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.

What others are saying about Shimshai and his music:
"An enchanted mixture of spirit and soul, danceable and tranceable."
~ Lieb Ostrow, founder and CEO, Earthbeat Records

"Shimshai's music emanates a divine presence and a quality of peace, a truly 'natural mystic' energy that flows into the hearts of his listeners. His musicality is superb, as is that of his bandmates, and his singing is sublime and transcendent."
~ Jai Uttal

"When I hear this music I feel my soul rise up and start dancing."
~ Sunshine Pressider, KMUD, Humboldt County, California

Project in Morocco combines hemp and solar to go totally off grid | Hemp Today

A team of organizations has completed construction of a ground-breaking eco-building in Morocco that combines hemp construction with a high-tech solar energy system for total independence from the electrical grid. The SUNIMPLANT project, designed as a single-family dwelling, was created as an entrant in the recent “Solar Decathlon” organized by the United States Department of Energy and Morocco’s Centre de recherche en Energie solaire et Energies nouvelles. The biannual international competition challenges teams of students to design and construct solar-powered buildings. The most recent edition was hosted in Ben Guerir, Morocco, the first time the competition has been held on the African continent.

Arundhati Roy: Our Task is to Disable the Engine | Progressive International

While the human race is momentarily incarcerated, and even as a record-size hole opens in the ozone layer above the Arctic, the earth has given us an indication of her ability to heal. Even in our moments of sickness and loss we cannot help but hold our collective breath in wonder at the show she has put on. But plans are afoot to put an end to all of that. In India, for example, just in these last few days, a large portion of a tiger reserve is about to be turned over to a religious gathering—the Kumbh Mela—which attracts tens of millions of Hindu pilgrims. An elephant reserve in Assam is being marked off for coal mining, and thousands of acres of pristine Himalayan forest in Arunachal Pradesh marked off for submergence by the reservoir of a new hydroelectric dam. Meanwhile, not to be outdone, President Trump has signed an executive order allowing mining on the moon.

This New Electric Jet Concept Uses Air Friction to Generate Power | Robb Report

While the most current trend in business aviation is all about creating the next generation of electric and hybrid-powered aircraft, a new kind of space race could emerge if the physics actually support the theory behind Eather One. Designer Michal Bonikowski’s concept is probably four or five generations ahead of the current mode of thinking, but Bonikowski told Robb Report that he was inspired by the recent Maveric concept by Airbus. “That aircraft’s unique design helps reduce drag while providing more cabin space,” he said. “I have been thinking a lot about this lately, and wondered what could happen if a big company would like to create an electric plane.”
