63rd Republic Day 2012 (Review)…. Presentations of India’s Culture…

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on January 26, 2012

Assam showcased its enthralling Bhortal dance, while the Punjab tableau adorned the larger than life figure of Sher-e-Punjab Maharaja Ranjit Singh atop the Lahore fort. (Rec.: Goa, Nagaland and Sikkim are other states who showcased their cultural heritage.)

Following the tableaus, 21 young brave hearts who won the national bravery awards drove through the Rajpath in gypsies to a huge applause following which 1,200 students enthralled the spectators with a spectacular performance of various dance forms.

Students between the age group of 12 years to 20 years from West Bengal, Orissa, Delhi and other states performed five cultural programmes during the parade.

A folk ritual from Tamil Nadu to please the goddess of health and rain, fisherman dance from Maharashtra and a ritual related to Odisha were among the highlights of youngsters’ performances.

Based on the ideals of meaningful education of Mahatma Gandhi, students of Kendriya Vidyalaya in Delhi’s R K Puram presented an item on mass literacy. Through their song and formation they invoked a world where every person is educated in letter and spirit, where everyone would touch the height of prosperity and enlightenment.

Students of Government Sarvodaya Vidyala in Hastsal brought the colourful ‘Kodiyancha Karavan’, a folk dance of Maharashtra fishermen while another group presented ‘Karagam’, a folk dance of Tamil Nadu which originated as a ritual dedicated to Mariamman, the goddess of health and rain.

Another performance was that of ‘Thakurani’ — a combination of ‘Animal Dance’, ‘Ranapa Dance’ and ‘Jodi’ — which is connected with the religious procession of Thakurani Jatra in Ganjam district of Odisha.

‘Gudum Baja’, a traditional tribal dance in Mandla and Shahdol Districts of Madhya Pradesh, was also showcased during the parade.

Heidelberg: Musik kann akuten Tinnitus heilen

mp Heidelberg - Die Frequenz des Ohrgeräusches bestimmt den therapeutischen Musikklang. günther gumhold / pixelio.de

(vm/mp -26-01-2012) Fiepen, Brummen, Rauschen – jeder Patient hat einen subjektiven Tinnitusklang im Ohr. Ist die Frequenz des Tons erst einmal erkannt, kann eine bestimmter Musikklang die unangenehmen Geräusche quasi abschalten.

Das Deutsche Zentrum für Musiktherapieforschung in Heidelberg hat eine der erfolgreichsten Musiktherapien für Tinnitus entwickelt. Kontrolluntersuchungen zeigen, dass rund 80 Prozent der “chronischen” Tinnitus-Patienten nach der Musiktherapie eine deutliche Verbesserung ihrer Beschwerden bis hin zum völligen Verschwinden der Ohrgeräusche erreicht haben.

Das Deutsche Zentrum für Musiktherapieforschung sucht aber noch Teilnehmer für eine klinische Studie. Mehr unter 06221 -79 63 961 oder miriam.grapp@dzm-heidelberg.de.

63rd Republic Day of India: The role of dance as a (shared) global language… on flight AY 021 Helsinki to Delhi

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on January 26, 2012

Take-off to Bollywood!

written by Helena Kaartine

I was just enjoying a bit of a foray into the internet and social media world when, suddenly, a greeting flashed up at the bottom of my screen. “Moi,” it said. The word, “hi” was thoroughly Finnish but spoken by a former member of our cabin crew from Mumbai.

We said a quick hello and compared our rosters. I had a spell of no shifts coming up, marked with a long row of OFFs on my roster. ”Wow, take off and come here. Stay with us and do a course or volunteer or something. Too many offs doesn`t suit you!” he replied.

His reply made me smile and reminded me of something an Indian acquaintance once said about his home country; Indians might be separated by a multitude of languages and culinary traditions, but one thing they all have in common is the warmth of their hospitality. I thought that was beautifully put.

The idea began to grow wings and our messages were rapidly flying back and forth across the information highway. I nodded and shook my head in proper Indian style to express my enthusiasm as I listened to my friend talk about the unifying impact of Bollywood on the Indian nation. We also discussed the role of dance as a shared global language. I didn’t voice my suspicion that we reserved Finns might well find it easier to master Hindi and Marathi than to get our hips moving.

As our flurry of communications began to wind down and I had a chance to draw breath, I suddenly recognised what I was feeling – it was most definitely a strong sense of joy. An emotion that is rarely associated with either of our countries, but is demonstrably very much alive in both.

And there we had it, a Finnish-Indian, or should I say Findian, grand plan and instead of a row of OFFs, my roster now said “Take-off to Bollywood!”.

Before my keyboard had a chance to cool down, I phoned a colleague who is familiar with the company slogan “Designed for you”, but who also has a genuine love for everything home-made, hand-made and genuine. Under these values, we brought together a group of colleagues, even drafting in a pilot, and set about turning that plan into reality on flight AY 021 Helsinki to Delhi. All sorts of funny things happened on our spontaneous trip but that is a whole other story.

Today, the 26th of January, is the Republic Day of India and we were extremely happy to Bolly through the woods to send you our greeting with respect and joy to spend this special day with you all over India!

New Orleans: Loyola celebrates Music Therapy Program’s 55th anniversary with new workshop

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on January 26, 2012

LOYOLA PRESS RELEASE – JANUARY 26, 2012

Loyola University New Orleans’ Montage Fine and Performing Arts Series presents Russell Hilliard, Ph.D., M.T.-B.C., L.P.C., L.C.A.T., in a workshop, “Hospice and Palliative Care Music Therapy,” on Saturday, Feb. 4 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. in the J. Edgar and Louise S. Monroe Library. Sponsored by Loyola’s Music Therapy Program, the workshop is part of the Montage Series and is free and open to music therapists, allied health professionals and students from Louisiana and the Gulf Coast region. Continuing education credits will be awarded to professional participants.

Hilliard, a noted expert on music therapy, is the vice president of operations for Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care, a nationally-based hospice company with an ongoing mission to find creative solutions that add quality to end-of-life care. He is also the founding director of the Center for Music Therapy in End of Life Care, which provides training opportunities for professional and student music therapists, social workers and nurses.

A widely published author on music therapy, Hilliard is the author of the book “Hospice & Palliative Care Music Therapy: A Guide to Program Development and Clinical Care,” and his research has been featured in a variety of scholarly journals including the Journal of Palliative Care, Journal of Music Therapy, Journal of the Society of Integrative Oncology and Music Therapy Perspectives, among others.

Music therapy, the clinical and evidence-based use of creating, singing, moving to, or listening to music within a therapeutic relationship, can be employed to treat a wide range of individuals, from those suffering from developmental disabilities and autism to older adults and patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

Loyola’s Music Therapy program, founded in 1957, is one of the oldest in the United States and is an approved program of the American Music Therapy Association. The curriculum provides students the opportunity to work as therapists-in-training while focusing on music therapy and research.
