A Benefit for Ashland's 4th annual Peace Village Festival

In his only Ashland appearance this Spring, Shimshai will be at CultureWorks -- Ashland's exciting new venue -- playing a benefit concert for Peace Village Festival. Whether singing the ancient Sanskrit mantras of India, the traditional folklore songs of South America, or performing his original works of divine inspiration, Shimshai's music invokes a sentiment of ancestral devotion and a dedication to higher consciousness. A self-proclaimed seeker of truth, described by many as possessing the voice of an angel, Shimshai is gifted with the innate ability to deliver his message flawlessly in several languages, most profoundly the universal language of Love and Oneness. His unique blend of reggae, jazz, kirtan, and folk, infused with a worldbeat influence, provides a diverse palette of musical expression and attracts a wide range of listeners.

Jaya Lakshmi (lead singer of Lost At Last) from Eugene will be singing backup vocals, gracing us with her angelic voice. Hari and friends will be opening the show with an eclectic mix of Hari's original conscious, rock, reggae, and world music tunes. And Sasha Rose will be lighting up the late night with her special electronica set. Sasha brings a unique original sound to her dj sets. She creates luscious soundscapes and deep bass lines all bridged by her live soulful angelic voice and flute playing. Playing off ableton live, she creates a collage of different sounds and rhythms with deep lyrical content. She has been touring extensively for ten years, and brings all the flavors of her experience to the stage. Sasha Rose will take you on an unforgettable musical journey.

CultureWorks will be serving their full scrumptious organic, veggie, vegan, and raw menu, and -- as a special treat -- Ashland's Bliss Bar will be offering their delicious-nutritious herbal elixirs. CultureWorks is Ashland's newest, coolest venue. It's an alcohol free environment with all ages welcome, showcasing beautiful artwork.

Earth & Eco News


The Anthropocene defines Earth's most recent geologic time period as being human-influenced, or anthropogenic, based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes are now altered by humans. The word combines the root "anthropo", meaning "human" with the root "-cene", the standard suffix for "epoch" in geologic time. The Anthropocene is distinguished as a new period either after or within the Holocene, the current epoch, which began approximately 10,000 years ago (about 8000 BC) with the end of the last glacial period.

Solar Power To Become 4th Largest Electric Power Capacity In The World (Passing Up Wind) | CleanTechnica

California is throttling back record levels of solar—and that’s bad news for climate goals | MIT Technology Review

Californians are enjoying a sunny spring, which means the state’s solar farms and rooftop panels are flooding the grid with electricity. The problem is, they’re producing so much that plummeting prices and mandates by the state’s grid operator are forcing renewable power plants to throttle back production. In April, California solar and wind farms shut down or dialed back nearly 95,000 megawatt-hours of electricity, a new record, according to the California Independent System Operator, which manages the vast majority of the state’s electricity. That’s enough to power more than 30 million homes for an hour.
