Supercat

July 29, 2006

Washington DC

Last week I mention I was looking forward to seeing Reggae Legend Supercat, who performed here in DC. Well, I must say this show was very good.  Of course, I was very disappointed that the show started late (around 2:00 am), but once it began it was really good.  The show took place at Zanzibar-on-the waterfront, which I have always said is a great location for a reggae show. 
When the show finally started at 2:00 Stef Luva from WKYS (radio host) took the stage and welcomed everyone.  At that point you could see the excitement building from the crowd, which by the way was not as large as I thought it would have been, considering the amount of crossover hits SuperCat has had, and the fact that he hadn't been to DC in many years.  Anyway, Stef said "there is someone here who could introduce the show a lot better than I could" and proceeded to introduce Giselle (The Wasse One) from Miami who has been very popular for a few years now.  I believe she is on the radio in Miami and is from Trinidad, and is regularly here hosting Klimaxx Entertainment's "Fresh Fete Fridays" (Every 1st Fridays, which happens to be taking place tonight.)   Giselle did a great job creating lots of "hype" and excitement.  It's actually a real treat to hear a new voice, especially coming from someone who is as sexy as she is.  The band took the stage and the room came alive.  They placed a few rhythms to make sure the sound was perfect, and it certainly was "big up Ritchie Ritchardson and your crew for a good job on that."  The first to take the stage was Junior Demus, who was a big dancehall artist in the late 80's, and he was very entertaining, he sang several of his hits, which had the place really moving.  Lots of memories came to mind hearing him perform his songs.  At this point it was time for the main event, so SuperCat took the stage, and all you could hear was a roar from the crowd.  Super cat looking as "dapper" as ever, moved gracefully as he always does from hit to hit, in unison with the band (he always works well with his band.)  About an hour into his performance, I think everyone in the place was fulfilled, but to our surprise Supercat announced that Shabba Ranks was in the house and invited him on stage.  When Shabba took the stage the room erupted, and it felt like an earthquake had just hit Zanzibar.  Supercat and Shabba went through a few songs, and Shabba performed a few of his own hits, which sent the crowd wild.  Junior Demus returned to the stage and they all did the famous "Cabin Stabbin"  together (which was a big hit for Supercat and Junior Demus in the 80's).  What a great show this was, and well worth the money.  Actually, this was one of the best shows I have seen in Washington in a long while.  Big Up to the promoters Iland Promotions and to Darren Green for having the show at Zanzibar.

The Bollywood Fashion Awards – A Glittering Night to Remember

Press Release

July 30th 2006

The Bollywood Fashion Awards – A Glittering Night to Remember

The Bollywood Fashion Awards fulfilled all expectations and more at the Roseland Ballroom in the heart of New York City on July 29th 2006. 

Supermodel Iman, designer to the stars Rachel Roy, Music Mogul Damon Dash, Theater Legend Ben Vereen,Mrs Altovise Sammy Davis Jr all participated in the function’s festivities, making it truly the most glamorous South Asian event. 

Iman, the ethereal Somalian beauty, presented Rachel Roy with the award for “Outstanding Contribution to American Fashion” for her elegant and demure couture which is a celebrity-favorite in Hollywood .  The ravishing designer thanked her husband, Damon Dash, and daughter Ava, both of whom greeted the audience, for their hands in her success. 

Another top honor was given to theater legend Ben Vereen who was felicitated with the specially instituted “Sammy Davis Jr. Award” for effortlessly combining style and talent, just as the late Sammy Davis Jr. did.  The late Sammy Davis Jr’s widow, Altovise, presented the award to Vereen; he keyed up audience-members by instructing them to boast:  "We've got a message for the world -- we are stylish!"  The thousands seated broke into loud applause when he spoke of his desire to go to Bollywood.

Rouge, the girl-band at the top of the charts in the U.K. and India , was honoured with the Award for “Most Stylish International Group.”  Later in the evening, they captivated the crowd with their gorgeous looks and mesmerizing renditions of their hit songs including “Don’t Be Shy.”

Other awards were bestowed upon Aryan Vaid (Model of the Year – Male), Nethra (Model of the Year – Female), Manish Malhotra (Designer of the Year – Film), Sabyasachi (Haute Couture) and Black (Most Stylish Film). 

As if the glamour and glitter of the collections were not enough, the roster of supermodels from India were a feast for the most jaded eye.

Bollywood designer Manish Malhotra’s trendy and contemporary line confirmed that Asian and Western fashions could produce a fusion which could be both spectacular and elegant. Sushma Patel’s line was a celebration of the modern Indian bride. Sabyasachi’s collection created a feast of line, fabric and form with styles and motifs from past and the present effortlessly woven into a symphonic whole, leaving no doubt that he is worthy of his invitation to showcase his collection at NY Fashion Week this fall.

Other performers included DJ Sanj, Sourabh Jain, Narayan and Amir Jamal.  Broadway’s Bombay Dreams’ lead, Manu Narayan, hosted the evening.

A warm glow of having seen something memorable and wonderful seemed to settle on the viewers as the evening drew to a close.  Kamal Dandona, who launched the Awards, has instituted an event that has become beacon for generations of designers drawing inspiration from both Indian and American traditions.
