a season of special coverage on al jazeera. i. hi of emmy. ok, welcome to the bonus edition of the stream is a show that brings you the candy conversations i half of the guess after the live broadcast. coming up, the tennessean. singer, songwriter, m. o moth luthey. but let's start with classical music. the 1st time since the metropolitan opera house was founded, a 138 years ago. it is staging a production when african american composer far shut up in my bones is the story of a young man's journey from hardship to success. it was co directed by camille brown . the libretto is by cassie lemons, and the music was composed by the celebrated jazz musician and composer terrence blanche out his tarts. i wanted this abra, everything that i write to. so natural and feel natural coming all to boys. so i
7:35 am
would read the libretto out loud, and i would read the brother out loud. i would hear the rhythms of that. i would hear it here and see that would start to inform me what the melody should be, what the piece would be. then i would just take it from there and then i would have these workshops with a certain person who's on this screen with me right now. and then they would tell me about how i want to kill their voice by arriving too many high knows well that and pass through that set and pleasant like to speak. leave me a little. ah, no, you're good. you're me. no, i love. i love it. here it is. my you knows there. yeah. oh no. compose a some i use like to in those and you say i got a thing, but you would have our it's at same rate but got to say something,
7:36 am
let's say something and 3. 0 is, is that, is that like, it tells you can tell us you can tell us this is our secret, this is the extra esteem, extra. and was, was there a sort of one 012 opera conventions that you looked at and then threw away or did you just know it? because i know that your dad loved oprah music. so it kind of seat in to you as your grandpa what, what part part of it was the fact that i had my my father loved and i heard a lot of oper going up at the, not a part of a was, you know, i just love to form myself. and the main thing is you want to tell a story. so when it comes time to tell a story, there's a certain kind of, of construction that you, you want to have to do just a normal beginning, middle, and the end. you know, and to karen's point, that also goes into how you want to write for the voices. because you want to make sure that those voices at pivotal moments have that registered or have those
7:37 am
melodies that could really allow them to blossom and really express themselves. and when karen did, the 1st production of fire should have been marble and she helped me a great deal in understanding just that in terms of like howling to save certain phrases for certain parts of the oper to make sure that there can be a crime that's in the piece. yeah. at michael, you do you know what for so, so, so while, when you look at new pers being written, one of the comments that we had on you cheap was the opera shouldn't be an old awful if you continue to develop, sometimes we get stuck in the our art form. what are the trends that you're seeing right now? what gives you how, what are you thinking about? oh, well, couple things, cuz i think it is an opera does rely on the can that rama it roll eyes. the industry just relies on the certain shows certain composers
7:38 am
and that's part of it. for me, i actually think and maybe you know my bias as a director for, for is that i think. what's also interesting to me is when we're re imagining the classics and re imagining the canon and re imagining. how can we tell those stories in a new and exciting way in a way that, that is palatable to people. we want to see the shows. and then i'm also really excited people like terence and people who are actually like writing in a way that sort of adding to the story, telling us that it's not. we're not, you know, going into ad placed that's completely different. but we're actually widening the table. we're letting more voices at the table. we're not getting rid of puccini in order to get to add turns blanchard, but we're actually adding turns planter to the story tongue that we get to tell me how, what are you, franklin?
7:39 am
i'm thinking 2 things and i love harrison. i know he was the court, me a saying this. i wish there was more discussion around casey lemons and camille as well because they may history too. and here is noses that i'm super, super, super supportive of women in app are particularly diversity behind the stage, you know, gender and race and inclusive. and i wish that we, we saw more black women outside of just being singers. and, but it would actually creators and the way we see in other art forms, we see a literature the way we see in our dance, you know, i, it also makes us believe that we have, we have 2nd careers outside of the singing. you know, so i wish, and i'm not here as a, as many, many women in his life, you know, and i know, you know, you know, i wish i wish man and, and to that. but i know you means them like that are running my life and how
7:40 am
a category it was a is as it should be. tyrants obviously, no, but to her point she is exactly right. one of the things that i've been screaming about is how much of a genius, camille brown is i've been saying and over and over again. you know, chasing lemons has also been my sister for a number of years. we've worked together and there, there would be no fire should have been my boss if it wasn't for how beautiful a brutal she took that story, that most people couldn't see an opera and she created something extremely beautiful. she also created 2 characters, a loneliness and destiny. oh no. and they manifest themselves into a 3rd character grutter. you know, so it goes without saying that their contributions are huge, you know, and to them and to the development of this production. and we need to celebrate them just like we need to celebrate anybody else who's been a part of this production. the young kids that have been a potters production who are amazing singers,
7:41 am
the chorus tell people all the time. one of the things that's been blowing me away about this thing is that you don't know what it feels like to walk into a room or 40 people and be the only person that can sing it. ha, ha. yeah, i, i, he, i do know that feeling that map was got that when you will, the composer that's again, your musician. you, you have all the skills wonderful. to be surrounded by that talent just just from watching the clips. the videos from listening to you talking about it. i really need to see this. all right. now i may not be able to see it at metropolitan, but i know is gonna come to atlanta is gonna come to see, see, this opera is going to go run and run and run, run and run. how exciting will hold on is going to be, simon also is going to be some will go on october 23rd and $7.70 countries around the world terrace. blanchard, michael mohammed and karen sat,
7:42 am
bringing that passion for opera to the stream. fire shot up in my bones will be simile costs in cinemas, around the well this month. go to met upright dot org for details. and now to some disturbing video filmed on the cray sharp bosnia border in europe, there are countries that are so determined to keep out asylum seekers that they beat harass, and chased them away from their borders. these push backs are legal and brutal, but some viewers who are watching the stream on youtube this week suggested that european countries can't save everybody and no visa equals no entry. i shared these sentiments with the guests and i post. so discussion. we're nothing enough that these people don't have these at the begin not a visa because they ashland seekers or by definition there do not have the legal standard. i think that may be a point that, that we should emphasize if we want to talk about floor, you know,
7:43 am
i mean the how people enter counter doesn't matter whenever, when they seek eyes, i don't, you know, but frankly, to look at the broader feature migrations as always the christy, the start of mankind, he's a mankind, he's made a migration. so you know, we have not seen as an invasion as we are seeing. i mean, something that has always existed and people always have fled to conflict and always deal. and we should rather try to be proactive anti, to manage these, these phenomena i've had, i've been trying to contact them as it is happening now. and call me i think what, what sticks with me are in it's in the last 3 years is also a lot of it is happening increase on both now. and these countries are they had to watch is to 27 years ago. and many of the people that you meet there,
7:44 am
like the locals say like, like we understand the refugees and the asylum seekers because we were in the same and in the same role just it really a short while ago. so also not forgetting that this is something, as muslims said, that this has always been with us, that people need to flee from somewhere because their homes are destroyed. and yeah, like that for sure. you don't have a visa if your house is destroyed or if you can't go back where you have your draw with your documents. like how should you have a visa? and if you, if you leave with your children on your arms, just out of your country like that, you need to go somewhere and just ask for protection. and people should really not forget that this is something that has always been happening to certain mom to certain groups of people. maxima, i feel like he, wayne countries in europe are dealing with asylum seekers. has got more to do with
7:45 am
politics than empathy. because it wasn't that many decades ago when most european countries were refugees, most europeans were refugees because of the 2nd world war this class not only multiple, wherever it is, because over a 2nd law or 2 was still at work. but those are many, are economists microns. i mean, the, the city of south and europe is made of economic migration. you know, and now did the stands of change in probably things improve the european union. now people tend to quickly to forget how, what their grandfather state, i mean, and let's be clear. i mean, you know, all of them are probably with these are the permits. probably exactly the same way, like these people that are doing to me if they're a political solution. i mean, do you think, i mean latisha's making the problem?
7:46 am
i think may be 2 points on that. the 1st one is remembering that the vast majority of refugee leave in low and middle income countries and compare it to you know, who lives in europe and europe, easily receiving very small share of, of this refugee. so that's may be a 1st point as for whether we can find a political solution to the situation. i mean i, i think this is yet to be seen. the issue of migration in iceland has become so sensitive and seems to $15.00 to $16.00. i would say the situation is getting worse after every crisis of perceived crisis of like that really there is this perception that we can not manage your rivals. and this is making really difficult to find a solution at you level for, you know, a common armnaya manage solution to and hosting this people. i mean, we've had that old discussion on silicon already and, and we're seeing like every time there is this list deadlocks at between,
7:47 am
between you and the states. and so either i'm not sure they, there's a solution in sites. i. susie's problem, what is your, is like at operational levels. this is where things can change to see where, you know, independent human right monitoring mechanism can be set up. and also this is where, you know, al emergency can be more active to make sure that when assume seeker get to the country they, you know, they are adequate reception mechanism. they iceland claim are being processed in due time. and so that prop people have access to, to fair process when they get to europe, nicole v. so up close the violence against asylum seekers. where do you think that comes from? because it wasn't just a few bad apples as some of the governments, the 13th was i just missed a few of them. it's systematic. it's organized, a fun gate. i feel like that's beyond prejudice.
7:48 am
now. no, and it's also even orchestrated. so i think that, i mean, where does this come from? it's, it's for me, it's for us still difficult to say if there's even an order to use, to use to su islands. what we know that the while instead we filmed this to sled, say medium violence or it sounds already so cynical, but there have been cases of sexual harassment of like we'll torture or elements of torture. and so we are pretty sure, and especially in how wide spreads this is practices are that, that there are commands and that there are special groups that are known for doing a very good job at beating people up because it all is about the motivation. so what they're trying to do is to, to give all they can, that they don't dare to come back. you can watch the full episode about the illegal
7:49 am
takes being used on asylum seekers and refugees in europe at stream dot out is era . dot com. ok, full confession here. when i prepare for election shows, i do a lot of reading and then i just cross my fingers that the guess we book are really good at explaining domestic issues to an international audience, to soft a racks. october election, the stream brought together a panel that did a brilliant job of unpacking a rocking politics. so any luck, they're not, we don't have just 2 parties like there is in the united states or there isn't. in britain, britain for example. we have several parties. the voting process also is different on how they work for parliament members. and it in different than how it's a direct vote for the president. and also because we have a prime minister, we don't have a president, that's another difference. and then we have the local governments also with that, that's that also with that also is very different. over the past 15 years, a lot of the both both has been identity based. we do see that happening in the
7:50 am
united states today. however, in iraq, it took some times of violent, it was very violent. we see that also sort of shifting. so unless the international audience understands that they would not really see how significant these elections have been. when newcomers actually broke that chain of, of the dominance of the mainstream political parties and 2 very important, very sacred provinces in south iraq. and also the importance of the islamic party kind of being defeated with instantly politicians as any politics. that's all very, very important. that would, that's a different that i would focus on. all right. i knew i expected to have here because you are a politician. you've experienced iraq politics. how would you describe it from the inside? no repeating was russia mansion, but from an economic perspective in the air state patronage very much controls the economy. so everything here and iraq is the state on state manager,
7:51 am
state controls are which are very much it limits the possibility and the opportunities for private sector to flourish. m m m. ringback l i care, for example the, the, the, the government is the primary operator of everything. what whereas in a free market economy is when we could see the government's regulator, a policy maker, and a tax collector, anything butter and operators, or we don't like, for example, the united states produces more oil than iraq and saudi arabia put together. but they don't have a national oil company where in iraq, if we want to talk about, for example, privatization and introducing the market economy and so on. this is a, a big red line that we need to explain to the traditional at mindset. that's it very much controlling everything. well, if a young person said to you, i want to be a politician and that were in iraq. what would you honestly tell them?
7:52 am
i would honestly advise them to read more about politics and democracies. that's basically didn't develop democracy across the world before suggesting anything. i still remember during the days of the protest that some young people approached me and saying that we would like to produce similar to the french revolution. so i told them, did you read anything about the history of the french illusion? democracy didn't come in the day after that was a dictatorship and bloodshed and so on as it was going to be a journey of 20250 or so really need to think and a different way and much smart have them to pass. so i would advise them to read about what's happening across the world before improvising any solution from no come mindset. the big political party,
7:53 am
they are on their very organized and disciplined in the way they continue to have influence and power. i also know just as a citizen and being based here very much about religion and try how influence on, on politics. and you can ask any, any citizen, any person, and young people here, there's a lot of influence coming from regional countries. and sometimes we feel like we are ruled by a neighboring country. so i think that or the young people, we always feel that you need to belong to a certain political party or institution or group to be able to thrive politically . so, but the young generation are bringing a lot of change. i see there's also back in a day as
7:54 am
a courtesy woman. i used to have so much fear of anything coming out of the credit region because the i'm still reminded of a time of how i used to flee from, from the war that i experienced. but the crisis that happened now, especially women, showed that they could really be capable and, and take home the crisis and brought a lot of women from all of the different provinces then city together. and we kind of found ways of to reconcile. and so we have new conversations, i have activist friends from back that from sole, from thin jog from money and do have, we meet more we gather, we do activities. so the whole conversation around influencing politics or change and policies and laws, especially those very close to my hard like finding ways to, to and gender based violence. the conversation is moving forward. it's shifting.
7:55 am
i feel like the young people are just bringing it towards a new way, a new generation and you wrote and so there is definitely so much hope for less complicated politics. but the way it goes for people like me, it's still very complicated and we still do our best to understand that and we can't, but there are social media and then each other. thank goodness for social media. finally, one of the streams most memorable music gas return for a chat via instagram his m will miss lucy, that she needs in singer and songwriter, talking about her latest project. as a woman who is supposedly a feminist, i haven't really cooked her. so much of that in my own
7:56 am
kitchen i, i just had this realization that i wasn't really offering so much space for other female voices. and that as female voice it always try to take more space throughout my career. i felt that it was time for me to give back and to also receives but from a different source. because throughout the many years i was performing in creating and producing albums, i most exclusively worked with, with man, with man. and i decided that it was time for me to explore female creativity and female sisterhood. and i just started reaching out to many female producers. and also i had the big motivation that everybody kept telling me that it was impossible. they was just very hard that most of the people i was asking didn't
7:57 am
know any female producers. so i decided to that's, that's really depressing. if you are in the music business, people you are asking didn't know female, but jesus. yes, yes. and i even asked, i am talking about people. yeah. in the music business about people, you know, on the scene people who are radio programmers and i'm, i'm sure they're coming from a, from a good place. they're not just trying to sabotage anybody. but that's, that's where we are, because even myself, before anybody else, i just, any, any time i had the idea of reaching out to somebody, i would always find a lot of the mil producers or musicians. and i mean, i love all the partners in all my collaborators and i still collaborate with them. but i just felt that i, i,
7:58 am
it was the time for me to start taking some action. and i got even more motivated after all the complications and applications get coming along the way because also a lot of female, we tend to not trust each other enough internet trust ourselves. as you know that it's people who have a voice and we can come to so much and we are currently going. ringback to publish even more together and he might sound like a cliche might sound like cute in cheesy, but it's, it's, it's not, it's not that simple. and i found myself really supportive in a way that i haven't felt that before. and i found myself creating, interacting in ways i haven't interacted and created before. i'm on my thing, you see on a spam live wrapping up ashley today. thanks for watching tv. ah,
7:59 am

8:00 am
you don't have any way to verify, identify who is telling the story their motivation. these are multi national corporations that are interested in profit, anticipate the consequences. the media was complicit in perpetuating this myth. i'm here to tell you that i think that many people died because of the lifting pace, deconstruct the media on altus era. ah, he knows in afghanistan as the death toll from friday's bomb attack rises to $65.00, the taliban pledge is to step up the security at sheer mosques. ah, hello, money inside. this is out there, lie from doha. also coming up. hospital struggle to treat
