Music of Love for Mother's Land

The Auroville Sisters performed at the Unity Pavillion on the 12th February 2017 to help raise funds for Auroville's land aquisition programme.

Sound Bath by Svaram

Svaram is a Musical Instrument Research and Development center that makes innovative musical instruments. The center 's creative director is Aurelio (http://www.auroville.org/contents/4021) who believes in the ability of music to transcend spiritual barriers. According to the people at Svaram, the lowest use of music is merely aesthetic. The second is intellectual and the third and highest is spiritual. The use of music to heal is an ancient art, and it has been revived here in Auroville. Using many of their fabulous instruments, the sound bath was literally a flow of harmony and music through the body. Aurelio started by guiding the audience into a state of relaxation. The 50- 60 attendees, some meditating, some laying down to relax, all witnessed the language of pure sound. The performance was not guided by a temporal harmony, beats and measures, but rather by the sound of sound itself. The whole body was a large ear. To know more, give them a listen. Live, if possible. You can get more information on Svaram, Auroville from the link below. http://www.svaram.org

50 years and Spouge

Following the establishment of the first English settlement at Holetown in 1627, Barbados remained a British colony for more than 300 years. Its independence on November 30, 1966 was marked by the raising of the Barbados national flag and playing the new national anthem for the first time

In Bajan culture music plays a vital role. From those early days of independence we picked up spouge as it is developed, melted in its own style, and you will hear in the first half of this musical edition. Slowly spouge will transcend into calypso and soca with songs from Crop Over of different years...

Spouge as a style of Barbadian popular music was created by Jackie Opel in the 1960s. It is primarily a fusion of Jamaican ska with Trinidadian calypso, but is also influenced by a wide variety of musics from the British Isles and United States, include sea shanties, hymns and spirituals. Spouge instrumentation originally consisted of cowbell, bass guitar, trap set and various other electronic and percussion instruments, later augmented by saxophone, trombone and trumpets.[1] Of these, the cowbell and the guitar are widely seen as the most integral part of the instrumentation, and are said to reflect the African origin of much of Barbadian music.
