Hi, I’m dj Damaru. I’m mixing live from Kootenay lake in BC. It’s the first time that I have a radio show so I’m still defining/expressing what the show is all about. At this point, it will be a mixture of musical exploration mixed with yoga/meditation ideas, on every Tuesday 1600 UTC
I use the handle Damaru, as this is Shiva’s drum. I’ve been following the path of Kashmir Shaivism for over 20 years now while learning from different yoga and mediation lineage, so even dj’ing for me is part of the journey. The damaru is an hourglass-shaped drum which in the tantric tradition was built with 2 top craniums, connected together. Two skins are put on the cranium’s half and a ball connected to a string, attached to the center.
The evolution of the human race seems to be forgotten, buried below a load of consumerism. It feels like evolution should be at the center of our day-to-day activities or at least I’ve always felt like that. The term evolution revolution actually comes from an animated series, Aeon Flux, where the bad guy scientist creates a ray that would kill all the non-evolved humans and only leave the most evolved human on the planet.
Back in May of 2020 before I took a few months off from aNONradio, I did two episodes where we explored and listened to some 8-tracks. You might enjoy these episodes; I hold the microphone up to the player so you can hear the cartridge loading and program switching sounds of the machinery.
The two episodes start with an mp3 while I am still setting up, and then the fun begins. You will enjoy hearing a big hit single being split across two programs of the tape (a common flaw with 8-tracks), and me joke about how the wow and flutter was so bad it changed the key of the song (because it really did, haha! 🙂 )
Digging through my old playlists (which are available as 2015-2017 and 2018-2020) I found an episode from February 6th, 2016 made in honor of Maurice White who had just passed away in 2016. I think you will enjoy it too, as there are a lot of awesome rare album cuts, long jam sessions, and new material you may have never heard before from the kozmigroov funk band Earth, Wind & Fire.
Also contained in this episode is a snippet of aNONradio history, as I mention at the end of the episode the upcoming shows for the day, which was Saturday and so it was DGC, The Soundshow, IGWM (which I mention is my favorite show on all of aNONradio 🙂 ), and Asia Culture Adventure with Hong Tudou. Hey, that’s still pretty much the line up!
