Songhoy Blues
This event is 18 and over
Songhoy Blues

Once among the most prominent of Mali's many ethnic groups, the Songhoy now live largely on the margins of the West African nation. Nonetheless, the Songhoy people retain a fierce pride in their history, beliefs, and traditional music. Hailing from the heart of Gao, on the banks of the Niger River, Oumar Tour and Aliou Tour grew up obsessed with hip hop, R&B, and classic rock like The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix. They found a kindred spirit and musical brother in guitarist Garba Tour (son of Oumar Tour, long term percussionist in Ali Farka Tour's band). When growing unrest in the north of Mali forced the young men and their families to take refuge in the southern town of Bamako, they decided to turn crisis into opportunity by forming a band. They enlisted drummer Nathanial "Nat" Dembele and baptized their band Songhoy Blues in celebration of their displaced people and culture.

The ambitious young band were soon a fixture on the Bamako live music scene. Prompted by local studio owner, in September 2013 Songhoy Blues reached out to producer/manager Marc-Antoine Moreau (Amadou & Mariam, K'Naan), in town to scout new talent for the extraordinary Africa Express project. An audition followed and Songhoy Blues were invited to record a track with Nick Zinner, acclaimed producer and guitarist in NYC's one and only Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The song, entitled "Soubour," proved a highlight of 2013's critically applauded "AFRICA EXPRESS PRESENTSMAISON DES JEUNES."

Songhoy Blues will herald Music In Exile with a series of much anticipated North American live dates joining Alabama Shakes at NYC's Beacon Theatre Thursday, March 12th as well as at Chicago's The Chicago Theatre Saturday, March 14th and Milwaukee's Riverside Theatre Sunday, March 15th. Additional North American tour dates will be announced soon.

In addition to their increasingly busy live schedule, Songhoy Blues also appear in an eagerly anticipated new film documenting Malian musicians' fight with the extremist forces that have seen music banned in much of the country. They Will Have To Kill Us First: Malian Music In Exile will have its world premiere at Austin's South By Southwest Film Festival 2015

Barnstar! forges its own brand of song-based bluegrass, gloriously harmonized and raucously played. The band debuted in 2011 with C'mon!, a mix of distinctive originals and unexpected covers (Neil Young, Dawes, The Traveling Wilburys) cut live in the studio. Despite juggling various high-profile sideman gigs behind other artists, the lads in Barnstar! managed to cause quite a stir with relatively few appearances. Whether playing above 10,000 feet in the Colorado mountains, dressing up like pirates on a boat cruising around Boston Harbor, or starting a small skirmish over the last CD in Shrewsbury, England shouts of "C'mon!" followed the band everywhere they went. In February 2015, Barnstar! proudly unleashes its sophomore release Sit Down! Get Up! Get Out! (Signature Sounds), which sports a more richly-textured sound than its predecessor. Though it is no less imperative in its demands.

30hands Academy. Summer 2015. 2 Tracks: Intro to Coding or Entrepreneurship
Professional Development does not happen in just 1 hour. That only wets your whistle which will dry out quickly.This summer, we are starting with a 1-day workshop and then letting you decide if you want to keep going. 30hands Learning's professional development courses are geared toward spending enough time with the subject-matter to let the learning really soak in. But time alone is not enough, so we add 2 critical ingredients: hands-on learning + collaboration. These two spices are the keys to understanding how to apply the concepts, and they help learners retain this understanding much longer than by just reading about concepts or listening to someone explain them. Learner engagement in the learning process makes all the difference. Learn Experientially, so you can teach your students better. Start with Design Thinking and then follow Iterative Creativity to your final project completion.

Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) - Boston
Course Description 66% of software features are rarely or never used. Making the right product decisions, building the right features, and incorporating feedback is the difference between building products that satisfy customers and building products that delight and engage them. As one of the largest and fastest-growing agile frameworks, Scrum is a simple, yet powerful way to manage product requirements, elevate quality, and accelerate project delivery. One of the key roles in Scrum is that of Product Owner, the person tasked with setting and communicating the product vision, the one who ultimately determines what gets built. The BigVisible Certified Scrum Product Owner course is a 2-day, hands-on workshop, filled with practical advice and time-tested techniques designed to give students the foundation they need to succeed with Scrum. Our Certified Scrum Trainers are coaches first, which means that long after your course is over, we have the experience and expertise to provide ongoing support and assist you in implementing what you've learned.

Course delivery is varied for optimal learning, with activities ranging from case study analyses and in-depth lectures, to hands-on exercises and interactive games. Each person will leave this course empowered with practical, applicable advice and skills they can apply to their own projects and teams. Agenda & Learning Objectives Our CSPO course covers a broad range of topics, including: How Scrum helps organizations cope with change, budget constraints, quality issues, and more The product owner role and how it differs from traditional roles, such as business analyst Ways to manage the product backlog and write effective user stories Pragmatic practices for managing and communicating the scope and vision of a product How to partner effectively with a development team Strategies for delivering faster by taking advantage of the iterative, incremental nature of Scrum Courses typically run from 8:30am to 5:00pm, though the exact hours may vary.Coffee in the morning, lunch, and an afternoon snack are provided and are included in the course price.These informal breaks are outstanding opportunities to visit and network with your trainer and classmates. Intended Audience This course is appropriate for stakeholders, business analysts, managers, product owners, and anyone who wants to understand what agile and Scrum are all about from the product-owner perspective. Though no agile experience is required, some experience managing projects is helpful.
