Revisit the highlights of a year that gave us classic after classic at a pivotal time in music, culture and the industryPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Nov 13, 2018 – 5:57 pm Looking back from 25 years later, a case is being made for 1993 as a remarkable year in music. There are so many ways to look at it, but NPR’s World Cafe is definitely a fan, recently posing the question, “Was 1993 the greatest year in music?” While the world may never agree, it’s certainly worth exploring…Early in the year, looking back at 1992, the Record Of The Year at the 35th GRAMMY Awards went to Eric Clapton’s “Tears In Heaven.” At the 36th GRAMMY Awards for 1993, Record Of The Year went to Whitney Houston for “I Will Always Love You” from the soundtrack to The Bodyguard. Much of the music from that year is still dearly loved.It was also the year Wu-Tang Clan debuted with Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). It was the year of Bjork’s Debut, after the break-up of her group, The Sugarcubes. Her Best Music Video-Short Form nomination for “Human Behavior” at the 36th GRAMMY Awards was her first of 14 career-total nominations to date.Noteworthy first-time GRAMMY winners for 1993 include Toni Braxton and Dr. Dre. The soundtrack to the movie Boomerang produced “Another Sad Love Song” winning Best R&B Performance, Female for Braxton, who also won Best New Artist. The ultimate cruising anthem “Let Me Ride” from The Chronic gave Dr. Dre his first GRAMMY win for Best Rap Solo Performance. Toni Braxton has won a total of seven GRAMMY Awards to date and Dr. Dre has won six. https://twitter.com/WorldCafe/status/1062112946627715073 Here’s What Made 1993 A Special Year In Music flashback-1993-good-year-music-or-best-year-music Facebook Twitter Email Flashback To 1993: A Good Year In Music Or The Best Year In Music?

X Florian MartinLloyd Gites stands in front of paintings by Cuban artists Daussatt, left, and Dominguez. About one third of the pieces in his African art gallery currently come from Cuba.Lloyd Gite’s gallery in the Third Ward features art from Africa and the African diaspora.Since October 2015, his collection has included a large number of paintings from Cuba. That year, the Obama administration loosened restrictions on trade and travel within the Communist island state.Gite went with a travel group for “educational activities.”But it’s still not easy to get the art over here.“Because of the embargo, you cannot ship things from Havana to Houston,” he said.On his first trip, Gite took about 70 pieces of art back with him on the plane to Miami. From there, he mailed them to Houston. The second time, he had to haul it the whole way, because he arrived on a Sunday when FedEx wasn’t open.“So that’s the difficulty,” Gite said. “I’m looking forward to the day when I can simply go in there, buy art, send it through FedEx, DHL to Houston and not worry about it.”Since then, some airlines have begun offering direct flights from Houston to Havana, but Gite will still have to go with a group to qualify for one of the 12 categories authorized to travel to Cuba.He is now worried that President Donald Trump will reinstate travel restrictions, which Gite said would mostly hurt Americans.“We’re the ones who are not exposed to the culture, the fashion, the art, the wonderful food,” he said.Gite considers himself an ambassador for Cuban art in Houston.
