Art Quote of the Day

That time when Angelique Kidjo covered an entire Talking Heads album ....

"Almost a year to the day later, Kidjo released her own dramatically different, but still strangely faithful, version of “Remain in Light.” The original album was a trailblazing and esoteric art rock/Afrobeat hybrid heavily influenced by Fela Kuti; Kidjo’s version is earthier, powered by African percussion and chanting choirs. “Remain in Light” is in some ways a distinctly American rock album, but Kidjo figured that since rock was originally cobbled together from African musical styles like R&B and the blues, rock is essentially African, too."

Japan's Art Island: Naoshima

Very much looking forward to visiting next month!

"Naoshima, commonly known as Japan’s art island, is a tiny island in the Seto Inland Sea, and one of our absolute favorite places in Japan.
Until the early 1990s, Naoshima was a remote and sleepy island, but — thanks in large part to an art-loving Japanese businessman’s vision — it has gradually become one of the world’s most unique destinations for art lovers and travelers seeking one-of-a-kind experiences.
The island was included in National Geographic’s 19 Places to Indulge Yourself, featuring tips from Boutique Japan founder Andres Zuleta!"
