FUNK, SOUL and view various music docs to debate and games
Below you will find details of my proposed new Funk and Soul event in English and Spanish. Initially i would like you to comment or add your name to indicate that you would be interested in joining us in this type of event. EVENT ONE: Hi everybody! I would like to invite you to join me in making my idea based around music become an event of mutual benefit and fun! The main musical genres will be R&B, Jazz, Pop, Blues and Indie. We will also be welcome to musical suggestions In this event, we would view various music documentaries, videos and shows about the well-known artists and unknown facts about the music industry in general. We would discuss who was responsible for certain lyrics, style of music, ideas, background and their general influence on you and the world. Where possible, subtitles or synopsis of the videos with possible quiz sheets and games to be completed whilst watching and enjoying the videos. We can discuss the meaning of the lyrics literally and your personal thoughts. In part this may be used as a mini English lesson and we can have fun by allowing you to ask/write your own questions in your own language. Discussions on artists/groups whose influence crossed generations, politics, racial harmony, geographical boundaries or divide and those whose voice or music has gone without significant recognition. This event will be organised initially every two weeks in a central location to be advised. We plan to listen to music and view videos before, after and during discussions. Please let me know if you would be interested in participating in such an event and have musical fun between, drinks, food, videos and discussion whilst meeting new people. ¡Hola a todos! Me gustaría invitaros a participar en un proyecto que estoy desarrollando, el cual tiene como tema principal la música (R&B, Jazz, Pop, Blues e Indie aunque se admiten más sugerencias en cuanto a géneros). En este evento se proyectarán varios documentales, vídeos y shows sobre artistas famosos para adentrarnos en la industria musical y conocer todas sus curiosidades. Debatiremos sobre ideas, artistas, letras de las canciones, estilos musicales y su influencia en la cultura global o a nivel personal. También habrá concursos y otros juegos relacionados con los documentales o videos que se proyecten. Todo ello puede servirte para mejorar tu inglés mientras lo pasas en grande en un ambiente distendido y divertido. Este evento está previsto que se organice cada dos semanas en algún lugar del centro de la ciudad, que se comunicará con antelación. El plan es escuchar música y ver vídeos antes, durante y después de los debates. Por favor, decidme si estáis interesados en participar en un evento de este tipo y disfrutar hablando sobre música y tomando algo mientras conoces nuevos amigos.
