Tel Aviv Hosts Indian Music Extravaganza


Shye Ben-Tzur & The Incredible Rajasthan Gypsies Tour Israel With Their

‘RAJASTHAN MAGICAL TOUR’

 ‘Rajasthan Magical Tour’  It’s the name on the lips of music lovers across the nation at the moment. Absolutely everyone is talking about it.  Or at least it seems that way.  No matter where I go in Tel Aviv, I hear people excitedly talking about the upcoming Oct- Nov concerts. On the bus, the train, a cafe, a yoga class, honestly, its like the buzz word in the city right now.

After a hugely successful sell out concert on their last visit to the holyland,  Israels’ music fans are beside themselves with excitement at having the opportunity once again to be mesmerised by this truly enchanting  ensemble of musical talent. 

Shye Ben-Tzur, a talented Israeli composer, producer and musician living in India, creates his music by combining traditional Sufi sounds, Rajasthani beats and Western elements.  The mix of genres, languages and beats totally captivates and entrances all who have the privledge to listen.  ‘It is a thrilling experience to attend one of these performances, its incredibly moving ‘ is one womans explanation of  her last Shye Ben-Tzur concert experience. 

Both local and global music critics enthusiastically agree without doubt, that Shye is one of the most original and exciting cross-cultural artists working today. ‘He leads the exceptional musicians from India and Israel with talent and charm, in performances that leave you spellbound, wanting more’  said one critic.

In Tel Aviv, Shye Ben-Tzur & The Incredible Rajasthan Gypsies are performing at  Zappa  on Saturday, October 30th as part of the Tel Aviv Music Festival.  doors open 9.00pm  concert starts 10pm.  

By popular demand, thankfully, there’s more than one concert in Israel this time. Performances will be held at a number of venues around the nation. And much to the delight of  local musicians,  there’s also an opportunity to attend an intimate hands-on vocal/beat workshop & encounter with Shye Ben-Tzur and the Rajasthani musicians beforeone of  the concerts.

Tel Aviv Community Meditates together for Gilad Shalit in Rabin Square 1st September


 

A special meditation is being held in Rabin Square at 8.30pm MONDAY 1st September. The meditation is in honour of Gilad Shalit, a young Israeli soldier who was kidnapped and is still being held by Hamas. Gilad turned 21 on August 28th.

communities coming together

Tel Aviv Community coming together

 

Whether you are residents of Tel Aviv or are visitors to the city,  you are sincerely invited and encouraged to join a special event being held in Rabin Square, Tel Aviv tonight MONDAY 1st September.

Gilad was a young soldier kidnapped in 2006. August 28th was Gilad’s 21st birthday and he has still not been released and returned to the safety of his family and friends. The purpose of tonights meditation is to, as a community group, focus our intention on his safe return.

What does group meditation do?   

Group meditations are a very beautiful concept.  When alot of people gather together to meditate, the energy of the group vibrates at a much higher level than usual.  When this heightened energy is focussed towards a particular cause/reason/ idea  it can often have very powerful positive results.

Group meditations are held all over the world for different causes and purposes. They are a very personal way for communities to come together and ‘pool their energy’ for a cause close to their hearts. There is a very real sense that you are ‘doing something’ about a problem that you would like to see resolved. You are in a very pure way, being part of the solution, it is a truly special experience. 

 What is a guided meditation?

Guided meditation is very  easy. You are not required to simply focus on your breath, but are instead asked to listen to the words of the meditation leader who will guide you to visualise a story, to create images in your mind to match the story they are speaking of.  Usually, the story will be the postive outcome of the cause/idea/reason everyone has gathered together. 

For example: For world peace one would perhaps visualise conflicting countries coming together and finding solutions. You may be asked to visualise leaders shaking hands on join decisions, to visualise genuine friendship, smiling faces and people signing peace documents.  You may be asked to visualise schools where the conflicting countries children are studying together and having fun in the playgrounds together and you may be asked to visualise people living side by side in harmony and so on and so on.

Mystic Rose is a powerful meditative therapy created by Osho, one of Indias finest mystics and possibly one of the most most teachers of the 21st century.   
When Osho created this powerful therapy he is quoted as saying I have invented many meditations, but perhaps this will be the most essential and fundamental one. It is the first major breakthrough since Vipassana 25 centuries ago”   
 MYSTIC ROSE  is a  3 week course, which runs every day for 3 hours.
 
Week 1: Laughing for 3 hours for seven days. This removes all the inhibitions and repression that hinder our spontaneous laughter and natural joy.

Week 2: Crying for 3 hours for seven days. This uncovers the next layer of repression. All the agonies and tears, allowing a great unburdening and release of pain and suffering.

Week 3: Observation for 3 hours for seven days . Be the “watcher on the hill.”  With a thoroughly cleansed heart, one sits silently in meditation.
