The meeting of man and God must always mean a penetration and entry of the Divine into the human and a self immergence of man in the Divinity.
But that immergence is not in the nature of an annihilation. Extinction is not the fulfilment of all this search and passion, suffering and rapture. The game would never have been begun if that were to be its ending.

Africa House in Making

The Auroville Council and the Working Committee inform us on daily operations at Entry Service

Water Group says : ” So saving water is critical. It is NOT the time to plant anything new. It is NOT the time to refill your massive swimming pools. It is NOT the time to water the roads, as much as it helps to keep the dust down. It is NOT the time to water your lawns, or keep your ornamental gardens lush and green. It IS the time to prioritize your water usage, and have honest conversations within your communities about water usage in communal spaces. It IS the time to save water in every possible way, and to encourage respectfully others in the community to do the same.”

Water Crisis

We know the Divine and become the Divine, because we are That already in our secret nature.

Owiny Sigoma Band

Owiny Sigoma Band’s debut was released two years ago after a group of London-based musicians traveled to Kenya to collaborate with nyatiti master musician and music teacher Joseph Nyamungu and Luo drummer Charles Owoko. The results on the self-titled disc seemed to reflect on the visitors quickly learning from their hosts, as they produced a set of songs largely based on traditional Luo folk, comprised of irregular rhythms, with poppier songs like ‘Wires’ and ‘Here On The Line’ representing the English musicians influence. Their second album, Power Punch!!!, sees the dynamic reversed, as the duo from Nairobi make the trip to London to this time learn a thing or two from the quartet of Jesse Hackett (vocals, keys), Louis Hackett (bass), Sam Lewis (guitar) and Tom Skinner (drums). The latter introduced some new musical styles to their guests, including shangaan electro, electronic and techno, inspiring the group to develop their sound exploring exciting new sonic territory.

Owiny Sigoma Band’s Nyanza is available through Gilles Peterson‘s label Brownswood Recordings.
