英国5月文化精彩回顾(英)

2006-05-11 16:59British Council

Kano: Home Sweet HomeCD of the Month

Kano: Home Sweet Home (679 679L097CD £9.99)

Debut album from London-based Kano, aka 19-year-old Kane Robinson, the latest product of the vibrant UK garage scene commonly called grime. The recording features a whole host of producers including Southern hip hop DJ, Diplo, and Bloc Party producer Paul Epworth. The album mixes garage, forap and Cuban rhythms, resulting in a slice of British hip hop with crossover appeal. The singles Remember Me and Nite Nite are included. Although this album was released in 2005, it is still being talked about. Kano was nominated as best urban act in the recent Brit Awards. ‘Kano has grown in many directions, and somewhat miraculously, every one suits him.’ (Louis Pattison)

Film of the Month

Kidulthood directed by Menhaj Huda

24 hours in the life of inner-city adolescents in London. Promises to be the most controversial British film of the year. Written by Noel Clarke, who grew up on a council estate in Notting Hill. It has divided the critics with some calling for the film to be banned because of its graphical portrayal of sex and violence. Others have been impressed. 'There's a blast of energy and power in this brutal study of disaffected teens in northwest London.' (Peter Bradshaw) 'A refreshing, energetic, modern movie that documents urban teenagers' lives with wit and vigour.’ (Miranda Sawyer) But is this a true picture of modern urban youth?

Artwave Belfast

Art exhibition in Belfast’s City Hall, running from 24-29 April. It is designed to raise money for Wave, a grass roots, cross-community, voluntary organisation formed in 1991 to support people bereaved and anyone traumatised through the ‘Troubles'. The exhibition will feature a mix of works from established local and Irish artists as well as paintings by celebrities and Wave members. The event was launched by the actor James Nesbitt and the Deputy Lord Mayor of Belfast. Among the celebrities donating works of art are Robbie Williams, Bill Wyman and Damien Hirst.
