Mixing Magic

Ridha can weave two or more styles, languages or feeling together in a song like nobody I have ever seen. That is how he came up with the nickname “Mix Master.” The man truly is a musical genius. We often marvel at his lovely voice and rightfully so. But when you understand the depth of knowledge he has a performer and more importantly a student of music, you really begin to understand the depth of this man’s talent. As an example, he takes a 100 year old Arabic song “Bakhta” and mixes it with a Pink Floyd song…and it not only works..it’s brilliant. How does he think of these things? Tonight was just another amazing demonstration of this man’s talent as he entertained before an appreciative crowd in Second Life. Wow. Wow says it all.

Wearing Blue for Peace

Peace and Love was the theme of tonight’s concert in Hiriam and to show their support fans came out in blue (the color of peace.) It was an amazing show as Ridha weaved songs like “Imagine”, “Wonderful World” and “Let It Be” into other great world and popular tunes. There is always a wonderful energy during these shows as people from different walks of life, different countries and different religions come together to celebrate through Ridha’s big gift of music. Wouldn’t it be a wonderful world if this was as easy to accomplish out in the non-cyber world. Peace and Love, Peace and Love.

23 Skidoo!

Ridha played at Manhattan’s Night Club in SL this evening and it was a lovely setting for the sweet sounds of Ridha. The club is a recreation of a 1920’s Jazz Club and was full of people in period costumes enjoying the sweet sounds that Ridha had to give. The music was as beautiful as the setting and the night. It was a great mix of music. Ridha weaved a wonderful tapestry of music with quite a lot of beautiful French songs highlighted. It was the “bees knees.”

And we do mean on fire! Ridha played before a packed house in Roseland and played and played and played. 1 hour and 20 minutes the Mix Master weaved song after song before finally taking a break for a drink of water. It was one of the most amazing and higher energy performances I have ever seen. His avatar literally combusted from the energy...luckily Mr. Cooljoke was not harmed and finished the concert. However, there were reports of some fans standing in the first few rows being a little tanner from the experience. WOW! What a night! What a Ridha!

A Musical Cocktail in Horan

It was a "Musical Cocktail" by Ridha in Horan Wednesday evening as he quenched the thirst of his fans. Like a sip of intoxicating beverage, Ridha had us light headed as we listen to his sweet crooning. Ridha is 100 PROOF...of that we have no doubt. Keep us inebriated with your music Ridha, you are amazing!

Is He On Another Planet?

There was an old man,
That loved his brew,
He had so many ladies,
He didn't know what to do.

So he sang them all music,
And sent them to bed,
With visions of Ridha,
Dancing in their heads!

The afterglow parties are always so much fun. Hang around after the concert and see what surprises happen. In Hiriam, an old man suddenly appreared and played music as the lovely ladies danced until dawn.

P.S. Neffy made me do it...I swear!

Ridha is Out Of This World

They came from a different part of the universe to hear him sing. 5 aliens with the sole purpose of bringing Ridha back to their mother planet and kidnap him for the pleasure of their world.

OK I jest. But, a few ladies dared to become green skinned aliens and listen to their favorite singer perform to a packed house in Hiriam Sunday evening. It was an amazingly fun time. Ridha had fun with the aliens and managed to weave the “greenie” theme in wherever he could. He pleased his audience with many wonderful songs and left them wanting for more. As always, he was out of this world!

According to the American Dairy Council:
Butter melts between 82.4°F and 96.8°F. To ensure that butter will melt and not burn, heat at low temperature and watch it closely.

Tonight, Ridha proved that he is better than any open flame when it comes to melting butter. His sweet tones caressed the ears of all at the Roseland Ballroom and much like a pat of butter…the entire room of guests melted at the gentle crooning of this amazing singer. He started off slow with some love songs from around the world..then picked it up with a disco mix in the middle, switched gears again and had all singing along to “Let It Be” and ended with a signature blue’s song. Wow.

We suggested you keep your butter away from the speakers when Ridha does his thing!

Tonight the Rains Came

It was like a cool rain on a warm summer day..one of those rain’s the plants need so badly and after it’s over everything seems so fresh and refreshed and alive. That is what tonight’s concert was. A refreshing rain.

After a long absence from Second Life (Ok, Ok it was only a few days but it SEEMED like a long time) Ridha came back and rocked Horan tonight to an appreciative crowd. He pulled out a surprising “Black Magic Woman” that he mixed with Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” and it was a crowd pleaser. So many highlights it’s hard to pick one. Watching everyone sing “type” “Aisha” was surely fun. The combination of “Let It Be” and “Imagine” were beautiful too but I guess for me it was just having him back in Second Life singing. It has rained again and the freshness of the moment lives on in our memories.

Happy Mommy's Day

In the United States, today is the day we celebrate our Mom's. I thought perhaps it would be wonderful to share a little about the historical perspective of Mother's Day. May you or the women in your life have a special day and lets hope we show them the love and kindness they deserve every day of the year on not just today.

Mother's Day was loosely inspired by the British day and was imported by social activist Julia Ward Howe after the American Civil War. However, it was intended as a call to unite women against war. In 1870, she wrote the Mother's Day Proclamation as a call for peace and disarmament. Howe failed in her attempt to get formal recognition of a Mother's Day for Peace. Her idea was influenced by Ann Jarvis, a young Appalachian homemaker who, starting in 1858, had attempted to improve sanitation through what she called Mothers' Work Days. She organized women throughout the Civil War to work for better sanitary conditions for both sides, and in 1868 she began work to reconcile Union and Confederate neighbors.

May we find a love as great as a Mother's love every day of our lives.

Another Brick in His Wall

I have been remiss to write about Wednesday's concert...my first life has me hopping. I wanted to blog about the great show in Horan. The SHOW STOPPER as all have to agree that were there was the surprise Pink Floyd song "The Wall." Being a teacher I'm never too sure about singing along to those lyrics but Ridha made it irresistible. “Hey, teacher…leave those kids alone. All in all you're just another brick in the wall.” For those of us that hang after the shows, this brick wall has extra meaning…join us sometime!

P.S. TY oldie for snapping the shot, you truly are a jewel in the Sheik’s box of treasures.

He kept going and going and going!

Ridha was like the Energizer Bunny in Hiriam tonight and didn’t take a break the first hour of the concert…he kept going and going and going. A disco mix that went on and on and on…and everyone loved it! He slowed it down just a bit toward the end, but we aren’t sure where this man gets his energy! Great concert, avatars will be rubbing their sour feet for a week from all the dancing!

Once in a Blue Moon

Once in a blue moon is a saying for something that is unique and rare. Ridha played at the Blue Passion Ballroom today to an appreciative crowd and all there knew they were witnessing something unique and rare. Ridha played for just an hour but in that small time he captured the hearts of all there. As the avatars gathered many knew they were witnessing all gathered to witness and understand the rare talent they were seeing. Ridha..once in a musical blue moon.

Pinch Me I'm Dreaming

It was kind of like a surreal dream. The location was breathtaking, a recreation of the La Scala Opera House in Milan. The audience was enthusiastic and dressed in their finest. Most importantly however, Ridha’s voice lifted up like an angel from heaven…the concert was truly a glorious thing to be a part of. One amusing note, at the venue it is assumed that avatars will remain in their seats and listen to the music. I can attest that most of us tried for a very long time to do this, but the pull of Ridha’s music was too much and we rose in unison and started dancing in the aisles. Sometimes, you have to break the rules…especially when you are part of such a magnificent dream!

Our Pot of Gold

Ridha played at the pub Fibber McGee’s in the world of Dublin this evening to a packed pub. He kept the crowd wanting for more as our favorite Tunisian Leprechaun sang an hour, keeping all moving on the dance floor. I am sure all in agreement felt like they had the luck of the Irish with them hearing such a wonderful concert.
