Royalty in Jordan
At the start of the 19th century, Jordan belonged to the Ottoman Empire . For a brief time after World War I, it was part of the kingdom of Syria. Then it fell under the rule of Great Britain and became Transjordan, with Abdullah bin Al-Hussein as its emir. In 1946 the country gained its independence and became the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, with Abdullah as its first king. In 1951 Abdullah was assassinated by a Palestinian who resented him for political reasons. The assassin also fired at the king's grandson Hussein, but the bullet bounced off a medal Hussein was wearing over his heart. After Abdullah's death, Hussein's father Talal ascended the throne. He was soon declared unfit to rule because of mental incompetence, and in 1952 the 16-year-old Hussein was proclaimed king of Jordan. A respected voice for peace in the Middle East, King Hussein ruled until 1999, when he died and was succeeded by his eldest son, King Abdullah II.

Company History
Arabesque Dance Company has emerged as Canada's leading Middle Eastern dance ensemble, promoting an art form that is often misunderstood, and yet, has persevered through two thousand years of persecution. The company has performed across Canada, the United States and the Middle East, often performing for royalty and heads of state, winning over audiences and gaining critical acclaim throughout its travels. Originally called Rakisaat Arabesque, the company staged its first performance at the Robert Gill Theatre in Toronto, in November of 1988, showcasing talent emerging from Yasmina Ramzy's dance school, Arabesque Academy. Staging Middle Eastern dance, choreographed for large groups, in a theatre setting had never before been done in Toronto. Heading the company of some 21 dancers and seven musicians is Artistic Director Yasmina Ramzy, widely regarded as a highly innovative choreographer who constantly strives to present original works. A characteristic of Arabesque Dance Company is the positioning on-stage of the musicians who play such ancient instruments as the 78-string qanoon (harp), the oude (lute), as well as rababa (one-stringed violin), and dumbek (Middle Eastern drum). Leading them is Musical Director Dr. George Sawa, who heads the Centre for Studies in Middle Eastern Music, also based in Toronto.

  • 10. FIRM - Excerpted From John Cones' Book: Motion Picture Biographies
    was the middle east with 9 films biographies of those before the Renaissance are rare indeed (4 percent), and limited to charismatic biblical figures or Egyptian or Greek royalty."
    Excerpt from Motion Picture Biographies by John W. Cones Hollywood Biopics - Concluding Observations Analysis of this body of films, the Hollywood biopics, considers the geographic setting for such films, the occupations portrayed, time and sex biases, ideology, historical accuracy and the race, culture and ethnicity of the biopic subjects. In some instances, the conclusions of the author of the earlier work in this area (George Custin's Bio/Pics) are compared with those of the more contemporary study. In other instances, this later study places an emphasis on different issues which are critical in gaining an understanding of the Hollywood-based U.S. film industry. GeographyAs Custen points out, "[i]n their projection of biography onto a world map, Hollywood created a distorted view of accomplishment that sustained an image of history that . . . made it appear that entire domains of achievement had been invented by Americans . . . " Custen's study of biopics, which only surveyed the genre through the middle of the century, reveals that "[t]wo-thirds of all biopics are either about Americans or set in America . . . " and "[a]fter the United States, Europe appears to be the center of the biographical universe, with 22 percent of films set there." As Custen pointed out for his study, if " . . . the American and European totals (are combined) . . . 89 percent of all famous people are either American or European . . . Asia and Africa account for only 3 percent of all biopics (in Custen's study) . . . "

    Yasmina Ramzy
    Curriculum Vitae Choreography
    Yasmina Ramzy has been performing, teaching and choreographing Middle Eastern dance since 1981. She has toured extensively throughout Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Greece, England, Mexico, the United States and Canada, often performing for royalty and heads of state. She began her training at the National Ballet School of Canada, focusing her efforts on ballet, classical guitar, ancient Egyptian studies and Tibetan Buddhism. Upon being introduced to Middle Eastern dance and music, she became enchanted by the beauty of the movement and music, and began immediately to explore her newfound passion. Middle Eastern dance soon began to take up most of Yasmina's time, and when a Lebanese singer invited her to the Middle East as his support act, she readily accepted. With her mother as chaperone, Yasmina explored the land by which she was fascinated. She throughly absorbed the music and culture, studying with leading artists such as Mohamed Khalil, director of the National Folklore Troupe of Egypt, and Ida Nour. Upon returning home, she engaged her first students and founded

    This biography is from AllAboutJazz , original location: Dave Brubeck A milestone in Brubeck's career was his appearance in 1959 with the New York Philharmonic conducted by Leonard Bernstein. After three performances, they recorded Dialogues for Jazz Combo and Orchestra, a piece composed by Dave's brother, Howard. A pioneer in combining jazz with symphony orchestras, Brubeck continued to appear as composer-performer in concerts of his choral compositions and as soloist with orchestras. New Wine, a concert with the Montreal Jazz Festival Orchestra, was recorded and released by MusicMasters. The London Symphony Orchestra honored his fifty-plus years as a jazz performer with an all-Brubeck program performed by Stephane Grappelli, four Brubeck sons, and the Dave Brubeck Quartet. When Pope John Paul II visited the United States in 1987, Brubeck composed special music and participated in its performance at the Papal Mass in Candlestick Park, San Francisco. In his long career, Dave Brubeck has performed for British royalty, a pope, kings, presidents and heads of state. The Dave Brubeck Quartet toured the U. S., Europe, Canada and Japan with the Murray Louis Dance Co., a unique collaboration of America's indigenous art forms jazz and modern dance. World tours, including several for the State Department in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, have made jazzman Dave Brubeck one of America's foremost good-will ambassadors. The Quartet's repertoire has been influenced by the ethnic music they have heard on their travels.
