel Prize banquet and the worldly well-known Yann Tiersen.
Jazz is a uniquely American art form, one of America's great contributions to not only musical culture, but world culture, with each generation of musicians applying new levels of creativity that take the music in unexpected directions that defy definition, category, and stagnation. Now you can learn the basics and history of this intoxicating genre in an eight-lecture series that is as free-flowing and original as the art form itself. You'll follow the evolution of jazz from its beginnings in the music and dancing of the antebellum plantations to its morphing into many shapes as its greatest innovators gave us ragtime, the blues, the swing music of the big band era, boogie-woogie, and big band blues. You'll follow the rise of modern jazz in all of its many forms, including bebop, cool, modal, free, and fusion jazz. And you'll learn how the course of jazz was changed by key technological innovations, such as the invention of the microphone, which allowed smaller-voiced singers like Bing Crosby or Mel Torme to share a limelight once reserved for the bigger voices of stars like Bessie Smith or Al Jolson. Beginning the story on those antebellum plantations, Professor Messenger reveals how the "cakewalks" of slave culture gave birth to a dance craze at the end of the 19th century that was ignorant of its own humble roots. And he explores the irony of the minstrel shows, which derived from Southern beliefs of black cultural inferiority yet eventually spawned a musical industry that African-American musicians would dominate for decades to come. As a bonus, the lectures are also very entertaining, with Professor Messenger frequently turning to his piano to illustrate his musical points, often with the help of guest artists.
