    Lisboa: Mário Lúcio diz que Bana é o eterno eco das nossas ilhas 03 Abril 2012

    “Bana é o ministro maior do que todos os ministros porque é eterno em cada um de nós e no eco das nossas ilhas”, afirmou o ministro da Cultura de Cabo Verde, Mário Lúcio numa mensagem lida pela Embaixadora de Cabo Verde na entrega do “Prémio Carreira Cabo Verde Música Awards”, num espectáculo celebrativo do seu octogésimo aniversário e de uma vida a cantar, no Coliseu dos Recreios, em Lisboa.

    Lisboa: Mário Lúcio diz que Bana é o eterno eco das nossas ilhas

    Tito Paris abriu o concerto e Bana encerrou-o com um espectacular dueto com o fadista português Carlos do Carmo, em “Beijo de Saudade”, de B.Leza, em português e crioulo.

    Foi considerado o “embaixador da morna em Portugal e da diáspora” e recebeu por isso, o prémio “Voz da Lusofonia” em nome de 35 cidades de língua portuguesa (UCCLA), espalhadas pelos quatro continentes do mundo.

    Bana, emocionado, disse não ter palavras para agradecer e recordou que Mário Lúcio, quando foi nomeado ministro lhe fora dizer pessoalmente, em sua casa: ”Bana já consegui!”, pois tal facto tinha sido uma premonição e um desejo que havia, antes, em Cabo Verde, formulado ao também artista e agora ministro da Cultura.

    O próprio ministro recordou, na mensagem lida pela embaixadora Madalena Neves, que “Cabo Verde tem vários memoráveis desde Eugénio Tavares a Amílcar Cabral (...) No dia em que me ofereceste uma camisa branca, eu fui a tua casa...disseste que a prenda que te daria, aos 80 anos, era eu ser ministro... És o maior de todos os ministros (...)”

    O “rei das mornas” como também é conhecido, recebeu ainda uma placa comemorativa, com o nome de todos os artistas que participaram neste evento, entregue por Luís Fortes, um dos impulsionadores desta homenagem, a viver na Holanda, e que foi o portador do “Prémio Carreira 2011”, atribuído em Cabo Verde.

    O artista, embora fragilizado, continua com uma voz potente e maravilhosa com que saudou o público com sete interpretações, e que o aplaudiu numa das principais catedrais da música em Lisboa.

    O espectáculo, longo, e acompanhado por uma orquestra sob a batuta do maestro Albertino Monteiro, Toi Vieira ao piano, Armando Tito à guitarra entre outros músicos, teve momentos altos com Lura a cantar ao desafio com Bana uma coladeira.

    Outro momento alto foi com o popular Jorge Neto. Um dueto que colocou o público dançar e uma audiência ao rubro com a sua interpretação “Rosinha”.

    Também uma das mornas, muito apreciada Portugal “Maria Barba” interpretada por um jovem, Jorge Batista da Silva, com voz de tenor, foi vivida com intensidade com muitas pessoas a entoá-la.

    A “performance” desta homenagem ao cantor Bana, que celebrou 80 anos 11 de Março, foi concretizada as vozes já célebres de Nancy Vieira, Celina Pereira, Titina, Leonel Almeida, Luís Fortes (Holanda) Coimbra, Dany Silva, José Rui de Pina (EUA). Também com o “entertainer” José Gonçalves ou “Juca” (Holanda) que protagonizou vários momentos de humor.

    O público era heterogéneo. Tinha personalidades cabo-verdianas e portuguesas além de outros estrangeiros que nesta altura do ano visitam Portugal e frequentam os concertos. Havia também jovens, descendentes de várias ilhas, que nunca tinham visto Bana ao vivo e que ali se deslocaram pela primeira vez.

    Bana que só cantou no fim do espetáculo (que começou com uma hora de atraso), protagonizou de forma natural, entre o povo, momentos comoventes, aquando da sua entrada ao atravessar a plateia, e mais tarde quando a voltou a pisar para subir ao palco. Foram muitas as pessoas que dele se abeiravam para o saudar, envolvendo-se com flores e bênçãos.

    Celina Pereira e João do Rosário, os apresentadores deste espectáculo, falaram do artista, natural de S. Vicente e residente em Portugal há mais de 30 anos, como um “pai” da música e a “rocha” (pela sua compleição física, alta e forte). Designaram-no para o público como a “voz que levou Cabo Verde a Portugal e ao mundo, cimentando a lusofonia”.

  • The Game Ordered to Pay Up in $91,000 Jewelry Case

    The Game loses another case this time for $90,999 after the rapper allegedly failed to pay for some expensive custom jewelry he commissioned over three years ago.

    An L.A. judge handed the order down last week demanding Game real name Jayceon Taylor settle his astronomical balance with jewelry company Lemmerman’s Inc. stat.

    According to the original complaint filed in L.A. last year Game ordered the following from 2007-2008:

    - a 14K white gold 36″ chain with white stones for $15,000

    - a 14K yellow gold 36″ chain with yellow stones for $15,000

    - a diamond stud for $4,000

    - a 14K white gold 5-row bracelet for $17,500

    - a 14K yellow gold 5-row bracelet for $17,500

    - two other gold “pieces” for $30,000

    Lemmerman’s claims Game paid off some of the jewelry a few years ago, he hasn’t made a payment since since and now owes the balance plus interest.

  • Gucci Mane Gets New Ice Cream Face Tattoo

    Covering his entire right cheek, Gucci's latest ink -- done by Atlanta's Tenth Street Tattoo owner Shane Willoughby, who twitpic'ed the above photo -- is an oversized ice-cream cone with three scoops of ice-cream highlighted with blue ink, the word "Brrr" across it and lightning bolts coming out of it. *Blank stare*

    What do you guys think of Gucci's new tat? Is it alright to rep your company this hard? Or should he go back to the asylum for this one? Leave your comments. Read more »
  • Kid Cudi Plans To 'Celebrate' DJ AM At The VMAs

    When Kid Cudi performs with Wale and the go-go group UCB, the VMA house band, at Sunday's awards show, he will take some time out to remember 2008 house-band member DJ AM, who died unexpectedly last month.

    "DJ AM was a good homie of mine, so we're going to do a little something for him," the VMA-nominated rapper told MTV News. "We doing this for AM. He had so much love."

    For Cudi's time at the Video Music Awards, he plans to make sure his party is all about AM. "We're going to be celebrating his life," he said. "You know what I mean? It's going to be a great night, and I don't know about everybody else, but I'm celebrating the VMAs in memory of Adam Goldstein."

    Wale spoke to MTV News after AM's death about picking up where Travis Barker and DJ AM left off last year. "AM was one of the greatest DJs I've ever seen play," he said. "Him and Travis had such a chemistry. [AM was] definitely one of the greater ears in music, and he's definitely underrated [as a DJ]."

    Wale and UCB will also be joined by Solange Knowles, Pitbull and 3OH!3 for a series of originals and covers that will definitely keep the VMA crowd rocking all night. If Wale's VMA rehearsal Thursday was any indication, those covers could include songs by Britney Spears, Coldplay and Kings of Leon.

  • Madonna booed in Bucharest for defending Gypsies

    BUCHAREST, Romania - At first, fans politely applauded the Roma performers sharing a stage with Madonna. Then the pop star condemned widespread discrimination against Roma, or Gypsies — and the cheers gave way to jeers.

    The sharp mood change that swept the crowd of 60,000, who had packed a park for Wednesday night's concert, underscores how prejudice against Gypsies remains deeply entrenched across Eastern Europe.

    Despite long-standing efforts to stamp out rampant bias, human rights advocates say Roma probably suffer more humiliation and endure more discrimination than any other people group on the continent.




    Sometimes, it can be deadly: In neighboring Hungary, six Roma have been killed and several wounded in a recent series of apparently racially motivated attacks targeting small countryside villages predominantly settled by Gypsies.

    "There is generally widespread resentment against Gypsies in Eastern Europe. They have historically been the underdog," Radu Motoc, an official with the Soros Foundation Romania, said Thursday.

    Roma, or Gypsies, are a nomadic ethnic group believed to have their roots in the Indian subcontinent. They live mostly in southern and eastern Europe, but hundreds of thousands have migrated west over the past few decades in search of jobs and better living conditions.

    Romania has the largest number of Roma in the region. Some say the population could be as high as 2 million, although official data put it at 500,000.

    Until the 19th century, Romanian Gypsies were slaves, and they've gotten a mixed response ever since: While discrimination is widespread, many East Europeans are enthusiastic about Gypsy music and dance, which they embrace as part of the region's cultural heritage.

    That explains why the Roma musicians and a dancer who had briefly joined Madonna onstage got enthusiastic applause. And it also may explain why some in the crowd turned on Madonna when she paused during the two-hour show — a stop on her worldwide "Sticky and Sweet" tour — to touch on their plight.

    "It has been brought to my attention ... that there is a lot of discrimination against Romanies and Gypsies in general in Eastern Europe," she said. "It made me feel very sad."

    Thousands booed and jeered her.

    A few cheered when she added: "We don't believe in discrimination ... we believe in freedom and equal rights for everyone." But she got more boos when she mentioned discrimination against homosexuals and others.

    "I jeered her because it seemed false what she was telling us. What business does she have telling us these things?" said Ionut Dinu, 23.

    Madonna did not react and carried on with her concert, held near the hulking palace of the late communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.

    Her publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said Madonna and other had told her there were cheers as well as jeers.

    "Madonna has been touring with a phenomenal troupe of Roma musicians who made her aware of the discrimination toward them in several countries so she felt compelled to make a brief statement," Rosenberg said in an e-mail. "She will not be issuing a further statement."

    One Roma musician said the attitude toward Gypsies is contradictory.

    "Romanians watch Gypsy soap operas, they like Gypsy music and go to Gypsy concerts," said Damian Draghici, a Grammy Award-winner who has performed with James Brown and Joe Cocker.

    "But there has been a wave of aggression against Roma people in Italy, Hungary and Romania, which shows me something is not OK," he told the AP in an interview. "The politicians have to do s omething about it. People have to be educated not to be prejudiced. All people are equal, and that is the message politicians must give."

    Nearly one in two of Europe's estimated 12 million Roma claimed to have suffered an act of discrimination over the past 12 months, according to a recent report by the Vienna-based EU Fundamental Rights Agency. The group says Roma face "overt discrimination" in housing, health care and education.

    Many do not have official identification, which means they cannot get social benefits, are undereducated and struggle to find decent jobs.

    Roma children are more likely to drop out of school than their peers from other ethnic groups. Many Romanians label Gypsies as thieves, and many are outraged by those who beg or commit petty crimes in Western Europe, believing they spoil Romania's image abroad.

    In May 2007, Romanian President Traian Basescu was heard to call a Romanian journalist a "stinky Gypsy" during a conversation with his wife. Romania's anti-discrimination board criticized Basescu, who later apologized.

    Human rights activists say the attacks in Hungary, which began in July 2008, may be tied to that country's economic crisis and the rising popularity of far-right vigilantes angered by a rash of petty thefts and other so-called "Gypsy crime." Last week, police arrested four suspects in a nightclub in the eastern city of Debrecen.

    Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia also have been criticized for widespread bias against Roma.

    Madonna's outrage touched a nerve in Romania, but it seems doubtful it will change anything, said the Soros Foundation's Motoc.

    "Madonna is a pop star. She is not an expert on interethnic relations," he said.
