Mexican-American singer and songwriter Lila Downs is a GRAMMY winner and one of the most celebrated artists of her generation. A native of Oaxaca, she’s built a career bridging cultures and languages, both as a musician and social activist for humanitarian causes. With guidance from her vocalist mother and inspiration from Mexican singing greats Chavela Vargas and Lucha Villa balanced by the gamut of American music she heard in the States, Downs made her major label debut with 1999’s jazz-informed La Sandunga, and her contributions to the 2002 Frida Kahlo biopic Frida elevated her status to that of a major international star. She’s won a GRAMMY and multiple Latin GRAMMYs, including a nod for her newest Sony Music album, Salón, Lágrimas y Deseo (Salon, Tears and Desire). This performance, filmed in May 2019, is a celebration of that release.
MUSIC, OCT 31: The Songwriting of The Beatles: The Experimental Sounds of Rubber Soul and Revolver - Stanford University, Stanford, California, USA - ONLINE
More than fifty years after they exploded onto the music scene, The Beatles still capture our imagination as few groups have. In this four-day course, we will delve into The Beatles’ career, development, and songwriting process through a deep-dive into two extraordinary albums, the “bookends” of Rubber Soul and Revolver, which marked the end of their commercially driven era and a transition to a more experimental sound. Recorded in the fall of 1965, and a decisive step away from Beatlemania, Rubber Soul showcased the band’s growing maturity as songwriters and studio artists. It was also their second complete album of originals, after 1964’s A Hard Day’s Night. Steeped in equal parts of Bob Dylan, Stax, and Motown soul, Rubber Soul illustrated how pop was rapidly shifting from discrete pop singles to album-length artistic statements. 1966’s Revolver was a landmark—arguably their greatest album. An explosion of influences—psychedelia, American soul, avant-garde European classical/electronic music, Hindustani classical music, and British music hall—Revolver was the album that opened up vast, new artistic spaces and changed rock history. It was also their first album that could not be easily, or adequately, performed by the band live on stage. The course will include lectures, discussions, and the opportunity to listen closely to individual tracks, as we examine the studio process, equipment, techniques, and songwriting craft that brought these albums to life.

The Vancouver Visual Art Foundation invites you to get creative with our online art class series.

Caravaggio (1571-1610) is for sure a star and one of the most contradictory and scandalous artists. His innovative artistry is recognized as the bridge between the Mannerist style typified by Michelangelo Buonarroti, Agnolo Bronzino, Titian of the High Renaissance and the Baroque splendor of Rubens and Rembrandt. His paintings and persona have entered popular culture, and his portrait and two of his works were featured on the old 100,000 lire banknote of Italy.

Join Elena Nahum Leroy as she guides you step-by-step to one of Caravaggio’s most famous paintings, Still Life with a Basket of Fruit using acrylic paint.
