The Diaspora model is decentralized, like email. Sooooo....just like somebody running an email server could restrict access from certain domains, a podmin can ban anybody they like from their pod. It is, technically, censorship, but that doesn't make it necessarily wrong. You should be able to prevent certain people from posting on your website. Just because you run a website, that doesn't make it an open platform for anybody to post anything they want.

Following a string of sell out shows, Marsala are back at Camelot for another huge party! Marsala covers some of the best music from Cuba, Colombia, Brazil, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia, Russia, France, Italy, Spain, Zimbabwe?

They do Gypsy Music, Tango, Salsa, Samba, the African Township thing, French Rap, Italian Jazz, Tom Waits songs, Russian Folk songs? anything to make audiences feel passionately and dance beautifully. They create passion and romance where ever they go. Audiences can?t help but dance and fall in love with each other?s traditions.

Marsala is more of an institution than a band. It brings together the life work and study of some outstanding musicians. They bring together knowledge and understanding of various traditions and continue to explore and present ?the world? in music.? Some of the incredible featured musicians in Marsala include?

Vladimir Khusid grew up in Azerbaijan and studied trumpet under the rigors of communism. He worked as a trumpet player for all of his early life. He left the USSR during the cold war and the price he paid for taking his family to the west was to have his trumpet, his lively hood confiscated at the airport as they were leaving. He worked in a bread shop in Sydney until he could buy an instrument, learned English and is now one of Sydney?s most respected and well rounded trumpet players as well as being in charge of the brass at Sydney Boys Grammar School. His maturity, wisdom and astonishing playing brings worlds of experience in classical, jazz and traditional Eastern European musical traditions.

Lupco Stojcevski, who learned the Macedonian tradition of music and saxophone from his father Blagoja Stojcevski. This family has kept that tradition alive and strong in Sydney. The saxophone is a totally unique instrument in the hands of a Macedonian musician and this is a strong feature of the Marsala World Music Mix. Lupco?s sax playing has to be seen and heard to be believed!

Dahlia Dior has re-invented herself yet again by injecting theatrical flair into her Cabaret performance, utilising her story telling and acting experience, coupled with her vocal and language skills. The result is a one woman show by a narrator/actor/singer who will transport her audience back in time to a Bohemian Paris of long ago, with its steamy garrets, starving artists, and French chanson.

Dahlia's styles vary from Jazz, blues, chansons poemes (poetic songs), chansons ralistes (realistic songs), and torch songs (love ballads), to the pulsating French Java and tango of the music halls.

Edith Piaf and Friends is a tribute to the legendary musical icons of French cabaret, with a selection of Edith Piaf?s evocative and much loved songs, including La Foule, Mon Dieu, Le Gitan et La Fille, and Je Ne Regrette Rien; George Moustaki?s popular Milord; Charles Aznavour?s romantic La Bohme; Charles Trent?s evergreen La Mer; Django Reinhardt?s evocative blues ballad Nuages; Julitte Greco?s description of naughty Paris, Paris Cannaille; and Jacques Brel's piece de resistance, Ne Me Quite Pas.

Dahlia, born in Jerusalem, commenced singing at a very early age, and quickly established herself as one of the most popular performing artists in Israel, climaxing with her starring role in the highly successful and much loved Israeli musical - Kazablan (Israeli version of West Side Story), which ran for 2 years. She is a singer of enormous vitality and energy, and her styles include jazz, blues, torch, gypsy, World Music, and sometime she burst into wild cabaret. Dahlia can authentically sing and interpret songs from all over the world, and is indeed one of the most versatile vocalists, singing in over 20 languages. She began her international career in London?s prominent West End clubs such as the Astor Club and George Raft's Colony Club on Berkley Square, and also Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Manila and Bangkok. In Australia Dahlia has performed on the same bill with legends such as Ray Charles, Matt Monro, Blood Sweat and Tears, Tiny Tim, Lulo Reinhardt, and the famous Metropolitan Opera tenor, Jan Peerce.

What the critics say: The Gallic tradition of torch songs, cabaret songs, Gypsy songs, opera and jazz is as rich as bechamel sauce, and Dahlia Dior gave us the full gamut... She sang tunes made famous by Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour, and Michel Legrand... Dior's special gift is to animate not just her face and the lyrics, but the stage and the whole room. With eyes like rising suns she charmed with demureness one moment, beguiled with raunchiness the next... this was Dior's night: as effervescent as champagne". John Shand - The Sydney Morning Herald

?There?s nothing quite as inspiring as French song when it?s done right. Dahlia Dior does it just right and doesn?t restrict herself to Piaf, but ranges over the best work by the likes of Aznavour, Montand, Chevalier, and more when she presents ?Chansons d?Amour?, a tribute to 100 years of French Cabaret? The Drum Media

I?ve waited way too long to see Dahlia Dior, and as I discover, Dahlia?s versatility across, jazz, cabaret, chanson, torch songs and much more, knows virtually no bounds. Famous and not-so-famous songs are worn together with biographical excerpts: it?s as if that little bird has confided a few secrets. Dior?s fragrant recreation of the mood and disposition of France?s ?national popular singer? is spellbinding ?.and one is transported back to her heroic beginnings. Dahlia is a consummate performer; an astonishing singer, with a commanding theatrical presence. This show alone is one which should be seen in Paris and all over the world. Wherever La Mome Piaf is known and loved. It brings her back to life. ?Padam, padam, padam!? go the heartstrings. Showbiz critic Brad Syke

The show Edith Piaf and Friends, was a sell-out at Double Bay?s Blue Beat?The chanteuse Dahlia Dior, her voice beautifully accented, rich, smooth, and well rounded, reverberating like a true French Chanson? Dahlia told the tale of the starving artist and his lover/model/muse in 'La Bohme' and then wonderfully singing Edith?s ?La Vie en Rose?. Love and Paris go together in a city that is the embodiment of our romantic fantasies, along with Edith Piaf and the songs of her era. Dahlia, echoing the longing love can evoke, and the desperation of holding on to a lover, begins Jacques Brel?s ?Ne Me Quitte Pas? beautifully in French, evoking the sentiments of Brel, who seemed to perform the words with tears running down his face? The spectre of the singer?s voice, the cabaret, the carnival, the gypsy camp, all unfold? When performing the iconic song of the quintessential Edith Piaf 'Non Je Ne Regrette Rien' Dahlia?s voice roars and soars to heaven, the audience joining at times, then spontaneously applauding and exploding with this much loved song delivered with full length and breadth without limits, like the delightful range of the singer?s voice. The show ends with the song 'Hymn a L?amour? (Hymn to Love), summing up the sentiments of the event.... Fayrose Lutta Eastside Radio

Edith Piaf and Friends is a tribute to the legendary musical icons of French cabaret, with a selection of Edith Piaf?s evocative and much loved songs, including La Foule, Mon Dieu, Le Gitan et La Fille, and Je Ne Regrette Rien; George Moustaki?s popular Milord; Charles Aznavour?s romantic La Bohme; Charles Trent?s evergreen La Mer; Django Reinhardt?s evocative blues ballad Nuages; Julitte Greco?s description of naughty Paris, Paris Cannaille; and Jacques Brel's piece de resistance, Ne Me Quite Pas.

Dahlia, born in Jerusalem, commenced singing at a very early age, and quickly established herself as one of the most popular performing artists in Israel, climaxing with her starring role in the highly successful and much loved Israeli musical - Kazablan (Israeli version of West Side Story), which ran for 2 years. She is a singer of enormous vitality and energy, and her styles include jazz, blues, torch, gypsy, World Music, and sometime she burst into wild cabaret. Dahlia can authentically sing and interpret songs from all over the world, and is indeed one of the most versatile vocalists, singing in over 20 languages. She began her international career in London?s prominent West End clubs such as the Astor Club and George Raft's Colony Club on Berkley Square, and also Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Manila and Bangkok. In Australia Dahlia has performed on the same bill with legends such as Ray Charles, Matt Monro, Blood Sweat and Tears, Tiny Tim, Lulo Reinhardt, and the famous Metropolitan Opera tenor, Jan Peerce.

What the critics say: The Gallic tradition of torch songs, cabaret songs, Gypsy songs, opera and jazz is as rich as bechamel sauce, and Dahlia Dior gave us the full gamut... She sang tunes made famous by Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour, and Michel Legrand... Dior's special gift is to animate not just her face and the lyrics, but the stage and the whole room. With eyes like rising suns she charmed with demureness one moment, beguiled with raunchiness the next... this was Dior's night: as effervescent as champagne". John Shand - The Sydney Morning Herald

?There?s nothing quite as inspiring as French song when it?s done right. Dahlia Dior does it just right and doesn?t restrict herself to Piaf, but ranges over the best work by the likes of Aznavour, Montand, Chevalier, and more when she presents ?Chansons d?Amour?, a tribute to 100 years of French Cabaret? The Drum Media

I?ve waited way too long to see Dahlia Dior, and as I discover, Dahlia?s versatility across, jazz, cabaret, chanson, torch songs and much more, knows virtually no bounds. Famous and not-so-famous songs are worn together with biographical excerpts: it?s as if that little bird has confided a few secrets. Dior?s fragrant recreation of the mood and disposition of France?s ?national popular singer? is spellbinding ?.and one is transported back to her heroic beginnings. Dahlia is a consummate performer; an astonishing singer, with a commanding theatrical presence. This show alone is one which should be seen in Paris and all over the world. Wherever La Mome Piaf is known and loved. It brings her back to life. ?Padam, padam, padam!? go the heartstrings. Showbiz critic Brad Syke

The show Edith Piaf and Friends, was a sell-out at Double Bay?s Blue Beat?The chanteuse Dahlia Dior, her voice beautifully accented, rich, smooth, and well rounded, reverberating like a true French Chanson? Dahlia told the tale of the starving artist and his lover/model/muse in 'La Bohme' and then wonderfully singing Edith?s ?La Vie en Rose?. Love and Paris go together in a city that is the embodiment of our romantic fantasies, along with Edith Piaf and the songs of her era. Dahlia, echoing the longing love can evoke, and the desperation of holding on to a lover, begins Jacques Brel?s ?Ne Me Quitte Pas? beautifully in French, evoking the sentiments of Brel, who seemed to perform the words with tears running down his face? The spectre of the singer?s voice, the cabaret, the carnival, the gypsy camp, all unfold? When performing the iconic song of the quintessential Edith Piaf 'Non Je Ne Regrette Rien' Dahlia?s voice roars and soars to heaven, the audience joining at times, then spontaneously applauding and exploding with this much loved song delivered with full length and breadth without limits, like the delightful range of the singer?s voice. The show ends with the song 'Hymn a L?amour? (Hymn to Love), summing up the sentiments of the event.... Fayrose Lutta Eastside Radio
