Sing it out loud!

BY CHAHIRA NOUIRA
@ VOL 7 ON MAY 09, 2017

When singing to win a TV show or to be the lead singer in the trendiest band in town has become the norm, we seem to have forgotten that singing is more than just that. Sharing the gift of singing across genres, countries and cultures goes beyond just a performance on stage. it´s about connecting, sharing and learning.

Chahira Nouira shares the story of how songs and singing has led her through life and helped her find a place whereever she goes.

A Journey in Music

BY ALAN KOR LOONG LAU
@ VOL 4 ON APR 15, 2017

As Forrest Gump said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” For 12-year-old Alan Kor Loong Lau, newly marooned in a boarding school and away from home for the first time, a bid to escape the rigors of school sport or uniformed groups led him into the school choir room, an encounter which was to change his life forever.

Ostensibly a personal journey into discovering music and singing, A Journey in Music is also about how big things start small, and the importance of random accidents.

"It takes a village."

Sometimes rules are meant to be broken. We abandoned the rule book for this free-form, "20x20 ish" team presentation, Champions for Change, at PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19Elizabeth Walsh, Professor at the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, shared her mic with a team of members of the Champion for Change program. Champions for Change (an initiative of One Region Forward in Buffalo) is a community innovation laboratory that integrates university and community resources to ignite bright ideas and inspired leadership for a flourishing region. In this celebration of community change-makers, one presenter even broke out into song. We guarantee this will make you smile!

Noh at PKN Nagoya

The next PechaKucha Night in Nagoya (Vol. 3) is set to happen February 6, but today we take a look at one of the amazing presentations from last October's Vol. 2, courtesy of co-organizer Mitsuyo Hattori. When Shunichiro Hisada, a noh musician, started to talk about how Japanese people have been living with nature, and about the understanding of what "ku," the emptiness was, while showing beautiful photos of Japanese nature, the atmosphere changed.... and when he actually started to play his Japanese hand drum and sing noh, everyone in the space stopped talking... even those people chatting and chatting around the bar in the back... What a strong impact the little hand drum can give, and how tranquil the air could become with the voice in noh singing -- he gave us a very awakening moment...

PKN Tromso Vol. 13

Tromso's PechaKucha Night Vol. 13 was part of the Global Cities Week, and here are few photos from the night that was. You'll also find the list of presenters with links on the official event page. Organizer Magdalena Haggärde has this to say:We had a really interesting lineup: our youngest presenters ever, Beatrice & Ingeborg 10 years old, opened, followed by the mayor Jens Johan Hjort (singing parts of his presentation) and other presenters sharing visions, passions and ideas. I think we also had the youngest PKN participant ever -- our three weeks old daughter Aile joined me as I hosted our Celebrating your city PKN. And -- as we already knew -- we have the best of audiences: a kind of quiet situation occured as our programmed DJ didn't show up, but luckily artist, musician and DJ Aggie of Frost who was there to attend the PKN, proposed to go get her records and provided excellent music the whole evening!

The Tea Darlings of Darjeeling

"Sometimes singing and dancing, the women tea-pluckers chatter all day." Juliana Post goes through the long and hard day in the life of a Darjeeling tea leaf-plucker. As we see in "The Tea Darlings of Darjeeling" from PKN Garrison Vol. 6, most of these plantation workers are women who receive approximately $1.50 for a day's work. Yet, as Juliana points out, the women chatter happily with each other throughout the day.

Pecha Kucha Night Inspire Nepal, 3rd July 2015

Blog by ~ Yajyu Manandhar Inspiration. Fun night. People. Drinks. Art. Music. Truth be told, this is how we recall Pecha Kucha Nights (PKN). As an event, it is owned by storytellers and their listeners. To begin with, it was PKN vol. 13 and the general idea of the event continues to be a simple presentation where one shows 20 images, each for 20 seconds. “The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.” I believe these sums up the jest of the event. Just a night earlier I had the glimpse of PKN’s poster on Facebook with an invite and next morning my friends dropped all my plans and got me in for PKN vol. 13 Inspire Nepal. One got me in, in the name of social interaction and rest seem to not get enough of PKN every single time. They were true in their own stance. Later that day, I spent the evening in Club 25 hours, Tangalwood with artists, friends and creative people. Following that, I walked in the club and stood in the crowd eying the stage, waiting for the show to begin. In short the event went on with actual rock stars singing heard and unheard songs to the rock stars that rocked the stage with their stories. I dissolved in the crowd that cheered, whistled and related to the stories that were told. As time passed by I canceled my plan to leave early and went with the flow of the night. Perhaps the earthquake stories overlapped everybody’s experience in the room and related accordingly. People clapped raising eyebrows every time good ideas and acts were projected in front of them. However they clapped harder and whistled louder when slides mocked politicians and foreign media (not that foreign in fact but I believe “what’s understood, need not be explained). Supporting the storytellers and their stories we spent the night. In their stories we sang, prayed, chanted holy mantras, and in their tales - we drank. But it did not end there; the event had lot to offer with performance artists who staged in between the event. No stranger to the disaster, we sipped their performance all in silence followed by applauds. I had my own moments at times, I got the jest of the show every once and while someone walked in the stage and shared. Also few ideas clicked me and few people inspired me. To mention, poster of the show read “Share-Inspire-Get Inspired”. To be specific on it, slides of performance artist Salil Subedi included folk songs, it reflected the whole idea of singing Nepali folk song. I grew a bit more realizing the idea. Also enthusiasm and views of presenters on the disaster we explored opened me up with brilliant interpretations. The event ended late night with a performance art, but my night did not end there. The show had me in a special mood with friends and fun. As it was a fun night, I with my friends went for another round and took a road to a café nearby to acknowledge the night before we got our homes. As I just said, we were in mood.

What the Hell is Alt. Country?

“I went to this summer camp in this area of southern Illinois… I signed up for two weeks. Everyone else seemed to sign up for one week so there was one point for like a week long I was there I was alone with all the counselors I started singing the canoe song… and they were like ‘oh my god, he's a buffet head! We're going to take him out for burgers and beer’.” In What the hell is Alt Country from PechaKucha Night Chicago’s 36th Volume speaker Michael Genge discusses music that has gotten him by.
