The Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison celebrated Nina Simone once as saying that she had "saved our lives," Simone had but their songs motivated and inspired the civil rights movement of the sixties. In their songs, the world learned with rare openness the expression of anger, strength and self-doubt as the dream of a peaceful society change in favor of a black America was buried for a long time with the death of Martin Luther King, Jr.. As Duke Ellington and Miles Davis refused and Simone the word jazz fOr their music from, because it fOr most whites "black and filth" would mean: They contrast black played classical music.
As Malia decades later with their French Trio receives this haunting and empowered tribute album fOr Nina Simone, she joins fOr a circle. That life had in store at many levels severe tests for Nina, is in her autobiography "My black soul" described in detail, but fOr Malia include those details only really when she feels well in the song. At Nina Simone Malia admired precisely the gift of making the seemingly simple things of life, the pain and the passion, the love and the death of something huge and Bathroom Private. Deep feelings, which are transported by the voice, good lyrics, able to penetrate very different worlds whose poetry. Malia fascinated the human warmth that was so present in Nina's music. "When Nina classics like, Do not Explain 'and' Porgy 'sings, you feel exactly as they were by their interpretations of their songs. The suffering and lawlessness of black American woman was a topic that Nina has then very busy and it has committed to. But what touched me today, is that their songs will still be valid when the social changed circumstances. What I mean by human depth, if one is suppressed, must fight it. "
Malia loves "My Baby Just Cares" especially because of the melody and that special feeling, how nice it is to be loved. Malia wanted to record a ballad album and therefore the pace appears halved even with an internally beaming song like "My Baby Just Cares". In "Do not Explain" the opposite is discussed, "How it feels when you love the wrong person, and yet stays together". In "Four Women" is about different experiences of African-American women, but Malia hears and feels the great Simone song not only as a historical treatise about racism and what it once meant to live as a black woman in the United States. Malia hears and interprets "Four Women" as a ballad about the human capacity for suffering, "I can identify with any of these women. I grew up with segregation and oppression, I have learned that the world is more than a Monopoly fOr white people. " In the great songs that has Malia chosen your album, it comes in endless variations to love and missed opportunities and to lyrics and melodies that speak directly to the heart. What Nina Simone has made so great was their artistic ability, racism to overcome."
Malia grew up in Malawi, her mother was black, her father a white British engineer. Malawi was a former British colony and strongly influenced by segregation and racism that their parents had lived together not provided and brought problems. Life in the ex-colony describes Malia closed and unworldly, separated from the West, "In a bubble". Only when she moved to London - Malia was fourteen - up Opened the world. When she worked later in a jazz restaurant, she learned to love the music that she sings even today. She discovered the good plates and Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald were their teachers. Jazz became her music, the jazz community to a new home. "Songs like Strange Fruit 'and' Young, Gifted and Black 'taught me to be strong and proud. I did not have Duran Duran, for me the Jazz became the soundtrack of my life. "
If Malia today Nina Simone sings, which also has to do with the fact that she now feels in himself this certain maturity, a deep understanding that goes far over the language. It corresponds to their life experience, the mentor to give thanks in this manner. The stories that sang and handed down Simone, playing Malia interpretations starring, Malia preserves those melodies of minimalist intoxicating correct size and sharpened them with clear, imploring recitations too. If Malia today Nina Simone sings, she thinks of a black orchid. "Rare, beautiful, powerful, mystical, extraterrestrial black, overwhelming."
