Ellinor Miranda Salome Olovsdotter stage name Elliphant was born in one of my favorite cities Stockholm, Sweden.  Recently Elliphant shot two videos in Pakistan, where I was born and where my uncle Pakistani singer Saleem Raza had indoctrinated me into the world of music when I was growing a boy.

Here are the two videos of Elliphant shot in Pakistan, you will note in the guitarist in ‘Where Is Home’ wears a ‘kameez’ (long shirt usually worn traditionally in Pakistan with salwar), and jeans, this my friends is very much in vogue.

In the video ‘Spoon Me’, there is a sweet tabla, with electronic beats that are very popular in Pakistan underground music scene especially in the city of Karachi.

I have also included some tracks in a play list for you to enjoy recorded in the late 60’s by my uncle.  Hope you enjoy the play list I grew up with lot of uncles playing tabla and some of these arrangements can be mixed into with music from new young alternative bands.

Be like Elliphant and venture out and explore the world of music.

If David Bowie Was Around He Would Jam With Hill & The Sky Heroes’ In NYC At Bar Nine

13240097_10156925729595284_3659763286701350051_n

Tomorrow night at 8:30pm in New York City at Bar Nine is a rare opportunity to see some exceptional talent, Hill & The Sky Heroes‘.  The band is a project of Hill Kourkoutis, award-winning songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and filmmaker. I have already alerted Leonardo DiCaprio, JLo, and Amedeo Turello who is curating the Pirell digital calendar.

Also in New York City at this time is another great Italian photographer filmmaker Sebastiano Vitale to whom I suggested he shoot the band through his adventurous lens.

Hill Kourkoutis was brought to my attention by a very dear friend of mine who loves Canadian talent record producer Tim Thorney.

So I caught up with Hill at the best possible place at a bar over an old fashion cocktail and instantly released why Hill and David Bowie would have connected on both a creative and intellectual level ( even though Bowie liked to say I’m not intellectual I’m just a pop musician).  Hill and the talented musicians with her simply do what they do for the sake of art, they seek no fame, but fame is what they will have.

Now I am the guy who blew off the Rolling Stones in Cuba to jet back to Toronto to see Prince’s Piano & A Microphone gig because I just knew how special.  So I’m giving all of you a heads-up , this is gonna be very special

I am also so excited to have a super talented photographer Sebastiano document the magic that will take place at 8:30pm at Bar Nine.  Go check out the gig.

No more blah, blah, blah, check out some of the YouTube videos just to get you into the mood.

Julia Roberts Lifts Her Dress To Expose No Shoes On Red Carpet Cannes 2016

13116735_1736474113231692_1918500116_n

Hey George guess what? I’m not wearing any shoes under my Armani Privé.

Hey Cannes take your uptight fashion rules and you know where you can go. George and Julia laughed away and had a blast.

Julia Roberts walked onto the red carpet at the premiere of Money Monster, the new movie in which she stars with George Clooney directed by Jodie Foster, in a fairly straightforward black gown.

However when Julia Roberts lifted her black dress wow, there was a shock awaiting all those fashion slaves and the cameras went off, Julia had no shoes, she was barefoot.

“Things have to change immediately. It has become really obvious that if [a man and I] were walking the red carpet together and someone stopped me and said, ‘Excuse me, young lady, you’re not wearing heels. You cannot come in.’ Then [I’m going to say], ‘Neither is my friend. Does he have to wear heels?’ It can work both ways. It’s just like you simply cannot ask me to do something that you are not asking him. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version—flats or heels,” – Kirsten Stewart
