WACKY WEDNESDAY: She Was Only the Dictator's Daughter


Googoosha in happier days

If you were writing a screenplay for a James Bond movie, you could come up with a far worse idea for a villain than the gorgeous daughter of a brutal, authoritarian Eurasian dictator who fancied herself an international pop star, but whose real job was running a major extortion and money-laundering operation.

But this is no spy thriller. It's the real-life story of Gulnara Karimova, daughter of Islam Karinova, the late dictator of the great nation of Uzbekistan.

She once was considered a probably successor to her brutal, corrupt father. But Gulnara's life turned into a horror show back in 2014, when, following a feud with daddy, was put under house arrest. The old despot's death in 2016 didn't help her.

In December  2017  a jury sentenced Gulnara 2017 to 10 years in prison on corruption charges.

And just last March, Uzbekistan's Supreme Court announced she'd been convicted of a slew of new charges of extortion, money laundering, misappropriating the property of others, and financial and other crimes. Before that conviction she reportedly sent a letter to the Uzbek government offering to return nearly $700 million to her country's treasury in exchange for dismissal of the charges. That didn't work.

But this is a music blog, not a foreign affairs journal. So I'm concerned here with Gulnara's alter-ego, the glamorous, dazzling musical powerhouse called Googoosha, who earlier this century foisted her own brand of Euro pablum pop onto the languishing citizens of Uzbekistan.

The critics raved:

Like so many single-named dance-music divas, the singer who performs under the hard-voweled alias Googoosha seems to exist in a cocoon of gauzy glamour shots, haute couture, and spot-lit soundstages. Unlike Ke$ha, Rihanna, Madonna, Shakira, Ciara, and Beyoncé, however, Googoosha’s output of grinding Euro disco and cheesy pop videos has barely registered on the cultural radar outside her homeland, Uzbekistan.

And there, according to a 2012 profile in the Daily Beast, Gurnara/Googoosha "is viewed as a `robber baron' by the majority of Uzbeks and is considered `the single most-hated person in the country.' "

Here are some samples of Googoosha's music from her happier days.






This one is a duet with the great French actor Gerard Depardieu:



Speaking of duets, what do Googoosha and Willie Nelson have in common? They've both done duets with Willie Nelson!



Here in the good old USA probably the closest thing to Googoosha we currently have is a young lady who dabbled in her own brand of pablum pop before her daddy started running for president. To Tiffany Trump's credit, she didn't try to use her daddy's presidency to promote her musical career and she's never been implicated in an international money laundering schemes.

And to daddy's credit, he didn't place Tiffany under house arrest after she recently posted a black square in support of justice for George Floyd on Instagram.



Just imagine a cheese-pop super group of Googoosha and Tiffany after Ms. Karinova gets out of prison.

Thanks to my brother Jack for introducing me to the magic of Googoosha. He met her in person years before her fall.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: Happy Birthday Zydeco King



Clifton Chenier, widely recognized as the King of Zydeco, would have been 95 years old today.

Happy birthday Clifton!

Just like Bill Monroe basically invented bluegrass music, using elements of the traditional music of his people woven into a distinct new musical style, Chenier was the mad scientist who created zydeco, a music still thriving today.

Here's his life story according to the National Endowment for the Arts, which in 1984 named Chenier a National Heritage Fellow:

Clifton Chenier was born June 25, 1925, in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana. His father, Joseph Chenier, was a local musician who played the accordion at home and at dances known as fais dodos. As a child, Clifton worked on a farm outside Opelousas and was interested in music. He learned the basics of accordion playing from his father, and by the time he was 16 years of age, he was playing the accordion, accompanied by his older brother Cleveland, who played the frottoir (washboard or rub-board) with a metal bottle opener. The frottoir was adapted by early African American Creoles as a rhythm instrument.

Clifton and Cleveland began performing at house dances, where the furniture was often moved aside to make room for the dancers. In time, Clifton shifted from the small diatonic accordion he had learned from his father to the larger and more flexible piano accordion. In time, the percussion in Clifton's bands grew more complex, and he added electric guitars, bass, drums, and saxophone to play larger clubs, dance halls, and juke joints between Houston and New Orleans.

As he matured, Clifton developed his own musical style, one that combined elements of traditional French Creole music with the stylization of rhythm and blues. In 1942, Clifton went to Lake Charles to play in the Clarence Garlow Band. Three years later, he married his wife, Margaret, and in 1946 he moved to Houston to work in the postwar boom.

He soon began performing again at area dances with his brother. In 1954, recording scout J. R. Fulbright, a black recording pioneer, spotted the Chenier brothers and asked them to record for his Elko label, which released a 78 rpm recording of "Louisiana Stomp" and "Clifton's Blues." These two tracks are among the earliest recorded examples of what is now known as zydeco.

In 1955, Clifton signed with Specialty Records, and his first release for that label, "Ay 'Tit Fille" ("Hey Little Girl"), was a rhythm and blues hit throughout the South. Chenier capitalized on its success and took his band, the Zydeco Ramblers, on tour. For the next eight years he recorded with several other regional labels. It wasn't until 1963, however, when he recorded with Arhoolie, a California-based label, that he attained national acclaim. Chris Strachwitz of Arhoolie Records heard Clifton play in Houston, and the next day he recorded "Ay Ai Ai" and "Why Did You Go Last Night?" for Arhoolie at a local studio. The following year Chenier recorded his first album, Louisiana Blues & Zydeco, and quickly became Arhoolie's top-selling artist.

Chenier died in December 1987.

His music is immortal.

Here's his first record, "Louisiana Stomp":



This is a factually correct later tune, "I'm the Zydeco Man":



This is a live clip from the 1977 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival:



Bless his cotton-pickin' heart:



Finally, this always has been one of my favorites. Besides the great performance, I'm also a big fan of the subject matter:
