Making poetry sing

first_imgTsitsi Jaji, the Mary I. Bunting Institute Fellow at Radcliffe, is fascinated by what songs can teach literary specialists about how to read poetry. She calls art songs — vocal compositions typically arranged for one voice with piano accompaniment — “the perfect texts to explore the dynamic relationship between music and poetry in my new Radcliffe project.”That project, titled “Classic Black: Art Songs and Poetry in the Black Atlantic,” examines the work of 19th- and 20th-century composers of African descent from Britain, Nigeria, South Africa, and the United States who set poetry to music, and how things like harmony, cadence, tempo, and rhythm alter the meaning of the words.Jaji will sing the art songs she analyzes as poetic commentaries during a presentation today at 4 p.m. in the Radcliffe Gymnasium. For the classically trained pianist, singing instead of sitting at the keyboard helped her learn not only how hard the songs are to sing but also to “pay attention to the vowels … it’s a different perspective on the actual substance and sound and diction of language.” (Cansu Çolakoğlu ’16, one of Jaji’s two Radcliffe researchers, will accompany her on the piano. Her second assistant, Adela Kim ’16, helped her transcribe the music she worked with into Sibelius, the computer musical notation program.)Soundbytes: Tsitsi Jaji | A Corn Song Tsitsi Jaji, a 2012-13 Radcliffe Institute Fellow, performs “A Corn Song” by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.In addition to performing musical works by Ignatius Sancho, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, and Shirley Graham Du Bois, whose compositions she found next door to her office in Radcliffe’s Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America, Jaji set her own work to a poem titled “Jonah” by Lucille Clifton, the former poet laureate of Maryland. Jaji, now an assistant professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania, called Clifton “an amazing master of packing immense punch into a handful of lines.”The biblical reference in “Jonah” evokes “a body of oral culture, including spirituals and black vernacular preaching styles,” said Jaji, who used the melody from one of her own favorite spirituals, “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child,” in the piano part of her composition to evoke something much darker.“The use of that melody allows me to show that I see the reference to Jonah’s whale as actually referring to the belly of a slave ship,” she said, “rather than the biblical leviathan.”Jaji added: “The last few lines of the song are quiet, as if the warning to the brothers is delivered in hushed tones, and then there is a sudden crescendo on the final word ‘ocean.’ I can only imagine the terror that kidnapped men, women, and children from the interior in West Africa must have felt when the saw and heard the ocean for the first time on the eve of their transport in the Middle Passage … and how, retrospectively, that terror must have grown even more acute.”While Jaji said she could have chosen to set a work by Walt Whitman to music, like she has done in the past, using the words of the African-American Clifton allowed her to claim an artistic lineage that has become vital to her.“That for me is a pan-African move, because I could just claim relationship to my Shona identity from Zimbabwe, but as a person who has lived in the United States now for 20 years, I am a black American and this is part of that larger black Atlantic tradition that I see myself very much needing, and celebrating my connection to.”Jaji said another fellow at Radcliffe, visual artist Zoe Beloff, who tries to make “esoteric knowledge available to everyone,” influenced her work.To Jaji, “Performing these songs is kind of the same thing. … If you have access to privilege, which surely at Harvard we do, what can you do to open up that privilege to a wider sector of your world?”Born in Zimbabwe, Jaji left Africa to attend Oberlin, where she studied both comparative literature and piano performance. After college she considered an advanced degree in music, but her interest in comparative literature (and a better financial package) prompted her to pursue a Ph.D. in that subject at Cornell University.In upstate New York, she merged both worlds, studying literature, but also keeping up with her music. Her dissertation blended the two, examining the influence of black American music on the expressive cultures of Ghana, South Africa, and Senegal.She wrote about “music in literature and film, and the way that black American experience was … articulating resistance to white supremacy.”Her research became the basis for her forthcoming book from Oxford University Press, “Africa in Stereo: Music, Modernism and pan-African Solidarity,” which she finished at Radcliffe earlier this year. Her work on the book led her to her current project. It included a look at the influence of music on the first Pan-African national conference in 1900 in London. There, as part of the program, Afro-British composer Coleridge-Taylor set a poem to music — “A Corn Song” by African-American poet and Ohio native Paul Laurence Dunbar.“Coleridge-Taylor’s harmonic and rhythmic choices shifted the way that Dunbar’s poetry registered meaning, affect, and imagery for me,” Jaji wrote in April. “Here was a composer teaching me to read differently.”last_img read more

Sales on the rise in Greenbank as boutique estate opens up

first_imgCarly Arkadieff and Matt Fellows-Smith were the first purchasers at Harvest Rise, a new development at Greenbank. Picture – Jono SearleTHIS couple love the Greenbank area so much that when they heard their neighbours had sold and a new development was on the cards they jumped right in.Carly Arkadieff and her partner Matt Fellows-Smith were the first to snap up a block of land in the newly launched Harvest Rise.Ms Arkadieff said she had lived in the area since she was three years old and love the mix of having a country vibe but still maintaining easy access to Brisbane and the Gold Coast.“I live next door to Harvest Rise and we used to know the people who sold the land, and when we heard the development was happening this year we jumped on board straight away,” she said.The couple has bought a 420sq m block which they hope to build a four-bedroom home on.Mr Arkadieff said the estate really appealed to them because it was a boutique estate aimed at owner-occupiers who would take care of their houses and yards and keep the area looking nice.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor7 hours agoHarvest Rise is the third Queensland project for the company and is proving a success with 15 sold and committed lot sales on its recent launch day.Intrapac Property CEO Maxwell Shifman said the company had done a lot of research before buying into the Greenbank area.“We spent a lot of time searching for the perfect land in Southeast Queensland and at Harvest Rise we tick every box,” he said. “It’s set on a natural high-point among stunning rolling hills, with views stretching to White Rock Conservation Park and Spring Mountain Forest Park.”There are a number of block sizes available ranging from 399sq m to 560sq m, as well as a selection of block types. The name Harvest Rise was chosen in response to the once abundant fields of grapes that grew on the land.Harvest Rise has been certified an UDIA EnviroDevelopment in all six categories — the highest achievable level, showing the sustainable aspects that the developer is known for in the areas of ecosystems, waste, energy, materials, water and community.“Building your dream home at Harvest Rise means you’ll enjoy the healthy lifestyle benefits and energy cost savings that come with this level of sustainability, protecting your investment for the long term,” Mr Shifman said.last_img read more

Wilson discusses technology disparities at Harvard

first_imgCAMBRIDGE, Mass. — The transition to a digital society is negatively threatening and marginalizing those at the bottom, Annenberg Dean Ernest J. Wilson III said at the Harvard University W.E.B. Du Bois Lecture Series this week.The digital age · Dean Ernest J. Wilson III analyzes digital-era technologies and their impact on culture in a lecture at Harvard University. – Eric Burse | Daily TrojanBy delivering the three-day lecture series, which ended Thursday, Wilson joined previous Du Bois lecturers, including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Cornel West, a prominent professor in Princeton University’s Center for African-American Studies.The lecture series is named after scholar, writer, editor and civil rights pioneer W.E.B. Du Bois, the first African American to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard University.Wilson’s remarks during the series focused on his study of a wide variety of contemporary digital-era issues.Wilson described a “scissor effect” in which minority ownership, control and content in media assets has decreased with the growth of media dominance and importance. In 2009, Wilson said, African-Americans owned 1 percent of media properties. Today, that number has declined to 0.7 percent.“We should care about this because we are citizens and these are matters of the life and death of democracy,” Wilson said. “The number of African-Americans and other people of color in positions of senior leadership and ownership of media properties is either stagnant or declining.”Brandon Terry, a post-doctoral student at Harvard, said Wilson’s talk touched upon a very pertinent issue.“Dean Wilson is tackling probably the most crucial issue in politics and economics right now,” Terry said. “We’re on the cusp of an enormous transformation of economy and society which is brought on by digital innovation.”Wilson’s remarks considered how Du Bois would react and think about this new digital divide. Wilson set up a website, www.DigitalDubois.net several weeks before the series. On the site, Wilson posted four questions, including how the introduction of new communication technologies has affected the African-American community and what the impact has been on minority interaction with other communities.Benjamin Todd Jealous, CEO of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, was among those who listed responses.“Du Bois was a communicator’s communicator,” Jealous wrote. “I have no doubt that Du Bois would use digital media and mobile technology to do what he did in his prime — reach out, inspire, unify and activate members of the black community and people of good conscience of all colors.”Michael Copps, a senior adviser for Common Cause, also contributed a post to the website.“Broadband is the essential infrastructure of the Twenty-first century,” Copps wrote. “This is a civil rights issue — perhaps the preeminent one confronting us right now, because the outcome of so many other great challenges resides on how we deal with this one. Du Bois would have recognized this … we should recognize it, too.”In his closing remarks before a lecture room filled with Harvard students and academics, Wilson said giving the lectures was not just a professional pleasure, but a personal one.Wilson’s grandfather graduated from Harvard in 1910 when Du Bois was still a student there. A picture of Wilson’s grandfather alongside Du Bois was displayed on screens during the event.[Correction: A previous version of this article stated Wilson’s grandfather gradated from Harvard in 1910 when Du Bois was a student there. Du Bois received a Ph.D. from Harvard in 1895.]“What I want to accomplish with these lectures is inspiring a rethinking of our political agenda on the topic,” Wilson said. “These issues are so important for the  future of America and for people of color to a transition of an information-based society. This is an issue much too important to be left up to economists and policy makers.”last_img read more

‘Miracle’ health train turns 10

first_img14 January 2004For the past 10 years, South Africa’s innovative “miracle” train, Phelophepa, has brought primary health care to rural areas where, according to government statistics, there is one doctor for every 4 000 to 5 000 patients.Phelophepa – a seSotho word for good, clean health – came into being in January 1994 when parastatal Transnet’s corporate social investment department and the optometry unit of the Rand Afrikaans University joined up to provide rural South Africans with primary eye care.The train initially had only three carriages and was solely financed by Transnet. Now Phelophepa has 16 carriages, and a host of companies have joined in the programme as sponsors.It is the first and only primary health care train in the world, and one of the most ambitious corporate projects ever undertaken in South Africa.Phelophepa travels around the country for 36 weeks of the year, stopping at least five times at each of 36 stations in the Free State, Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga.About 40 000 patients receive treatment at the train’s various clinics each year, and more than one million people have been reached to date.This year, Phelophepa will visit the Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, Limpopo and North West provinces. Gauteng, which is deemed urban, is excluded from the train’s itinerary.Lynne Coetzee, Transnet’s portfolio manager for health, suggested the idea of expanding the train’s facilities to turn it into an holistic travelling health care service that will reach thousands of rural communities.Student volunteers work alongside 15 full-time staff to provide basic health services – including general, dental and eyecare – in the rural areas. Public awareness about health issues, including HIV/Aids, is also promoted.Power sourceThe train has a unique power car which generates enough electricity to supply a small town for two weeks.Under normal operating conditions the drive wheels of the passenger coaches generate enough electricity for lights and hot water. But as the Phelophepa provides its services while stationary, another power source had to be found, and a dedicated power generator was essential.Old coaches were refurbished to accommodate an Edu-Clinic, which is equipped to teach groups of 25 local volunteers about basic health issues, with a medicine clinic which houses a pharmacy, the Roche health clinic with five examination clinics and an office, the Colgate dental clinic with five dental chairs, a psychology clinic with two consultation rooms, and two coaches that serve as an eye clinic.The train also has a dining car for 40 people and a kitchen where nearly 200 meals are prepared each day. Four carriages contain sleeping compartments and a laundry with five washing machines, tumble driers and ironing boards for use by the 56 people on board.The Transnet Foundation has announced that it will provide 48 percent of the train’s funding for the 2004 financial year. It said the train’s monthly expenditure – despite escalating costs – is estimated at R1.5-million, which translates to about R60 to R70 per patient. The remaining 52 percent will be covered by corporate sponsors.Roche, a research-oriented healthcare group which has partnered Transnet in the project since 1994, also announced a substantial financial injection for the train. Roche has paid the costs of the health clinic as well as the vehicle used by staff to visit surrounding villages and schools.The company said its additional sponsorship will be used to expand services on the train. These will include adding new clinics for diabetes care and oncology. The school health services project will also be extended, while additional funds will be spent to maintain the train and the communications infrastructure.Urgent needsThe inclusion of diabetes and oncology care will cover urgent needs. According to Pat Senne, head of corporate affairs and communication for Roche SA, Type II diabetes is becoming increasingly significant in rural South Africa – yet it is a problem that can be prevented.“Diet and obesity can predispose people to Type II diabetes, so we hope to add value to Phelophepa by educating patients on how to eat properly and recognise symptoms of the disease,” Senne told The Star newspaper.In addition, the health clinic will screen patients for cancer, a disease which affects a frightening number of people with lumps on the body but who are unaware that something could be wrong. Although cancer cannot be treated on the train, if it is detected patients will be directed to the nearest hospital.Roche has has also undertaken to fund the school health screening and education service and the dispensary.Jorg-Michael Rupp, Roche SA’s chief executive officer, told The Star: “Phelophepa is one of Roche’s flagship global projects and it is a rewarding example of how we support socially responsible and sustainable projects.“The train is impressive not only as it is an effective service to the poorest of the rural poor, but because of its ability to uplift the whole community.”SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
