traditional music and even sons and other musical compositions created just for them. This Chinelo tradition was copied and modified by many other towns in Morelos, starting with Tepoztlán, which has its own colors and style of hat. There are also Chinelo dancers in the southern boroughs of Milpa Alta and Xochimilco in nearby Mexico City. However, the dance is now a symbol of the state of Morelos.

of the state's traditional music is associated with corridos. The corrido is sung and played in many parts of Mexico. Those performed in Morelos belong to the "suriano" (southern) type, which can be complicated but, unlike the northern version, is not meant for dancing. The lyrics of this type of corrido generally haveeight syllables per line forming stanzas of five verses each. This type of corrido dates back before the Mexican Revolution, but the tradition has waned. One band noted

scene during the 1970s, with a part of bands incorporating elements of traditional music into their sound. At this period, bands like YU grupa and Smak achieved large mainstream popularity and massive album sales. The end of the 1970s featured the appearance of the prominent hard rock band Riblja Čorba, and the emergence of the closely associated punk rock (Punk in Yugoslavia) and New Wave scene (New Wave music in Yugoslavia)s. Pekinška Patka was the first Serbian punk rock band to release an album, in 1980. The New Wave bands Šarlo Akrobata, Električni Orgazam and Idoli, which appeared on the influential compilation album ''Paket aranžman'' in 1980, were followed by a large number of New Wave acts. Around 1982, with the rising tensions in Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo, New Wave scene declined. During the 1980s, pop rock acts, such as Đorđe Balašević and Bajaga i Instruktori, dominated the mainstream scene, but various other rock genres also emerged, and the alternative rock scene, with the acts such as Ekatarina Velika, Disciplina Kičme, and Rambo Amadeus, started to develop and gain mainstream popularity. Mid 1980s At the beginning of 1983 Bijelo dugme recorded a children's music album ''A milicija trenira strogoću! (i druge pjesme za djecu)'' (''And Police Trains Strictness! (and Other Songs for Children)''). The lyrics for the album were written by Duško Trifunović. It was initially planned Seid Memić Vajta (Seid Memić) to sing the vocals, but eventually, vocals were recorded by the eleven year old Ratimir Boršić Rača (Ratimir Boršić), and the album was released under Ratimir Boršić Rača & Bijelo dugme moniker. In February 1983 the band released the album ''Uspavanka za Radmilu M.'' (''Lullaby for Radmila M.''). Bregović intended to release ''Uspavanka za Radmilu M.'' as Bijelo dugme's farewell album and to dismiss the band after the tour. The album was recorded in Skopje and featured Vlatko Stefanovski (guitar), Blagoje Morotov (double bass) and Arsen Ereš (saxophone) as guest musicians. The song "Kosovska" (''"Kosovan"'') featured Albanian language lyrics and, although featuring simple rock music-related lyrics, became provocative as it was recorded during delicate political situation in Kosovo (Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo). Songs "Ako možeš zaboravi" (''"Forget, if You Can"''), "U vrijeme otkazanih letova" (''"At the Time of Cancelled Flights"''), "Polubauk kruži poluevropom" and "Ovaj ples dame biraju" (''"Lady's Choice"'') featured different sound, illustrating various fazes in the band's career. The album title track is the only instrumental track Bijelo dugme ever recorded. Although ''Uspavanka za Radmilu M.'' did not bring numerous hits as the band's previous releases and is generally considered the least successful Bijelo dugme album, the tour was very successful, and audience's response made Bregović change his mind. After the tour the band went on a hiatus and Bebek recorded his second solo album ''Mene tjera neki vrag''. He officially left the band on April 23, 1984, deciding to dedicate himself to his solo career. Decline As the New Wave perished in the beginning of the 1980s, some of the bands split or took different musical directions. The period around 1982 is considered especially crucial concerning the decline of the New Wave in Yugoslavia. There were several other reasons why the Yugoslav New Wave started to fade beside the notable general decline of the New Wave around the world: the economical crisis in Yugoslavia in the first half of the 1980s (see: Economy of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) and the political instability, especially in the Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo in 1981 after Josip Broz Tito's death. Also, the musical genres such as post-punk, darkwave and gothic rock, as well as New Romantic and synth-pop already saw a great expansion around the world, including Yugoslavia too. '''Kosovafilmi''' was a film production, distribution and screening company in Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo, Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia). Established on February 20, 1969. Its first general director was Abdurrahman Shala. The following directors were Azem Shkreli, in which period the best movies of Kosovafilm were produced, also Xhevat Qorraj and Ekrem Kryeziu. The actual director of Kosovafilm is Gani Mehmetaj. The Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo was established in 1974 with a high degree of autonomy within the Socialist Republic of Serbia. This autonomy was curtailed by constitutional amendments in 1989, resulting in mass protests by Kosovar Albanians, many of whom were arrested by the then-Yugoslav authorities. This resulted in a declaration of a state of emergency in February 1990 and the resignation of the Provincial Council of Ministers in May. In the 1980s, Albanian (Albanians) secessionist movements in the Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo, Socialist Republic of Serbia, led to the repression of the Albanian majority in Serbia's southern province. *** Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (1945–1963)) (1944–1963), Socialist Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (1963–1990), Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (Vojvodina) (1990–1992) *** Autonomous Region of Kosovo and Metohija (Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija (1946–1974)) (1945–1974), Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo (1974–1990), Autonomous Province of Kosovo (History of Kosovo) (1990–1992) ** People's Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina) (1945–1963), Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (1963–1990), Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (1990–1992)


paper, it also sells embroidered items and paintings. It was the workshop of painter Rafael Lechuga, whose art depicts the area and the local amate paper. The Parque de los Muertes, according to tradition, is where soldiers loyal to Maximilian I (Maximilian I of Mexico) were buried. The most traditional music of the area is huapango. Traditional dress for women includes a long black skirt with a white embroidered blouse and rebozo or quezquémetl. For men, it includes undyed cotton pants and shirt, a palm leaf hat, sandals and a machete. Traditional dishes of the area include mole poblano, pipián (mole (sauce)), tamales, fresh water shrimp and a type of ant called chicales. At night, a traditional snack is “molletes,” French bread with refried beans, longaniza sausage and cheese which is toasted. Pahuatlán is one of a number of communities that claims to be the origin of the Danza de los Voladores. It hosted the fourth Danza de los Voladores ( International Encounter in 1998. The spectacle is mostly performed by the Nahuas (Nahua peoples) in the area. Category:Municipalities of Puebla Category:Populated places in Puebla Category:Pueblos Mágicos San Pablito While amate is made in a few small villages in northern Puebla, northern Veracruz and southern Hidalgo state (Hidalgo (state)), only San Pablito in Puebla (San Pablito, Puebla) manufactures the paper commercially. San Pablito is a village in the municipality of Pahuatlán located in the Sierra Norte de Puebla. Tulancingo, Hidalgo is the closest urban center. The area is very mountainous and the village itself is on the side of a mountain called the Cerro del Brujo. The making of the paper is the primary economic activity of the community and has alleviated poverty in the village. Before the villagers only had very small houses made of wood, but now they have much larger houses made of block. The paper makers here guard the process greatly and will sever contact with anyone seeking to replicate their work. López Binnqüist, page 148 In addition to providing income to the paper makers themselves the craft has been employing an increasing number of people to harvest bark, over an area which now extends over 1,500km2 in the Sierra Norte de Puebla region. López Binnqüist, pages 2-7 The village manufactures large quantities of paper, still using mostly pre-Hispanic technology and various tree species for raw material. About half of this paper production is still sold to Nahua painters in Guerrero. López Binnqüist, page 10


diverse, with each of Ethiopia's ethnic groups being associated with unique sounds. Some forms of traditional music are strongly influenced by folk music from elsewhere in the Horn of Africa, especially Somalia. However, Ethiopian religious music also has an ancient Christian element, traced to Yared, who lived during the reign of Gabra Masqal (Gabra Masqal of Axum). In northeastern Ethiopia, in Wollo, a Muslim musical form called manzuma developed. Sung

'''Tsapika''': Like the ''salegy'', ''tsapika'' (or ''tsapiky'') is an energetic form of dance music that originated from the traditional music of the southwestern region around Toliara and that has recently been adapted to contemporary instruments such as electric guitar, bass guitar and drum kit. Generally even more rapid than the ''salegy'', this 4 4 form of music features a guitar performance style inspired by traditional ''marovany'' compositions, but the influence of South African (South africa) township music is evident in both the guitars and polyharmonic vocals, often performed by female singers who repeat variations on a short refrain throughout the song. ''Tsapika'' music is performed at all manner of ceremonial occasion in the South, whether a birthday celebration, community party, or funeral. While ''salegy'' had risen to national popularity by the mid-1980s (some would argue the 1970s), ''tsapika'' only truly began to garner a similar level of widespread appreciation by the mid-1990s. It was not until the 2000 release of the "Tulear Never Sleeps" compilation album that the genre achieved international exposure on a major label (Record label). This compilation, however, showcases "traditional" ''tsapika'', such as might have more commonly been performed in rural villages twenty years ago, rather than the amplified, synthesized and remixed style in heavy rotation on radio stations performed by national stars like Tirike, Jarifa, and Mamy Gotso. '''Toliara''' (formerly '''Toliary''' or '''Tuléar''') is a former province (provinces of Madagascar) of Madagascar with an area of 161,405 km². It had a population of 2,229,550 (July, 2001). Its capital was Toliara. Near Toliara is the "spiny forest (Madagascar spiny thickets)". The name ''tsavorite'' was proposed by Tiffany and Co president Sir Henry Platt in honor of Tsavo National Park in Kenya. Apart from the source locality in Tanzania it is also found in Toliara (Tuléar) Province, Madagascar, but so far, no other occurrences of gem material have been discovered. History The Coton de Tulear developed on the island of Madagascar and is still the island's national dog. The Coton's ancestors were possibly brought to Madagascar in the 16th and 17th centuries aboard pirate ships. Madagascar was a haven for pirates, and pirate graveyards can still be seen there. Pirates established a base on St. Mary's Island, Madagascar and some of them took Malagasy wives. Whether the dogs were brought along to control rats on the ships, as companions for long voyages, or were confiscated from other ships as booty no one knows. Tulear is a port now also known as Toliara. The Coton is of the Bichon dog type, linked most closely to the Bichon Tenerife, and Tenerife Terrier. There have been many stories circulating about the history of the Coton in recent years. Most of them are untrue. The Coton de Tulear was never feral on Madagascar. It did not hunt wild boar or alligators, as its size, strength, and demeanor can disprove easily. It was a companion dog of the Merina (the ruling tribe) in Madagascar. It has very little prey drive, and is not a hunting dog. thumb left Train station (Image:Antsirabe station.jpg) The city is at the end of the TA (Tananarive-Antsirabe) railway, currently only with freight trains.
