Overtone Singing

On the 12th January 2018, Svaram Campus gave a presentation at the Tibetan Pavillion on the mathematics of harmonic science and the connections with nature. Then they gave a demonstration of overtone singing with some accompaniment, which is what we are sharing here. It was a beautiful vibration and they said that there will be a possibility of a workshop this coming week where we can learn this healing technique, overtone singing.

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 ….”

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.

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.
