Skin Bleaching is Addictive!

For Catherine Tetteh the story of skin bleaching is very personal. She is actively educating people and fighting against skin bleaching in Togo and throughout Africa.  People are not aware of the Skin Bleaching industry being more profitable than the Pharmaceutical industry, or illicit drugs,  along with dangerous effects.  Aside from some of the very dangerous and harmful ingredients of bleaching products, it is also a fact that they are highly addictive due to cortisone as a main ingredient of those products.
Catherine talks about various side effects of daily usage of skin bleaching products which vary from skin rashes to cancers, sterility, and diseases induced by deep penetration of toxic and carcinogenic bio-products into the body.
Skin bleaching is widely used around the planet.  The reasons for its use slightly vary in different parts, but have a common denominator – “beauty comes first” says Catherine, but people and the industry are quiet about it.

What Is Skin Bleaching?
Skin bleaching is a cosmetic treatment to reduce the prominence of skin
discolorations and even out the color of the skin. You can buy bleaching creams over the counter and by prescription.
Some people apply skin
lightener to their entire body to change their complexion, but this can be very risky. The active ingredient in some skin lighteners is mercury, so bleaching can lead to mercury poisoning.
Mercury is a
toxic agent that can cause serious psychiatric, neurological, and kidney problems. Pregnant women who use a skin lightener with mercury can pass the mercury to their unborn child.
The use of mercury as an ingredient in skin
lighteners is banned in the U.S. However, some skin lighteners produced outside the U.S. may still contain mercury.

Skin lightening agents may include:
Hydroquinone
Cysteamine
Topical
retinoids
Botanicals
Other agents
Topical
corticosteroids
Mercury
Licorice

Wild Diversity of the Guayanas

Guayanas – a big chunk of the planet at the Northeastern tip of South America, and if we rarely hear about these places, it is mainly because very few people live there – Suriname with population of 500 000, and French Guyana only 200 000.
The people who live in the Guayanas are mix from all over the world, and consequently all this cultural deliciousness means that local music consumption is wildly diverse.
We are featuring some of the home grown stuff as well kaseko, kawinka, aleke and bigi pokoe, along with local reggae musicians….

Orchestra Baobab

Life in Senegal has a soundtrack, and the Senegalese sound unmistakably has a Latin vibe. By tracing the bloodlines of slavery, arching from Gorée Island off the coast of Senegal, to North America, South America and the Caribbean, it is possible to begin to understand the long history in the relationship between Senegalese and Cuban music. Where people go, culture follows and where there is culture, there is the song that carries the story of its people.
Music in Senegal, with its strong structure of Latin flavor, continues to evolve with new musicians joining the international circuit every year.
Despite the differences in cultures, the music should feel like home to you. It’s the sadness, happiness, hopes and dreams that are a part of every human, a sense of longing and belonging that traveled throughout history and has become the sound of almost everything you hear on the radio and television. Orchestra Baobab is that sound directly from its source, a musical melting pot with the organic ingredients providing an undeniable flavor.
We are featuring in the beginning two songs from album to be released on 31st of March 2017 Tribute to Ndiouga Dieng….continuing with their early years…. Pirates Choice, Specialist in All Styles , Made in Dakar …

50 years and Spouge

Following the establishment of the first English settlement at Holetown in 1627, Barbados remained a British colony for more than 300 years. Its independence on November 30, 1966 was marked by the raising of the Barbados national flag and playing the new national anthem for the first time

In Bajan culture music plays a vital role. From those early days of independence we picked up spouge as it is developed, melted in its own style, and you will hear in the first half of this musical edition. Slowly spouge will transcend into calypso and soca with songs from Crop Over of different years…

Spouge as a style of Barbadian popular music was created by Jackie Opel in the 1960s. It is primarily a fusion of Jamaican ska with Trinidadian calypso, but is also influenced by a wide variety of musics from the British Isles and United States, include sea shanties, hymns and spirituals. Spouge instrumentation originally consisted of cowbell, bass guitar, trap set and various other electronic and percussion instruments, later augmented by saxophone, trombone and trumpets.[1] Of these, the cowbell and the guitar are widely seen as the most integral part of the instrumentation, and are said to reflect the African origin of much of Barbadian music.

Soca, Soca

Crop Over (formerly called “Harvest Home”) is a traditional harvest festival which began in Barbados, having had its early beginnings on the sugar cane plantations during the colonial period. The crop over tradition began in 1688, and featured singing, dancing and accompaniment by bottles filled with water, shak-shak, banjo, triangle, fiddle, guitar, and bones. Other traditions included climbing a greased pole, feasting and drinking competitions. Originally a celebration signaling the end of the yearly sugar cane harvest, it has since evolved into Barbados’ biggest national festival similar to Carnival in Brazil and Trinidad.

However Cropover with Soca is celebrated all over West Indies .
Today we are featuring some of the latest Soca songs of Barbados, Trinadad, St. Vincent Grenada……

Black Peru

In this musical program we are touching the music of Black Peru, and the cultural identity in the Black Pacific
The “Black Pacific” is a term coined by ethnomusicologist Heidi Carolyn Feldman. She describes the circumstance of African descendants displaced not only from their ancestral homes in Africa, but also from the Atlantic coast nations where their enslaved ancestors were originally brought. The sonically vibrant realm of Afro-Peruvian music, a young genre identification that has flourished since the 1950s and has produced artists of international renown, such as singer Susana Baca, and the black folkloric company Peru Negro. The music is sensuous and deeply beautiful, and represents a fascinating and little understood history.
