Sathish Bala continues to inspire next generation of South Asians

Posted on 11 May 2016 by admin

Staff Reporter

Toronto

desiFEST, North America’s leading outdoor South Asian Music concert will celebrate its tenth year and will feature a star studded line up of emerging and established musical artists and performers at Yonge-Dundas Square on May 28, 2016 with 12 hours of non-stop musical entertainment. The creator of this festival is Sathish Bala who founded this grassroots organization to foster and grow the large South Asian Arts Community in Toronto and across Canada. The organization also helps to unify, create awareness and develop new showcase opportunities for artists and has helped hundreds of artists and bands to gain exposure, collaborate on new music and strengthen the community.

 Bala says desiFEST (www.desiFEST.com) also helps to build local arts communities, inspire youth and support arts across Canada.

 “It is important for us to continue evolving the original concept of desiFEST. Ten years ago, there was a need to find and showcase desi urban artists and today there is an equally important need to help in nurturing, educating and building bridges for our community. That is a future I look forward to with desiFEST,” says Bala.

 Besides the May 28 event, desiFEST will also host She Rocks – All Female Lineup on Wednesday May 25, Open Scream Night on Thursday, May 26, Discussion on all aspects of the South Asian Music Industry in North America on Friday, May 27.

 When was desiFEST established and why?

We started desiFEST in 2007 to meet a growing need for 2nd generattion South Asian youth, making music that blended EAST and WEST and didn’t have a platform to showcase their music. While we had a feeling of how ‘big’ this concert can get, we had no idea that over 40k+ fans will come and support the artist each year!

 What is the mandate of the organization?

Our mandate is to inspire the next generation of South Asian musicians through the creation of innovative music platforms.

 Why did you feel there was a need for such an organization in Toronto?

10 years ago, you either sang Bollywood songs or didn’t. The reality was that we have a lot of South Asian artists who needed a platform and we didn’t have one. Too often, our music was lost in private parties and wedding receptions. We wanted to elevate the music and create global awareness for Canadian artists.

 Can you tell us the selection process for musicians?

The process looks at current progression of the artist submitting to play at desiFEST. Amateur artists are anyone without a video or music out and most likely performing cover songs. New artists usually have an EP or a few songs with at least one music video. The established artists have been in the music business for over 5 years. With 25 slots available, we review each submission to look at the fit.

 What do we expect this year?

More of the awesome desiFEST show and some surprises for the 10th.

 Why the need for an all-female concert this year?

Over the last few years, we have seen an increase the number of music musicians and we wanted to celebrate it more than just desiFEST. To encourage more female artists to come up, we felt that in addition to desiFEST, a unique show spotlighting female music would open more doors and break stereotypes.

 What has been your biggest challenge?

Encouraging our artists’ community to believe in themselves and also encouraging the community to support and celebrate our musicians the same way we celebrate our academic success stories.

 Which cities in Canada has desiFEST been organized over the years?

We have been in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver the first 5 years.

 (desiFEST takes place Saturday, May 28, 2016 from 10 AM – 10 PM at Yonge-Dundas Square)

Bollywood actors get Hollywood films because of agents, not talent: Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Posted on 11 May 2016 by admin

Nawazud din Siddiqui is elated that his upcoming film, the Anurag Kashyap-directed Raman Raghav 2.0, is being showcased at the Cannes Film Festival.

Nawaz admits that it was tough to get under the skin of a contact killer — a role he portrays in Raman Raghav 2.0 — and that it feels good to have the film shown at a prestigious platform like Cannes.

“It feels good that you have worked so hard and completed the film in 20 days and now it’s getting showcased in Cannes,” Siddiqui tells Firstpost.

This is his eighth film to be screened at Cannes, but Nawaz feels the festival appreciation Indian films receive should translate into box office success as well, when they release in theatres. In fact, Nawaz maintains that making a film just for festivals is like cheating the producers.

“There are films like Gangs of Wasseypur (parts one and two) and The Lunchbox, which were showcased in Cannes and even earned money when they got a theatrical release here. These films didn’t have any class division. They were commercially viable festival films. I feel bad when a film is appreciated in festivals but fails at the box office. It is a bit scary. For example, my film Miss Lovely was highly appreciated in many festivals but didn’t work at the box office.

If you see, there are number of films like this, that are critically acclaimed at festivals but fail commercially.

When you make a film only for the festival circuit, you are betraying the producer, I feel,” Nawaz says.

Of late, a slew of Bollywood actors like Irrfan Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, among others, are being seen in American television shows and Hollywood films. Ask Nawaz if he too aspires to join the bandwagon, and if he believes his stature on the festival circuit will help him bag international projects, and he says: “By international films, you mean Hollywood. Actors get work in Hollywood not because of their talent, but because of the agents they keep there to get them roles. Those who have got work, they’ve had agents there for almost 10 years. I haven’t kept any agent as of now. It has become overrated that an actor is working in Hollywood.

Let’s face it, being a Slytherin wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be.

Without the obvious link to you know who, there was the Bloody Baron turning up to ruin every dinner like a drunk aunt, the fact that Draco’s father had to hear about EVERYTHING and the obvious favouritism issue meaning the Hogwarts’ hourglass could show Slytherin got the most house points at the end of the year but then Dumbledore would come along and award 100 points to Gryffindor. Yep, it was a hard-knock life for a Slytherin.

But Slytherin’s Quidditch Captain, Marcus Flint, ain’t about that life anymore. If you’re all out of memory potion, he’s pictured above.

George Takei speaks out on Doctor Strange whitewashing Anyway, Digital Spy tracked down Jamie Lee Yeates who portrayed Marcus Flint in the first two Harry Potter films and he is hot AF now.

Pop star Kesha releases first single after label dispute

Posted on 05 May 2016 by admin

Pop star Kesha released her first new music in three years on Friday after losing a legal bid earlier this month to scrap her recording contract with Sony Music and producer Dr. Luke, whom the singer had accused of sexual assault.

Kesha, 29, teamed up with DJ Zedd on the single “True Colors,” an electro-pop ballad released through the singer’s label RCA Records, an unit of Sony Corp’s Sony Music Entertainment, and Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records, to which Kesha is still signed to.

Zedd added on Twitter, “Just to clarify: We didn’t use any loop holes. Kemosabe / RCA gave us permission to release this song!” Earlier this year, Kesha appealed a New York Supreme Court justice’s decision to refuse to release her from a six-album contract with Sony, after the singer filed a sexual assault lawsuit against Dr. Luke in 2014. Representatives for Sony Music and Dr. Luke did not immediately respond to Reuters’ requests for comment on Friday. The producer has previously denied Kesha’s allegations f rape and emotional abuse. The justice found in February that Kesha, who had not released new music since 2013′s “C’Mon” and “Crazy Kids” from her “Warrior” album, was free to record for Sony with other producers, without interference from Dr. Luke. The singer said the decision was akin to slavery. The case sparked the #FreeKesha campaign on social media and a petition asking Sony to release Kesha from her contract.

The singer also earned support from other artists such as Taylor Swift, Adele and Lady Gaga. “True Colors” features Kesha singing lyrics such as “We’ve escaped our capture.
