transport[s] our hearts and minds to Mogadishu of the 1970s and 1980s, when the coastal capital glistened as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, when wine and cosmopolitanism flowed freely
This music was never made available for mass release. As a result, most of it has never been heard outside Somalia and the immediate region.
Something remarkable has taken place in the last few years: Somalia has reasserted itself.
Indeed, challenges still remainand they are grave. But we should not discount how far Somalia and Somali people have come from two decades of civil war, and current ongoing hardships.
The Somali diaspora in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and elsewhere in East Africa have used the digital tools their disposalnamely YouTube and blogsto upload their collections. This cultural assertion is a cornerstone of the Somali revival.
In 2015, Berlin-based researched and collector Nicolas Sheikholeslami nimbly scoured the Somali niches of the internet to compile Au Revoir Mogadishu Vol.1, a viral mixtape of Somali music from before the war.
Made speechless by the mixtapes other-worldly sounds, Ostinato Records and Sheikholeslami traveled to the Horn of Africa after catching word of an archive of over 10,000 cassettes and reels, painstakingly preserved through the war by intrepid radio operators and dedicated vanguards of Somali culture. What we discovered is difficult to articulate. But what the music revealed was an untold history of the Somali music belt, which stretches from Djibouti to Hargeisa, all the way down to Mogadishu. Somali culture transcends artificial borders and groupings.
For the last year, from Minnesota to Dubai, we have tracked down the musicians, songwriters, composers, former government bureaucrats, and quirky personalities that colored Somali music life.
A full-fledged compilation album of the best cuts we discovered in this archive is slated for release this year exclusively on Ostinato Records.
But because we could not wait to share what we have been reveling in, we have put together a little taste of one of the most hidden music cultures in the world. The sound quality of this recorded material also bear the scars of war, and you are hearing it in the same shape as we found it.
Professor Sehdev Kumar presented the second lecture titled “How Do We Human’s Communicate” in a series of four called “The Human Journey Across the Ages, Ecology, Culture and The Self”. The presentation gave some very interesting observations regarding social structure, language, and the huge leap of humanities evolution in the last two hundred years.

Frequency of the week | ECHO
Our soul is constantly working for us. She shows us the way and wants to inspire us. Often we dont listen, because the signals from the soul sometimes seem illogical. They dont fit within the boundaries of our thinking. This is what you experience when you feel something is going to happen, but you are not sure exactly what.
At a subconscious level you pick something up, something that you cannot explain within your head. That something feels like an echo. Its the reflection of what your soul transmits to give you information about where you are right now. Echoes can repeat frequently or not; it all depends on where you want to go. That is why its important to give your soul the right information. Tune into exactly what you want, what makes you happy and which people or situations will help you further. Just like a radio station, your soul will transmit the exact signal to you at the right moment just before you reach your next station.
The frequency of Echo gives you insight into which energy you transmit and when it will echo back to you.
Life in Senegal has a soundtrack, and the Senegalese sound unmistakably has a Latin vibe. By tracing the bloodlines of slavery, arching from Gorée Island off the coast of Senegal, to North America, South America and the Caribbean, it is possible to begin to understand the long history in the relationship between Senegalese and Cuban music. Where people go, culture follows and where there is culture, there is the song that carries the story of its people.
Music in Senegal, with its strong structure of Latin flavor, continues to evolve with new musicians joining the international circuit every year.
Despite the differences in cultures, the music should feel like home to you. Its the sadness, happiness, hopes and dreams that are a part of every human, a sense of longing and belonging that traveled throughout history and has become the sound of almost everything you hear on the radio and television. Orchestra Baobab is that sound directly from its source, a musical melting pot with the organic ingredients providing an undeniable flavor.

CIRHU started “Aurovillian Conversations”, a series of weekly reflections between students, volunteers, newcomers and interested people with Aurovillians and friends of Auroville with experience in specific fields of knowledge.
This week the Aurovillian pioneer “B” was invited to share his experiences and reflections on “The Sunlit Path”. He also very interestingly referred to the modern day spiritual classic “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle as being a guide for the Sunlit Path, and of course as well as the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, which have been B’s main source of inspiration.
Listen in to the many beautiful reflections which were shared during this conversation at Bhavishyate on the evening of the 16th March 2017.

An in depth questionnaire was formulated by Deepti and circulated to others who had been raised and educated in Auroville. This survey captures the voices of 81 Auroville youth over a span of 40 years of educational experiences.
Suryamayi then studied all of the feedback to bring it together in a cohesive manner for this presentation at Bhavisyate on the 14th March 2017.
