Happiness Is

Overtone singing – also known as overtone chanting, harmonic singing or throat singing – is a type of singing in which the singer manipulates the resonances (or formants) created as air travels from the lungs, past the vocal folds, and out of the lips to produce a melody.
Each note is like a rainbow of sound. When you shoot a light beam through a prism, you get a rainbow. You think of a rainbow of sounds when you sing one note. If you can use your throat as a prism, you can expose the rainbow – through positioning the throat in a certain physical way, which will reveal the harmonic series note by note
Tibetan Buddhist chanting is a subgenre of throat singing, mainly practiced by monks of Tibet,Most often the chants hold to the lower pitches possible in throat singing. Various ceremonies and prayers call for throat singing in Tibetan Buddhism, often with more than one monk chanting at a time.

A mix of tribal and tropical grooves from Dj Boochie

Hello, I am Nicolas (DJ Boochie) and I come from a state not much bigger than Auroville: The Republic of San Marino :) I currently live in Brussels (Belgium) working in music as an art director and promoter, as well as a DJ. I have recently started a new web radio called Kiosk Radio, streaming music live, every day, from a small wooden kiosk in Brussels’ central park. In the past few days in Auroville I have realized that the number 12 is important and recurrent in this project. I have therefore selected 12 tracks that have been particularly important for me over the last year. Expect a mix of tribal and tropical grooves, traveling from South Africa to Guadalupe, passing through Belgium and, of course, Italy.

Gitanjali by Damayanti Datta


Peaceful, meditative evening at Bhumika Hall, Bahart Nivas with Damayanti Datta offering to the Mother and Sri Aurobindo a Gitanjali or melange of poems, hymns and songs. Along with laureate poems of Tagore, we heard Sanskrit hymns from Rig Veda, and worldwide poets. Hymns, poems and songs are talking of the journey of human mind from darkness to the light.

Damayanti Datta, executive editor with India Toda magazine in Delhi, specialized in Rabindranath Tagore's music from Gitabitan, the premier-most music school in Calcutta.

Damayanti Datta was accompanied by
Gayatri Datta on harmonium
Manosh Bardhan on tabla
Surrendra Rout on keyboard

Event was organized by Arpanaa(Geeta, Creativtiy&Mona, Yantra) -arpanaa@auroville.org.in

Outstanding performance of fine 'hard bop fusion Jazz' at Cripa, Kalabumi.

The band was meant to play as a quartet, but after a recent terrible motorbike accident, in which the keyboard player Yurri badly injured his right hand, the band had to decide whether to cancel the concert or go ahead and play as a trio.
Luckily they decided to play because it was an excellent performance.
Tonight they had to play without an essential harmony instrument (the keyboard), and normally one would expect a trio - made up of a trumpet, a bass and a drum - to give a technically good but also heavy performance. Astonishingly the trio colored the music hall with creative, imaginative and unrestrained execution.
Soon after the concert I went to congratulate with the musicians and asked them a few simple questions.
