Best of Music Tribe (November 2020)
Here are the best posts of this month on Music Tribe!
November 2020 has been another great month for content on Music Tribe! It was initially a bit difficult for me to choose what the best article of the month would be, but then it was pretty obvious what the winner would be when it eventually came along! As with last month as well, there are quite a few honourable mentions that I've included in here because they're great articles you should absolutely check out.
November 2020's winner:
This brilliant article by Stephen Pedroff talks about how musician Pit Pawlaw created a song that became a protest anthem in his home country of Belarus. With Belarus's political issues surrounding its strongman president being a hot topic at the moment, this article couldn't have come along at a more timely moment. Enjoy your 250 TribeCoins, Stephen!
A protest anthem has emerged in Belarus, sung in school yards, in cafes, in army barracks, and by both the guards and prisoners in the jails of Minsk
Valentina Zanola gave us a great insight into the background of David Bowie's all-time classic 'Heroes' in this article. Coming from Bowie's celebrated Berlin period where he was a full-time resident of Berlin during the later years of the Cold War, the song is emblematic of so many things of the era. If you want to learn more about the world behind this incredible song, this article is a great one to read!
Valentina has also done several articles this month about music-related places that you absolutely need to visit. Two of these places are located in London, UK and one of them is located in Prague, Czech Republic, so if you're in either of these fantastic cities in post-COVID times you should definitely go and check out these little pieces of music history!
Any other suggestion? What's a music related place you would love to visit?
Let's move to Czech Republic to find another cool place.
Freddie Mercury's house and studio in London
Alessandro Renesis also provided us with a short but brilliant story about a kareoke night in Los Angeles! I'm sure we've all embarrassed ourselves whilst doing kareoke at some point...
This story is mostly about nostalgia
The same competition will be running for next month (December 2020) with the same prize of 250 TribeCoins, so if you submit a great piece of writing to Music Tribe you could be in with a chance of winning that prize. As it's the Christmas period, you might be a bit more likely to be in with a chance of winning if your article is Christmas-themed...
