The Sacred Music of South India - a Classical Carnatic Music Concert Featuring Emmanuelle Martin
The Sea of Glass Performance Hall
April 24, 2014
Event begins at 7:00 PM
A concert of classical Carnatic singing and music featuring vocalist Emmanuelle Martin, this concert is performed in traditional style, with musicians on violin and mridangam (drum) surrounding the vocalist in a seated fashion. It is the hypnotizing beauty of the singing which both sets the stage and invokes the sacred mood of this music.

About Emmanuelle Martin

Emmanuelle Martin is a French native who has excelled as one of a rare few Westerners to undertake an apprenticeship to this demanding and ancient art form. Growing up with parents classically trained in Western music, from before she could talk Emmanuelle was surrounded by the practice and appreciation of music with merit. By age 4 she had started Western musical training. Her father, as well as being classically trained in Western music, practiced and taught Carnatic singing, the classical music of southern India, but it was a style of music that didn’t interest Emmanuelle — until a vocal teacher from India came to visit. After a couple hours in his workshop, hearing his pure expression of Carnatic music, something shifted in her. She was irrevocably hooked.

At the age of 19, she moved to Chennai, India to devote herself to the art of Carnatic singing, and she lived there for nearly 10 years, studying with renowned music master T. M. Krishna. Carnatic music is passed down orally from teacher to student in a millennia-old tradition of discipline and commitment. She now travels between India, France and the United States performing, teaching and continuing her own training, driven by a profound commitment to her art.

Since starting to perform publicly in 2012, Emmanuelle has performed at the Raaga Tapasya Sacred Music Festival in Pondichery, India, for Shivaratri Festival in Chennai, India, and at main venues for the Madras Music Season in Chennai, the largest and most prestigious Carnatic music event in the world; she’s one of the few Westerners to participate in the festival. She’s performed in Lyon, France, Paris, France, Brussels, Belgium, and at the Prescott Center for the Arts in Arizona, as well as various private concerts in all three countries.

About Carnatic music

Carnatic music is one of the oldest musical forms still being practiced today, with roots in ancient Hindu musical traditions of the 12th century. With a foundation in Indian styles of raga (melodic modes) and tala (rhythmic cycles), centered around the voice and the interplay of vocals with the mrdangam (drum) and violin, Carnatic music blends complex devotional compositions and intricate improvisation.

In her dedication to the expression of this divine art, Emmanuelle evokes the beauty and power of centuries of cultural and musical tradition, with years of discipline and practice infusing each heart-opening note. The tender strength of her voice encompasses both the vast depth of the art form and the intimacy of the heart. When performers like Emmanuelle bring classical art to life, the modern milieu is transcended and the beauty and vitality of the ancient world is re-awakened for today.

The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing rollercoaster over the past two and a half years. Through the news, we only get a glimpse of the bloodiest battle, an election, or a million man march.

The Square is an immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights, struggling through multiple forces, in the fight to create a society of conscience.

Event begins at 7:00 PM
In the stillness after conflict, after the blood dries and the screams fade, the memory of violence transforms survivors into prisoners of their own pain. How do whole societies recover from devastating conflict? Can survivors live—converse, smile, and even laugh—beside someone who blinded them, killed their parents, or murdered their children? Can victims and perpetrators work together to rebuild their lives? This life-changing documentary explores the intersections of justice and forgiveness as survivors heal from these tragedies.

In Beyond Right and Wrong, victims of three devastating conflicts struggle to forgive without sacrificing their need for justice. From the Rwandan Genocide to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict to the Troubles in Northern Ireland, this transformative documentary allows viewers to delve deeply into the familiar battles for reconciliation and recovery, opening their eyes to the multifaceted expression of human resilience. “The stories broke my heart yet gave me enormous hope,” says co-director Lekha Singh. “I hope this film has illustrated the strength of the survivors and expressed the possibility of an alternative path towards justice, a solution rooted in neither violence nor hatred.”

The film garnered worldwide attention, living up to Singh’s hopes for the documentary’s message and impact. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon presented Beyond Right and Wrong to the General Assembly before they adopted a far-reaching resolution for the peaceful mediation of conflict. The American Psychological Association (APA) made Beyond Right and Wrong an official selection, awarding it Best Avant-Garde Film in 2013. Ireland’s Fingal Film Festival awarded it Best Documentary, while the LA Jewish Film Festival named it Runner-up for Best Documentary.

From its showing at the Hamptons International Film Festival to its impact in the psychology community, Beyond Right and Wrong offers hope for forgiveness and healing, promising to improve the well-being of people, communities, and the world.

Event begins at 7:30 PM
This instrumental power trio playfully melds jazz, funk, rock, pop, blues, R&B, gospel, roots, reggae, and even klezmer to create a style keyboardist and band lead, David Vincent Mills calls “Junk”.

DiVoM performs all original tunes by founder Mills featuring his funky, feel-good, virtuosic piano and keyboard skills. In addition to the traditional instrumentation of keyboards, bass and drums, the band remains up-beat and whimsical with their spontaneous use of unexpected instruments such as melodica, harmonica, toy piano, glockenspiel and various horns, bells and whistles. Mills' tunes are layered with a jazz structure but maintain a pop accessibility painted with a wide palette of foot tapping rollicking rhythms, mesmerizing melodies and hypnotic harmonies from around the world to create a groove-orientated adventure.

Since the age of 4, Mills has been composing songs and at the age of 6 he formally began his piano studies. In his early teens, he began studying with renowned pianist and composer Clare Fischer, later broadening his palette to include all musical genres of the world. Mills has performed throughout the world, including the Montreux Jazz Festival and the Playboy Jazz Festival and has opened up for the likes of Chick Corea, Lionel Hampton, and Eek-A-Mouse. He was the keyboardist for American Idol’s Kimberley Locke with whom he performed in stadiums, concerts halls, clubs throughout the U.S.A., and on national television on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Backing Mills is Baba Elefante on 5 String Fretless F Bass and Upright, and Craig Bunch on drums and percussion. Baba Elefante is a bassist and composer who was voted one of the nation's top bass players in a Bass Player Magazine poll. His studio work spans television, movies and records including the 1995 Universal movie "The Hunted"." Baba has performed with jazz trumpeter Roy Hargrove, saxophonists Pete Christlieb and Justo Almario, vocalist Michael Sweet, "Yes" keyboardist Patrick Moraz, Lee Osker Band and "Kansas" lead vocalist John Elefante.

Craig Bunch is a composer, improviser, and versatile drummer who not only lays down a solid groove, but treats the drum set like an orchestra, utilizing the full spectrum of timbres and textures available to him in his playing. This ability to capture the full range of the voice of the drum set adds to the depth of his free-form improvising. He has toured worldwide in various groups, most notably with John ‘Drumbo’ French of Captain Beefheart, and has performed with the Magic Band, Wadada Leo Smith, Vinny Golia, John ‘Drumbo’ French, and Geron Davis among others.

Fundraiser Screening of Gasland Part II
to Support the Earth Harmony Festival

Continuing in the spirit of Earth Day, The Sea Of Glass—Center For The Arts Cinema is hosting a fundraiser screening of the 2013 documentary sequel, Gasland Part II on Friday, May 9 at 7:00pm, to support the annual Earth Harmony Festival at Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage. Avalon Gardens hosts the Earth Harmony Festival each year to celebrate and educate about the need for sustainable practices and clean energy solutions through a weekend of live music, art, speakers, eco-vendor booths, healthy food, a kids village, and ecovillage tours. As part of their ongoing educational programs, Avalon Gardens also hosts various sustainability workshops as well as Earth Harmony Sustainability Seminars (next one is May 15-18) throughout the year. Mycenay Plyler, one of the festival coordinators and fundraisers, said, “People think fracking isn’t a problem in Arizona, but plans are already underway to explore the Mancos Shale on the Navajo Reservation in Northeastern Arizona. People need to get informed and speak out against this insane technology.”

In this explosive follow-up to his Oscar®-nominated film Gasland, filmmaker Josh Fox uses his trademark dark humor to take a deeper, broader look at the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil, now occurring on a global level (in 32 countries worldwide).

Gasland Part II shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most important environmental issues facing our nation today. The film argues that the gas industry’s portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil is a myth and that fracked wells inevitably leak over time, contaminating water and air, hurting families, and endangering the earth’s climate with the potent greenhouse gas, methane. In addition the film looks at how the powerful oil and gas industries are in Fox's words "contaminating our democracy". As gas drills multiply, clean-energy options are being passed over – like hydroelectric, wind, and solar, which some experts say can provide enough energy to power the world five times over.

Gasland Part II also provides startling claims that fracking may lead to earthquakes in communities that have never experienced them before. Video footage shows wells venting methane into the atmosphere in massive amounts, and how the practice of fracking has gone global, as seen in a visit to rural Australia, where stoic farmers assert that their wells have been turned into potential flame-spewing gushers.

The documentary is a call to awareness and action against fracking and the gas industry which is using its wealth and power to influence government policy, while buying the silence of countless American homeowners forced to move out of their longtime homes because their water has become too polluted to drink.

Recommended ages 16 & up; 125 min.

Suggested minimum donation is $10. Proceeds support the annual Earth Harmony Festival at Avalon Gardens in Tumacacori, AZ.

The Sea of Glass Performance Hall
May 23, 2014
Event begins at 7:00 PM
A documentary exposé on the apparent direct connection between the military’s escalating prescribing of psychiatric drugs and the soaring suicide rate among soldiers and veterans.

In early 2013, the United States Department of Defense announced the startling statistic that the number of military suicides in 2012 had far exceeded the total of those killed in battle—an average of nearly one a day. A month later came an even more sobering statistic from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs: veteran suicide was running at 22 a day—about 8000 a year. Facts reveal that 85% of military suicides have not seen combat and 52% were never even deployed. So what is causing military suicide rates to soar? All evidence points in one direction: the rising rates of psychiatric drug prescribing in the military since 2003.

A post-film discussion will be hosted by Hannis Latham who served in the U. S. Army from 1963 to 1966 as a Green Beret on an “A” Team with the 10th Special Forces Group, 1st Special Forces (Airborne), Detachment A-29. Hannis is now a member of Veterans for Peace, and active in working to support homeless veterans in finding housing and getting medical and mental health care. Hannis shared, “It is out of concern for the extremely high suicide deaths among both active duty and military veterans that I am cooperating with The Sea of Glass to present this film to the public in hopes that by bringing this problem to light and through education we as a society can help restore a degree of sanity to all our people.”

Hannis and his wife and partner, Betty Jo, have a family member who has been diagnosed as being mentally ill. In supporting their loved one as well as others with similar challenges Hannis and Betty have had an opportunity over the past two decades to observe up close the relationship between Big Pharma and mental health care givers. Hannis served for a number of years as Chairman of the Board of Directors from NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) Southern Arizona.

The Sea of Glass Performance Hall
May 24, 2014
Event begins at 7:30 PM
Aztral Folk is an experimental fusion band based in Tucson, Arizona. The group merges a range of musical styles from gypsy jazz to Mexican folk in a blend they call Ethno Psychedelic Fusion. The lead singer, Kiri, is one of the most original and versatile voices to come out of Mexico in recent years, integrating everything from Tuvan throat singing, to operatic voice production, to the guttural Louis Armstrong growl. The band members hail from both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. They mix the melodic lines of the cello, the punch and groove of the electric bass, and the energetic beats of the drums with Kiri’s multi-dimensional voice to create a journey of song that is inescapable, rustic, and otherworldly.

Traveling within different human perceptions and dimensions, integrating folkloric elements, using any kind of kachivaches (random things) to create sound, dissolving generational gaps, and entering fearlessly into a romance with music in all of its many forms – that is how AZTRAL FOLK arrives, using all of these elements to create an amalgam of colors, a rainbow of sound.

Event begins at 7:00 PM
Edgar Cayce (1877 - 1945), was dubbed "the Sleeping Prophet" and "the Father of Holistic Medicine" because he was able to bring forth incredible healing information from a deep, self-induced trance. All he needed was to be given the subject to be discussed, or the inquiring person's name, address, and whereabouts, by a conductor to make suggestions and ask the questions, and a stenographer to take it all down. Almost every day for forty-two years he had out-of-body journeys in order to answer questions covering an immense range of subject matter. He could do this at any time, any place.

Persons from all walks of life came to him for help or advice. Among them was a movie producer, an actress, a top steel magnate, a U.S. Senator, a Vice-President of the United States; parents, the sick, the lame, the disturbed. His extraordinary trances also gave in-depth information and guidance on our relationship to God, past lives, the laws of cause and effect, the idea and ideals of an Atlantis, and the history and future of humankind and the universe. He also made numerous prophecies that are just now beginning to prove true.
