Music for Music

Sunday the world seemed just a little smaller as a Tunisian born man living in Italy reached his musical hands across the sea to help the organization “Bugles Across American” (BAA) raise funds to purchase more musical instruments. What a sparkling, magical evening. Fans and people who have never heard Ridha crowded in Lemania Indigo’s place. People from the organization BAA listened via a stream provided them. Allee, Lemania’s real life daughter was the inspiration for this fundraiser. Ridha dedicated the song “My Way” to her because of the strong young lady she is, never letting her blindness come in the way of what goals she is striving for. She commented to her Mom via Skype--HE ROCKS!.

When I attend concerts like this I forget all the hate in the world. I remember that really, most people are kind and care deeply about helping each other. I think if each of us carries this thought in our heart…we will all live in a happier world. An to the Tunisian who played such an amazing concert…you are the best! Keep your heart moving in the right direction….in case you haven’t noticed, your music already has made a difference in this world—and there is more to come.

JSP was Jumping

Ridha dazzled the crowd at JSP Island as a full house swooned to his song stylings. Nobody can put on a show like Ridha and he proved that once again. He had the crowd eating from the palm of his hand as he expertly moved from romantic music to disco time. Great show again!

PAHfest Motown meets Ridha

A few months ago I approached Ridha with the idea of doing a virtual concert for an event that Christopher Coppola (yes Francis Ford’s nephew and Nicolas Cage’s brother) was doing in Michigan. We decided bringing a virtual concert to a real world location as the entertainment was pretty darn cool and after talking to Christopher he agreed. That began what was a long journey that got us to the Wednesday’s concert in Detroit Life. The SIM was full of eager people from all over the world because rumor had it that Ridha had some original songs to share. The location in Michigan was also full as eager people awaited the start of the concert. Let me say this, no matter how much planning you do there are always technical glitches but we ironed them out and started a few minutes late. The Second Life crowd appreciated the concert and it was a treat to see them party.

Let me tell you a little about the real world side of things since most of you only experienced it in Second Life. As the eager concert goers waited, they dined on pizza and soft drinks. It was a mixed crowd; older people, younger people, black, white, techno geeks and virtual noobies. There was a buzz of anticipation in the air as everyone was enjoying their lunch with us. Then…Ridha sang. There was a hush over the room and all eyes moved toward the screen…then I heard a gasp as people began to understand just how amazing he is. WOW..I wish you could have all experienced it like I did. We had a blast. SisterPAH Twine is a real nun and she had a wonderful time meeting you all. I have included some pictures for you to enjoy.

Ridha, for those of us who are familiar with your work having the opportunity to hear your original pieces was a thrill. For me personally, knowing how hard you worked to make it happen made it an even bigger thrill. To share you with my real life was amazing. Someone phoned me today and said “Ridha is amazing and whatever we can do to advance his career I am on board.” Me too. You know what your friendship means to me. I am blessed to include you among my real life friends as well as my virtual ones. It has been a joy working with you and pushing you to compose those lovely songs rattling inside of your soul. We have just begun the journey.

Thank you so much for being part of this event. Thanks for everything Ri. You are a treasure.

Is OUR Star Out Tonight?

The Moon and the Sun shined no brighter than our beautiful star Ridha as he performed this evening in the Second Life sim of Donalbain. It was a lovely evening and it seemed once his star rose, he didn’t want to stop playing. Soo many highlights. A lot of lovely French songs, a disco mix and a blues set certainly were among the highlights. Great show! Great Ridha!

Alice Beach Party

Last night Ridha played in the SIM of Alice Beach and you needed a shoe horn to move on that dance floor. So many people enjoying the sweet sounds of Ridha. As always it so difficult to pick a highlight, just getting to hear him again was wonderful! ((Brushes the sand out from between my toes.))

Happy July 4th

Ridha celebrated with all his American friends at the Blue Passion Ballroom tonight for their July 4th holiday. He gave a wonderful performance this evening as he weaved the songs of the world for all to enjoy and dance to. As everyone danced in their red, white and blue best…Ridha made the night magical. Americans celebrate with party, firecrackers, parades and fun. Ridha sent us all the message of peace and love tonight…and isn’t that the universal message.
