O folk rústico de Buffy Sainte-Maria e Alela Daine



O que Buffy Sainte-Maria e Alela Diane tem em comum? Apesar da grande distância de geração, ambas têm vínculo com a América nativa, a ruralidade da América profunda e esquecida. Vozes potentes, arranjos sutis e poderosos, imagens evasivas e enigmáticas. Ambas souberam criar uma ponte entre o passado e o presente sem soarem nostálgicas - Buffy chegou a valer-se de experimentos eletrônicos (em Illuminations, de 69) para enriquecer seu folk primal. Mas o melhor de ambas, é usarem apenas da música para expressarem sua arte e não da publicidade e declarações “bombásticas” como muitas cantoras atuais.


Buffy Sainte-Marie


Ela é totalmente desconhecida no Brasil, chegou a ter alguns discos lançados aqui nos anos 70, mas foram fracasso de venda. No entanto, ela tem uma música muito famosa cantada na voz do mala Joe Cocker: “Up Where We Belong”, composta por ela e seu marido Jack Nitzsche (velho parceiro de Neil Young e do Crazy Horse) que foi tema do premiado filme “A Força do Destino” (1983). Pena, que a versão original não foi usada no filme, sendo que é bem melhor do que a versão de Cocker.

De ascendência índia, órfã logo após nascer, foi educada de acordo com a tradição das tribos norte-americanas, por uma família de uma outra tribo vizinha. Deixou a tribo e o Canadá nos anos 60 para tentar carreira como cantora folk na famosa Greenwich Village; rapidamente se tornou um símbolo da luta dos nativos americanos pela afirmação da sua identidade cultural.

Alela Diane

Alela cresceu em Nevada, Califórnia (USA), e apesar de ser filha de pais músicos, só foi levar a sério a música aos 19 anos. Desde suas primeiras gravações caseiras (“Forest Parade”) até chegar ao seu primeiro álbum, The Pirate´s Gospel (2006), Diane já tinha se aventurado pelo mundo com apenas mochila nas costas e, claro, sua guitarra para traduzir em músicas seus momentos de reflexão e descobrimentos.

Seu mais recente trabalho To Be Still (2009), incorporou-se vários instrumentos como bandolim e violino e slide guitar, no entanto não prejudicou o clima rústico das canções. Já vi críticos rotularem sua música de várias formas como “freak folk” e ao mesmo tempo enquadrá-la a movimentos contemporâneos (New weird America), além de compará-la a outras cantoras antigas, nunca Buff Sainte-Marie, talvez por desconhecê-la. Tudo bem que Alela lembra Vashti Bunyan, principalmente pela rusticidade, mas compará-la à Nico (Velvet Underground) e Sandy Denny (Fairport Convention) é muita viagem.

Puxa, lembro de "Up where we belong" como uma música linda, que embalava a Debra winger no filme que vc citou... engraçado, que nunca me ocorreu que pudesse ser de outra pessoa que naõ o Joe Cocker.
Mas a versaõ original é linda também.
Seu blog é mesmo muito bom.

Excelente comparação. Bom ouvido e percepcção musical! Eu também me lembro bem do filme - Richard Gere tava novinho, muito gato já... hehehehe
Eu acho incomparáveis as duas versões. Cada uma tem seu lugar. Apesar de não ser muito fã do Joe Cocker, ele deu "sorte" de ter músicas de seu repertório em filmes icônicos e esse é um deles!

Hello,

I'm spending my time here for the children of Haiti.

I'm at this site for a non-profit haiti group that is devoted to giving time to
creating an oppurunity for the children in haiti. If anybody wants to give money then this is the site:

[url=http://universallearningcentre.org]Donate to Haiti[/url] or Help Haiti

They give kids in Haiti books and teach them.

Please check it out, they're legit.

Anything would be appreciated

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on www.blogger.com. I have recently decided to find a good vendor of electronic cigarettes. I'm done with paying so much for normal cigarettes.A friend recommended [url=http://www.insanereleases.info/greensmokef.html]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers quality Electronic cigarettes with disposable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a variety of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented product offers convenience and performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to Bing.com, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting STA.com. This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.
