ILHAAM is a fruit of an improbable encounter of an Israeli & Franco Lebanese. This meeting happened on a travelling circus for peace between Israel & Palestine. They combine world/pop/soul from their own kind with quantum electronics. The distinctive voice of Nina & the musicality of her partner Omri (multi-instrumentalist, beatbox, voice) create a sound that inspire us to dream & revolutionize our listening habits.

Another event for the “Remembering Veenapani Festival 2017”, “Rage & Beyond: Irawati’s Gandahari” under the writing and direction of Sanjukta Wagh, with Hitesh Dhutia on acoustic guitar.
Sanjurta Wagh says: Rage and Beyond is not just my response to the character of Gandhari as she appears in Iravati Karves Yugant, a text that was hailed as one of the first contemporary reinterpretations of the Mahabharata by a woman writer in the 1960s. When I enter this text in 2014, I am negotiating with the tremendous ebb and flow that inevitably happens when one tries to embody an archetype, a mythological character that is so deeply entrenched in the Indian cultural consciousness. It is at the same time my interaction with Irawati Karve as an empowered woman, deeply rooted in Marathi tradition, someone who was known for her scholarship and yet sought to have a conversation with the world through her non-academic writing. In this rewriting and embodiment of Irawatis Gandhari, I am trying to keep this complexity alive without the need to either essentialise or glorify either author or her character, by not trying to fill in the blanks.”
In today’s news we are featuring Ashiqa and Aravind inviting us to a month long festival Remembering Veenapani with performances every weekend. This weekend we can see dance performance Accross not Over, The Sage for the Ages and Rage & Beyond .

Animal man is the obscure starting-point, the present natural man, varied and tangled, the mid-road, but supernatural man the luminous and transcendent goal of our human journey.
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. 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.
