What a utterly refreshing and enthralling musical experience, the likes of which we have not enjoyed, since WOMAD festivals. ( Speaking of which, why has WOPMAD to the USA for tooooo long .. hmmm )   Real musicality realizes in all kinds of earthnic settings, rustic, desert dusty, cityscapes, or jungly countrysides, all regularly extraordinary, from which the 1beat fellows arise. In this elegantisimo setting, we wandered and followed our eyes and ears through multiple musical atmospheres… perhaps feeling more ourselves like a flock of happy brrds or bees: invited and treated to Interactive musical playgrounds on patios or tree-shaded lawn, roving concerts ( arresting and tender oud + invocals at the Love Temple/ Garden, a Colombian gaita-led parade, calls and response percussives, loops,  and lively dances, reaching a happy apogee in an afternoon Garden Amphitheatre showcase ( encore pictured above) of four 1beat Fellows’ ensembles . The Love Garden, nicely spruced up …

The Montalvo Estate venue is in itself, musical and quite classically beautiful, elegant, spacious, forest and garden encircled, and thus fragrant.  The fellows resided there for two weeks prior to offering the fruits of their new collaborations in various pod-ensembles +smaller workshop rhythm, dance, and musical sections. 1beat Co-founder Chris + Corey ..

In its third annual iteration, a very passionate and open collective Spirit of 1beat’s mission was ever-present, in every interaction and musical moment. Intentional, from the heart of the musician as a person, and as a musicultural ambassador.  This Spirit was so Present, that days later I am chiming with it, feeling again just how Precious it was to be in the midst, and IS. This Spirit IS , and it was invoked by 25 young musicians ages 19-35, visiting and collaborating from 17 countries. View/Meet all the fellows, click this !…

Ultimately, we fell in love with e v e r y o n e .  Now that’s cultural diplomacy, thank you Department of State ... 3 cups of tea …  you know, with a Daniela + Ahamed + Blessing +  a shimmy shimmy shake.

So, there is a deeper wave in the world, added dimensions of seeing and feeling, beyond land and resource grabs, cultural colonization and clan-clashing  .. we know this .. and its seems to blossom naturally in the presence of collective intentionality open hearts +open minds … armature not armaments ? ..  pearls of water on the hips, not gun ships ?  Life beyond national/ized fears and separate schisms..

Around the ol worldOneradio corral … we ourselves believe in  B E A U T Y .. and the beats …

…and the stars make love to the universe … under blue skies, white clouds… musicalities from and for all earthnicities .. double rainbow higher fire …   que bebamos cultura !  and we’re like .. and we’re like ..  listen for the three discrete hours of worldOne whirligig 1beat field recordings, indamix on-air and online  … feel fine !
