Event Description

Eliyahu Sills and “Qadim” return to Ashland on Sunday, July 11 at 7:30 PM in concert at the Havurah. "Qadim" means "ancient" in Hebrew and Arabic. It also means "that which will come" in both languages. It's a powerfully appropriate name for the group of musicians who work with multi-instrumentalist, Eliyahu Sills.

The group's latest album, "Eastern Wind," is an achingly beautiful blend of 12 folk songs from throughout the Middle East, with songs sung in Arabic, Hebrew, Armenian and Turkish featuring exquisite instrumental pieces, as well as others enhanced by the haunting bell-like clarity of Rachel Valfer's vocals.
The music of the respective tracts of land known as North Africa, the Middle East, and the share a great deal of common ground. Eliyahu & The Qadim Ensemble has dedicated itself to this commonality, the modes and rhythms.
Leader Eliyahu Sills has studied jazz, Indian classical, Arabic, and Turkish music, all of which embrace improvisation. Though he plays the upright (acoustic) bass and saz (a Turkish variant of the lute), Sills' main axe is the ney, a deep-toned wooden flute indigenous to a good-size chunk of the aforementioned lands. Oud (a large lute) player Rachel Valfer sings songs in Arabic, Hebrew, Armenian, and Turkish (plus a few Sills originals). The amber tone of the oud, the plaintive cry of the ney, and the cyclic percussion intertwine in sublime fashion throughout. On the up- tempo selections, the results of commingling the oud's and ney's lower ranges and the complex yet mesmerizing rhythms range from soothing to ecstatic. Some West African influence slips in via what resembles a mbira (African thumb piano). Eastern Wind is truly world music, some of the most open, human music you'll hear.

Eliyahu Sills has been studying and performing music for over 20 years. In the early 1990s, he studied the upright bass in at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City. In the years that followed, Eliyahu fell in love with the flute and applied the musical theory that he learned through his jazz studies to teach himself this most ancient of instruments. After falling under the spell of the music of Turkey, he became a student of both the nay, the reed flute of the Middle East, and the bansuri, the bamboo flute of India.

Eliyahu's mastery of musical styles spans the globe. He has performed and recorded vibrant music of the Middle East with Za'atar, West African folk music with the Palm Wine Boys, soul roots reggae with the Original Intentions, Latin-tinged jazz with Sparlha Swa, bluegrass- inspired beats with Ilene Adar, and revolutionary Hip-hop with Rebels Advocate.
Tickets, $12 in advance, $15 door, $10 students and free for children under 12 available at the Music Coop, 181 “A” St. in Ashland or online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/116082

Coronavirus News

Explosive If True: “I’m a Clinical Lab Scientist, C19 Is Fake, Wake up America” | The True Defender !

What we found was that all of the 1500 samples were mostly Influenza A and some were influenza B, but not a single case of Covid, and we did not use the B.S. PCR test. We then sent the remainder of the samples to Stanford, Cornell, and a few of the University of California labs and they found the same results as we did, NO COVID. They found influenza A and B. All of us then spoke to the CDC and asked for viable samples of COVID, which CDC said they could not provide as they did not have any samples. We have now come to the firm conclusion through all our research and lab work, that the COVID 19 was imaginary and fictitious. The flu was called Covid and most of the 225,000 dead were dead through co-morbidities such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, emphysema etc. and they then got the flu which further weakened their immune system and they died. I have yet to find a single viable sample of Covid 19 to work with. We at the 7 universities that did the lab tests on these 1500 samples are now suing the CDC for Covid 19 fraud. the CDC has yet to send us a single viable, isolated and purifed sample of Covid 19. If they can’t or won’t send us a viable sample, I say there is no Covid 19, it is fictitious. The four research papers that do describe the genomic extracts of the Covid 19 virus never were successful in isolating and purifying the samples. All the four papers written on Covid 19 only describe small bits of RNA which were only 37 to 40 base pairs long which is NOT A VIRUS. A viral genome is typically 30,000 to 40,000 base pairs.

COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test Led To Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak | Forbes

Many who’ve had a nasal Covid-19 test performed on themselves have described it as feeling like that swab got as far back as their brains. If done correctly, the swab is angled parallel to the floor, all the way to the back of the nose, and the swab is rubbed on an area called the nasopharynx. The actual term is a nasopharyngeal swab, not nasal swab, because it’s the nasopharynx that contains the highest possible viral load to best determine an active Covid-19 infection. The distance from the average nasal tip to the nasopharynx is close to 6 inches. So if it feels like there’s a half a foot being stuck up your nose, well, you’re not so far off.

CDC says asymptomatic people don't need testing, draws criticism from experts | TheHill

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) quietly changed its guidance on Monday to now say that asymptomatic people do not need to be tested for coronavirus, even if they have been in close contact with an infected person. The agency made the move by updating its website but did not make any public announcement or explain the reasoning behind the major revision.  The guidance now states: “If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet) of a person with a COVID-19 infection for at least 15 minutes but do not have symptoms: You do not necessarily need a test unless you are a vulnerable individual or your health care provider or State or local public health officials recommend you take one.”

What Kind of Covid Test Should I Get? Answers on Cost, Accuracy and More | WSJ

There are two generally available types of Covid-19 tests. The first, and most commonly used so far, is a PCR test, which is short for polymerase chain reaction. It’s a molecular test, meaning it searches for the virus’s genetic material in a nasal swab or saliva sample, and it is often processed in a highly complex laboratory. There are two ways to collect a nasal sample: from the inside of a nostril, or from the back of the nose and throat. The second way, called a nasopharyngeal swab, requires a professional to probe more deeply into the nasal cavity to get the sample. Some testing sites may ask you to swab your nose or cheek yourself, or spit into a tube. Each of these collection methods creates a sample that can be analyzed with a PCR test. Antigen tests, which search the sample for viral proteins instead of the virus’s genetic code, are becoming more widespread in the U.S. Right now, antigen tests are typically offered at doctor’s offices, nursing homes, schools and other congregate settings where groups of people need testing fast.
