Towards the end of the first hour we paid homage to Dr E, the conjure man and Santero, as well as asked for healing energy to be sent towards Donald Michael Kraig, author and teacher, and Morning Glory Zell, Oberon’s beloved wife. Dr. E died of a heart attack early last week, and both Donald and Morning Glory are in hospital battling complications with cancer.

Dr E, as Hyperion, guested on an episode of the Pagan-Musings Podcast in January of 2011. He joined RevKess and KaliSara to talk about the magick of men who love men and his tradition The Unnamed Path.

Donald Michael Kraig is the author of numerous books and articles, including Modern Magick and Modern Sex Magick. He has been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer.

Morning Glory, the beloved wife of Oberon Zell (founder of the Church of All Worlds) is an avid devotee of the Goddess. She paid KaliSara and RevKess an unexpected visit while they were interviewing Ariel, the editrix of The Green Egg, and Oberon in an episode of Pagan-Musing Podcast in June 2011. She spoke of her Goddess statue collection and Goddess retreats. She entered the ICU with kidney failure and dehydration related to recurring battle with cancer.

Musica Pagani Video Bonuses #2: Globe Trotting

MPBTRadbannerIn the first posting of the MP Video Bonuses, RevKess treated you to a collection of New Age/Pagan rap and hip hop music. Now he’s going to go globe trotting and bring you foreign language videos.

First out the gate is Faun with “Diese kalte Nacht” from Von den Elben. 

Though the Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel does have permission to play this next group, and it does not contain any lyrics, it is still a good match for a collection of videos from around the world. Omnia’s “The Sheenearlahi Set” live recording from a concert in Cologne, Germany. You can find this on Omnia’s Live on Earth album as well. 

RevKess was recently listening to a new program on his local community radio station, KZUM, and discovered some really different First Nations music with a club flavor. A Tribe Called Red was featured at the end of one of the episodes of The Language of Music. Here is a sampling of their music for you enjoy.  Here is a live “in-studio” recording from Studio Q. 

Corvus Corax is a favorite of Murf’s over on Murphy’s Magic Mess on KZUM. She let RevKess borrow their Sverker CD this past weekend. Here is the title track in a live performance. 

Alash Ensemble is Tuvan throat singing with instruments. They have been on tour in the US and during their visit to Lincoln, NE they stopped by KZUM and one of RevKess’s local stores, Bodhi Imports. Here is their tribute to the Anasazi. 

A little blast from the past for RevKess, he learned this song while attending a public high school. His mixed chorus did a concert that included songs in French, Latin, and Hebrew. This is Dundai, a children’s dance. No lyrics to this video, but it certainly is fun. 

That does it for this Video Bonus from Musica Pagani. Hope you have enjoyed!

Extra Special Bonus Video

While browsing around preparing for this posting, RevKess came across the concert video of Gregorian – The Dark Side of the Chant 2011 tour. Pop music done in the Gregorian chant style with epic instrumentation. 

Murphy’s Magic Mess, Summer Solstice/Super Moon 2013

ad bannerToday on KZUM‘s Murphy’s Magic Mess, Murf, *K8, and Phil celebrated the Summer Solstice and the Full Moon. *K8 diligently typed up the play list as we were going. Summer Solstice celebrations have been going strong all around the world. Doreen Valiente was honored in her place of birth with a “blue plaque” that declares her the “Mother of Modern Witchcraft.”

Click the plaque to see a video of the commemoration.
