One Earth for All

It’s tune time!  I’ve spent way too much time listening on YouTube today to music videos from Alison Krauss to Yothu Yindi. Yep, I’m using some music and art ploys across these latest posts.  Perhaps this indicates an inability on my part to focus or to integrate everything into one coherent missive.  Or just indecision. No matter.  At any rate, the pieces are here. Feel free to chat about whatever strikes a chord.   Also–if you have suggestions for music dealing with the same concepts, please share them–comment and link away to your hearts’ content.  Hmm. We could make a music web. Indeed we could.  Who wants to weave?

    My cousin in Washington State introduced me to Michael Franti. My daughter threatened to throw the six CD’s out my car window if I played it one more time.

    His lyrics are wonderful.

      Oh Meg, Franti’s lyrics are wonderful. Another new musical artist for me! I hope your daughter has since relented on the cd tossing!

    This one always gets to me – both sad AND an affirmation of oneness.

    O, Val I have to agree with Eva, I find my time connecting to the earth to be very solitary. Which works okay for me, but it feels supportive to “meet” people like Eva who share a perception and ideology. I tend to check myself regularly and take corrective action, and it feels good to know that perhaps I may be on the right path since others are seeing the same things as me.

    I’ll see what I’ve got bookmarked, Eva. But here’s a thought – the more time we spend online listening to music, watching videos, etc, the more we are moving away from appreciating our natural world. Why? Because we’re not out there. Our eyes and senses are glued to something away from it.

    • October 21, 2010 at 9:34 pm

      Val, part of the point of this musical linking is to SHARE our awareness of how we are connected in a world in which many people do not even realize they are living biological organisms directly part of Nature–to explore and discover and find common ground. The idea is to communicate and support each other. I find it very stimulating, inspiring and movitating whenever I learn that artists like Leslie, Magda and Al (artistatexito) and I each have our direct individual experiences with the creative life energy in our art –and we can express and share this even though we all create in different ways. If we’re going to spend time online reaching out to each other this is one way to do it. Just because we’re ‘here’ now doesn’t mean we’re not connected to the nature. We can’t get away from it because of the reality of our ‘bodies’. I’m looking forward to whatever you decide to share to express your awareness/appreciation of Mother Earth. Grins..

    This is from Midnight Oil an Australian band the white fellow point of view. Peter Garret the lead singer was for a period the minister of environment and perhaps or maybe because of him the green party did get so many votes last election.
    BUT our beds are burning and we do have a rent to pay, still 23 years later.

    This is gypsy music and i find it very connecting to the earth

    • October 21, 2010 at 10:09 pm

      It got me dancing! LOL. Thank you, Clegyr Boia for introducing me more new musical territory.

  7. October 21, 2010 at 7:56 am

    Personal favourite – hope it fits in with the theme….

    • October 21, 2010 at 9:37 pm

      Oh it certainly DOES fit — imagine all the people—Yes, indeed, incomplete history, this is a wonderful share! Thank you.

    Thanks for the Yothu Yindu intro! I guess those of us who hail from the west stopped listening to our “tribal voices” thousands of years a go. What a pity. Makes me want to paint my body and dance. I wonder if the popularity of tatoos has something to do with reconnecting to a more elemental self?

      we still have a tribal voice we are all one dream

    • October 22, 2010 at 9:32 pm

      Tatoos are very interesting forms of art and expression. Perhaps the experience is a form of reconnecting–can’t see why not. Might have to ask some folks with tatoos.

    […] is for 47whitebuffalo who is creating a web of videos on her blog post ‘one earth for all’. She has some […]

    I loooooove Yothu Yindu (completely wore out that album many years ago). Thanks for the videos – I’ll have to think of some tunes (I’ll be back when I have more time 🙂 )

    • October 20, 2010 at 5:19 pm

      Gabrielle, thanks to Clegyr Boia posting the lyrics of one Yothu Yindu rendittion of a wonderful song, I’ve been exploring their music online. Such great energy combined with distinctive imagery–I find it all engaging. I so hope you do find some time to post your musical choices either here or on your blog casa with links from here to create a web.

    Wow! Thanks for the “Tribute To Animals”! I was all into that one as you might guess! Beautiful!!!!!
    The last one? Mishi45. What can I say? They got the earthy tribal beat going on. If I think about it, that sort of sounded like a busy day, here, only very much more primal!

    • October 20, 2010 at 5:16 pm

      LOL, oh Leslie, your positive energy is so infectious even online. Glad you enjoyed the Animals. One thing I find very interesting on YouTube is how people combine music with images of their choice. Always surprising. Hope you’re inclined to post a link/video your own choice of music/video after a busy day. Yes, anything that expresses YOUR connection to earth/nature.
