Dave Stringer is an innovative kirtan leader, songwriter, recording artist and speaker who performs internationally. He is one of the headliners at the pre-eminent US Kirtan extravaganza, Bhaktifest. Dave hasn't performed in Southern Oregon for 3 years, and we are very excited to bring him back. You don't want want to miss this opportunity to see him!

Dave Stringer’s Magic & Logic tour, with Indian American singer and multi-instrumentalist Sheela Bringi, and will be a launch party for both Dave’s soulful, energetic and critically acclaimed new album, Ojas, and Sheela’s powerful debut album Incantations.

The show will open with Sheela and selections from Incantations. Her silken harp and haunting bansuri flute playing, combined with her delicate and entrancing voice, are exquisite. Her sound is otherworldly, simultaneously exotically Indian and deeply familiar.

The concert continues with Dave and his drummer, Miles, joining Sheela on stage adding guitar, tabla and cajon to the mix. The trio will lead a series of call and response kirtan chants, inviting the audience to sing the Sanskrit mantras with them. The mantras are projected on stage for audience members to follow.

Between the kirtans, Dave and Sheela perform a number of bhajans (spiritual poems in Hindi, Urdu, and Marathi, set to music) with spoken English translations and commentary.

Together, in their first ever collaboration tour, Dave and Sheela will bring together tradition and innovation in an unforgettable fusion of the vocal and songwriting traditions of America and India.

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.

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.
