Politricks 2.0

*This was actually going to be published in Clamor Mag but there were complications…

 

The genocide in Darfur, Sudan has been one of the most devastating genocides in Africa’s history. Thousands died, if not by the mass killings of the Arab military then by starvation and disease. Few were able to escape the misery of the constant escaping from military forces and come to America. Isaac Majak was part of the lucky group of children granted U.S. sponsorship and wishes to share his story with the world in hope that others will join the humanitarian effort to rebuild Sudan and save the people.

 

Lost Boys Of Sudan: Isaac Majak Interview

How did the people of your village find food, fresh water and other resources?

Before the war, it was really good because people used to cultivate, they had their own homes, and they had wells and all these water taps. The life was really terrible and it’s hard for people to live but they just keep living because there is no other way that they can really improve it. Yet, it was definitely better before the war. But now if some people come and help life will be a lot better.

What was life like when you were younger?

My life was really good because my father was working in the government and he was an agriculture man. He was an architect, building and constructing. He was like a person that was always making peace. Also, I have older brothers and sisters, I am the second to last, and I am number 7 of eight in my family.

How did the tensions between the Arabs and the Non-Arabs begin and escalate?

The war, it was really bad. The government was fighting over the resources of Sudan. The northern people think that they are born to rule, the Arabs say that they want to rule over the world. During the war, the southern military would defend the area but they did not have weapons. They did not know about modern weapons so civilians just stayed in bushes and would leave at night and get water and come back to the bushes.

How did the quality of life in terms of access to fresh food, water and resources change when tensions and between Arabs and Non-Arabs escalated?

Actually everyone is like a new person in the country because people are coming back, inheriting new homes and new places because it was a long time, 21 years war, and people were living away and had skipped to other countries. It was really hard for people to get water because there are no water fountains and rivers are very far away from villages.

 

Now there is no rain, it is drought season and people are really having a hard time. It takes a woman and a young girl 6 hours to go to the river to fetch water and to come back. Also, food was very hard. They especially get food through people who have fled to other countries and bring back food. This is really how they get food in Sudan and they are suffering because right now the government is not at a time where they can employ people. No jobs, no nothing. They are concentrating on peace and how they can work together with the northern government.

What happened to your family? How were all of you separated?

My older sisters and brothers were sent to Arabic school but my father saw that Arabic school was not that good so he took them to Kimbori school where British missionaries taught them English and Arabic. In 1983 the war broke out and all the young kids and students from the south were captured by the north and put in a building. They were captured by the North Arab Military; they put them in a building and burned them. My father was killed in 1986 but I did not know at the time because I was really young. Most of my family was killed so I had to escape with the rest.

Who are the Lost Boys of Sudan?

I am one of them. The Lost Boys of southern Sudan are the kids in 1987 that escaped during the big killings. The young kids and women who escaped all came together so when the Arabs saw us they sent soldiers to kill us, so we had to keep running like 100,000 miles from the south, across the Sahara desert to Ethiopia. During the traveling or escaping, thousands of kids were left behind because they were dying from hunger and diseases. Most of the time we stayed in the jungle, no father, no nothing. There were few adults. The adults put 500, 700 children in a confined place and teach us how to build huts so we could live in them. They were not that good but we needed to go from place to place in order to escape the killing. We stayed in Ethiopia for four years. In 1991 we had to leave because the civil war in Ethiopia broke out. That led us to come to Sudan again and when the northern Arab government heard we came back they attacked us, so we were just running until we got to northern Kenya. It was there that we were chosen by Americans to come to the U.S. as the Lost Boys of Sudan.

What did people do stay optimistic during your travels?

Some of the elders would come and tell us “today we are suffering and don’t know what to do, we don’t know if this will be are end of our night here we die tonight to maybe tomorrow we will go somewhere and we’ll live to be good people. So lets all stay in hope. Don’t worry about being killed, worry about where you can go to be safe.” We just listened to each other to keep hope.

How long did it take to reach Ethiopia?

It took about 3 months walking.

Did the Arabs ever come close to finding you?

Yes, they were always killing us. They would find us and they would come with airplanes and bomb us. In the desert you can see everyone walking so it was easy for them.

What was the scariest moment you experienced during your journey?

When they came and attacked us in the desert. I was talking to one person that night and when I woke up they died. You just kept worrying that maybe tomorrow you would die like that. Even today I always dream about it and I will never forget it. It’s something that shows life is not guaranteed. I didn’t know I would come to U.S.; maybe the help of god helped me to come here.

Was there ever a point where you felt like giving up?

My whole life was full of worry. I worried about where my father was. What made me to be in the jungle and what can I do to escape this and look for my people again. Because my father was killed I was like “why should I live, I have no father” and my mom was not around.

How were you chosen for sponsorship to the US?

In 1997, the U.S. government officials came and interviewed us about our main goal or hope. “If we give you a chance to come to the US, go to school and give you a better life. What do you think about that?” We said we don’t know but we want to go home and find our fathers. Everyone said the same thing, “We want to go home.” Then they said, “Where are you going to find your father?” We said we don’t know we’ll just go back to our village and they said no one lives there anymore.

 

In 1998 they said they wanted to make a process where we could come to America for schooling. They said we can learn, get a diploma, degrees, a good job, a home and maybe get married and have families like our fathers did so that made us want to come to America. We had interviews and medical exams and if we passed the tests we were sent to the U.S. 4800 boys and 500 girls passed and the rest could not come.

What economic forces contribute to the war in Sudan and famine in other parts of Africa?

I think that people in Africa, they are not focusing on economy; they are focusing on power over other people in order to declare or destroy sub-clans or tribes. Tribalism is a big problem in Africa and they don’t really use an economy. Right now I think the government is working on gold and oil but I don’t know if it will help.

Has international trade and global free trade policies helped or hurt Sudan?

When we have connections with other countries like Kenya, Ethiopia, and Uganda you can get companies to ship donated goods to Sudan faster. Like Australia will send to Kenya and from there to Sudan. Australians are helping a lot more than Americans. Most of what the Americans are doing is at a government level but not with people who are suffering, not with the civilians.

A lot of Americans are under the impression that hunger and famine in Africa are a result of natural phenomena like drought, is drought really a major cause?

Drought causes starvation because people depend on cultivating crops. We do not have other ways of business to get money. Drought is the major one so irrigation is key. They need purified water. It costs a lot of money to make 1 lb of water and many misuse it. Other than that, diseases. We need a health clinic. There are many curable diseases, small diseases that are killing people due to lack of medicines.

 

What do you foresee happening in Sudan’s future?

They said the war will start again. People are really scared because Arabs are not really deciding on peace. They don’t want what happened to Iraq to happen to Sudan so they just want to do a secret way of killing people again. They just make a picture of peace in Sudan but there really is no peace. Now that there is no more United Nations in Darfur, they won’t know if anything is happening in Sudan. I think for life in Sudan, there will be no improvement. Although the United Nations, U.S. and other countries like Australia and Britain can work together and solve the problem the African Union cannot do anything. It is powerless they cannot do peace. Somalia, Rwanda, all these countries they have problems and they can’t do anything. They are not strong; they cannot settle the problem and make peace. There is no hope for Black people in Sudan, not even just Black people. Now Black people are treated poorly in their own country, like slaves. It’s not fair for human beings in this world, but I cannot do anything, I try.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

After living in the US for 5 years I noticed a lot of things, especially when I was in high school. The way young girls and boys go to school is good but the way they react to school and the environment needs correction. They take it for granted, they don’t care. They all say “I have to do what I have to do, I am who I am” when they really do need to care and they need to do stuff to get along with people. Freedom in America allows kids to grow up and do whatever he or she wants to do which is good, but they don’t want guidance, they are more interested in fun.

It makes me cry to think of why countries like U.S., Canada, and the U.K., powerful countries, aren’t helping the poor countries. It makes me go crazy. There will be hope if industrialized countries come and help. If they are aware I think they can do something because we’ve waited too long, it’s been too long.

White Lines

•August 8, 2007 • Leave a Comment

dcvdrugs_cover.jpg

Ever since Melle Mel’s 1983 hit “White Lines,” cocaine has long been a fixture in rap. As the crack epidemic took its course, everyone from De La Soul to N.W.A. had crack-cocaine on the mind with songs like “My Brother’s a Basehead” and “Dopeman.” Hip-hop had made one thing clear, being strung out was by all means unheard of and looked down upon; selling drugs, however, was conversely, the most preferred form of employment next to rhyming and playing basketball. As drug laws became more severe and unequal for cocaine and crack-cocaine, dealers shifted from selling freebase to shoveling snow. As the drug game changed, rappers did not hesitate to lace their rhymes with tales of courting their “white girl” and delivering “the raw uncut.” Alleged drug dealing rappers have used their album covers to portray their drug past

The Clipse – Hell Hath No Fury
The Clipse have long considered themselves the bakers’ men of the industry. Cooking coke to crack has become a staple in their rap persona and the cover of Hell Hath No Fury exhibits this. On the cover, Malice and Pusha T are lounging around an old-fashioned oven affront a money covered wall. The oven represents the process needed to create crack from cocaine and the crowns The Clipse are wearing represent what they believe to be their rule over hip-hop and drug sale alike.

Juelz Santana & JR Writer – Sugar Hill 2
The self proclaimed human crack in the flesh, Juelz Santana, has, for a long time, rapped about the trials and tribulations of the drug game. The cover of Santana and JR Writer’s mixtape Sugar Hill 2, epitomizes his Dope boy image. Juelz sits in a corner office dressed in a black pinstripe suit and signature bandana, blazed with blunt in hand hovering desk piled with cocaine. JR Writer stands behind Juelz in a Diplomats tee proudly boasting a hand full of money. As opposed to former Diplomat Cam’ron’s signature pink, the cover art’s theme is violet, signifying royalty and Dipset’s reign over the rap and coke industry.

Scarface – The Fix
The Geto Boys constituent, Scarface, went the extra mile with the cover art of his album, The Fix. The front cover shows an empty shot glass and a small mirror atop an old card table. Within the reflection of the mirror is Scarface glaring back in a tan suit and fedora. The inside cover features a picture of a rundown kitchen as well as a pocket that holds “the fix,” a mock dime bag filled with booklet album details. This indicates that Scarface delivers the raw uncut both musically and in the coke realm.

Ghostface Killah – Fishscale
As one ninth of the Wu-Tang clan, Ghostface has always been the most open with his drug affiliations and has demonstrated this throughout his music with album themes and cover art dedicated to the drug hustle. The album Fishscale shows Ghost in a worker men’s shirt with fish scale printed across the front and gloves with a fisherman’s knife in one hand skinning the fish in the other on a dock. Fishscale is drug terminology for very potent cocaine named for its shiny and flaky texture. The large net full of fish demonstrates the extent of Ghost’s coke career signifying that his “fishscale will always flood the streets.”

Ok so I finally got an OiNK invite, days after I discovered the site existed and of course my novice torrent downloading skills got me banned from uploading within a week. Apparently there’s strict transcoding rules and I fucked up by uploading a Fall Out Boy Mega Remix which wasn’t formatted correctly or something like that and was given a warning. This is why CDs and good ole limewire cannot die, internet junkies take their music too seriously. I did however get a hold of Keith Murray’s new album and the KRS/Marly Marl joint and I wasn’t completely disappointed. Rather than write a review, see what Keith Murray has to say himself…

MY ALBUM’S OUT: Keith Murray
By: Yours truly

Nobody knows the real Keith Murray – he says so himself. According to the Long Island-bred Def Squad emcee, unfortunate circumstances- from label disputes to jail time – compromised his sound and passion on every one of his albums – from The Most Beautifullest Thing In This World to He’s Keith Murray. But with Rap-murr-phobia, released today, the tables have turned. On a new independent label, Koch Entertainment, Murray has found the freedom to drop an album unbound by commercial standards and formulas. With Rap-murr-phobia, Murray’s goal was to target his core audience – who he believes to be real hip hop heads – and he enlisted the talents of Erick Sermon, Mike City and German beatmaker Shuko. Keith Murray: his album’s out.

So, you’re from Long Island?
I’m from Strong Island. Central Heights and Strong Island/Crown Heights in Brooklyn.

What was it like growing up there?
It’s your typical urban area. Drugs, domestic violence, death, jail. It’s spread out, so you’re not on top of families like the city. For the most part, it had its good times and bad times.

How has that affected your music?
It let me tell you that no matter where you at, there’s still positive and negative in life. Everything in life is positive and negative. You can’t have one without the other so people will [inaudible] you as Long Island is soft. Long Island is pretty and cute. Naw they don’t know it, there’s black areas where black people are sectioned off, given the worse jobs if any, mad drugs and mad death. Kids is shooting kids, babies having babies. The black community is crazy all over, not just where you at. It’s a shame. I found that out by traveling. Everywhere I go reminds me of the city and the town I’m from, nothing’s different, but you go to another like Riker’s Island. They think Long Island is soft. I be like yo, y’all dudes is crazy. We all the same people.

Word on the street is that before your recorded your first album you battled Big Daddy Kane.
My uncle from Brooklyn used to bodyguard for him, so I just had the opportunity to rhyme with him.

How did that impact your career?
It gave me courage. Encouraged me. After I rhymed, he said ‘How old are you?’ – surprised that I was that nice. So you know, I went home like yo, I can battle with Kane. I was invincible. That made me step my game up a million percent. He was Big Daddy Kane, Raw, and he was like, yo, you nice. I’m like 15. Like, ok, can’t nobody ever see me now.

Can you tell me more about the album?
The album is Rap-murr-phobia. Rap is what I do, Murr is the first four letters of my last name, phobia is the fear that they have of a real hip hop artist. I can see it in public when I walk down the street…The media fears us. Rap ain’t selling, they bashing hip hop. The politicians say hip hop is the cause of this, hip hop is the cause of that. Well, I am hip hop, so have them fear when I come out, because I will do what I want to do to target my core audience. This album is for my core audience, not for those who don’t understand it. It’s for those who love it and understand it. My album is produced by Erick Sermon. It’s got 18 tracks with three skits. I got a producer on there from LA name Mike City, dope ass record on there. My next single is called “Hustle On” produced by a German producer named Shuko.

You mentioned that people aren’t realizing what a real hip hop artist is. What would you say is a real hip hop artist?
Well I ain’t say they didn’t recognize what a real hip hop artist is. My core audience does. I’m not tryna convince anybody else, but I’m representing hip hop for those who tryna shut us down. What I figure a real hip hop artist is, is a person that’s original, tells the truth, understands the history and the culture – [someone who’s] not just getting in it for money. It takes some real hip hop individuals that work hard to achieve the things they do.

Eve once said that when rappers get signed, they’re not involved with ciphers or battles anymore. Do you think that’s true?
Most definitely, because they’re sure that somebody else is going to defeat them, and then their value would go down. You jeopardizing a lot when you challenge somebody and they get the best of you and it’s known?! That shit can ruin your career.

One of my favorite tracks is that first single called “Nobody Do It Better,” featuring Keri. It’s produced by Erick Sermon, and it explains Keith Murray – past, present, and where I’m taking things after Def Jam.

Def Jam was a sour deal. There was controversy. People said I did things I didn’t do, and there was a lot of misconceptions in magazines. Like, oh, he had anger issues – things of that nature. So I listen and sat very quietly, [and I thought about] myself and my career and the point I’m at. And I put it in a record and everybody loves it.

I got a song called “Hustle On.” It’s a motivational song. “Mama wasn’t rich, my Daddy wasn’t poor/I couldn’t take no more / I had to get my hustle on.” I got a track called “Don’t Fuck With Em,” mainly about people who cling to you when you got something, but when your situation ain’t at its peak, they run – when you need them, they ain’t never around. I got a record with the Def Squad, which is Erick and Redman, called “You Ain’t Nobody.” I sat down and really really really thought about this album that’s why I love all the sons so much because they so meaningful and they dope as hell and I took my time and I studied myself, my history. Why people like me and things of that nature and then I just went back to my true essence. That’s why I love this album so much – because it’s so me. Nobody was around when I was recording it, no label telling me what I should do or what I can’t do or what they ain’t feelin’, breaking my spirits. This one’s got my spirits up. I listen to it all the time. I love it.

What message are you trying to send with this record?
I just wanted to reestablish myself as one of the dopest lyricists that ever touched the microphone: subject matter, thought provoking, innovative flow, and an extensive vocabulary. I represent a take on the spectrum of hip hop that is not occupied by any other artist. What I did with this album, I reestablished myself, I been doing it for four years and let people know that I really still can do this because I know I can and I feel I can within my heart and my soul.

My last two albums wasn’t completed by me. I was in jail when It’s a Beautiful Thing came out – I was in jail and told them, naw, don’t put it out, it ain’t finished. They put it out anyway. I was unsatisfied. With the last album, it stopped being fun to record. After Def Jam had their little controversy with Kevin Liles and Lyor Cohen leaving. It just stopped being fun. This album, I went back to The Most Beautifullest Thing In This World and Enigma and all of Redman’s first albums and I listened. Sat down and put myself in that frame of mind and then me and Erick started recording it. and it was fun and through the whole thing. We started from scratch we didn’t use much samples… it’s just mad fun and dope. I’m back to the original me. I feel within myself. People may not have known that it wasn’t the original me but I’m 100% comfortable with this album.

How would you describe the sound of the original you, if your past albums haven’t been that authentic?
The sound would be a concentrated sound, concentrated flow. Before I was trying things. I stuck to the way I recorded my most potent album. I stuck to my methods before I was taken out of my zone. Like when you hear my first single, you know I have a distinctive sound. I rhyme over open beats, meaning the beats be musical instead of like loud and grungy.

What’s your processes for writing or recording a track?
I don’t answer no phones. I sit at the table, play the beat, smoke some weed, stay in a positive state of mind and then I just build. I build off significant factors in my life and the art of emceeing and coming up with new flows – just staying on the cutting edge. I listen to a track, it’ll tell me what to do or I’ll have something for it. I’m a [music] architect.

Why should people go out and buy your album.
If you love hip hop you love this album, simple and plain. Every song, you can play back to back to back to back to back over and over again. It’s for the females. I know a lot of females that love hip hop more than half the dudes that say they do. There’s just not a lot of aggressive young women. It’s not just physical. So check out my new video, vote for the record when you hear it. Go to myspace.com/keithmurray, hit me up. Get that album today and support. People say, Yo I didn’t know the album was out or Niggas ain’t putting out real hip hop no more. This is real hip hop. Support it; make it a success for all of us. It ain’t just for me to get money. It’s for hip hop to move further.

Girls You Know You Better…Watch Out

•July 11, 2007 • Leave a Comment

yes this is a repost made from ages ago because I felt guilty for never updating.


Light contacts, long hair and a skin tone shades lighter than we had remembered her, during her affair with the late Biggie Smalls. This shows to say what a big record deal, insecurity, mainstream influence, and a few hundred years of conditioning can buy you.She’s dropped several albums, one even to an impressive double platinum status and her most recent piece, “The Naked Truth,” has even broken boundaries as the first album by a female artist to be given the accredited “5 mic” rating by The Source magazine. By industry standards, she is the culmination of Hip Hop’s female evolution. She is our…strong Black female. There she stands. The future of Rap for women across the country, Lil Kim. Accompanied by the likes of Trina, Remy Ma, Foxy Brown and Jackie-O, Lil Kim has symbolized the result of a misogynistic Rap game, an oversexed mainstream and a void of talent unmatched by any female in the industry since Lauryn Hill. If it wasn’t a sex icon rapper it was the masculine females like MC Lyte or Queen Latifah who earned little respect for their street-like appeal or contributions to Hip Hop. But let us not forget the confused artists like Missy Elliott and Da Brat, who limboed between the two artist molds as the trends changed to work in their favor.

It’s just as the author of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, Jeff Chang, said; every female artist has either filled the mold of a “boy toy” or a tomboy. Because Rap is such a male dominated genre, female artists are either emulating the male artists’ definitions of masculinity by using a tomboy image, or using sex appeal to set themselves apart. The “boy toys” are viewed as nothing more than “pieces of ass” and the tomboys are pushed aside as “one of the guys.” Both however, do not receive any respect or acclaim from their male counterparts or the media.

Where are our strong females?

We last saw one at the Grammys, where she won an unprecedented 8 awards in 1999. Lauryn Hill was the epitome of a strong Black female and a jack of all trades. Her lyrical ability paralleled that of some of Rap’s greatests and her voice, production and songwriting capabilities made her a well rounded commodity, yet today we see no one of the like.

Has Hip Hop become so naïve that we’ve allowed corporate America and pop culture trends to transcend our women from queens to soft porn stars? It’s literally embarrassing to remain speechless when music enthusiasts ask who are today’s female movers and shakers, simply because the only viable responses are insulting. Who are our children’s role models, because it is evident that R&B holds no hope in that realm when our chart toppers, Cassie and Beyonce lay scantily clad in their videos asking the audience “tell me how you like it” and to “check up on it” respectively. Women have made significant strides in the workforce so the backwards sprint in music is quite frankly, sad and appalling.

Like in the “conscious” vs. the “gangster” rap debate, many argue that it’s just music. Simply entertainment made to pass the time and give listeners something to dance and shoot the breeze to; But when that entertainment just enforces racial profiling and discourages fathers from birthing daughters, in fear that they might discover their “S.E.X.” sooner than they would expect, is it still just entertainment? Like Black Ice says, “music is potent it goes straight to the soul so it’s much more addictive than crack is.” Dead Prez argues that we “can’t sell dope forever” but in essence we can. Hip Hop has been dealt into one of the most influential cultural epidemics but like crack, Hip Hop constituents will be left dead, broke and forgotten if we let it get out of hand.

So the next time you hear that oversexed, beat driven club banger from Remy Ma or Kim, hesitate to nod your head in agreement, because our “strong Black female” might be the first Rap element to disappear.

Paris Hilton…

•July 2, 2007 • 1 Comment

Since when does celebrity triumph over ethics? How is it that Isaiah Washington will get slaughtered for saying homophobic statements but Ms. Paris Hilton can drop n-words left and right without being challenged? Even rappers and producers continue to work with her despite the fact she thinks “black people steal shit” and are “whores who have sex for coke.” On many occasions, often on youtube video might I add does Paris share a little of her bigot wisdom and says something ignorant about Blacks, Jews, Japanese, you name it she’s said something offensive and down right racist yet still everyone is more concerned in throwing a party for her prison release. Why the double standard? Why the out right bullshit? I bet if all Paris fans saw every single video where Paris says some ignorant trash they’d still worship her like idiot lemmings.

If I was President. I’d get elected on Friday, Assasinated on Saturday, Buried on Sunday.

Election time is coming…..

If I was President
I’d get elected on Friday
Assassinated on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
If I was president,
If I was president

An old man told me
Instead of spending
Billions on the war
We can use some of that money
In the ghetto
I know some so poor
When it rains that’s when they shower
Screaming fight the power
That’s when the vulture devours

If I was President
I’d get elected on Friday
Assassinated on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
If I was president,
If I was president,
If I was president,
If I was president

But the radio won’t play this
They call it rebel music,
How can you refuse it?,
Children of Moses

If I was President
I’d get elected on Friday
Assassinated on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
If I was president,
If I was president,

Tell the children the truth, the truth
Christopher Columbus didn’t discover America
Tell them the truth,
The truth, Yeah
Tell them about Marcus Garvey
Tell the children the truth, yeah
The Truth
Tell them about Martin Luther King
Tell them the truth
The truth
Tell them about JFK

If I was President,
If I was President
I’d get elected on Friday
Assassinate on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
If I was president,
If I was president

Gotta love Wyclef.

Values, stances and potentials aside, if elected who would get assasinated, Barack Obama or Hilary Clinton?

America has shown a history of assasinating anyone with even the slightest inclination of promoting positive change. I.e. Abe Lincoln, JFK, MLKJ, Malcolm X, etc so would Obama or Clinton be any different? They’re both minorities and arguably radical in their pursuit for presidency so would they too be at risk? Sadly Dave Chappelle was right in a hilariously twisted way when he said he’d never want to be the first Black president. As much as he’d like to see a Black president, America isn’t ready for one and the first would get assasinated. Instead he’d want to be the second Black president and have “a mexican” for a vice president and enemies would go for him instead. Honestly America isn’t ready for a female president either, quite frankly America isn’t ready for a president that actually gets things accomplished. It would mean that everyone would have to start getting involved in the electoral process and live up to the values and constitution of the United States and we’re much too lazy for that “nonsense.” Fuck an ideology, I want my six figures, house on the hill and that sexy ass iphone. 2008 is approaching and its apparent that no one is ready, its kind of scary, intimidating maybe but we’d be lying if we didn’t admit we’re on the edge of our seats waiting to see what happens. Besides, it’d give the media a break from covering the illegitmate children of porn stars and forceful thursts of Senegalese falsetto vocalists.
