The Tzigane Experience

By David Johanssen

In 2008, Almitri Tzigane began his sound odyssey by searching out the deepest origins of rock music. He went backward in music history, listening and reading, back to the early 1900s in New Orleans, an era that won his attention with its incredibly rich mix of gypsy jazz, blues, ragtime, and bossa nova. On Thursday, November 19, Shelter Theater presents a live concert, “Tzigane and Friends.”

Also on stage with Tzigane, Israel Chávez will play violin and percussion, bringing the same strength, dedication, and joyful sound. You won’t be sorry you shared this elaborate and elegant musical tapestry with Tzigane. Tickets are available at La Biblioteca and online at www.sheltervg4.com. 120 pesos.

Don’t miss your chance to see Tommy, the classic rock opera, on the big screen. Written by The Who and starring Roger Daltrey and Ann Margaret, the Chicago-Sun Times calls it, “An anything-goes phantasmagoria that pushes at the borders of good taste.” A psychosomatically deaf, dumb, and blind boy becomes a master pinball player and the object of a religious cult because of that. 50 pesos.

Everything is made of one non-dual consciousness. This oneness points to the idea that the universe and all its multiplicity are ultimately expressions of one essential reality. Sound intriguing? Continuing Tuesday, November 17, at 4pm, Ravi Nathwani will be hosting a “Non-dualism” series at Shelter Theater. This series of videos and discussions will focus on exploring the perspectives of non-duality and how they can be helpful in living life in an apparently “dualistic” world in a creative and practical manner. A deeper understanding of non-duality may help in increasing levels of peace in the mind while reducing the causes of suffering. The non-dualism series with Ravi will continue Tuesdays, November 17 and 24, at 4pm. 70 pesos.
