Muqdisho (Bartamaha)Cimraan Binu Xaddaad waxa uu ahaa nin carbeed oo ah dadka hadalladooda inta badan lagu qoslo. Si la mid ah sheeko dhaqameedka kala duwan, ee Soomaalida iyo Carabtaba dadka nocoan Cimraan ah aad ayaa la isugu khilaafaa shakhsiyaddooda, fariid, doqon, geesi, fulay, xikmaawi iwm. Sidaas oo kale ayaa ay dad badanina Cimraan ku sheegaan in uu ahaa damiin, laakiin damiinnimada ay u dheerayd laba tilmaamood oo qofka ay isku raacaan aanu aadamaha uu la nool yahay ad-yad la’aan ku dhex joogi karin; Waa gaabni xad dhaaf ahayd iyo fool xumo.

Cimraan oo mid ka mid ah qisooyinkiisa maadayska ah ee dunida laga jecleystay ayaa  uu qabay afo aad u qurux badan, qurux keliya ma’aha ee gabadhan waxaa u dheeraa fariidnimo iyo xikmad dadku aad ugu barteen, taas oo sabab u noqotay in qof kasta oo labadooda isu arkaa uu u qaato in guurka lammaanahani kuu ka mid yahay mucjisooyinka mar la’aragga ah. Waa laba ruux oo muuqaalka duleed ee abuurka ah, iyo quruxda qarsoon oo caqliga ahba aad ugu kala duwan.

Cimraan qudhiisu waa uu dareensanaa quruxda aadka ah ee xaaskiisa, oo malaha isaga qudhiisa ayaaba u qaadan la’aa in calaf gabadha dhegtaa leh ku simay, sidaa awgeed mar kasta oo uu guriga joogo, hawsha keliya ee uu qabtaa waxa ay ahayd in uu ku dheygago ka bogashada quruxda qalanjadiisa, waa kasta oo berya waxa uu ku eegayayaa indho ruuxa aan isu aqoonin u qaadan lahaa in ay yihiin dad isku cusub.

Haddaba, Maalin maalmaha ka mid ah ayaa uu cimraan goor duhur ah ku soo noqday gurigiisa. Isla markii uu xaaskiisa la kulmay waxa uu u eegay si yaab badan oo ay ka muuqato in uu ka helay quruxdeeda, waa deymo kaba sii xeeldheer tii ay hore uga baratay, sidaa awgeed xaaskiisu iyada oo aad uga yaabban ayaa ay ku tidhi, “Maxaa dhacay ee aad sidaas iigu eegaysaa?”

–  Cimraan ayaa ugu jawaabay, “Maalinba maalinta ka dambaysa qurux ayaa kuu kordhaysa”

– Gabadhii ayaa inta ay dhoolla caddaysay tidhi, “Aniga iyo adiguba jannada ayaa aynu gelaynaa ee ku bishaarayso”

– Cimraan ayaa inta uu hadalkan ka yaabay, waxa uu gabadhii weydiiyey, “Oo maxaa aad ku garatay in aynu Jannada gelayno”

– Waxa ay gabadhii ugu jawaabtay, “Nimcada aad aragto (Nafteeda ayaa ay u jeeddaa) ayuu rabbi kugu galladay, adna kuma aad kufriyin ee Alle ayaa aad uga mahadnaqday nimcada uu ku siiyey … Anigana imtixaanka aad ogtahay (Fool xumidiisa) Ayaa uu Alle i baday, markaasaan ku samray” Nimcada Alle oo laga shukri celiyo iyo imtixaanka adduun oo lagu samrana, sida ay diiintu sheegtay abaalkoodu waa Jannada.

Markaasay markii cashada la soo dhigayna tidhi “Alla hoogay soo aniga is ilaaway, huuno maad i qabatid maraqa waan necebahaye.

Laying down tracks for their debut album in the recording studio in Los Angeles, Iman Hashi, 25 and her sister Siham, 27 could not be further from their hometown of Mogadishu. The sisters were born in the Somali capital but were forced to flee after war broke out in 1991.

Along with their parents, the girls relocated to Canada as refugees where during their teens they discovered a passion for music.

Heading south to LA by way of Atlanta, the singing sisters with a bold flair for fashion are now embarking on a musical journey, gearing up to unleash their Afro-pop sound to the world.

CNN’s African Voices caught up with the sister act – known collectively as Faarrow (combining the translation of their names into English — Iman means “Faith” and Siham means “Arrow”) to talk about music, aspirations and Somalia.

CNN: Hi guys, thanks for chatting with me today. What are some of your musical influences?

Iman: We love Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie — stuff my mom would listen to and play — and the Spice Girls. We used to die for the Spice Girls. I love new artists now but I don’t know if it’s a nostalgia, but I remember … my mom used to pump whatever — Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston.

CNN: You are working on your debut album now — how’s that been?

Siham: We’ve been working with Elijah Kelley — he’s actually an actor. He was in “Hairspray,” “The Butler,” and most recently he was in the George Lucas animation, “Strange Magic.” That’s what he’s more known for but his first passion is music. He’s an incredible producer, writer and singer. I just felt like he was always the missing piece. He brought everything together.

CNN: So now that you’ve found your “missing piece,” how would you describe your sound?

Siham: Our music before was experimenting with Afrobeat sounds but now it’s more of a fusion (of what) we are inspired by. It’s pop with undertones of hip hop and rhythmic African percussion. It’s a fusion of everything.

CNN: And do you guys write the songs as well?

Siham: The entire album was pretty much (written and produced) by me, my sister and Elijah. And when we signed we already had a lot of those songs already done. Warner Brothers Records is really great in that way that they already loved what we were doing and let us do our own thing.

CNN: What are you listening to right now?

Siham: Oh my God, there’s so many!

ImanSia with “Chandelier.”

Siham: I really love this new song — I don’t know if Iman is going to agree with me — but his name’s LunchMoney Lewis, it’s called Bills; I love it.

-

CNN: As well as your music, you both work with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) — how did you start your humanitarian work?

Iman: Ever since we were kids we wanted to help Somalia, we always talked about it. But we were like “what can we physically do?”

We were doing some research and we called our mom and she said ‘You know you still have family over there. There’s a refugee camp in Kenya and your great uncle and his kids live in a refugee camp.’ And we did some research about Dadaab refugee camp, it’s a massive camp that has taken in Sudanese refugees, Somali refugees, Rwandan refugees — pretty much anywhere there was a conflict. Everybody fled to Dadaab. In the beginning (it was) pure advocacy talking about it on Twitter and Facebook.

CNN: But then you decided to “up your game” as it were…

Iman: Yes, then we started a non-profit and we’d do small benefit concerts in Toronto and in San Diego — wherever there was a big Somali community we would do outreach but all we had was our singing, working with UNHCR in a capacity as a spokesperson. We headlined World Refugee Day at the Kennedy Center, as well as the Nansen Awards twice in Geneva. We felt like this platform of singing — the bigger it gets, the more we can do.

Siham: We obviously love fashion so we wanted to do our own socially conscious brand so we’ve been making these bracelets and necklaces called “Wish Creatively.” Wish stands for “Women Internationally Selling Hope.” We wanted to do a socially conscious brand where we sell these bracelets where it goes back to projects in Kenya or Somalia with women providing them with a sustainable income.

Screen shot 2015-04-15 at 9.10.24 PM

CNN: So what’s next for you two?

Siham: We’re actually in the mixing process right now. We still have a few (tracks) to finish up but the majority of the album is pretty much done. We want to turn it in as soon as possible so they can put together a rollout plan and get ready for the first single to drop.

Iman: I don’t feel like we ever lost that feeling like we’re creative spokespersons for our generation as well as for Somalia. I feel like now because we followed our dreams it’s like ‘they’re not just refugees anymore.’ We don’t have to become doctors so we can one day give back to Somalia and help rebuild — it’s such a beautiful dream but not ours. In our culture, anything creative is not really respected or appreciated. But I feel like now but even with our new deal we’re still trucking along. I feel like we inspire people.

The Guardian — The X-Files is set to return to television screens for the first time in 13 years, with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson resuming their roles as Mulder and Scully.

The US broadcaster Fox has confirmed that a six-episode series will begin production in the summer. The broadcast date has yet to be revealed.

The series creator Chris Carter described the show’s absence as “a 13-year commercial break” and added: “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

The six-episode run is shorter than most US TV series, and Fox described the X-Files return as an “event”. Dana Walden and Gary Newman, chair and CEO of FoxTelevision Group, said: “We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of The X-Files – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers – and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again.

“The X-Files was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as The X-Files, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”

The original series was cancelled in 2002, although Duchovny and Anderson returned for a feature film, X-Files: I want to Believe, in 2008. Rumours of the show’s return have swirled around the internet for years, and in 2013 Anderson and Duchovny generated much excitement when they hinted during an online discussion that another X-Files film might be in the works.

Such was the on-screen chemistry between FBI investigators Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in their quest to explain the unexplained that Anderson and Duchovny themselves became a story – according to the press at various times during the height of the show’s popularity, they were having an affair, hated each other or both.

This year Anderson told the Guardian’s Simon Hattenstone: “I mean, yes, there were definitely periods when we hated each other … Hate is too strong a word. We didn’t talk for long periods of time. It was intense, and we were both pains in the arse for the other at various times.”

Since the last X-Files series, Anderson has starred in a string of literary adaptations – as Lady Dedlock in Bleak House, Lily Bart in The House of Mirth, Miss Havisham in the BBC’s Great Expectations, and Mrs Castaway in The Crimson Petal and The White – and more recently she played Supt Stella Gibson inmurder drama The Fall, which has been recommissioned for a third series set to air next year.

Anderson also received warm reviews for her performance as Blanche in a fetedYoung Vic revival of Tennessee Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire.

Duchovny found further success in the US with Californication, which finished a seven-season run last year. This year he published his debut novel, Holy Cow, in which a cow called Elsie, a pig called Shalom and a turkey called Tom escape a farm in upstate New York in search of a better life.

My Philosphy – Alot of people of my generation first heard of Somalia in the early 1990s, during its civil war. What I didn’t know was that Somalia is also known asthe Nation of Poets, where being slick with words and nice with language is an honored tradition, intrinsic to the people. Skilled poets hold prestigious roles within the culture, from the royal family on down.

Keeping that tradition alive in a new context is Malitia MaliMob, who I’d first heard of in early 2012 on a tip from Tendai Maraire of Shabazz Palaces/Chimurenga Renaissance. He’d come across the videos of this young crew of Seattle-based Somali rappers, clocking thousands of views, but more importantly, the comments from other young Malis, happy to have found rappers whose story they related to. I got to know that story a little better on tour with MMM, who were opening shows for Shabazz and THEESatisfaction across the US, getting unexpecting crowds rowdy off their brand of realness. You can check out MMM at their show at Barboza with Chimurenga Renaissance on Wednesday, March 4.

The main body of MMM—MCs Chino’o and Krown—met in the US after leaving behind the country, and the civil war, they’d always known. Chino’o told me they’d been rescued by men our news outlets call pirates. MMM’s first album, 2012′s Riots of the Pirates, made a big impression on me for its urgent take on gangsta rap, as seen through the latest iteration of the African diaspora. Their 2013 Idi Amin Project refined their aggressive approach with a heady trap edge and a deeper perspective—not to mention a fiercer delivery, especially in the gravelly no-love-and-no-fucks-given growl of Chino’o.

That voice anchors their newest release, which dropped back in January after a couple of years in the works—recording was complicated by the fact that Krown has been locked up in King County since 2013. Umm, the record is calledISIS. Sooo… why ISIS? No idea—but I know a certain Seattle rapper who once likened himself to Adolf Hitler, and Dipset gave a shout-out to Mohamed Atta. Also, closing track “I Am James Foley (RIP)” leads me to believe that MMM don’t sympathize with those statue-smashing dickheads, so let’s keep them and me off any lists, okay, Feds?

It is what it is, and MMM’s seven-track project is starving, unapologetic, born-to-die street-soldier rap with giant beats, fusing Chief Keef nihilism to M.I.A. globalism, plus some startling moments of clarity, adding up to what might well be the African immigrant Me Against the World. As with 2Pac, sleeping on MMM is sleeping on some of the deepest frustration in our streets. Do you sit on FB commenting on scary-ass status updates bemoaning “Somali gangbangers” on Pike Street while ignoring the fact that 300,000 of your neighbors can’t send money home anymore because of the war on terror? It’s all in the words of ISISgem “Perception”: Come ride wit’ us/Come smoke wit’ us/Come chill wit’ us/’Stead of sitting there, just judging us.

BBC – Somali author Diriye Osman has become the first African to win the Polari First Book Prize for his collection of short stories entitled Fairy Tales for Lost Children.

The Polari prize is awarded for a first book which explores the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.

The judges said Osman’s book “dazzled” them with the wide range of literary voices in a stunning collection of short stories. BBC Africa’s Jenny Horrocks asked him to read from the opening story, Watering the Imagination.

WAAYAHA CUSUB SEEK ASYLUM IN NETHERLANDS

WAAYAHA CUSUB SEEK ASYLUM IN NETHERLANDS

A popular Somali band has been forced to seek asylum in the Netherlands after Kenya revoked its refugee status, its lead singer has told the BBC.

Falis Abdi Mohamud said Kenyan officials seized her refugee card and that of four other band members when they flew out of Nairobi last month.

The band – famous for singing against Islamic extremism – was due to return on 11 October after performing at a peace concert in Amsterdam.

Kenya has not commented on their case.

Its government has been cracking down on Somali refugees and immigrants, accusing them of harbouring fighters from militant Islamist group al-Shabab.

‘Children left behind’

The group is fighting to create an Islamic state in Somalia, and has also carried out a series of attacks in neighbouring Kenya.

The BBC Somali Service’s Abdirahman Koronto says it is ironic that the band, Waayaha Cusub (The New Dawn), appears to have been targeted by Kenyan immigration authorities.

The band gained popularity for denouncing al-Shabab though its songs and one of its members, Shine Akhyar, was shot and wounded by suspected militants in Nairobi in 2007, he says.

Mrs Mohamud told the BBC Somali Service that she wanted to return to Kenya, where she had lived for more than a decade, because her three children were there.

However, she was scared of being deported to Somalia, she said.

“They [Kenyan immigration officials] told me if I return they will put me on a plane to Mogadishu,” Mrs Mohamud added.

The Netherlands was now considering their request for asylum, she said.

Somalia has been hit by instability since the overthrow of long-serving ruler Siad Barre in 1991.

African Union and government forces have driven out al-Shabab from its urban strongholds, but the group still controls large swathes of territory in rural areas.

Fishing Without Nets

Fishing Without NetsShot in East Africa with Somali actors and directed by 2014 Sundance award-winning director, Cutter Hodierne, FISHING WITHOUT NETS tells the mesmerizing and sobering story of the bandits from the Somali point of view. First-time feature filmmaker Hodierne combines the epic cinematic vision of a glorious action thriller with the intimate, textured qualities of an art film, humanizing the pirates by bringing us inside their moral dilemmas and gut-wrenching struggles.

Fishing Without Nets

Fishing Without Nets

The pirates gather on a ragged beach and sail toward shipping lanes, scanning for freighters, the prey of their craft. Rifles drawn, scarves blowing, they troll East African waters, where the deeds of desperate men collide with the precarious rhythms of global finance. An oil tanker appears on the horizon; the hunt quickens.

The acclaimed feature tells the story of a young Somali lured into the world of piracy to support his family, tackling the very well publicized "Somali Pirates" phenomenon, but specifically from the Somali point of view.
The acclaimed feature tells the story of a young Somali lured into the world of piracy to support his family, tackling the very well publicized “Somali Pirates” phenomenon, but specifically from the Somali point of view.

“Fishing Without Nets,” the first feature by director Cutter Hodierne, an American who once filmed rock stars, is an incisive tale of Somali villagers who have forsaken fishing nets for Kalashnikovs to hijack ships and kidnap crews for millions of dollars in ransom. Relying mostly on non-professional actors, including Somali refugees living in Kenya, the film offers the cultural authenticity and nuance that often elude Hollywood portrayals of pirates, jihadists, fanatics and other bad men confounding American foreign policy.

The $2-million-budget movie is not as bracing as Paul Greengrass’ “Captain Phillips” (2013), which starred Tom Hanks and earned an Academy Award nomination for Somali-born actor Barkhad Abdi’s portrayal of an overwhelmed pirate. Abdi’s bandit, with his poverty and grandiose ambitions, was a well-drawn counterpoint to Hanks’ composed captain. But “Fishing,” which opens Friday, is a fuller immersion into the lives, pressures, anger and discontent of bandits who play chess with bottle caps, stew in corrugated tin huts and barter for white hostages much like black slaves were sold hundreds of years ago.

The film is reminiscent of “Horses of God,” directed by Nabil Ayouch, which also used non-professional actors in a compelling story of youths who embrace radical Islam and plot a terrorist attack from the squalor of a Moroccan slum. “Fishing” and “Horses,” released in the U.S. this year, reveal how desperation and detachment from an increasingly interconnected world can twist young men toward ideologies and crimes that shake financial markets and unnerve capitals from London to Mogadishu.

The pirates along the Somali coast are after riches; the North African jihadists seek a perverted brand of religious redemption. Both yearn for dignity, a voice against all that befalls their circumscribed lives. Depictions of such characters can easily be mythologized or stereotyped, especially by a public and a Congress that prefer one-dimensional villains. But Al Qaeda and its vicious offshoot, Islamic State, have revealed that the West’s enemies are more complex.

The power of “Fishing,” which won Hodierne a directing award this year at the Sundance Film Festival, is in the way it seeks to understand the men holding the guns in a war-ravaged land. Somali pirates, whose raids have decreased in recent years because of stepped up naval security, have attacked hundreds of vessels and cost the global economy tens of billions of dollars.

Hodierne’s actors are lean and tough as jerky; they seem sprung from heat and coastal sands. They know boats, rifles and nets and glide on anger, betrayal and suspicion. One suspects that in real life they have never encountered publicists or swag bags.

“I was determined to tell the story through the eyes of the pirates, but I was a white guy living in Washington, D.C.,” said Hodierne, who during his time in Kenya was robbed once at gunpoint and often swindled. “I definitely didn’t go into it to make an ‘issue’ film. We wanted to explore the gray areas and to tell the human story to answer the question of how and why…. There’s no way to get that sense of reality without using people [actors] who at some level are close to the story.”

“Fishing” grew out of an award-winning short film that Hodierne, who was once “filmmaker on the road” for the band U2, made several years ago. He said the bravado of the pirates fascinated him. By the time the life of a jihadist or a pirate reaches the news, “you’re only seeing the final frame of a guy’s life,” said Hodierne, 27, who spent the first three years of his childhood sailing the South Pacific with his parents. “But there’s a whole bunch of pictures leading to that moment.”

Variety praised the movie as a “very well-crafted, empathetic drama.” The judges at Sundance called it “a beautiful, poetic film.”

“Fishing” unfolds around Abdi (played by Abdikani Muktar), a fisherman whose dwindling catches in the overfished and polluted waters around the Horn of Africa can no longer feed his family. Smoldering garbage, crows, ash, sweat and dust mark his village, where he remembers his deceased father and listens to the call to prayer drifting from a mosque. Other young men chew khat, a narcotic plant that gives an amphetamine-like buzz, and wait for word of a tanker in the distance.

“After years of war and famine, people have fled,” says Abdi, whose country for decades has been gripped by civil strife and Islamic militants. “But those who remain must find a way to survive.” Abdi initially resists the lure of the pirates but finally succumbs, hiring a smuggler to take his wife and son to Yemen while he heads to the open water.

“A man is not a man unless he can feed his children,” says Abdi. But his decision entangles him with ruthless and divided men. They clean battered guns and argue over the pecking order of hostages: One tells another not to worry about the blacks or the man who looks Filipino; only the white ones bring ransom. In a scene reminiscent of centuries ago when black slaves were inspected before they were sold, a Somali pirate feels the arms and shoulders and looks into the mouth of a Frenchman he has offered to buy.

Abdi faces moral questions and finds no safe place upon the water or on the land. He is a good man consumed by darker impulses and, in ways, becomes as much a hostage to the violence and delusional ambitions of his fellow pirates as the oil tanker’s crew. The vessel is streaked with blood and broken promises and Abdi, much like his country, is left adrift amid larger currents.

The film’s international dimensions and raw narrative intrigued Vice Media, known for swaggering documentaries like “The Cannibal Generals of Liberia.” Eddy Moretti, Vice’s chief creative officer, was an executive producer of “Fishing,” and the film — the company’s first feature — was edited at the firm’s Brooklyn, N.Y., studios.

“Usually when someone [in Hollywood] says, ‘I’m going to make a gritty film in a gritty land,’ it never comes out gritty,” said Moretti. “You get an American actor surrounded by hair and makeup people…. This film brings a bit of empathy that’s not political. You enter the world of these characters.”
