Siboney

Ciboney, also spelled Siboney are Indian people of the Greater Antilles in the Caribbean Sea.

Within a century after European contact (Christopher Columbus landed in 1492), the Ciboney culture was largely extinct, although self-identifying descendants of the Ciboney survived.

What links Tolstoy, Beethoven, a virtuoso violinist and a young, married Czech woman? The inspiration for the elderly Janacek's string quartets. Beethoven's heroic sonata for violin and piano, Tolstoy's dark and disturbing novella, and Leos Janacek's intensely descriptive and often frenetic first string quartet are all linked by the same name: the Kreutzer Sonata. Rodolphe Kreutzer, a French violin virtuoso who ignored Beethoven's...

God Bless the Child

On December 30, 1938, Billie Holiday began singing at Barney Josephson’s Cafe Society nightclub at a salary of $75 a week, seven-days-a-week. The gig had been arranged by impresario John Hammond, who, although not Holiday’s manager per se, had been instrumental in many strategic career moves for her.
