Songs Thorugh Time for Land

Within accompanying or fundraising events of exhibition Art for Land and Unity Pavilion (exhibition is on display until 15th of February) we had a chance to hear last night Songs Thorugh Time, singing for land – a musical offering presented by Carla and Paula.
We have heard amazing voices of Carla and Paula from opera airias , rock and jazz pieces, accompanied by Jan, Nick, Kees, and Eric.

More than 70 artists from Auroville, the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, India, and AVI centers from around the world have again joined together for “Art for Land” – all offering their creations to raise funds for completing Auroville’s Master Plan land base. Works include paintings, ceramics, photographs, glasswork, jewelry, collages, and sculpture. Some art works created by Ashram artists were blessed by the Mother.
All
donations go exclusively for purchasing Auroville’s missing Master Plan land
You can come to the Unity Pavilion, make a land donation, and receive an artwork as a gift. You can also view the collection on our online gallery and reserve an artwork via our website at
artforland.auroville.org
Donations can be made in cash at Unity Pavilion, or by check and bank transfer via Auroville Unity Fund to “Art For Land”, or via the Auroville Donation Gateway to the “Acres for Auroville land campaign. Tax
exemptions are possible for land donors in India. Shipping of works from Auroville is managed by donors at their own expense.
IN PARALLEL: Several works are available as
postcards, along with other items, complemented by a parallel fundraising
sale of donated rare photographs of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. Proceeds go exclusively for purchasing Auroville’s missing Master Plan land.
Aurovilians and friends have expressed their solidarity by creating associated
events and activities as land
fundraisers at the Unity Pavilion.

The Legend of the Flute Player

“A long time ago in the Valley of the Great Mountains, there was a small town where lived all the greatest musicians in the land..
From anywhere in the valley, music could be heard day and night as all the musicians played their instruments so that they might be known as the best.
In this town there lived a young boy named Avvaiyar whose only wish was to play beautiful music for everyone. But Avvaiyar did not have an instrument to play ….”

Noel Parent’s book The Legend of the Flute Player, dramatized for the radio by Marion .

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.

Sri Aurobindo , Thoughts and Glimpses.

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.
