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.

Cabaret Full Moon

For the third time in this year we had a chance to admire many Auroville performing artists at Kalabhumi in the Open Stage Cabaret. Some acts were new, some old, some funny, some touched serious issues of life, some were about dance, some were theater…but all were held together by the ever engaging spirit of Jesse, the Master of Ceremonies who brought our laughter almost to the tears. As with everything else in Auroville, the Open stage Cabaret, organized and prepared by the Auroville Performing Artist group, is evolving and progressing. Each Cabaret is in better shape, and you can always feel it is done with a lot of enthusiasm and heart.
