General Discussion / 1984 2012 timelapse deforestation
« on: May 09, 2013, 07:24:13 PM »

I am not sure if this will post what i was looking at.. but when i stopped, i had zoomed deep into the jungles of africa and south america to watch the deforestation that we have been doing for the past few decades... in some places its worse, in others you can see the grids forming and eventually branching into sectional clearing...

the map is interesting.. you can move it about to wherever you want and zoom in to watch globally,  the satellite images for the  past 30 years time lapse... watch the expansion of one thing and the decline of others....

 (i can see it didnt leave off where I wanted... I had it poised over Gabon... this just sets you back to the amazon..

The Muse / Bwiti Song....

not sure the sect or setting..
or its manner of translation...

but here is a Bwiti Song...

So was the beginning, Spirit of the earth, spirit of
the sky. The place that we traverse.
Father Zame, who is the gatekeeper, I come to a new
land that is the cemetery...
Lightning and Thunder.
Sun and Moon.
Heaven and Earth.
They are all of them twins.
they are life and death.
They are all twins.
The yawning hole of the grave and the new life,
they are all twins.

... Joy, full of joy the ancestors greet you and hear the news.
The anxious life of the born is at an end, at an end.
And now come the disciples of death....
I go to the dead.....

Everything is pure, pure...
Everything is new, new...
Everything is light, light...

I have seen the dead
and I am not afraid!!!

eha aho!
eh... basse!

The Muse / Initiation Music... lost and found
« on: April 27, 2013, 03:58:49 PM »
hello all..
I am curious if anyone has a full recording of the "Rich Bow" session???
I am not sure the other names that it might be found under.. Richards Session? Richard Harp?

this is one of my favorite recordings of bwiti harp and session  music.. there is a lot of singing involved and I am not sure who the singer and harpist is.. OKA?? mBOka ngombi?? sorta sound like him but I am unsure.. the session recording is a little different because the singing is more "lyric" oriented than chanting and repition (if that makes sense) AND.. it is a little "darker" like.. it feels more personal and story telling than guiding and watchful....
it seems to be more melodic and less bangy and chaotic

I did find a partial recording in here a while back ..
it was in a couple large and awesome collections of harp and other bwiti music...
it was under the HARP folder.. the same one with the womens initiation.. the delani one)

if anyone knows or has any idea of what I am asking that would be awesome...

I am new in here and actually found my way  here trying to find (or recover) some bwiti harp music that i lost when my computer crashed....
oddly enough, not only did I actually find a good portion of my favorite recording (rich bow) i seem to have stumbled across some familiar folks.

I am glad to see this forum is here and the wide range of available info and input..
