Bernie Ecclestone, BBC Asian Network and India ‘will host 2011 Grand Prix’. Next year? Very good.

“Johal Boliyan” – Kulvinder Johal ft Raman Aujla.

No sound for Asian Britain? Save the BBC Asian Network and 6 Music! From a blog and a deejay:

Trust has received 1000 complaints to keep Asian Network open. This is ridiculous. The station is key to the Asian music scene.  Seems apathy has reared its ugly head in regards to Save BBC Asian Network. Come on everyone, we can do better than 1000 complaints. EMAIL srconsultation@bbc.co.uk NOW to Save BBC Asian Network. Just be honest. Keep it simple or state your reasons for not closing it down.

22.11.09 – Thailand. Have you ever travelled to Thailand and Bangkok? Would you like to travel there? Please see below as well.

Mediterranean countries for “The Observer” and more

Italian… “Agriturismi” in Italy? Here there is an article by The Observer about Castellabate, the Cilento national park not very far from Naples, fried fresh anchovies with bread, olives and tomatoes and linguine with baby squid and broad beans. Should I write more about “agriturismi”? I am really addressing this question to tourists, and not to tourist operators…

Cancun, Mexico, Central America and Asia. Have you ever been to Cancun in Mexico or Thailand? And maybe from Sweden? Which are the flights? And where have you been?

Sitges. September in Spain from the UK? In Sitges? Do you know salsa music? Or maybe do you like to eat in tapas restaurants?

Again Italy. Do you like whales or dolphins in the Ligurian Sea or maybe Basilicata with southern Apennines and “bread from bakeries in Matera, wine from Aglianico and cheese from the mountains”? And do you like this list by The Observer?

An island. Sardinia‘s Supramonte Mountains and plateau, Sorgente Su Gologone and the Lanaittu Valley or a Nuraghic village. Any help needed by the Association for Tourist Services, Culture and Environment in Orgosolo or the Agrituristica Guthiddai? Would you like to taste boiled sheep, roasted pork, bread and salami or cheese, local wine and olive oil?

Going on with food, would you feel like eating almonds, carob, olive, pistachio and walnut trees? In Can Marti – Ibiza, Spain, with Swiss owners… Furthermore there is “homemade bread with local jam and honey”…

Spain and France. And what about Cortes de la Frontera in Spain and a lot of place in France like Béziers, the Languedoc, the Canal du Midi and Carcassonne? Or the vineyards of Minervois, Ventenac and the Cathar castle at Lastours? A wind farm there…

Burgundy and gay naturism. A gay naturist retreat in Burgundy by Citronniers with a price of 80 euros per night per person with a 3-course evening meal, full English breakfast, lunch and all drinks included.

Marche. And would you like mountains’ cycling holidays in Alpujarras, Spain, as the second page of the article offers? Or an agriturismo in Le Marche, Italy? Here more information…

Cycling and eating. Do you know the village of Bérchules and the Alpujarras? And the Sierra Nevada above Granada and the Mulhacén in Spain? Do you like mountains’ cycling and picnicking? You should pay 630 euros a week.

Farming. A country house and organically run farm in Le Marche, Italy… What? A five-course evening meal?! Incredible… And “heating is solar-powered and there’s a wood-fired stove fuelled by coppicing from the farm woods”. Plus truffle-hunting not very far from Rimini, Urbino and Ancona. Doubles from €110 including breakfast.

Ssese’s Islands. Do you know where the tropical Ssese’s Islands are? If you would like to know it, please see this reportage by Richard Eilers for The Observer… Sands, forest walks, a lake, fried tilapia, above all the rapids and Bob Marley… And, moreover, as for names, Kampala, the MS Kalangala from Entebbe to Bugala, Lutoboka, Kibale Forest national park and the Bassese and, as for animals, gorillas and chimpanzees…

The Nile. And do you know what mzungu means, who Idi Amin is and where Jinja and the Bujagali Falls are? Clues for my question are the Nile and the lakes Nyinambuga and Victoria… Last, but not least, have you ever been to the Ssese Islands Beach Hotel, the Haven, the Ndali Lodge and to the Gately on Nile? Have you ever met South Africans or Americans?

Aircraft. You can fly to Entebbe from Brussels with Brussels Airlines on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10.40 to 19.35; from Amsterdam and from London Heathrow to Entebbe  with KLM. Among the other national parks in Uganda there would be the Bwindi Impenetrable national park in the south-west, Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth national parks and “the Foreign Office advises against travel to the Karamoja region, in the north-east”.

Difficult situation for Less tourists in Ireland with visitors from Britain down by 22.8 per cent or from other parts of Europe by 20 per cent. Sad situation, but let’s hope…

Southern Italy. What follows is not an ad and I know my readers should be very intelligent. So I add this link to a project for 122 two and three bed villas and townhouses near Sciacca, Sicily, Italy.

You could add some interpretations of them to the list…

He will play at the “National Black Arts Festival” with films that should be curated by the so-called Pan African Film Festival… There should also be a discussion with Grammy-nominated trumpeter and composer Russell Gunn.

Texas and… I would also ask you what do you think of the music couple Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz… How were their concerts? They should have taken place at the Continental Club in Austin, Texas; at the Canal Street Tavern in Dayton, Ohio; at The 5 Spot in Atlanta, GA; at the Square Room Knoxville, Tennessee; at the Grey Eagle Music Hall in Asheville and at the Student Union Great Hall of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, both in North Carolina…

The Observer. Surely they were reviewed by The Observer, one of the most known British Sunday papers, and I heard their interpretation of “Ego Flos Campi” by Clemens non Papa and I was quite impressed…  Their third album is Song of Songs, published by Harmonia mundi, and their other CDs are Heavenly Harmonies and Music for Compline. And…

Trovesi. It almost starts with Claudio Monteverdi’s “Orfeo” – the composition by the famous musician lived between the 16th and 17th centuries – with the “Toccata”,  and then goes on later with “Ah, fors’è lui che l’anima” and “È Piquillo, un bel gagliardo”, extracted from Verdi’s “La traviata”.

Music flower. “Profumo di Violetta” by the very famous Italian jazzist Gianluigi Trovesi focuses on the Italian opera and takes its name first of all from the important protagonist of “La traviata”, but also – without a capital letter – from the flower, the violet (in fact it may be very like to the meaning “Scent of violet”). The work also includes “Il cavallo scalpita” from Pietro Mascagni’s “Cavalleria rusticana”, “Stizzoso, mio stizzoso” from Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s “La serva padrona”, “Largo al factotum” from Gioacchino Rossini’s “Il barbiere di Siviglia” and an excerpt inspired by Giacomo Puccini’s “Tosca”. Gianluigi Trovesi plays this album with a large North-Italian wind orchestra – about 60 musicians of the  “Filarmonica Mousiké” – that may be named a “banda” in his mother tongue and includes percussion players.

From 8:30 pm the Mc Coy Tiner Trio will play with Bill Frisell, Gary Bartz and John Scofield.
