JAN-FEB FAVORITE MUSIC

Every few months I will be placing various music on the right hand sidebar and eventually include some of them in the print. Below is a a track from the EDM (Electronic Dance Music), Heavy Metal, Hip-Hop and Ambient, Christian and Pagan genres.

PORAT – Shiva Tandava Stotram
Porat is an Israeli Producer that creates Ethnic infused Psy-Trance. This song is a Hindu hymn that describes Shiva’s power and beauty, both in creation and destruction

MY SLEEPING KARMA – Moksha
My Sleeping Karma is a German Psychedelic Instrumental Rock band. Their music has a mixture of ambient and melodic pieces infused with a heavier but subtle feel. A multilayer compositions that take the listener on a journey between rock and ambience. Moksha, means freedom from Samsara (the cycle of rebirth). It is the liberation from the material world and the end of suffering.

TRUTHSEEKAH – Meditation
Truthseekah is a Visionary and Esoteric Hip-Hop artist from Alabama that brings a fresh feel to the Hip-Hop genre. Lryrics dealve into the spiritual and esoteric side of reality.

ANILAH – Medicine Chant
Based in the Selkirk Mountains of Western Canada Anilah entwines shamanic drumming and chanting into an etheric sound great for meditation. She uses the voice as a healing modality and creates music which aids in cathartic and transformative experiences.

JESUS CULTURE – Holy Spirit
California based Christian youth ministry group who plays Worship style music that  is to “ignite revival in the nations of the earth; to compel the Body of Christ to radically abandon itself to a lifestyle of worship; to encounter His extravagant love and raw power.” Probably one of my favorite Christian songs outside of Metal Christian bands.

LINDIE LILA – We All Come From the Goddess
Cape Town, South African singer/songwriter Lindie Lila creates soulful and folk style music to honor the sacred form of the goddess. This is one of my favorite versions of “We All Come From the Goddess” outside of the Metal version by BETRAY MY SECRETS.

Good Eats: Houston: Doshi House

20180127_180139.jpg

NAME: DOSHI HOUSE
CUISINE: VEGAN/VEGETARIAN/COFFEE & TEA
LOCATION: 3419 Dowling St. Houston Texas 77004

HOURS: Mon-Fri 8am-8pm, Sat 11am-8pm, Sun 11am-5pm
PRICE RANGE: On the Cheap!

Just a stones throw away from the Montrose District is a quaint and welcoming little coffee and dining spot called Doshi House. Located in Third Ward, Doshi House might be missed if your not paying attention. What looks like an abandoned building houses a very chill spot off the beaten path.

The vibe in there is relaxing and inviting. A mixture of Ambient Chill, Middle Eastern Trance and an eclectic mix of Soul music soothes anyone coming in for a bite to eat or meet others for coffee or tea. Even though there are clear signs of leaking ceilings Doshi House is in the process of renovating and expanding. Owner Deepak Doshi opened up the small cafe over six year ago to help expand his involvement into the community and is now growing the cafe to include a second story balcony.

Besides the chill music, ambient feel and artwork on the walls, is the food. Affordable and tasty. Whether you get a Tofu Masala Empanada with a Strawberry and Banana smoothie or if you’re there for their rotating menu each night, you can eat the “Vegan Not So “Butter Chicken”” on a Saturday or their Vegan Three Bean Chili on Wed., you will not want to miss. Maybe on your way out you can grab a coffee which is locally owned and operated by Greenway Coffee and a vegan chocolate chip cookie from Sinfull Bakery.

Fish Daddy Glass is the collaborated effort of “two guys looking to make great glass art” (aka Michael Fisher and Xavier Juarez) from the central Texas region.
