On Armenia centennial, US rockers hope music raises pressure

Yahoo! Music News - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 01:43

US band System of a Down poses backstage at the MTV European Music Awards after winning best alternative act on November 3, 2005 in LisbonOne hundred years after the mass killings of Armenians, US band System of a Down is taking the fight for remembrance beyond politicians to the world's music fans. The Los Angeles-area hard rockers, who have sold more than 40 million albums since the mid-1990s, are of Armenian descent and are preparing a European tour to culminate in a public concert on April 23 in Yerevan, the band's first performance in Armenia. System of a Down's goal is one for which Armenians have campaigned for decades -- with limited success -- for the world to recognize the killings of some 1.5 million people in 1915 in the waning days of the Ottoman Empire as a genocide. Turkey, born of the ashes of the Ottoman Empire, has vehemently denied a systematic effort to wipe out Armenians.

Android application logo of Swedish music streaming service SpotifyThis week's all-star launch of US rapper Jay Z's streaming music service may not have caused Spotify's management to lose sleep -- but analysts predict tough days ahead as tech giant Apple prepares to enter the fray. After a day's silence the news was welcomed by the world leader Spotify, despite the barely veiled criticism of streaming companies like it from US superstars including Madonna and Alicia Keys at the launch in New York. Jonathan Forster, Spotify's vice president for Europe, told AFP in Stockholm that his company welcomed the artists' initiative. Spotify has come under fire from artists like British band Radiohead and US pop star Taylor Swift -- who has shifted her catalogue to Tidal -- protesting that Spotify does not pay artists their fair share.
