Myanmar Music & Military Regime
The Myanmar Army Regime's "official music" is very well known as such. Today, however, there has been an increase in the appeal of West European folk songs, which should have spread throughout Burma since the 1930'. These are some important characteristics of Myanmar in certain eras. - Despite the government's interventions, Burma's musical life was still strongly affected by the West.
It' s customary during this time to identify easy westerly tracks that have been render in Burmese and some popular tracks that were similar to the Asiatic one. There was also classic singing under the English crew. - popular in the 70s: That kind of metal was widespread throughout the whole nation in the 70s.
Nevertheless, there were a large number of performers who were producing records in their own studio and introducing their own audio product to stores. - After 1970: In this time there was a great change in musicality, as a great effort was made to preserve the cultural tradition.
Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi: the smiley face of the Myanmar army regimes
The Nobel Peace Prize laureate Suu Kyi, now de facto Myanmar's dean, has now been disgraced. They vehemently denounced their omission to oppose Myanmar's genocidal attack on the Rohingya. Tutu said in September: "If the cost of your rise to the highest post in Myanmar is your silences, the cost is certainly too high.
During the first weekend of September, the attack expelled almost 380,000 Rohingya from their houses in Myanmar's west Rakhine state and forced them to seek refuge in neighboring Bangladesh. Aung San Suu Kyi has distracted the critique from the armed forces and blamed "terrorists" for "a massive mountain of misinformation". Suu Kyi made a television speech on 19 September praising Myanmar's policemen and armies for their "great courage" and claiming that they would bring "peace, justice and development" to Rakhine.
Aung San Suu Kyi even refused to use the name Rohingya to describe the prosecuted Myanmar Moslem minorities, who have been refused Myanmar nationality in 1982. United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has described the attack as "ethnic cleansing" and urged Myanmar's army to give relief organizations entry to Rakhine. A number of Heads of State and Government in the West have supported this call, but have not ceased to sell weapons to the government or imposed trading penalties.
Despite the one-sidedness of the dispute, Australia's Secretary of State Julie Bishop has demanded a truce in Rakhine. "A cease-fire, an end to violent repression and the Rohingyas returning to Rakhine state," she said to the ABC's AM programme. In Myanmar, the India administration, which is vying with China for power, is following a similar line.
Mr Modi said he shares the "Myanmar government's concern about the extreme force in Rakhine state and the force against the police and the impact on peacekeeping life". Suu Kyi, who was trained in Oxford, is offering the heads of West African financial states a kind face: Myanmar's army junt.
No wonder Myanmar's junta has undergone a "democratic" transformation in recent years, taking Suu Kyi's NLD out of the coldness. Aung San, a Communist who became a member of the nation and worked with the Myanmar occupying Japan during the Second World War before changing sides to monitor the country's move towards sovereignty with the British, is the son of Suu Kyi.
Myanmar's armed forces have been dominating the country's economic system since General Ne Win, formerly a trusted confidante of Aung San, took over in 1962 in a 1962 alliance. Ne Win nationalized the entire country, trade and manufacturing with the help of socialistic idiom and created a unilateral state. It was not masses who saw its command system as welfareism, but "socialism" for soldiers' officials, whose plundering of the riches of natural resources is continuing.
Formerly the world's biggest exporters of raw materials for the production of raw materials, Myanmar hardly had enough to support its own people. It was in intimate touch with several pensioned Armenian officials disappointed by the Ne Win dictatorial state. Suu Kyi was placed under home detention by the AMG.
During her years in prison, Suu Kyi did little for the repressed minority communities in Myanmar, said Maung Zarni, an exile democratic campaigner. At the beginning of the 90s, the army regimes began liberalizing the economies to encourage attracting overseas investments. This rate of transformation was not quick enough for those West German government that had in mind the country's huge reserves of nature, which included such things as salt, honey, wood, jewels, olive groves and more.
In 1990, when the army did not hand over control to the National Liberation Front, the US and other West European leaders imposed penalties on the state. Myanmar's general once again violently repressed a people' s revolt, the so-called Saffron Revolution, in 2007. One year later, Cyclone Nargis - Myanmar's most devastating catastrophe in the last few years - exacerbated the regime's misery.
The following year they adopted a new treaty to appease the criticisms of the West. It authorizes the Supreme Head of the Armed Forces, however, to nominate and supervise all members of the cabinets responsible for the departments of the state secretariat, comprising defense, internal and frontier issues. One fourth of all parliament houses are assigned to the army.
Suu Kyi won a Myanmar parliamentary chair in a by-election in 2012, the White House welcomed this as "an important milestone in Burma's transition to democracy". But in 2015, the NLD won the country's elections in a land slide, gaining 80 per cent of the votes and a large parliamentary consensus, making Suu Kyi the de facto leader of the state.
Whilst the established mass media welcomed Suu Kyi's ascent as the blossoming of democracies, in fact the army continues to be responsible, as the recent Rakhine attack shows. The long histories of Myanmar's 135 minority Myanmar tribes, which make up 30 per cent of the country's 51 million inhabitants, have systematically suppressed the war.
Unimpeded plundering of the nation's physical assets under the military has suppressed many minority groups and resulted in an uprising. The Myanmar officers' class has seen the smuggling of men, woman and child into neighboring Southeast Asia to engage in sexually abused labor, housework and slave labor.
"Maung Zarni says, "Rakhine is full of nature reserves, especially in the predominantly Rohingya region just off the state. Myanmar's army used last year's attack by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) on Burma's frontier guards to launch a drive for anxiety and Islamophobia among the nation's Buddhist minority.
Once again, the Rakhine disaster shows the cynicism of the heads of the UN and empire in their use of the term'human rights'. As long as an icone of neo-liberalism will be the smiley face of Myanmar's violent army regimes, which keeps the doors open to overseas investments, it is essential for Myanmar businesses for the West in diplomacy and enterprise.
