would suit it and hailing from a musical family see edition of amir his debut album comes out october eighteenth we will talk to him about the record after we get into a beautiful performance of indigo night it's to me grandfather was a famous egyptian singer and an actor plus his parents played as well to me no continues that tradition the deluxe a calm energy he's got a measured performance in quite frankly a heavenly voice though he's been compared to jeff buckley identifies with chris cornell he played some small the gross snow assume meaning feels always been blah or so uh uh awesome curious they on wow wow you're listening to the world cafe that's to me no a performance of indigo night assemble travelers song they come asking he came from ford so many of them they are the pleasures of lives and then of course there were the tapes of my grandfather when did you start making the connection that your grandfather was a musician of i think it was mainly my mom who's record collection i on i listened to the so so many different kinds of music in there like he cries nathanson importance in egypt i mean they always told me but i never really felt it up until i the he came from mrs uh small the went to egypt again when i was like fourteen so long we we lived in egypt when i was a kid but that i don't remember it was credible things thanks i i don't think there really wasn't moment of realization i just think grow- growing up in belgium i mean no one really knows him there so it was just i ask girl stay up on i was too young but when we when we went again i still saw his DVD's cds everywhere in every shop and and musician can you tell us a little bit about your childhood and how musical it was because i imagine it was a you're surrounded by music as a youngster and if we talked about him or we asked about like people they all knew him and so that's where i really felt it but i did enjoy listening to his music from a very young age when did you realize that you your voice could do some pretty incur when i was just very angry all the time because i didn't really like school and and it's just the typical story of a teenager that there was i can very clearly remember the moment that i felt a need for writing songs you wearing a punk band and and you're nine boards can still is a a preferred vocal styling with falsetto singing yeah as well i mean over there at it was just the same i just looked at it the same wages at the time smarter saw now is a mere up next song called tummy would you play it for but then when i grew a bit older like around sixteen seventeen some other things were more important like love and all of that the grabbing a guitar and and buying some distortion pedals and anger needed to go somewhere you know and actual evolution to yet to go towards the music that i'm playing now you're listening to world cafe tamino is here at the debut album arabic music jazz classical and lots of bob as well just like the beatles and ashley or a longing for love and just the natural evolution happened in my music as well and but i do want russian of anger it's it's it's also just raw bashing that you that they express through loud guitars as well and but for me was just some other metal bands belgium-bound called i mean there are i really like and i don't think that it's it's it's not only i am the star in the s- bad is some scattered from his debut album amir you're listening to world cafe i'm kaleo so a little bit of background for people who are unfamiliar you grew up in belgium but your grandfather was a famous egyptian dean so profound shoes book i say that i i don't look at like loud bands as only an expression of anger at because i i'm i'm really big fan of soundgarden for example or senior ooh of she you want a the god sauce warn should have seen some tom com in performance here on world cafe his debut album is amir who spiders on your tummy passed out in a yard of angels absolutely gorgeous to me wow that there's a lot to unpack in that song would you would you would you let us know a little bit of what that was about well i can't tell you that i was some made of thunder it's song johnson like in my case with music maybe it's best to explain like that it always comes back to you and it thank you thank you komo q that's where that song came from i think in the yeah well we'd love for you to play for us great awesome to me now is our guest drunk when i wrote it okay but by the way the only song i wrote under influence but it's not really a love song let me even if you don't feel very worthy of it it's still comes back to you listening to world cafe a so is it slang for like boyfriend girlfriend or romantic it means my dear minded here i loved one yeah the maybe the eh long cupid credit the first single i ever release yeah yeah so one question about the word because i i looked it up to the dictionary or the the dictionary bill said help them through break-up it's for me it's like an ode to longing because i i'm from the yeah i was just moved to amsterdam was seventeen i finished high school went to amsterdam for to study their study music and then i was all alone asses though to me now it's absolutely a pleasure we would love to hear one more song before you get going i can you tell us a little bit about habibie sure yeah it's the first song of the record were i mean again it's like a song interpreting so many ways but i've had people say that it helped them through mourning process i've had the uh-huh leaves let me say that i got the feeling yeah it's it's more of i think it's just about not being able to run away from you are in the sense it all through the tweets who phosa tries but list own and in this way bigger see than i was used to and yeah i was kind of lost the business the across the rest for me back hey everybody thanks so much for listening to world cafe i am kaleo there is something striking about tamino when you meet him

Npr's new read Eisenman has more. Bruce our is a senior advisor to the Director General of the World Health Organization. He's as as much as it might look like. The world is in the midst of a global corona virus pandemic. We're actually seeing is a series of chronic outbreaks in each country. As long as you have these discreet outbreaks. There's there's the opportunity to control them. That's a big message that we saw in China and one of the big surprises. China has reduced new infections from highs of two thousand per day to less than one hundred but our who a recent fact-finding mission to China says we shouldn't attribute China's success to its most unprecedented strategy. The lockdown of cities at the epicenter of the outbreak. In many more locations he says. The approach was less draconian and focused on identifying an isolating cases and their close contacts. That he says is really making the difference Narita Eisenman. Npr News oil prices have been dropping as the new corona virus cuts into global demand. They're expected to plummet further after a surprise move by Saudi Arabia is NPR's community domino reports. The kingdom is selling oil at bargain. Basement prices low prices hurt oil producers so for weeks. Saudi Arabia has been pushing other big producers to cut output which should boost prices OPEC said okay but Russia refused after talks failed last week. Saudi Arabia has changed. Course if Riyadh can't get the price back up is going to drive the price way down because while low oil prices are bad for Saudi Arabia's budget they can be even more painful for other producers. Riyadh is offering oil at below market rates and it's poised to flood the market with a ton of that cheap crude Russia. Seems to be the target of this price. War but American oil and gas producers will also feel pain from plummeting. Prices while consumers are likely to benefit from lower gasoline prices Camilo Domino.
