Traditonal Musical Instrument: Enchanting Mandolin, Part 2 of 2

00:21:27

Traditonal Musical Instrument: Enchanting Mandolin, Part 2 of 2

The exquisite sounds of the mandolin resonate back over a millennium, with recorded instances of mandolin music from the Medieval period (500-1400AD), up to the Renaissance (1400-1600), through the Baroque period (1600-1740AD) and onwards, to our current era. In Medieval times, the lute, a precursor to the modern mandolin, was widely played and appreciated. One branch of its evolution was the mandore, which arose in the Renaissance period and in turn, during the Baroque period, brought forth what we now call the mandolin.

Traditonal Musical Instrument: Enchanting Mandolin, Part 1 of 2

Although there are many variations, the mandolin generally has a hollow wooden body that includes a soundboard with a teardrop shape. Today, the mandolin plays a vital role in both orchestral and bluegrass music. As Mr. Nigel Woodhouse, a professional mandolinist who has played with many world-renowned orchestras and ensembles, explains: “… the mandolin has two of each string; they’re close pairs intended to be played as one string. It’s the doubling of the strings which gives the mandolin its particular resonance and sustain.”

Music Legend of Zimbabwe - Oliver Mtukudzi

00:17:06

Music Legend of Zimbabwe - Oliver Mtukudzi

One could say Oliver Mtukudzi’s mission was to teach through music. A natural philosopher, he used his lyrics, husky voice and his “Tuku” music, to gently guide his fellow African brothers and sisters on many social issues such as poverty, alcohol abuse and HIV/AIDS. His “Tuku” music was a mixture of southern African music traditions, including mbira, mbaqanga, jit and the traditional drumming styles of the Korekore. He influenced four generations in Zimbabwe with his music, lacing his songs with messages about morality, self-respect, happiness and challenges in life, hope and peace.

“Awakening Through Art” – The 2nd International Artist Day Celebration in Mongolia, Part 4 of 6

Beautiful. I enjoy all of them. I am very impressed, very impressed. I feel that through the other programs, previous program, and this program, I feel all the Mongolians, they are artistic, talented. And the Mongolia is blessed with so many artists like that. And regarding your (question), the younger generation and young leaders of Mongolia, the Chinese, they say, "First you cultivate yourself until perfection; and then you can take care of your family; and then, further, you can govern the country; and then you can pacify the world," meaning bringing peace to the whole world at large. So, this is the principle that any nation, anyone, any person who are responsible, especially in the government position, should adhere to, not just for the Chinese people, but it is the logical, regal regulation that we all have to adhere to.

#365 Unpacked – Interview with Photographer Antoine Repessé, Part 2 of 2

Ultimately, the solution is simple. Our parents or grandparents weren’t buying all these products, and they lived a much simpler life, which was in tune with seasons, with the environment. And that’s what we need to get back to if we want to try to preserve a little bit of our resources. Beyond the question of recycling, there is also the cost of energy that must be used. It is up to us as consumers to make choices that are responsible, by focusing on buying products that are more environmentally friendly. This message of conservation and the urgent need to act for the preservation of our planet has been echoed time and again by Supreme Master Ching Hai.

(Filippa Giordano) “So, I want to sing for You tonight some European amazing piece from ‘Carmen’ Bizet.” “Let me tell you the story about me and this amazing woman whom I had the privilege to meet. When I was in Cancún, 10 years ago, I was doing my show in Cancún, a public show, and I received an invitation. I didn’t know You at that time. But that day when I decided to become vegetarian was because of You when I met You. And it’s been hard in Mexico, let me tell you that. But I’m promoting, promoting, promoting everywhere that there are so many things we can do for the planet. And it’s not only about our health and the animals, it’s the whole thing that works.” “And tonight, I want to sing one of the songs with a vegetarian, historical legend virtually on a video.” “One more time before I say goodbye with the last song, thank you for all. If you know it, you just follow me with “Funiculì, Funiculà.”

Let's hear more from Ms. Williams-Crosby in her talk titled: “Making an Act of Conviction - With God[All] These Are Possible.” “Supreme Master Ching Hai. I want to thank You so much for allowing my family to be part of Your family. It’s a great blessing. And to be able to feel so much love and respect is a great gift. I stand here today because of an act of conviction that I made to God on September 19th, 1977. Well, I never looked back after that act of contrition. I’ve been a vegan for 40 years. I also now produce faith-based film shorts. And that’s my way of giving back by spreading God’s messages. So for me, I can’t get through a day unless I know I have connected. And Supreme Master Ching Hai, through all Your teachings, You have shown a great Light, inner pathway for people that have faith. Because then we get stronger and stronger.” “It's just like you want a strong body, you got to put a little resistance on those muscles to build. Our spirit needs a little resistance, a little trouble, so we can work through that. Because in times of great trouble, miracles do happen. Thank you.” “Wow! Very interesting.”

Traditional Instrument: Soulful Armenian Duduk

Melodies emanating from the duduk are able to touch our hearts in a profound way that makes us yearn for something bigger than ourselves, for that ultimate love we are always searching for, the true love that every soul desires. The Duduk is one of the oldest double reed instruments in the world. Capable of a wide range of melodies and with its powerful depth of sound, the duduk can create lively rhythmic dance tunes or expressive soul-wrenching songs. In 2005, UNESCO proclaimed the Armenian duduk and its music as a Masterpiece of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

Extraordinary Musical Masterworks of the 20th Century, Part 2 of 2

This is the tenth and final sonata of the visionary Russian composer and spiritual practitioner Alexander Scriabin. The sonata contains flashes of light which the composer describes as "powerful, radiating". One of the most wondrously gifted composers of the 20th century was the French composer Maurice Ravel. In his incredible piano suite Gaspard de la Nuit, Ravel stretches sonorities to raise a new world of tantalizing aural riches which cannot but propel consciousness into realms unchartered. Let's share the wonder of the first work in the suite, entitled "Ondine."

Friends of Eternity - A Special Gathering with Supreme Master Ching Hai and Cherished Artists, Part 22

And now, ladies and gentlemen, we have Kerry Walsh-a greatly accomplished soprano and flutist, who has graced our stage of many of our Association’s concerts over the years. Today, she will be sharing a few words and performing for us with her charming son, Michan. “And I’ll tell You a secret, Master, I have been dreaming for years of coming to see You in Formosa (Taiwan). So, I just feel this is absolutely spectacular. And what an evening and so much entertainment. And everything that everybody has been saying all night about how we have to just stop eating meat or the world is going to implode. And Master has spoken about how we’re blessed, and we get points and are blessed by so many living creatures in the universe, and by the stars and by everything that exists. So this is one of my hopes, is that people will grow some more compassion muscles, and that eventually that will lead to more veganism and more humane treatment of our fellow humans. And We’re going to begin with a Bach sonata.” “Oh! I really loved the sound. The flute is so beautiful. The sound is so beautiful.”

Six Paramitas Sutra -The Benevolent Holds No Hatred, Part 2 of 6

Escape from the sea of suffering just for a room and food! Move to a foreign land to start a new life! Father! My father, the beloved king of the people, is protecting the lands and not forsaking anyone. I vow to protect and fight for our kingdom. I won’t allow any damage to our Worry-Free kingdom! Father, your son will lead an elite squad to break through the siege! As long as you, as a king, promise that in exchange of my head, you will grant peace to my people, I will offer my head. I deem the throne as dust and gold or jade as rubble. I sacrifice myself to preserve the lives of the people. The world is ephemeral, and our kingdom is fragile and in danger. The change from living to dead, I go through this for the people, without complaint nor hatred.

“Supreme Master, thank You so much for having us here. It’s a really wonderful experience. And before we play the next piece, I just wanted to recount an experience that I had a couple of days ago. I was looking at some of Your artwork that You’ve made over the years and some of the photographs that You’ve taken, and I was having a conversation with two of Your disciples. And they were explaining to me in great detail, Your creative process and how You went about taking these photographs and making these paintings. And the energy that they exuded when they were having this conversation with me, impacted me in a way that was, I would say transcendent. I felt after speaking with them and experiencing, like the competence and the kindness and the compassion with which they spoke, I became like almost physically kind of elated. …So, I just want to say that the inspiration that You share with Your disciples and the people here is truly magical. And thank You so much for all that You do.” “And now ‘I Will Forever Love You’ and these words are very important and very comforting." Wow! Enchanting! Let’s all show our warm appreciation for Kerry and Michan Walsh.
