Message To Love: The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970

Regie: Murray Lerner, USA, 1997, 127 min.

 

Message to Love is a feature documentary film of the Isle of Wight Festival 1970. The film unsparingly, often comically depicts the myriad problems associated with the famously chaotic festival including gate-crashing, numerous crowd incursions onto the stage, Kris Kristofferson being booed offstage, and head promoter Rikki Farr's rants against the audience, which only intensified as the situation deteriorated: "We put this festival on, you bastards, with a lot of love! We worked for one year for you pigs! And you wanna break our walls down and you wanna destroy it? Well you go to hell!" This and two other brief dialogue extracts from the film were later sampled in the Oasis track "Fuckin' in the Bushes", from the album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants.

In addition, several near-riots occurred over the price of tickets, as well as during several of the performances that took place over the weekend, especially Jimi Hendrix's last billed performance in England.

Performances in order of appearance in the film

  • Jimi Hendrix: "Message to Love"

The Resurrection of Victor Jara

Regie: John Travers, 2015, Chile/France/USA, 89 min, English, Spanish with English subtitles

 

A hail of bullets in 1973 could not silence singer-songwriter legend Victor Jara, who has powerfully reemerged more than 40 years after his untimely death. His friends and fellow musicians, family, and some of today’s most prominent artists have joined together to explain why Victor remains relevant today.

Victor was the heart and soul of the South American movement known as Nueva Canción (New Song) of the 1960s and early 1970s, which embraced issues of justice, peace and freedom. He took a stand for these issues and paid for it with his life. Following his death, most of his music disappeared from public view, in the face of severe political and cultural repression.

The film explores this period of resistance leading to the eventual reemergence of Victor’s music and his resilience in the collective memory.

Director John Travers is the son of novelist Robert Travers and half-brother of singer Mary Travers (of folk trio Peter, Paul & Mary), John Travers began making films at the age of eleven. At University of Bridgeport film school, Travers won the coveted Student Academy Award for his 44-minute thesis film, JENNY. He has edited 16 feature films, as well as TV series, documentaries, trailers, music videos and commercials.

Finding Fela received mixed reviews from critics. Geoffrey Berkshire of Variety, said in his review: "This watchable but rather rote chronicle fails to find a compelling perspective on Kuti's significant life and legacy."

David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter praised the film by describing it as "An absorbing if not quite definitive patchwork of the life and legacy of an unorthodox artist."

Extracts from the film featured in the 2015 British Library exhibition West Africa: Word, Symbol, Song.

"Karuna Supreme" von Ali Akbar Khan & John Handy

In dieser Edition unserer HOMAGE SESSION wird Das World-Jazz-Ensemble der WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN, die Little Big Band, das Album "Karuna Supreme" von Ali Akbar Khan & John Handy spielen.

Karuna Supreme is an album by Ali Akbar Khan and John Handy which was recorded in 1975 and originally released on the MPS label.

 

Allmusic awarded the album 4½ stars stating "Karuna Supreme, recorded in 1975, is one of the earliest true fusions of Indian music and jazz, and remains one of the most successful... The level of communication among the players throughout this session would be difficult to surpass. This is one of those rare East-meets-West recordings that absolutely succeeds at every level. Highly recommended".

Ali Akbar Khan (14 April 1922–18 June 2009) was a Hindustani classical musician of the Maihar gharana, known for his virtuosity in playing the sarod. Trained as a classical musician and instrumentalist by his father, Allauddin Khan, Khan also composed several classical ragas and film scores.[1] He established a music school in Calcutta in 1956, and the Ali Akbar College of Music in 1967, which moved with him to the USA and is now based in San Rafael, California, with a branch in Basel, Switzerland.
