Ausverkaufte Konzerte in ganz Europa, Nord- und Südamerika, eine Hauptrolle im neuen Film mit Jennifer Lopez, Songs mit Madonna, Jason Derulo, Ricky Martin und Shakira, und ein Latin Grammy für sein letztes Album ? MALUMA ist der unbestritten heißeste Latin- Popstar unserer Zeit. Nach seiner frenetisch gefeierten Tour im letzten Jahr kehrt der Überflieger aus Kolumbien 2020 mit seinem neuen Album ?11:11? und einer fulminanten neuen Show nach Deutschland zurück: MALUMA in München, Frankfurt und Stuttgart erneut für Ausnahmezustand.Wo MALUMA auftaucht, sorgt er für Schnappatmung, seine Songs bringen ganze Arenen zum Beben. Auf Instagram folgen ihm 47 Millionen Fans, 22 Millionen abonnieren seinen Youtube-Channel. MALUMA jagt einen Rekord nach dem nächsten ? seine Videos wurden über neun Milliarden Mal gestreamt und seine zwei ersten Tourneen haben knapp zwei Millionen Zuschauer angelockt. MALUMAs neue ?11:11?-Welttournee übertrifft noch einmal alles und zeigt seine erstaunliche Vielfältigkeit: Die neue Show stellt mit futuristischen Elementen und dem Einsatz eines Arsenals an Lasern, audiovisuellen Effekten und Pyrotechnik seine bisherigen, bombastischen Shows sogar noch in den Schatten. Begleitet von seiner Liveband und zwölf Tänzern präsentiert MALUMA in perfekter Weise seine aufregende Mischung von Reggaeton, Mambo, Merengue und Balladen.Mit dem Song ?Farandulera? begann 2010 MALUMAs Karriere. In seiner Heimat Kolumbien wird die Single zu einem Hit, woraufhin er mit nur 16 Jahren von Sony Music Colombia unter Vertrag genommen wird. Nur drei Jahre später wird er bei den Latin Grammys für den Nachwuchspreis nominiert und wird 2014 zum Juror bei der kolumbianischen Version von ?The Voice Kids?. 2017 ist er gleich fünffach bei den Latin Grammys nominiert und ist mit den Hits ?Felices los 4?, ?Chantaje? (mit Shakira) und ?Vente pa? ca? (mit Ricky Martin) jeweils in den Königsdisziplinen Record of the Year und Song of the Year nominiert. 2018 gewann er für sein drittes Album ?F.A.M.E.? schließlich den Latin Grammy in der Kategorie Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album. Seine 2016er Single ?Chantaje? mit Shakira wurde zum Megahit, erhielt u.a. 16-fach Platin in den USA, mit ?Felices los 4? erreichte er 20-fachen Platinstatus in den USA und festigte seine Position im Pop-Olymp. MALUMAs Musik geht dabei weit über den regulären Reggaeton hinaus ? Mambo, Merengue, Reggaeton und Balladen sind in seinem Repertoire zu finden. Er selbst nennt seine Musik ?Urban Pop?. ?MALUMAs Reggaeton-Art passt wunderbar zu seinem Image ? gleichzeitig romantisch und rau?, schwärmt das Billboard Magazine. ?Sein Sound ist eine Evolution des Genres.? Sein Künstlername setzt sich aus den ersten zwei Buchstaben der Namen seiner Eltern Marlli und Luis und seiner Schwester Manuela zusammen.

John Heskett wants to transform the way we think about design by showing how integral it is to our daily lives, from the spoon we use to eat our breakfast cereal, and the car we drive to work in, to the medical equipment used to save lives. Design combines 'need' and 'desire' in the form of a practical object that can also reflect the user's identity and aspirations through its form and decoration. This concise guide to contemporary design goes beyond style and taste to look at how different cultures and individuals personalize objects. Heskett also reveals how simple objects, such as a toothpick, can have their design modified to suit the specific cultural behavior in different countries. There are also fascinating insights into how major companies such as Nokia, Ford, and Sony approach design. Finally, the author gives us an exciting vision of what design can offer us in the future, showing in particular how it can humanize new technology. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly accessible. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Yen.

For the first time, Appetite for Self-Destruction recounts the story of the precipitous rise and fall of the recording industry over the past three decades, when the incredible success of the CD turned the music business into one of the most glamorous, high-profile industries in the world - and the advent of file sharing brought it to its knees. In a comprehensive, fast-paced account full of larger-than-life personalities, Rolling Stone contributing editor Steve Knopper shows that, after the incredible wealth and excess of the '80s and '90s, Sony, Warner, and the other big players brought about their own downfall through years of denial and bad decisions in the face of dramatic advances in technology. Based on interviews with more than 200 music industry sources - from Warner Music chairman Edgar Bronfman Jr. to renegade Napster creator Shawn Fanning - Knopper is the first to offer such a detailed and sweeping contemporary history of the industry's wild ride through the past three decades. From the birth of the compact disc, through the explosion of CD sales in the '80s and '90s, the emergence of Napster, and the secret talks that led to iTunes, to the current collapse of the industry as CD sales plummet, Knopper takes us inside the boardrooms, recording studios, private estates, garage computer labs, company jets, corporate infighting, and secret deals of the big names and behind-the-scenes players who made it all happen. 1.

As a young man, John Reynolds fled his provincial hometown of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania for Los Angeles, lured by the promise of a life fueled by the excitement of show business. But after 20 years in Hollywood, Reynolds feels existentially unfulfilled. He resides in a beautiful mansion with his wife and daughter, and his business is booming, but Reynolds remains despondent as his attempts to pivot into producing his own movie projects fail again and again. Depressed and at a creative dead end, Reynolds finds himself inexplicably drawn back to the historical setting of his youth: he has secretly signed up to participate in a weekend-long reenactment of the Battle of Gettysburg in the unlikely California town of Enchino, 60 miles east of Los Angeles. Just before his departure, an ex-Playmate - the very centerfold of Reynolds’s adolescent daydreams - pitches him her idea for a reality TV show. When Reynolds impulsively invites the former Playmate and her best friend, a former Miss Universe, to accompany him to the reenactment, his plans for a solitary weekend of self-discovery run amok. With a compulsively listenable narrative that offers a satirical portrait of Hollywood - the deal-making, the politics, the pitches - Gettysburg is an intelligent and powerful book about contemporary America.Copyright 2019 by Kevin Morris.

Taylor Swift is an American singer-songwriter. One of the world's leading contemporary recording artists, she is known for narrative songs about her personal life, which have received widespread media coverage. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Swift moved to Nashville, Tennessee at the age of 14 to pursue a career in country music. She signed with the label Big Machine Records and became the youngest artist ever signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house. Her 2006 self-titled debut album peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 and spent the most weeks on the chart in the 2000s. The album's third single, "Our Song", made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Hot Country Songs chart. Swift's second album, Fearless, was released in 2008. Buoyed by the success of pop crossover singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me", Fearless became the best-selling album of 2009 in the US. The album won four Grammy Awards, with Swift becoming the youngest Album of the Year winner. As a songwriter, Swift has received awards from the Nashville Songwriters Association and the Songwriters Hall of Fame and was included in Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time in 2015. She is also the recipient of 10 Grammys, six Guinness World Records, one Emmy Award, 23 Billboard Music Awards, and 12 Country Music Association Awards. Swift is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 40 million albums - including 27.8 million in the US - and 130 million single downloads. She has appeared in Time's 100 most influential people in the world (2010 and 2015), Forbes' top-earning women in music (2011-2015), Forbes' 100 most powerful women (2015), and Forbes' Celebrity 100 (2016). Her inclusion in the third of these made her the youngest woman on the list, and she ranked first in Celebrity 100. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Claire De Cleene Neigenfind.
