Best 5 modern Songs with a message within.

Experience which transliterates thru a powerful song is something really valuable. Not always a song tells about a true experience or a flow of feelings. WHAT is good in a song that makes it empowering?? Few points:

  • It has a great lyric, poetic. Not just words but words with a meaning and with some experience in them, as the singer would connect you to his/her own life happenings and understanding sharing a message emitting something positive to the listener.
  • Energizing at musical level making feel joy and desire to embrace life in all its aspects; at this point it can be slower and deep striking innermost silent chords giving a still and peaceful mood or strong and up beat for uplifting and dancing thru the notes.

To master Italian language is a blessing

She doesnt master it but makes a great musical rendition:

Mi abbandono alla musica affondando profondamante in onde dei suoni Il cuore fino di vetro toccando il suono adesso domincia a svegliarsi il sentimento che esce dal fondo del mio core i suoni che vibrano nell’ aria tesa da dove da dove viene? apriamo il cuore un suono caduto nel mondo in blu un dono dal cielo ascoltiamo bene apriamo il cuore

open the heart, a falling sound in the blu world,  a gift from the sky, lets listen carefully lets open the heart

I was sinking into waves of sound, music, eyes to surrender.
Now touch the heart sounds thin glass, which wake up.
Feel from the heart
Tension trembling sound in air
Are they coming from?
Let your mind!
Listen closely to a gift from heaven!
Let your mind! (from youtube comments)

Five long quotes from five Sting’s lyrics

1. He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn’t play for the money he wins
He doesn’t play for the respect
He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

2. When there’s no information
And the compass turns to
nowhere that you know well
Let your soul be your pilot
Let your soul guide you
He’ll guide you well

3.This ain’t no time for doubting your power
This ain’t no time for hiding your care
You’re climbing down from an ivory tower
You’ve got a stake in the world we ought to share

4. In the quiet time of evening
When the stars assume their patterns
And the day has made his journey
And we wondered just what happened
To the life we knew before the world changed
When not a thing I held was true

5. When the world is running down
You make the best of what’s still around

Musical tag: (Latina) fast, furious, danceable songs

This is just what i as needing these days to wake up my senses in super steaming and superhot Hong Kong. Sometimes i’ve got the impression to be melting together with smoke of the fried vegetables in the street stalls downstairs or together with the black asphalt my bus runs on up and down every morning nd evening. I am becoming the sticker of the city, i closely follow her mood, atmosphere and environment, i am totally ONE with the nature yea. This tag wakes me up and makes me dance, which i also totally love. i love screaming and dancing at the same time, to do this you need exactly a fast, furious, danceable song. I love you Destination Infinity, you make my day and make my blog too, because thanks to your musical tags traffic always increases nicely. i shall totaly award you the friendship blogger for this. danceAward It’s here for you, pls ~pick it up ~ post it in your blog, ~pass it to 5 more people to join the dance! ~link them and leave a message for them~link this blog also

Many latino songs are danceable and furious just like our, of latino people,  mood and character. We are mostly made of fire, although in my case there is a moderate component given by my zodiacal sign which is in the water element. Hope you all enjoy the songs!

I was a disco girl for many years and i guess still am although the platforms have switched from disco club to social gatherings in different places. few months ago for my hub birthday we made it up as a fundraising event and danced mostly bhangra songs no stop in a cool restaurant. Enjoy the songs!

Three Fun songs

Again moving here posts from my old blogspot blog : (3 songs written in 2006)

140ok.ai

1. A thought supreme

ooh Mother kundalini of my heart
i am waiting for the sparkling of your love
ooh mother kundalini of my heart
i am waiting for the thoughtless in my mind

2. Nothing can give you joy & happiness out of the pure silence.

Today is the day we want to spread our wings
 Open our eyes
 And make out vibrating souls flying around the World
Knocking to your heart.
It has been years thet we have realized where joy and happiness live:
NOTHING CAN GIVE YOU JOY & HAPPINESS OUT OF PURE SILENCE
So we decided to go out for telling people
To not stop feeling their vbrations
And spread new visions.
Wherever you are
You are realizing that
Nothing can give you joy & happiness out of pure silence
We love you man
Let us knock at your heart
let us feel your vibrations
Don’t you feel we are one Body
one Mind
one unique Flower
We love you man
Wherever you are
Wherever you look and walk.
Look at our face
We are knocking at yo
We are saying that
Nothing can give you joy & happiness out of the pure silence.
3. They will speak for you
Open your hands
Your hands will speak for you
Like oysters your hands
Pearls of vibration in them
Feel the flow coming out of your hands
Like flowers your hands
Fragrant petals of vibrations in them
Love is coming out from them
Open your hands
They will speak for you

Be shining as pearls and flowers in the space
spreading yourself in the space can free the lace
look at your face, feel your hand on your face
dance your hands in the space
…they will speak for you.

Tao couplets

Usually they stop to the first couplet but here’s the rest, even more beautiful and enduring!

1. It is wisdom to know others;

It is enlightenment to know one’s self.

2. the conqueror of men is powerful;

the master of himself is strong.

3. it is wealth to be content;

it is willful to force one’s way on others.

4. endurance is to keep one’s place;

long life it is to die and not perish.

Accompanied by fabulous sitar from Bangladesh…enjoy it ~

What do you think about this Seattle band?

Manooghi Hi: they sing in Hindi and English. I even found a Dam Mast Kalendar version in their repertoire. Just discovered thru a blogger friend in Seattle.

The press recensions thru the myspace:

“…Suffice to say you’ve never heard anything like Manooghi Hi. Maybe because, to the best of my knowledge, their sound has never before been attempted. To oversimplify, it’s like this: panoramic rock ‘n’ roll fronted by a petite, beautiful Indian woman scat singing in Hindi. The cross-pollination is dizzying — East and West, ancient and modern, pop and classical, ecstatic spiritualism and headbanging rock. The potential for Rusted Root-style world groove dilettantism arises and is crushed by the frontwoman’s chops.”
-Jonathan Zwickel, the Seattle Times –March 2009

“…The album hums with an intense hunger to make music that does not skirt on top of differences but dives so deep that the molten core of unity starts to glow on the horizon. Its like those Sufi dancers who start out slowly spinning in a space with well-defined compass points until they don’t know where they are anymore, and its all a yearning blur.”
-Erik Davis, techgnosis.com -March 2009

“Spectacular Indian-born vocalist Mehnaz was a pop phenomenon in her native country before [visiting] Seattle. Her six-piece outfit Manooghi Hi blend arena-sized Anglo-American rock with Indian wind, string and percussion instruments and Mehnaz’s impassioned trilingual utterances.
Their sound has plenty of ramalamasala.”
-Dave Segal, the Stranger –August 2008

Presence of magic Indian notes in Italian soil

My brothers from Italy published here the recordering of a raga freshly composed by a santoor musician from India, with his son. Here’s the explanation of the raga given by himself on stage few days ago. It is not really a surprise that artists of such a calibre are now exhibiting in this land in the middle of the Mediterraneo. Italy is a great receptacle of musical understanding and a fast absorber of beautiful divine melodies.

Following the rules of the nature

The Concierto de Aranjuez was described by its same own author as capturing “the fragrance of magnolias, the singing of birds and the gushing of fountains” at Royal Palace of Aranjuez which is the place in Spain to which it has been inspired. it was premiered by Orchestra Filarmonica de Barcelona in 1940. In the below more contemporary version by violin it is executed by the Japanise artist Ikuko Kawai. You will surely notice her gestures, the way she is flowing with the notes and the passionate expressions on her face as she was one with the violin and the Latino melody itself (which was actually created for guitar by Rodriguo).

It is one of the plenty wonderful examples of integration of goodness of cultures  you can also find wherever you live; there are many people who are so lucky to have lived in different places for enough time to absorb its characteristics at various levels, other have also absorbed it thru their parents traits which can be from diverse cultures. They naturally live an inside (r)evolution of their personality in a lifetime so enriching and unique that emits a beautiful fragrance in whatever interest they express. That is what the performance below is talking about. 

A performance about self discovery

No surprise anymore about the fact that everybody now is moving towards the searching of the self. After thousands and thousand of years that hundreds and hundreds, if not millions or billions (how many hidden people we do not and we will never know?), of people covered this topic in all kinds of fields, now it would seem sometimes even redundant to face the topic. But here we are again, we are going to offer a beautiful fusion to the audience in Hong Kong on the 20th and 21st of this month, with the arrival of Springtime!

It is possible that until now no other artcompany thought to work on this unique kind of blend in town where indian live music, Tagore poetry, bharatnatyam steps and contemporary dance will fuse themelves on stage for an hour time.

If you live in Hong Kong try not to miss it, it’s going to be quite a mind blowing event.jouney1

Scattered pills reported from backstage directly from a dancer participant: 

a) on a subtle point of view it shows an interesting form of collaboration between Kazakistan and Vancouver. It also includes artists from India, Pakistan, Italy, England, Hong Kong. Moreover, women from different cultural backgrounds and experiences have the ability to work out beauty and understanding more easily.

b) it is really magical to notice how human beings involved in artistic creations about self discovery realize having an attention double times focused towards witnessing the blossoming and the refining of their own character and personality.

c) people in general here in town are becoming artistically more sensitive and mature, hence showing their desire to treat the audience with fascinating ideas and interesting designs.

d) nirmal yoga, spending time in sahaja yoga dimension, is becoming truly essential for that performer who want to enjoy the development of his efforts and perform at good vibrant levels. this yoga will give the performer the adeguate skills and strategy to avoid stressful routine and unuseful thoughts  which could lower the capacity to perceive pure joy during the all process of reharsing and dancing.

“Dancing is a very good way of clearing out your pressures because, in the dance, you go into thoughtless awareness and also into the joy. Then the joy is so fulfilling that the joy of the spirit is much more than the joy of any world comforts or also of physical comforts. Its gives you physical comfort, it gives you mental comfort it gives you also the spiritual comfort.”

           [H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi]

Just like a heart beat

How is your heart beat? Do you check on it? Not medically but for real. i found out that my heart beat is regular and especially during two moments of the day/week it goes towards the extreme without even touching them.  During sitting time of meditation it slows down a lot, during a dance performance it does increase.

Traditional Chinese doctors suggest not to take to any hyper dynamic activity after 50 years of age. When we get old we should keep our heart beat on the same regular tune as much as possible. Nowaday there is a big trend to go jogging, running ~ there are big financial companies here in town which promote marathons to push up the heart beat of their employees and throw them in stressful conditions with the pretest of charity events or enhancing team spirit. But a completely conscious person will not listen to them and have great care of his heart beat.
