Creative Music For Soul: California rapper Raashan Ahmad and Bohemian Sarsha Simone

“We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.”
― Arthur O'Shaughnessy, Poems of Arthur O'Shaughnessy

Once upon a musical time Louis Armstrong said: “There’s two kinds of music; the good and the bad. I play the good kind”.

Not sure how many people have heard of Niels Bohr, the Danish Nobel Price winner. He noted that if individual souls are not shocked by quantum theory, they do not understand it ;-) That is what I feel about good soulful music. Such music should go deep and it should be disturbing. My hope is that many people will be disturbed, and acknowledge they have seen creative wrestle on you tube in "Music" by Rasashan & Sarsha. To deny that cute and playful creativity is happening in front of our eyes is to lose a fundamental, powerful part of the song.

“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols

Media Dragons are subjective and try to bring to surface good music such as “Music” which is the new single and video from Raashan Ahmad, and it features Ty and Sarsha Simone. The song comes from Ahmad's current album Ceremony. The visuals for the track “Music” that features UK verteran TY were shoot by Ashton Blessing, the man behing the equally great L’orange video for “Alone" - Czech out the simple yet complex song Music ~ Lady Gaga, I never expected to quote someone as young as her, said -" Let the blood and the bruises define your legacy.” ~~~ "The mind is everything. What you think you become." Sasha: Melodic Child of the Velvet Revolution Belgium Influence ~ “Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music.” ― George Carlin Grandfather's Polish connections

There are many fools or idiots in this world who are seduced into obsession, thanks to what behavioural scientist and Harvard Business School professor Francesca Gino calls “selfsignalling”. This is the willingness to go to what seems like risible lengths to secure an object because the process of doing so demonstrates that they are imbued with certain qualities they hold dear, which in this case is insiderness and an understanding of value. It’s the same urge that underpins the entire luxury industry; as various executives I talk to always say, they aren’t selling anything anyone needs, so they have to sell “the dream”. THE DREAM

Strangely, the heards tend to follow the noise emanating from empty vessels - I read recently that more than a million copies of the hit song featuring rapper Lupe Fiasco have been sold in the US since its release in August last year. Although written by Sebastian, the song was released as a Lupe Fiasco song featuring Guy Sebastian, to capitalise on Fiasco's strong profile.
It appears the move has worked and to celebrate the achievement, Sebastian has indulged in a glass of Lous XIII de Remy Martin cognac - that retails at Dan Murphy's for just more than $A3000. Battle Scars
