Autorentext

Cameron's extensive experience in wilderness and cross-cultural adventures include mountaineering in the American West and the Peruvian Andes as well as river-running in the extended Colorado river basin. Cross country ski adventures were also a large part of his earlier life style during his twenties. But the adventures were musical, spiritual and linguistic as well as physical. From the Mississippi River Blues Beginnings I grew up in as a 14-year-old electric guitar-playing band member in St Louis, Missouri, where I had the pleasure of hanging out at the Lindy Ballroom and Roller Skating Rink where Ike and Tina Turner were playing... Soaked in the Chuck Berry ecstasy of alcoholic rural partytimes... To the Tear-Soaked musical high-altitude musical majesties of the Peruvian Andes... To the Time-stopping hesitation Black Hole musical mysteries of Athens, Greece... To the Divine Feminine Eternal Worship Dance in the Telepathically Jeweled Musical Venues of Cairo, Amman and Damascus... To 70,000 miles of Touring the Amalgam Mix of the Cauldron called the USA... I have had the amazing wild ride of a lifetime spent playing for people to dance... I use the Oud, the Fretless Turkish Banjo, the Egyptian Flutes, my Voice... I weave the magic and the magic weaves me... Come Sing and Dance and Play with me... Love Love Love... Cameron Cameron's musical and linguistic careers recently led him to stand in solidarity with the people of Iraq by sharing Iraqi love songs on the streets of Baghdad in 2003. His lifelong musical adventures with Latin American and Middle Eastern peoples have culminated in a series of recent concerts and multi-media presentations designed to promote peace. High points of these adventures included performing in the Cairo stadium before an audience of 60,000 Egyptians to help raise funds for a new Children's Cancer Hospital. Fascination with Peruvian Indian peoples encountered on mountaineering expeditions led Cameron to spend 8 years going to and from Andean villages back in the 1960's and 70's. He immediately discovered the value of learning to play their music with them as an easy aid to bonding in trust and friendship. Cameron graduated with BA in Anthropology and Linguistics, University of Colorado, Boulder, with an emphasis on the study of Quechua, the language of the Incas. Cameron also received a fellowship to attend a two-month intensive immersion program in the Inca language at Cornell University. Cameron also received a scholarship to work on a Doctoral program in Linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley. He continued to study the Inca language and began studies of the Tibetan language. The warmth of his musically-oriented "extended family" in Peru served to draw him away from an academic career toward a performing musical career. It was there in Peru that he began to realize the value of being a musician as well as a linguist. In 1973 Cameron lived in Greece with the Papanastassiou family and studied Greek language and Greek music. Returning to Boulder, Colorado, Cameron performed Greek music and began the study of Arabic music with various local bands: "The Silk Route," "The Boulder Bouzouki Band," "Solspice," and "Sherefe."



Klappentext

Cameron Powers has immersed himself in the Arab world, the Greek world and the Inca world. He has derived some fascinating knowledge about different ways of cultural being as a result. Cameron and Kristina Sophia, who has journeyed through the Arab world with him, pursued their own brand of diplomacy as "Musical Ambassadors" and were on the streets of Baghdad singing popular Iraqi music with Iraqi citizens during the spring of 2003. They have made eight trips to other Arab-world nations as well between 2002 and 2010 carrying their "Musical Missions of Peace" through Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt. Cameron and Kristina were invited to perform for an audience of 60,000 Egyptians in the Cairo stadium in October of 2003 to help raise money for an Egyptian Children's Cancer Hospital. Subsequently traveling through Syria, they sang on the streets and in the homes of Palestinian refugees in a large camp near Damascus. The photo on the front cover shows some of these Palestinian children who spontaneously joined in the singing. Back in America during parts of 2003 - 2016 they drove more than 100,000 miles to bring their uplifting musical and multi-media presentation, "Singing in Baghdad," and other presentations to thousands of American citizens in more than half of the states in the union. Recently returned from more musical adventures in the Arab world, Cameron has written this "People's Guide to Basic Decency" to help others who desire to go through the personal process of spiritual soul growth which accompanies experiencing oneself as a truly global citizen. Promoting a natural state of compassion which can easily exist between people in the absence of fear, author and musician Cameron Powers presents a glimpse into a very modern world with extensive internet connections but which simultaneously drinks from the ancient wisdom of the Dervish-populated realms of the Middle East.
