Jessie Ware on Tough Love, working with Miguel and getting mobbed in Poland 18.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
She bridges the gap between electronica and The X Factor, and her blend of crystalline pop and refined soul is a relief in a world of cloying attention seekers. So wheres her self-confidence? Did you give me a rooibos? splutters Jessie Ware, looking incredulously down at the mug of tea handed to her by Sam, her then-fiance, now husband. Fucking hell, you did. Control freak. Thats going to be reported in the Guardian: Jessie Ware, domestic prisoner. Shes joking, but when we meet in her flat in south London to chat over caffeine-free tea, her usually easy-going demeanour is tinged with an undercurrent of mania. Its not surprising her nearest and dearest are trying to keep her away from any stimulants; a later misunderstanding about a caramel wafer leads to an outburst worthy of an East End gangster. But its no wonder shes on edge: as well as trying to organise her impending wedding in Greece (her mum calls during our interview with news on the venue: I bet thats my mum Its my fucking mum! Sam, get it!), ...

RJD MP Pappu Yadav launches drive against doctors, IMA protests 18.9.2014 DNA: Money
RJD MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav has launched a drive against doctors accusing them of charging "exorbitant" fees forcing the Indian Medical Association to condemn his "extra constitutional" action. "An MBBS doctor shall charge Rs 100-150, an MD Rs 200-225 and experienced doctors Rs 300," Yadav told PTI over phone from Saharsa, where he organised 'Nukkad Natak' (street theatre) on the issue today. Coming harsh on "money making" spirit of doctors in the state, he questioned why doctors were charging Rs 1,200-1,400 for ultrasound when it could be done at Rs 80 in a government hospital? "Why is operation suggested even in a situation of normal delivery?" he asked. In protest against Yadav's actions and statements, medical practioners in Saharsa had struck work yesterday. Indian Medical Association Bihar Chapter today held a meeting in the state capital and condemned the MP's act. "When there is a regulatory body for doctors why is he targetting doctors by acting as extra consitutional authority?" IMA ...

Musicians who have made their best music after the age of 65 18.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Reaction to Leonard Cohens new album, made as he approaches his eighth decade, prompted the question who else has made great music later in life? Great albums by sexagenarians or septuagenarians are rare. Early response surrounding Popular Problems , 79-year-old Leonard Cohens new record, affirms that it belongs in that category. But the Canadian songwriter has already proved more fruitful than most in his twilight years, with Ten New Songs (2001) and, later, Old Ideas (2012) being among the best-received albums of his career. In an industry obsessed with the preservation of youth, theres a brilliant justice to the idea that often an artists creative juices in old age are more potent than they were in their formative years. We should also remember it was only recently, via producers such as Rick Rubin and XL boss Richard Russell, that the music biz began to venerate its elder statespeople with new records aimed at burnishing their ...

Restoring splendour to classics lost in the mists of time 17.9.2014 DNA: Wide Angle
Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, a filmmaker, producer and the founder of Dungarpur films, is spearheading a movement to protect India's cinematic heritage. He speaks to Pratik Ghosh about his latest initiative — a school to teach students about the art and craft of restoration and preservation. What made you decide to conduct the Film Preservation & Restoration School in India? After collaborating with Martin Scorsese’s World Cinema Foundation on the restoration of Uday Shankar’s Kalpana and the Sri Lanka film Nidhanaya, I realised that no full-fledged world class film restorations were being done in India. Given our singular cinematic legacy, I felt that it was imperative that we build an indigenous resource of film archivists and restorers who could work towards saving India’s cinematic heritage so that we do not need to look for help outside our country any longer. Film Preservation and Restoration School is a pioneering initiative of Film Heritage Foundation in collaboration with Martin Scorsese’s Film ...
Shamsia Hassani: I want to colour over the bad memories of war 17.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page

Afghanistans cultural image is changing, thanks in part to the strong, graceful and dynamic female silhoettes emerging from this bold graffiti artists spray can

Just over a decade ago, the abiding image of art in Afghanistan was the Buddhas of Bamiyan being destroyed by Taliban dynamite, but Shamsia Hassani is proof of how much has changed since. Hassani is the countrys foremost graffiti artist, and her work is respraying Afghanistans cultural image.

I want to colour over the bad memories of war on the walls, Hassani says, and if I colour over these bad memories, then I erase [war] from peoples minds. I want to make Afghanistan famous because of its art, not its war.

Northern lights: the tartan art-house illuminating the referendum 17.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The Projector Club art collective has dressed a West Lothian farmhouse in tartan. But its not as nationalistic as it might at first seem ... As the vote of our lifetimes approaches for anyone who lives in Britain, whether in Scotland or not the last political artworks of this very art-rich debate are appearing. A group of digital artists have just projected a glorious tartan lightshow on to a farm in West Lothian . Leyden Farm has turned entirely tartan. Looks lovely. Another iconic piece of publicity for the yes vote or is it? In fact, the artists claim that it is not intended to promote either yes or no but simply to celebrate Scotland at this dramatic moment. And in fact, theres nothing especially political about many of the most evocative markers of Scottish identity, including ...
