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.

In Victory for Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Court Finds That Approval of Dakota Access Pipeline Violated the Law |THE INDIGENOUS AMERICAN

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe won a significant victory today in its fight to protect the Tribe’s drinking water and ancestral lands from the Dakota Access pipeline. A federal judge ruled that the federal permits authorizing the pipeline to cross the Missouri River just upstream of the Standing Rock reservation, which were hastily issued by the Trump administration just days after the inauguration, violated the law in certain critical respects.

Stop ignoring Arizona on public lands | AZC

Gov. Doug Ducey’s assertion that Arizonans oppose the Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument is unfounded. State polls show vast support for protecting the Grand Canyon watershed from uranium mining and preserving the threatened cultural and historical sites in the region.
