SORT BY Relevancy
What’s the relationship between singing and collaborating? When do lyrics end and scatting begin? How do vocalists integrate into instrumental bands? On Friday August 8, 2014, we’ll trade fours with Vocalist Rhonda Benin. Rhonda’s work with Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Al Green, Hugh Masekela and others has taken her to 27 countries but she’s always come back home to help young vocalists find their voices in elementary schools, jazz camps, assemblies and workshops. Join us on Trading Fours and “Get in on the rhythm.”

ENVISION THIS: African vodun is universal to all of humankind in its spiritual and psychological benefits.
Mami Wata has a mission is to educate those interested in authentic African Vodun and to help dispel the myths associated with it as well as assist those in their own personal journey towards their service of the spirits regardless of race, creed, color, sexual orientation or gender. Mami studied traditional medicine and psychology in Africa and became a priestess. She is author of the book Thy Name is Vodun.
Understanding that traditional African priests are healers as well as spiritual leaders and aware that conventional psychology was inadequate for the African American in some cases, she wanted to examine that which had been lost, to them as a people during the slave experience, so as to re-integrate these things for the spiritual and psychological healing of African Americans today. “However, what I found was that since all of humankind was born of spirits and originated from the continent of Africa, vodun, which means “spirit” in the Fon language, is universal to all of humankind in its spiritual and psychological benefits.”
Mami’s professional background comes from the two fields of Education and Psychoanalysis. While she returns to Africa periodically, most of her time has been spent in America teaching about the African spirituality of vodun from an insider’s perspective and assisting those who wish to serve the spirits on their spiritual journeys. She is part of one of the largest Mami Wata Dan temples on the West Coast of Africa…Temple Behumbeza…(Cotonou) Benin, West Africa.

In the second hour we will continue our examination of the history and significance of state repression in the United States with a audio file on the impact of the rebellions in Ferguson, Missouri during 2014-2015. Finally in the third hour we analyze the character of social movements over the last four years in the U.S. including Occupy, union struggles, urban rebellions and mass protests.

While Europe was experiencing its Dark Ages, a period of intellectual, cultural and economic regression from the sixth to the 13th centuries, Africans were experiencing an almost continent-wide renaissance after the decline of the Nile Valley civilizations of Egypt and Nubia.
The leading civilizations of this African rebirth were the Axum Empire, the Kingdom of Ghana, the Mali Empire, the Songhai Empire, the Ethiopian Empire, the Mossi Kingdoms and the Benin Empire.
The Aksum or Axum Empire was an important military power and trading nation in the area that is now Eritrea and northern Ethiopia, existing from approximately 100 to 940 A.D.
At its height, it was one of only four major international superpowers of its day along with Persia, Rome and China. Axum controlled northern Ethiopia, Eritrea, northern Sudan, southern Egypt, Djibouti, Western Yemen, and southern Saudi Arabia, totaling 1.25 million square kilometers, almost half the size of India. Axum traded and projected its influence as far as China and India, where coins minted in Axum were discovered in 1990.When European merchant ships began to visit West Africa from the 15th century onwards, Benin came to control the trade between the inland peoples and the Europeans on the coast. When the British tried to expand their own trade in the 19th century, the Benin warriors killed their envoys.
