One Take: From Elsie Houston to Carmen Miranda by Iara Rennó

On the Sunday before Stevie Wonder took Los Angeles on a Global Soul journey at the Hollywood Bowl. A different journey was being tracked by a young singer from Brasil in front of Graumanns Chinese Theatre. In one take here unedited, covering the song made famous by songstress Elsie Houston – Iara Renno traced the journey of another young Brasilian of Portuguese descent Carmen Miranda. Iara is a good friend of Mochilla and a third generation singer/songwriter. She looked after us when we went to premiere Timeless in Rio. She has a keen sense of history especially of the twenties and thirties. Her Operatic Ballet based on Macunaíma the famous magical, allegorical novel by ethno-musicologist Mario de Andrade is an inspiring piece. To see her work an unsuspecting crowd on Hollywood Boulevard on Sunday reminds us of the era when CGI and Darth Vader impersonators didn’t exist.

IN MEMORY OF ELSIE HOUSTON
By Iara Renno

eh eh eh
eh eh ah
where is my turtledove
who fled the cage…

Turtledove, a traditional song, was recorded in the 30’s by Elsie Houston. She was the daughter of a father from the U.S and a mother in Rio. She is Carmen Miranda’s contemporary, a friend of Pagu and Mário de Andrade. Elsie was part of this group of artists who invented indigenous Brazilian culture. Today I find myself entranced by their memory and, like them (Carmen and Elsie), somehow I ended up here in ‘Los Angeles’. My mother has the last name Miranda (no relation), and I am the turtledove, whose destiny is to sing and fly around the world.

Ê ê ê
ê ê ah
cadê minha pomba-rola
que fugiu lá do pombal…

Pomba-Rola, canção de domínio público, foi gravada na década de 30 por Elsie Houston. Filha de pai norte-americano e mãe carioca, contemporânea de Carmen Miranda, amiga de Pagu e Mário de Andrade, Elsie fez parte desse grupo de artistas que trouxeram à tona a cultura genuinamente brasileira. Já não é de hoje minha identificação com esse sentimento… é desse mesmo ponto que parto, e, assim como Carmen e Elsie, de algum modo vim parar aqui na ‘América’. Minha mãe tem Miranda no nome, e minha herança é essa memória genética dos passáros, cujo destino é cantar e voar pelo mundo.

like life should be*

blips, drips and strips.

my new [beautiful] addiction : blips, drips and strips : on repeat./

I pick up by the handful
the somber heap at my feet
eyes closed to see the hopeful
trusting my deepest instinct

I pick up by the handful
the somber heap at my feet
eyes closed to see the hopeful
trusting my deepest instinct

but I go on,
dawning light,
task of hope

in a dawn light,
task of hope,
these are stars

at last dare to raise my eyes,
I saw the ship in the stars
strong of glittering fleet,
bringing light to the new born

I pick up by the handful
the somber heap at my feet
eyes closed to see the hopeful
trusting my deepest instinct

at last dare to raise my eyes,
I saw the ship in the stars
strong of glittering fleet,
bringing light to the new born

(but I go on, task of hope, dawning light)

TIMELESS SCREENS IN BRASIL!


VTech and Mochilla have collaborated on many groundbreaking musical events, but the pinnacle was in 2009 with the amazing Timeless Series that was brought to Los Angeles. It truly was the beginning. Where musical borders were no longer seen as obstacles, and where composer arrangers who were once overlooked were wholeheartedly embraced. From the series, celebrated Brasilian composer/arranger was one of three, and now, we find the Timeless series traveling to Arthur’s home country in fitting fashion.

J.Rocc, Coleman and B+ will be in Sao Paulo from February 9-11th screening at the Espaco Unibanco de Cinema and then on the 16-18th at the Unibanco Arteplex Botafogo in Rio de Janeiro. Each film will be screened individually and also J.Rocc will have a chance to do his special Timeless Serato Mega-Mix. There will be Q&As each night with special friends dropping by to contribute.

Share the info, share the music, share the experience. And as always, “Turn it Up!!”
