water, in different forms, starting with a single drop, forming cascade in lotus pond, or a river stream; many droplets form a rain … and all leads into the ocean
Guayanas – a big chunk of the planet at the Northeastern tip of South America, and if we rarely hear about these places, it is mainly because very few people live there – Suriname with population of 500 000, and French Guyana only 200 000.
The people who live in the Guayanas are mix from all over the world, and consequently all this cultural deliciousness means that local music consumption is wildly diverse.
We are featuring some of the home grown stuff as well kaseko, kawinka, aleke and bigi pokoe, along with local reggae musicians….

Striking to most of the visitors of Auroville are constant chirping of birds and indigenous evergreen tropical dry forest or lots of trees …
Birds wake up in early morning hours before dawn, and perky conversations or monologues are going on all day long.
Each morning starts with another story of a day ahead.
Human ears selectively choose what to hear , but microphone hears everything. It does notice distant temple music, bikes and constant wind of the area.
The village of Gu?a has gained world fame owing to its Assembly of Trumpet Players, the largest trumpet event on the planet. The love of the people of Draga?evo for music, especially for the trumpet, began in the rule of Prince Milo Obrenovi?, who ordered the formation of the first military band in 1831. From then until now the trumpet has reigned here uninterrupted while woodwind instruments, in keeping with the customs, warm the soul of its population.

From Water Group Ing-Marie has visited us in the studio, and we talked on few different topics revolving around the ground necessity of our life – WATER.
Since we do live in a city with water sensitivity, how do we perceive it as a community?
Current Water Group started in 2015 (not the first, and most likely not the last) as an advisory body to TDC, consisting of members of different walks of life. They are trying to put together an integrated water management for the city. They are trying to raise the awareness on water sensitivity of the ground reality in our city. In whole this process they would like community to be deeply involved, they would like to increase the water “literacy”, they are trying to put up an interactive web page….
As one of the recent attempts to reach out to each member of the community is a call for photo contest with – What could depict the essence of Auroville Water? whereby any format or size …. are welcomed, and the author of winning photo will be fully credited for it. Deadline 15th of March.

Two things you must never forget: Sri Aurobindo’s compassion and the Mother’s love, and it is with these two things that you will go on fighting steadily, patiently, until the enemies are definitively routed and the Victory is won for ever. Courage outside, peace inside and a quiet unshakable trust in the Divine’s Grace. -The Mother19 May 1933
frequency of the week – ABUNDANCE
Everything we need in life on Earth has been created for us in abundance. We often have difficulty accepting this, because we are prone to think in terms of lack. We cling onto the idea of security because we are afraid of having nothing. Energy is everywhere and everlasting.
Do not restrict yourself by thinking too small, because with the proper intentions everything is possible. You just need to believe.
The frequency of Abundance shows you that you already have everything you need to realise your dreams, no matter how big your ambitions are.

The French movie director speaks about the making of her documentary Heritage Fight. It tells the story of the Australian Aboriginal tribe Goolarabooloo who fought against a company that intended to build the world’s largest gas plant on the land they have been living on and protecting over millenia. Through a tight knit community culture and the practice of dreaming as a collective the Goolarabooloo managed to defend their holy land against corporate interest and destruction. Heritage Fight will be screened on Saturday, January 28 at 5 pm at Cinema Paradiso. Eugenie Dumont, the French director of the movie, will be at the screening for a discussion afterwards.
The event was organized by the French Pavilion.
