first_imgAt the recent closing of the “Recovery” exhibition at the Liberia National Museum, it was a scene full of the finest work of arts on display, ranging from painting to handicraft.  The beautiful works attracted the eyes of the audience and some could hardly hold back their amazement and enthusiasm.Before the civil war Liberian arts were known as “Classical” because of the artistic abilities of its artist and were widely recognized.  To that extent, Liberian art was a powerful tool in drawing the country to unity.According to Maisha “Mama” Shabu, wife of Omar El “Baba” Shabu, headlining artist of the “Recovery” exhibition, Liberians must bear in mind that art was once an influence and has been fostering public awareness ever since. She said Art enhances and changes life for the better.“Recently, we all witnessed the crucial role that art played in reducing the alarm and fear induced by Ebola,” she said, adding, “if art is taken for granted people will continue to forget who they are and allow others to come in and use them as slaves.”She said further that the positive and political transformation towards a better and unifying society has its root in art. “It is our hope that the public will add this as a new meaning and develop it in some part of their life from here,” she said. “This exhibition reminds our people that we have a precious and rich culture. The idea of the exhibition is to spark recovery and make you think positively about your country; it is very important that we restore and uplift our culture through arts.”Several other Liberian artists presented their works at the Recovery exhibition, which was staged at the National Museum in Monrovia from December 1, 2014 to January 31, 2015.  They include Lawson Sworh, Mohammed Bah, Marcus Benn Yancy and Isaac Dubor.Baba Shabu said that Liberia once had very excellent artwork. “But where are they now?” he asked, adding, “They are in Paris, USA, Germany and around the world. We want to bring back these excellent pieces through arts exhibition and training young artist.”Speaking at the exhibition was a young musician known only as Prince, who said that he is happy to witness first-hand traditional Liberian arts.Also present was Ian Yhap producer of the ‘Jue Kpeh’ Ebola awareness song. He said that the recovery exhibition would help to create a sense of unity among Liberians, emphasizing a stronger meaning of cultural identity.He added that arts are heavily influenced by the cultural, moral and spiritual lives of our people, playing a significant role in social cohesion.“We want more people to come at the Museum and see the beauty of their country arts,” Mama Shabu said. “Eventually they will begin to see something that will touch their hearts and create a passion for it. We appreciate all Liberians that attended the exhibition.  And to those that made donations, we say many thanks and hope you would continue to support creative works, training of young artists and materials for graphic use in Shabuta, Gbarnga,” she said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgHue and CryFor a period in the late 1980s, Hue and Cry presented slices of pure pop pleasure which pretty much saw them played to death on every radio with an on/off switch.In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Hue And Cry’s platinum selling album, Remote, (and it’s acoustic counterpart Bitter Suite) Hue And Cry will be touring as their stripped acoustic duo with Pat and Greg Kane, bringing you Remote Stripped.The brothers appear at Letterkenny’s An Grianan Theatre net Wednesday, April 16th Donegal Daily has two tickets for the show and all you have to do is to answer the question at the bottom of this article and sending it to [email protected] including your name, address and contact number.The performances will focus on the songs of both of the albums albums, stripped down to their emotional, acoustic core as well as a few surprises along the way.Hue And Cry burst onto the UK music scene in the late 1980’s with the outstandingly successful albums, Seduced and Abandoned and Remote.This period saw the band produce some of their most auspicious hit singles such as Labour Of Love, Violently, and Looking For Linda. Their award winning style of intellectual, yet appealing pop songs, fused with their unique brand of soulfulness gave rise to their continued success as the band advanced full steam ahead into the nineties, releasing acclaimed work which includes the chart-storming Top Ten album Stars Crash Down.A move away from the pop mainstream to concentrate on other projects saw Pat and Greg Kane make a triumphant return with the much applauded Open Soul which boasted an energetic and synergetic combination of the band’s classic ‘stripped down’ production.Extensive UK touring supported the release of Open Soul and February 2009 saw the release of a definitive selection of the band’s earlier work including hits, rare mixes, extended versions and B sides, entitled The Collection. The end of 2009 saw the release of Xmasday which contained a vibrant mixture of brand new Hue And Cry songs along with some classic songs and seasonal favourites.2012 marked the highly anticipated release of the studio album entitled Hot Wire. A collection of stunning early New Orleans funk inspired songs, from the brothers collective love of early 70’s and Funk and Soul Music.The result is a musical merge of complex melodies, harmonies and funk rhythms with a style that remains distinctive to Hue And Cry. The album contains sharp political and social commentary that is as relevant and poignant today, as it was with the release of the politically laced Labour Of Love in 1987. From reflections on the struggle of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in Duty To The Debtor to the loss of military lives within I Can Have It All. Hue And Cry have performed alongside some of the most prolific names in the business including U2, James Brown, Van Morrison, Madonna and Al Green, as well as playing to thousands on their own headline tours.Pat and Greg are very much looking forward to engaging with fans once again on tour in 2014.
