Celine Wadier/ Dhrupad & Accoustic Songs Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar Bahauddin Dagar

Celine Wadier | Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar

Z.F. Dagar: “Dhruvatara – the evening star, the star that never trembles, and Pada – poetry, merge to give name to this music, Dhrupad. – Dhrupad, the name does what it should, it makes luminous the nature of that which is named. This is a music which depends very little on virtuosity. Here, whatever becomes music is what has been contemplated upon. The musician is alone with nothing but the vastness of the self as anchor, the very musicality lying in the contemplation. There is little here that can impress, that has a narrative, events or arrival. What there is instead is a movement, born out of the musical search that takes the self from wherever it is standing to a new, unknown place.

Celine Wadier will be singing her tracks at the beautifull Union Chapel London for the Music Daylight Festival on…

Saturday 20th, 12h15

Apple macht Musik ohne Kopierschutz billiger

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on October 17, 2007

New York (dpa) – Unter dem Preisdruck der Konkurrenz macht Apple Musik ohne Kopierschutz bei iTunes erheblich billiger. Statt bisher 1,29 Dollar würden kopierschutzfreie Songs künftig wie alle anderen 99 Cent kosten, sagte Konzernchef Steve Jobs dem «Wall Street Journal». Die Preise würden spätestens heute umgestellt. Es ist noch unklar, ob die Preissenkung nur in den USA oder auch in anderen Regionen gelten soll. In Europa kosten Songs ohne Kopierschutz bei iTunes 1,29 Euro.
