Know Your Rhythm

It all begins with a conversation of improvised rhythms between Arnab and Gino at Sangam Hall, Savitri Bhavan.
Arnab B. Chowdhury shares a few thoughts, rhythms and motifs from his training programme - 'Know Your Rhythm' that helps participants discover musicality, their own sense of rhythm.
Through immersive exercises in a spirit of self-culture and joy, ‘Know Your Rhythm’ creates conditions for participants to experienc Aha! Moments both as individual and a member of the collective. He believes that these Aha! Moments are like opening windows towards Transformation.
In Auroville, 'Know Your Rhythm' (KYR) has been presented to a variety of audiences such as teachers from different schools of Auroville, Tamil Nadu government officials at Sustainable Livelihood Institute, Dakshina Chanting Group, young participants of Swadharma semester programme.
KYR was held as a Pre-Congress Seminar for therapists and medical practitioners at the 14th World Congress for Music Therapy at Vienna (2014) and presented as a research project at the 4th Conference of International Association for Music and Medicine at Beijing (2016).
Arnab is a composer-musician-trainer and a third generation from a family of Indian Classical musicians based out of Sri Aurobindo Ashram. He grew up and studied at the Ashram School and his programme is inspired by Integral Education and the paradigms of Music.

Motown, Soul & Oldies

"Motown" is both a style of music and a label; in fact, no other label (with the possible exception of its grittier '60s brother, Stax) is more identified with the sound it produced. Although Motown started as a straight R&B label and later moved into genres from Psychedelic Soul to New Jack Swing, "The Motown Sound" as it's usually understood by fans and historians.Most Motown songs were written on piano and based on a piano riff, although there were occasional ballads that broke the mold (the Temptations' "My Girl").

Secret Agent

Today's musical podcast features Tony Allen's album Secret Agent.
Tony Oladipo Allen (born 1940 in Lagos, Nigeria) is a Nigerian drummer, composer and songwriter who currently lives and works in Paris. His career and life story have been documented in his 2013 autobiography Tony Allen: Master Drummer of Afrobeat, co-written with author/musician Michael E. Veal, who previously wrote a comprehensive biography of Fela Kuti.
As drummer and musical director of Fela Anikulapo Kuti's band Africa 70 from 1968 to 1979, Allen was one of the primary co-founders of the genre of Afrobeat music. Fela once stated that, "without Tony Allen, there would be no Afrobeat."[2] He has also been described by Brian Eno as "perhaps the greatest drummer who has ever lived."

Garba Dance


Garba is a form of dance which originated in the state of Gujarat in India. The name is derived from the Sanskrit term Garbha ("womb") and Deep ("a small earthenware lamp"). Many traditional garbas are performed around a centrally lit lamp or a picture or statue of the Goddess Shakti. The circular and spiral figures of garba have similarities to other spiritual dances, such as those of Sufi culture (garba being an earlier tradition). Traditionally, it is performed during the nine-day Hindu festival Navaratri Nava = 9,nights). Either the lamp (the Garba Deep) or an image of the Goddess, Durga (also called Amba) is placed in the middle of concentric rings as an object of veneration.
