Geburtstag
Harold George Belafonte  01.03.1927


Er zählt nicht nur zu den bekanntesten, sondern auch zu den politisch und sozial stark engagierten farbigen Künstlern der USA. Er sieht seine Stimme als seine schlagkräftigste Waffe im Kampf gegen Unterdrückung und für Frieden und Toleranz. Der Sänger, der mit Martin Luther King jr. eng befreundet war und es mit Coretta King und dem Reverend Abernathy immer noch ist, gehört seit dem berühmten Marsch auf Selma/Alabama zur amerikanischen Bürgerrechtsbewegung.
Belafonte wurde im New Yorker Stadtteil Harlem geboren. Als er acht Jahre alt war, siedelten seine Eltern, eine englischsprechende Jamaikanerin und ein französischsprechender Arbeiter aus Martinique, nach Jamaika über, wo er den Großteil seiner Kindheit verbrachte. Hier kam er mit der westindischen Calypso-Musik, zu deren Verbreitung er später wesentlich beitrug, in Berührung. Schließlich wieder nach New York zurückgekehrt, verbrachte er drei Jahre bei der Us-Navy, versuchte sich als Schauspieler, Packer und Bote. Nach Schule und Militär widmete er sich ganz dem Theater. Bei einer seiner Rollen musste er singen und wurde entdeckt. Zusammen mit dem Gitarristen Millard Thomas begann er ein Repertoire zusammenzustellen, das vor allem alte und neue Volkslieder zum Inhalt hatte. Auftritte in den berühmten New Yorker Nachtclubs 'Royal Roost' und 'Village Vanguard' brachten ihm schließlich einen Plattenvertrag und einige sehr erfolgreiche Filmrollen ein, in "Bright Road", "Carmen Jones" und dem politisch sehr umstrittenen Film "Island In The Sun".
Zwischen den beiden Engagements in diesen Nachtclubs leistete er sich 1950 sogar den Luxus, einen Vertrag mit 'Capitol Records' platzen zu lassen, da ihm die damit verbundenen Kommerz-Songs nicht zusagten. Er bevorzugte das Folksong-Repertoire, das er sich mit Millard Thomas für den 'Village Vanguard' erarbeitet hatte. Nur kurze Zeit später wurde seine Kompromisslosigkeit belohnt: Hollywood winkte mit dem Film "Bright Road" und gab damit den Startschuss für eine Karriere, die bis dahin für Schwarze beispiellos war.
In der deutschen Hitparade landete er 1957 mit "Banana Boat Song" sofort auf Platz eins! In kürzester Zeit erreichte Belafonte absoluten Weltruhm. Seine Konzerte und Broadway-Gastspiele zählten zu den besonderen Höhepunkten jeder Saison. Harry Belafonte hat es seiner Kindheit in Jamaika zu verdanken, dass er als 'King Of The Calypso' in die Geschichte einging.
(aus der Serie 'Das Goldene Schlager-Archiv' 1950-1989 und dem Album 'Great Romantic Memories', ergänzt durch den Kommentar aus dem Sampleralbum 'Memories In Gold')
