Another video for Indigenous Dance Academy

(Image and Videos: Redbull Amaphiko)Indigenous Dance Academy has had a wonderful year, and as it draws to a close, the Tembisa crew is taking the world by storm, one video at a time.In the latest move, dancer and academy founder Jarrel Mathebula made a cameo appearance in the video for the single Gratitude, by 21-year-old British rapper Little Simz.And he brought along skater Rayne Moses for the ride. Moses’ Nebula Skate is nurturing a whole new generation of black skaters – and smart ones too: his skaters have to complete their homework before they can get on their boards.Indigenous Dance Academy offers young people an opportunity to literally dance their way out of poverty. The crew have appeared in music videos and advertisements, including the acclaimed video for Sons of Kemet’s In the Castle of My Skin.Simz spoke to Redbull Amaphiko about her show in Khayelitsha, in Cape Town; Mathebula and Moses are Redbull Amaphiko social innovators.“It was sick,” Simz said. “It was crazy to see how many people came out to see me… Where I performed was quite far out so people made a journey to see me, which was cool.“Even though I rap fast, luckily they could all understand me. There was a local band that I watched for a while, jazz-influenced and rhythmic. The people were fly. It was cool to see how my music had migrated across the planet.”SHOOTING THE VIDEOShot in Khayelitsha, the video gave Simz an opportunity to soak up the atmosphere and learn more about South Africa’s second largest township.“I haven’t really digested it,” she said. “I’m still feeling high from it. Shooting a video out there was incredible; there was so much for me to take in, and I’m excited about it. I learned a lot from the DOP [director of photography] who was a local guy who broke down to me what was going on in Cape Town, in terms of politics and culture and that was cool.“The shooting was good. We captured a lot of exciting people.”She was aware of township culture, but seeing how people were really living “was crazy… It opened my eyes a lot. I was aware of it from being younger, but I’d never seen them first hand. My family are from Lagos, Nigeria, so the culture was different to what I’d seen before.”On giving opportunities to a local project – specifically Indigenous Dance Academy and Nebula Skate – Simz said: “I believe in presenting opportunities and shedding light. Why not? There was a natural link to what I was doing. I knew I wanted dancers in the video and it just fell into place naturally. Jarrel and those guys were really good.”TAKING ON THE WORLDMathebula and Moses were both stoked to be in the video. “I was super amped when I heard the track,” Moses said. “I could really relate to it and being in the video means we can share our story and inspire.”Mathebula appreciated the fact that it showed to the youth that everything was possible.“The experience was out of this world and humbling, having been a follower of Little Simz’ music,” he said. “I really enjoyed myself, showcasing my talent to the rest of the world.“This is a great way to show the underprivileged youth from my community that you can achieve anything by believing in your dreams and working on sharpening your craft. There is a lot of negative influences that happen in South African townships and dance is our way of escaping the clutches of drugs and alcohol abuse, while growing as professional street dancers.”last_img read more

From wet to too dry Between the Rows

Posted on by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We could use some rain. The northern part of the county got a pretty good soaking but you can seeScott Metzger, Pickaway Co.some beans getting dry down here on some of the gravel ground. You can see it in the double-crop beans here too. We’ve had three or four tenths so far this month. They are calling for some rain Wednesday or Thursday I believe.You couldn’t have had an irrigation pivot in July and gotten better rains than we had. The beans are all unusually tall this year. We are starting to see a little bit of frogeye showing up in them but we are passed the time to spray. At this point you’ve got what you’ve got. I have never been a fan of tall beans. It seems like they spend more time growing than putting on pods. Until we get in them we won’t know how they will do. Tall beans in our black ground are not unusual but tall beans in our lighter ground — that’s when you get nervous.The double-crop beans look pretty good and they are coming along. Everything is clean. We’ve had some fields with a good bit of Japanese beetle feeding and some with hardly any at all. I don’t know the reason behind that.We’ve seen a little brown spot but for the most part things are clean. We even have a couple varieties that are more susceptible to frogeye than others and they are actually pretty clean.We only sprayed one field of beans for test strips. We did end up spraying all of the corn minus one field where we had sweet corn around the edges. We mostly had gray leaf spot in our corn. We had one field that is corn after corn and we had northern corn leaf blight in that one and found some rust too. Overall I think the corn is looking pretty good and we should have pretty good corn yields.For the rest of this weeks reports, click here.last_img read more
