Turkuaz Debuts New Disco-Infused Tune, “On The Run”, With An Insane Music Video

first_imgTo say that Turkuaz has been on fire this year would be an understatement. Over the summer, the Brooklyn-based funk powerhouse made a spectacular debut at both Bonnaroo, where their performance garnered critical acclaim, and the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre supporting Lettuce. In the months since wrapping up their summer festival circuit, the group has embarked on an extensive fall tour, mesmerizing the West Coast with their dazzling live shows. The buzz around Turkuaz has been deservedly growing louder recently, and it seems like the sky is the limit for this tight group of nine funksters.Tourkuaz Diary #3: Turkuaz Hits Colorado And Reflects On Las Vegas ShootingToday, the band has released a brand-new single and a trippy accompanying music video for “On The Run”, a track produced by Jerry Harrison of The Talking Heads. The psychedelic video follows Broad City actor Chris Roberti as he navigates a crazy night at Brooklyn’s House Of Yes, a music venue and performance space that functions more of an indoor circus of sorts. The video—directed by Jay Sansone and produced by Dani Brandwein—is simultaneously whimsical and dark, complementing the vibe of the disco-infused tune.Turkuaz Honors Tom Petty, Invites DJ Williams In Los Angeles [Video]As Jerry Harrison noted of Turkuaz’s “On The Run”, “Working with Turkuaz was a total blast. We had first met when my daughter and I performed ‘Take Me to the River’ with them at The Fillmore in San Francisco. Playing that night, I was impressed with the nuances they had picked up from Talking Heads and knew that they would be fun to work with.” He continued, “Their level of musicianship was inspiring and we moved quickly through the recording process. I wanted to spend some time drawing out the power of their singing which can become submerged with such a powerful band between them. I think the results speak for themselves.”Listen to the latest from Turkuaz, and enjoy the crazy music video for “On The Run” below.last_img read more

Speaking the language of sympathy

first_imgThis is one in a series of profiles showcasing some of Harvard’s stellar graduates.Fleeing war in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan and dislocation across the Middle East, tens of thousands of people sailed the Aegean Sea in flimsy boats trying to reach Europe, generating the world’s worst refugee crisis since World War II.More than 4,500 miles away, Bennett Capozzi ’17 felt compelled to do something.The Winthrop House resident contacted Emergency Response Centre International, an organization in Greece that provides humanitarian aid to refugees, and offered to volunteer. After he secured funding for a six-day trip during January term, he traveled by himself to the island of Lesvos (also known as Lesbos), a gateway to Europe because of its strategic location.A Spanish volunteer collected Capozzi and two German volunteers from the airport and took Capozzi to the Kara Tepe refugee camp, which houses about 700 people, including children and families. With other volunteers, Capozzi took part in building a theater, patrolling the camp, and search-and-rescue operations for refugees making the perilous sea crossing at night.It was a sobering experience for Capozzi, a History & Literature concentrator who grew up in a close-knit family in Wellesley, a well-to-do suburb of Boston. It taught him to count his blessings, he said, and develop compassion for the suffering of others.“I realized how privileged I am,” said Capozzi. “But it also made me think that … in another life, I could have been making this journey.”Capozzi now ponders a career in government or public policy that might serve to help some of the millions of refugees in the Middle East region.“In the long term, I’d like to work shaping policy in the region,” he said, “because I think that our country and the world aren’t going to be safe or stable until we address the pressing issues in the Middle East.”To be better prepared, Capozzi will begin studies in January at the Qasid Arabic Institute in Amman, Jordan. There, he plans to hone his Arabic, which he learned at Harvard. His proficiency in modern standard Arabic has allowed him to follow the news on Al Jazeera and read “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” in Arabic. At the institute in Amman, he hopes to gain fluency in Levantine spoken Arabic, which includes dialects spoken in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, and the Palestinian territories.In the interim after graduation, Capozzi will work with Boston Foods, a group founded at the Harvard Innovation Lab (i-lab). Run by students, the group assembles and distributes healthy, low-cost food packages to low-income families in metro Boston.Capozzi’s stint at Boston Foods will be covered by the Pforzheimer Public Service Fellowship, which Harvard offers to students who want to pursue public service in the year after graduation.Boston Foods aims to fight food insecurity and obesity, serving about 70 families at five community centers, Capozzi said. “It provides a much-needed service and gives me an opportunity to engage with communities outside of the Harvard bubble.”Among his memorable experiences inside the bubble was a visit to his literature class by Nobel laureate Toni Morrison; his time on the varsity sailing team; his work as a Harvard tour guide; and the moments he spent with his group of eight close friends watching movies, playing cards, or just hanging out.“There is a lot of room for people to be goofy and have fun,” Capozzi said of his best memories. “You have to remember you’re 20 years old and you don’t need to have everything planned out.”A highlight of Capozzi’s Harvard experience was his time was at the Crimson Key Society, a student group that gives Harvard’s official historical tours to guests and the public. He said the best part was sharing his excitement about the college with strangers, and seeing the surprise on their faces when they learn unexpected facts about the nation’s oldest university.One of Capozzi’s favorite moments is when he leads visitors into Memorial Hall, the imposing Victorian Gothic building on Quincy Street that commemorates Harvard students who fought in the Civil War. Visitors are always impressed by its marble floors, stained glass windows, and black wood paneling.Visitors are also struck by Annenberg Hall, the freshman dining hall, which resembles Hogwarts’ Great Hall in the Harry Potter series. “You can hear a collective gasp,” said Capozzi. “People go, ‘Ahhh, this is so cool.’”On a recent afternoon, Capozzi’s group included his mother, who came with two friends to tour campus for the first time. Capozzi said his mother not only learned “a new historical side” of Harvard, “she saw what I have been doing for four years.”And the years ahead? Capozzi hopes polishing his Arabic will better equip him for work helping refugees from the Middle East.“I’m increasingly interested in working in government or some sort of public policy role. In the long term, I hope to come back to the United States after having worked in the Middle East and North Africa. The other day, I went to listen to Samantha Power [U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from 2013 to 2017]. We need more people like her.”last_img read more

Goodbye, tennis: Sharapova announces retirement

first_imgSharapova burst onto the scene as a supremely gifted teenager and won her Grand Slams before serving a 15-month ban for failing a drugs test at the 2016 Australian Open.The Russian former world number one’s ranking is currently 373rd.Sharapova has hardly played in the past year because of long-standing shoulder problems.When she did play she lost as many matches as she won and was dumped out in the first rounds at Wimbledon, the US Open and, most recently, the Australian Open in Melbourne. Sharapova shot to fame as a giggly 17-year-old Wimbledon winner in 2004, the third-youngest player to conquer the All England Club’s hallowed grass courts. ‘Tennis gave me life’ She became world number one in 2005 and won the US Open the next year.”One of the keys to my success was that I never looked back and I never looked forward,” Sharapova said on Wednesday.”I believed that if I kept grinding and grinding, I could push myself to an incredible place.”But in 2007 Sharapova began her long on-off battle with shoulder trouble.She would win the 2008 Australian Open before a second shoulder injury kept her off tour for the second half of the season, missing the US Open and Beijing Olympics.In 2012, the Siberian-born Sharapova captured the French Open to become the 10th woman to complete a career Grand Slam. She added Olympic silver to her resume that year.Her 2014 French Open title was another high after a dispiriting injury low.More fitness troubles followed before the bombshell announcement of her positive test for the banned heart drug meldonium.Always a fighter — the seven-year-old Maria and father Yuri left for the US in 1994 with just a borrowed $700 to their names — Sharapova returned to the sport in 2017.”In giving my life to tennis, tennis gave me a life,” Sharapova said in her retirement missive.”I’ll miss it everyday. I’ll miss the training and my daily routine: Waking up at dawn, lacing my left shoe before my right, and closing the court’s gate before I hit my first ball of the day.”I’ll miss my team, my coaches. I’ll miss the moments sitting with my father on the practice court bench. The handshakes — win or lose — and the athletes, whether they knew it or not, who pushed me to be my best.”Looking back now, I realize that tennis has been my mountain. My path has been filled with valleys and detours, but the views from its peak were incredible.”Topics : Five-time Grand Slam winner Maria Sharapova, one of the world’s most recognisable sportswomen, on Wednesday announced her retirement at the age of 32.”Tennis — I’m saying goodbye,” Sharapova said in an article for Vogue and Vanity Fair magazines.”After 28 years and five Grand Slam titles, though, I’m ready to scale another mountain — to compete on a different type of terrain.”last_img read more

GCB/Hand-in-Hand Under-19 tourney

first_imgDemerara bowled out for 190; Anderson rescues Select Under-17 with centuryTHE final round of the Guyana Cricket Board/Hand-in-Hand Under-19 Inter-county three-day tournament got off to a relatively prompt start yesterday, despite the current weather conditions.This competitive round saw the commencement of battles between defending champions Demerara and Berbice at Everest, and the National Select Under-17 and Essequibo at the Police Sports Club ground.At the Everest Cricket Club ground, Demerara won the toss and elected to bat first, but only managed 190 runs off 90.3 overs. Ramnarine Chatura hit a solid 53 off 98 balls, with three fours and three sixes. West Indies youth selectees Bhaskar Yadram and Joshua Persaud made 39 and 17 respectively, while Riche Looknauth contributed 21 and Raymond Perez 17.Bowling for Berbice, left-arm spinner Keith Simpson grabbed 5 for 78 from 31 overs and off-spinner Kevin Sinclair took 5 for 32 from 38.3 overs.Berbice in reply reached 19 for 1 at the close from 13 overs, Kevin Sinclair and Adrian Sukwah unbeaten on 12 and 1 respectively. Veramootoo was dismissed by Bhaskar Yadram for 3.Over at the Police Sports Club ground at Eve Leary, the National Select Under-17 team attempted to capitalise on their option to bat first, but Essequibo had other plans as they sent back three of the Select Under-17 top-order wickets and held them at 45 for 3 after 33 overs at lunch.The Select Under-17, despite a slight recovery were soon 68 for 5 before Kevlon Anderson, batting at number five, and Pradesh Ballkishun batting at number seven gave Select Under-17s a sixth-wicket partnership of 77. Ballkishun was soon caught at long off by Quentin Sampson off Mahendra Persaud for 24.Kevlon Anderson continued to lead the Select Under-17 batting lineup, bringing up his century off 287 balls, with 13 boundaries.Anderson finished the day’s play on an unbeaten 101 that rallied the National Select Under-17 to 167 for 6 from 107 overs. Essequibo’s bowlers have so far combined to produce a good team effort, with Mahendra Persaud taking two wickets, while receiving valuable support from Joshua Jones, Sheldon Charles, Lesley Allen and Joel Fortune, all with wicket apiece.The matches continue today, with play on the second day at both the Everest and Police grounds starting at 10:00hrs.last_img read more

Police retain Hamilton Green Cup

first_imgBy Joe ChapmanSTRIKER Kester Dundas banged in the solitary goal of the Hamilton Green football championship final against home side Winners Connection to give the Guyana Police Force their second Hamilton Green title.Dundas’ goal in the 78th minute of play was the result of a received cross from Rawle Haynes down the right flankPlaying on a bigger outfield at the MSC ground the lawmen were not as dominant as one expected but their opponents were not up to scratch, as they struggled in the first half to outplay each other.However, as the second half got underway the Linden side looked better, but the City-based team always were on the hunt for top honours as they pressured the Linden side at midfield and were able to come away with some close shaves.The second half was more up-tempo and competitive as Winners Connection saw veteran Rawle ‘Boney’ Gittens replace Marmalaque Davidson.Changes by Police were not far off with Dundas coming on around the 68th minute. Ten minutes later he was able to unlock Connection’s defence and find the back of the net against a dazed Linden side. This dented the hopes of a victory after being competitive, at the very least, in this encounter.The Police side are on a good run of football performances. They have been the side to beat outside of the Guyana Football Federation’s Elite League.Their manager Keyron Boston said he was satisfied with the win although they could have played better ahead of another final which they will contest tomorrow in the City.last_img read more
