    Malidoma Some - Dagara Cosmology

    in Health

    "For the Dagara, cosmology begins with the story of creation.  In the beginning there was no earth as we know it.  In its place was a burning planet, a ball of fire combusting at high speed.  Therefore, fire is the first element of the Dagara wheel.  Fire is present in everything, and everything needs fire.  It was not until this moving and burning sphere encountered a huge body of water that things began to change.  Water became the second element in the cosmological wheel.  The shock resulting from the collision of fire and water not only slowed the combustion process, but also chased fire into the underworld, leaving the surface as a hot steamy place, fertile for the breeding of all kinds of life forms.  This surface, hospitable to life, is what is known as earth, which constitutes the third elemental principal of the Dagara cosmological wheel.  The various hard components of the earth provide structure and connection and are known as mineral or stone, the fourth element in the cosmological.wheel.

    Meanwhile, a steam of great density formed the atmosphere around the earth.  (These images translate imperfectly into Western terms; think of them as poetic rather than scientific descriptions.)  As the steam expanded, its pressure began to subside.  The reduction of atmospheric pressure was conducive to the birth of life,and thus the fifth element, vegetative nature, came into being." The Healing Wisdom of Africa

    Malidoma Some - The Call of The Ancestors - Nature and the Dagara Shaman

    in Health

    "We find in nature everything we need to be whole.  But the gap between us and nature is growing bigger instead of smaller---we humans should not alter anything in nature because we run the risk of losing life-giving information hidden in it.  As a consequence, illness is a distancing from the model of health offered by nature and any stuckness in our lives is due to a piece of nature having falling off from the inner structure of their existence.  No one can survive without nature!

    Most of us have been visually conditioned to see the world within a limited spectrum, and for each person, this is the spectrum into which every object must fit.  The wider the visual horizon of a person, the closer he or she is to seeing things as they are.  After all, reality is malleable, manufacturable, and therefore transferable.  In other words, we all see the same tree because we are bound by an agreement.  But those who can break the agreement are able to see more closely into the core of being.  For example indigenous "magicians" are people who are not bound by consensus perception, hence their ability to see through all living things." Of Water and The Spirit - Dr. Malidoma Patrice Some'

    "SOME GOOD CRAIC " - BANGERS AND MASH -Quicksand Cafe

    in Music

    On wednesday night 12/3/14 8 pm EST. Some Good Craic welcomes back Bangers and Mash for a CD/VIDEO release party . Bangers and Mash have recently released a new CD titled "Quicksand Cafe' " . I'll be chatting with the band and playing some new tunes off the cd . And during the show I'll be releasing the Video for the song "Quicksand Cafe " we shot during the summer.


    Formed in New York in 2003, Bangers and Mash absolutely refuses to define itself as a "unique blend of fiddle and guitar" or "a cutting edge combination of rock and traditional Irish music." 


    Make no mistake - they are unique, and they do blend fiddle and guitar, along with bass, drums, vocals and various other noise-making items. However, this is not the ubiquitous "Celtic Rock Band" performing the usual Irish Top 40. Perish the thought!


    Bangers and Mash is a rare treat... a band of hardworking, talented musicians who perform their own music, their own way. Sure, you might occasionally find a familiar Irish tune dropped into the middle of a rock ballad, and you may even hear something that sounds vaguely like "The Fields of Athenry" now and then. (How "vaguely"? You'll be on the third verse before saying "Wait a minute, I think I know this song!") 


    What you will hear, from the opening notes of their first song to the last beat of the encore, is original, driving and brilliant songs guaranteed to stick with you the whole way home... and beyond. Songs that make you laugh, dance, think, sing along and come back for more. All delivered in a style that is uniquely Bangers and Mash.  The full-time line-up includes Liam Hudock on vocals, whistle and spoons, Carole Anderson on Vocals and Bodhran, Alexandra Adams on fiddle, Chad Herth on electric lead guitar, Seth Lesselbaum on bass, and Anthony Anastase on drums and percussion.
