Women in Reggae

Today’s musical edition is about women in reggae. It is a glimpse into a moment in history, from 70ies and up, in which we celebrated the outstanding female voices of reggae music. Jamaica is, and probably will always be, a patriarchal society, but at this point in time the rise of women within the genre had become a notable, positive development.
Probably the best-known among Jamaica’s female singers is the trio called the I Three, who sang harmony vocals for Bob Marley and the Wailers from 1974 until Marley’s death in 1981. Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt and Rita Marley all had successful professional solo careers before joining up with the Wailers.
Apart from those three well known women , we feature many more from Susan Carol, Annette Brissett, Hortense Ellis…., and many more.

Libanga

Music industry, as we know it all over the world is falling apart. But Congo is an exception . Congolese musicians has invented “libanga”. They’re not relying on all the complex laws and technology, digital rights management . Use of “libanga” or shout out to rich and powerful people in their songs. For example Eternellement – This simple, poetic love song, “Eternellement,” crooned by megastars Fally Ipupa and Koffi Olomide, is really an open appeal for sponsorship that’s specifically addressed to a man named Laurent Lorenzo.
If the number becomes a hit, Lorenzo — and other elite members of Congolese society — will feel compelled to reciprocate with gifts of money, cars and even houses. So, in one of the poorest countries in the world, the use of “libanga” helps popular musicians to stay afloat.
Following musical podcast features Congolese Rumba pieces, made in “libanga” style.

Enminential Rythmn of Ancestors

In the realm of so called “new age” music Eric Levi with musical project +eRa+ definitely stands out, and fall into many categories from medieval, ethno .. to world music.
Era (styled as +eRa+, acronym for “Enminential Rythmn of the Ancestors”) is a New-Age music project by French composer Eric Levi. They use lyrics (by Guy Protheroe) which, although similar to Greek or Latin, are, in fact, deliberately devoid of any exact meaning. Musically, the project blends Gregorian chants with modern elements and genres, especially rock, pop and electronic music.

Synthesis of Yoga

This reading is from Part TwoThe Knowledge of Integral Knowledge, completing Chapter 1, The Object of Knowledge, pages 293 – 299.

Sri Aurobindo reminds the reader again: everywhere and in all conditions is One, however hidden to us, the Supreme is here in the world. The object of a Yoga of spiritual knowledge is this eternal Oneness, eternal Reality, this Self, this Brahman, this Transcendent, dwelling over all and, in all . . . manifest (yet concealed) in the individual, manifest (yet disguised) in the universe. This is the integral knowledge.
