New Look of the Studio by Shipra

Gentle, yet energetic Shipra Raman has joined us as a volunteer, not as a content producer or journalist but as an architect. Hailing from Lucknow, and currently residing in New Delhi, in close proximity of Sri Aurobindo ashram, Shipra was looking for opportunity to come to Auroville, and experience it on her own skin, and contribute with her skills.
For us – AurovilleRadio she designed a new, fresh, and more people (and sound), friendly environment of our recording studio in Town Hall.

Synthesis of Yoga

This reading is Chapter VI The Synthesis of the Disciplines of Knowledge in its entirety, pages 335 through 342.

“The central aim of Knowledge is the recovery of the Self, of our true self-existence, and this aim presupposes the admission that our present mode of being is not our true self-existence.”

“We conceive of ourselves falsely, we see ourselves as we are not ….. this falsity is the root of a general perversion, confusion and suffering ….. our personal life and our communal life ….. are founded on a falsity ….. although through all this error a growing truth continually seeks to express itself.”

” ….. our primary aim in knowledge ….. to realise our own supreme Self ….. the pressing need of the individual, to arrive at the truth of his own being, set right its disorders, confusions ….. so that our whole existence may find their right basis, may live in our highest self ….. and obey no other law than that which proceeds from our highest self ….. ”

Left Alone

An eclectic mix of contemporary or free jazz, featuring known names such as John Coltrane, Max Roach, Archie Sheep, Bud Powell, Clifford Brown

Djanfa Magni – African Scream

Like most modern music in French-speaking West African countries, the music of Benin and Togo was influenced by a few main musical currents: Cuban, Congolese and local traditional music, as well as Chanson Francaise. Additionally, the geographical location of Benin and Togo – sandwiched between Ghana and Nigeria – exposed Beninese and Togolese musicians to Highlife music.
The cultural and spiritual riches of traditional Beninese music had an immense impact on the sound of Benin’s modern music. Benin is the birth place of Vodun (or, as it is known in the West, Voodoo), and some of the rhythms used during traditional rituals – Sakpata, Sato, Agbadja, Tchenkoumé and many others – were fused to Soul and Latin music as early as the mid-1960s and later to Funk.
In the late 60s and early 70s rock and soul music started creeping into the region. In particular, the music of James Brown and Johnny Hallyday became immensely popular with university students. It was then that the music scene in Benin really started to take off.
