Ragas and Veena with Bruno

Full moon it was last Saturday at the Tibetan Pavillion. We experienced ragas sang and played on the Carnatic Veena, a meditative full moon evening with Bruno. Together we dug into the very first principles of Carnatic Music and sang to sense the tonality of swaras on body and mind.
Afterwards Bruno offered us a choice of ragas, krithis and varnams gently plucked on the Saraswathy Veena where Goddess Sarawathy stands for the arts, learning and wisdom.
Thanks for a cheerful full moon evening.

Hartmunt von Lieres piano concert

CRIPA  hall in Kalabhumi`s art centre lends itself perfectly to  improvisation on the grand piano. Mr. Hartmunt von Lieres filled the venue with colorful (over)tones still resonating in my ears.
A variety of musical scales got embellished with melodic patterns and rhythmical movements with a touch of Spanish flavor and a jazzy groove in order to create a harmonic structure. The music says it all. Just relax, listen and enjoy!

Celebration of Light at Deepam

On Saturday the 2nd of December at The Deepam school for children with special needs they lit more than a thousand oil lamps around the premises and gave a beautiful performance of songs, yoga and dance for the Karthigai Deepam celebration, which originates from the legend of Lord Shiva who had transformed himself into a divine flame.
Deepam means “light” – which is the name chosen for the school because they want to bring light into the lives of children who are disadvantaged.

Kalabhumi Goes Live, Nov 2017

Last Saturday, the November edition “KALABHUMI goes Live” started off with Devij singing traditional Hindi songs followed by the brand new international Jazz 4-tet.

Devij, supported by guitar and percussion brought an intimate set approved by a young and enthusiastic crowd. He jumped from traditional Hindi songs to modern hits in an easy going and relaxed vibe.
The Jazz 4-tet went thru lesser known jazz standards in a dynamic bossa nova and swing jazz style, the first called the ‘new wave’ of the 60’s in Brazil, and the latter developed in the 30’s in the US.
Smuel Segev from Israel spiced up the evening with his energetic soprano saxophone playing. Yuri Angelo from Holland handled the keys like a real fusion pro
On bass, Rolf Bosbach from Germany provided the performance with a solid underlying melodic structure and the drums were kicked alive by Ray Barelli from Belgium.
Surprisingly Vera and Shakti joined in and each sang a ballad to conclude this amazing jazz evening.
Keep on swinging Kalabhumi!

What is the Integral Yoga ?
There are many Yogas, many spiritual disciplines, paths towards liberation and perfection, Godward ways of the spirit. Each has its separate aim, its peculiar approach to the One Reality, its separate method, its helpful philosophy and its practice. The integral Yoga takes up all of them in their essence and tries to arrive at a unification (in essence, not in detail) of all these aims, methods, approaches; it stands for an all-embracing philosophy and practice.
Sri Aurobindo
