SORT BY Relevancy
This week on SOTT Talk Radio we're talking with Gilad Atzmon, world-renowned Jazz musician, essayist, and author. Touring the world with the Orient House Ensemble he founded in London in 2000, Atzmon is an outspoken critic of Israel's policies, not least towards the Palestinians and neighbouring countries.
Born in Israel and grandson to an early Zionist 'freedom fighter', to say that Atzmon's insights about Israel and 'The Jewish Question' have raised a few hackles would be an understatement! Despite receiving support from such high-profile public figures as U.S. academic John Mearsheimer and U.N. Special Rapporteur Richard Falk, Atzmon's book The Wandering Who? A Study of Jewish Identity Politics has been roundly condemned in Western media.
Accused of being 'anti-semitic' and a 'self-hating Jew', Atzmon counters his critics by continuing to shed light on the strong taboo against questioning Israel or the involvement of high-profile Jewish figures in global 'big power games'.
We hope you'll join us for our discussion with Atzmon this Sunday 20th of April. Please note that we’re broadcasting at a different time this week, two hours later than usual: from 4-6pm EST (1pm-3pm PST, 10pm-12am CET, 9-11pm GMT).

Eliana Gilad joins us from Jerusalem especially for Christmas week to share with us the power and history of sound. Eliana is a motivational speaker, teacher, composer, performer and founder of Voices of Eden Ancient Healing and Transformational Music.She is dedicated to her life’s work to revive the conscious use of voice and rhythm as natural healing instruments. Eliana is a frequent keynote presenter, teacher and performer at healing music, medical, and peace conferences throughout the world including the UN, The Chopra Center, and TEDx. She is also author to Rhythms of the Natural Voice: Sound Healing with Hebrew Meditation Workbook and Quiet in the Eye of the Storm: Living Peace in a War Zone.
Sound is the essence of all matter and the spark of all creation. It emerges from a place of silence and exists without cognitive thought. Sound is our essence and our soul. This is why, when we are disempowered, it is said we have “lost our voice.” Our voice, our sound is the expression of our soul. This is also why there is such a fear of public speaking, for when we speak we vulnerably express our soul, our being to others.
Listen in to learn more about sound and how its role in ancient times is reemerging. Learn how sound created through friction and conflict mirrors our own life and transformation and encourages us to embrace conflict in order to find harmony and peace. Experience for yourself the power of sound coming out of silence as Eliana plays a piece for empowerment. Be empowered to look inside yourself for answers instead of the quick fix promises of outside forces.

Gilad Atzmon is a jazz musician and author born in Israel in 1963. His new book 'The Wandering Who' discusses Jewish identity and how it is tied up with some of today’s most difficult and contentious issues. A Study of Jewish Identity Politics, is to open up many of these issues for discussion. He examines Jewish identity politics and Jewish contemporary ideology using both popular culture and scholarly texts. Since Israel defines itself openly as the ‘Jewish State’, we should ask what the notions of Judaism, Jewishness, Jewish culture and Jewish ideology stand for. Atzmon analyses secular Jewish political and cultural discourse, both Zionist and anti Zionist. He looks at the Jewish political attitude towards history and time, the role of the holocaust, anti-gentile ideologies, Jewish pressure groups, Zionist lobbying and more. In this interview we also compare the treatment of Palestinians by the Israeli regime to the treatment of Jews by Nazi Germany, Gilad also explains some of the many nuances of the situation.

Frame Drum Wisdom- Reclaim Your Voice for Healing with Karen Renee Robb
After 25 years in Corporate America, Karen Renée felt a deep calling to use her unique talents, experience & marketing expertise to advocate for and participate in sound & music healing modalities.She found inspiration in frame drum singing, toning and drumming. Introduced to the frame drum from a TEDx talk by Eliana Gilad in early 2013, she states “The first time I watched & listened to her sing into the drum, I knew that I was being called to do it as well. I believe there is an opportunity for a lot of people to resonate with it." Karen facilitates "play-shops," organizational workshops & private sessions to introduce others to the art and magic of the frame drum.
Her new venture called "Frame Drum Wisdom-Reclaim Your Voice For Healing", is helping people reclaim their voice, to speak their truth and create sounds that stir their heart & soul. She has touched the lives of people in transition through volunteering at Alive Hospice; awakened the voices of people of all ages, especially women; provided connection & vocal strength for people with Parkinson’s; and even used the drum to aide in a local drug rehabilitation program. Karen believes the application for this frame drum wisdom is truly endless.
My Guest today is: Trevor LaBonte who just played with Gilad Atzmon in Austin and Houston. Gilad wrote this: “The War Against Trevor (LaBonte)
Gilad Atzmon interviews Trevor Labonte
Until two years ago, Trevor LaBonte was one of the most successful Jazz artists in Texas. He had been performing every night and in the most prestigious venues. He was the first-call guitar player for many of Austin’s prominent musicians. But then it all changed.
Gilad Atzmon: Trevor you were a local Jazz hero, what happened?
Trevor LaBonte: An activist named Craig Berlin, owner of Pro-Tape Staff in Austin, organized a campaign to destroy my career by terrorizing the entire Austin music community. He creates Facebook posts in which he tags 50 or 60 important people in town, and reports to them that I am a ‘Nazi,’ an ‘Anti-Semite,’ and a ‘holocaust denier.’ Berlin demands that everyone must do everything in their power to make sure I never play another note in public. At first, most people ignored him, but then others took up his cause, including the radio DJ Andy Langer from KGSR, helping to make sure I have become a hate figure and completely ostracized.
Let me understand correctly, you didn’t publish a book or even an article, all that vile campaign against you was launched because you expressed some thoughts on your own Facebook page? Is it correct?
Yes, that's what happened.
How have your friends reacted to this onslaught?
They are confused and afraid, mostly. Many of them quietly agree with at least some of what I say, and they are still friends with me. Anyone who tries to stick up for me, or just moderate the witch hunt against me, risks being similarly attacked themselves.

"What do you identify yourself with? How do you describe yourself? Does this create a sense of stress or joy in your life?
The most basic of identities e.g. "I am a woman", when consciously questioned, can bring up a mixed bag of feelings. Questioning thoughts, also allows for questioning feelings. Are you really who you think you are? Who is it who decides what you think? Parents? Society? Schools? Friends? Media? There are so many influences within which we are raised. We are influenced by those around us. Yet it is we who decide how we think..." -says Israeli Eliana Gilad, gifted music therapyst who thru ancient healing and transformational music helps her clients reconnect to the Source of their authentic and natural voices. Since 1994 Eliana Gilad has worked with thousands of healthcare professionals, coaches, yoga teachers, spiritual healers and peace leaders, helping them to reconnect to the Source of their authentic and natural voice. Eliana has dedicated her life to revive the ancient healing music practices of the biblical prophetess Miriam through the creation of Voices of Eden music. The music was medically researched for three years at Meir Hospital Neonatal ward and found to lower blood pressure, heart rate, increase focus and quality of sleep amongst the neonates, their parents and the medical staff. Gilad has presented with Dr. Masaru Emoto (Messages from Water) who has also researched her music, and has been invited to present before the United Nations three times. Join Peruvian show host, healer and founder of Inner Healers Luciana Stiglich, while she interviews Eliana Gilad on how music and the sound of our voice can help us connect with our Spiritual Identity.
