The big surprise: Ivar

Dutch multi-instrumentalist and singer Ivar Vermeulen appears with an untitled CD in the category ‘nu-soul’. The IJmuidenaar was discovered in 2000 by talent scout Jan Tekstra and brought in as a musical prodigy. What do you want, if you write, compose, play and sing almost everything yourself with a dike of a voice.

The album features 11 adult pop songs by Gino Vannelli, Terence Trent D’Arby and Barry White.

On his debut CD, the boy with the warm voice makes a deep impression. And not just like that! Tightly produced soul with a sharp edge. Where many American soul mates engage with smooth, almost dulled songs, Ivar holds his own with potential hits.

Like ‘Non Stop’, a song that should go a long way in the international charts, and also ‘Day by Day’, which sounds like a song Buckshot LaFonque had his teeth set in. Ivar has a voice that can do a lot. Then he sounds like the sweet little boy in ‘Lesson’, then like the old White himself in ‘Magic’, and then again as a rough bolster in ‘I’m In Too Deep’.

Let it be clear Ivar is a breath of fresh air in a world dominated by saltless Craig Davids. Best songs: ‘Winter Blues’, and ‘Like I Do’: goosebumps at its most intense.

Yakymour, home of Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan, thè place in the mid 50's 'till the late 80's, where fashion, art, beauty and love meet each other, from all over the world.... Playing as a child in the garden of Yakymour was a happy, innocent time, thanx to ‘Grandma’ Yaky and to Sadruddin, where I could be fully myself and forget ‘the bad things’, and get some strenght. The Last 30 years working as cosmetologist and as a make-up artist for television, theatre, film, fotoshoots, fashion shows, celebrities and individuals gave me a trunk full of experience. My work brought me all over the world and had photoshoot's on location in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, India a.o. At this Blog you will find many reviews of cosmetics, fashion, art, and everything beautiful, as an ode to Begum Om Habibeh 'Yaky' Aga Khan, and named after the place where 'everything' was beautiful: Yakymour. You will find here all the in and outs about skincare, perfums, and make-up, the do's and don'ts, the why's and how's.... The stories behind, and some great interviews... So when you have any question.... please ask. Come on in.... feel yourself at home at Yakymour! Jean Amr P.S. My apologies for future grammatical errors. English is not my mother language :)
