A un certain moment de leur vie, nombre d'hommes et de femmes traversent une crise. Ils éprouvent des difficultés à assumer les tâches quotidiennes : ennui, incompréhension, douleurs physiques, tension nerveuse. Autant d'images et de souvenirs, de scènes étouffantes qui traduisent un réel mal de vivre. La médecine occidentale interprète le plus souvent ces symptômes selon des normes psychiatriques. Pourtant, la plupart de ces manifestations n'ont rien de pathologique, elles constituent une phase normale de notre évolution psychique.
Christina Pluhar and l'Arpeggiata invite you on a musical cruise that will take you from Portugal to Turkey, following the coasts of Spain, Catalonia, Greece, and Italy, caressed by the rocking of the waves and the captivating dialogue between traditional plucked instruments of the Mediterranean region the qanun, saz, Greek lyre and lavta, the oud and Portuguese guitar and the Baroque strings of l'Arpeggiata. Mediterraneo is truly a musical exploration of the Mediterranean Sea. The recording features the fabulous voices of Mísia, Nuria Rial, Vincenzo Capezzuto, Raquel Andueza and Aikaterini Papadopoulou who perform traditional tarantellas, sung in Greek. These folk pieces were a custom in the Baroque era in the Greek-Albanian villages of Calabria. Join Christina Pluhar on this unique musical odyssey. The deluxe casebound edition of Mediterraneo includes a bonus DVD featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes recording sessions of Are mou Rindineddha, Sem saber, Hasapiko, and Tres sirenas.
Holotropic Breathwork is a practice that uses breathing and other elements to allow access to non-ordinary states for the purpose of self-exploration. It was developed by Stanislav Grof, M.D., Ph.D. and Christina Grof, Ph.D. . Holotropic breathing has some similarities to rebirthing-breathwork, but was developed independently.
In typical exploiteers fashion this German 1972 dramatic comedy [Girls Who Come to Munich] was bought from the European distributer by a U.S. exploiter[Omni Pictures] and released in North America in 1976 with a terrible english dub and new sexy poster and totally new "Americanized" set of film credits. This of course was to fool audiences into thinking that this was a home grown Hollywood softcore sex comedy. Christina Lindberg & Ingrid Steeger were unknown in the states and not considered commercial assets so their names were changed along with the director, producer and the rest of the cast. Omni also added a teaser "Starring the Winners of the 1976 International Swingers Competition" which meant absolutely nothing. This "new" dubbed edited version was later distributed by Something Weird Video.
The soundtrack to Christina Aguilera's silver screen debut Burlesque shines the spotlight on Xtina, who is in full-bore diva mode – a return to the splashy swing of Back to Basics after the robotic R&B of Bionic. Of course, many of her collaborators from Bionic remain on Burlesque: Tricky Stewart is responsible for the glitzy dance, and Sia Furler co-writes the ballads, their contributions slotted between two Cher songs designed to push the narrative forward, two Etta James covers, a slice of heavy camp in the mincing "But I’m a Good Girl", and a Nicole Scherzinger co-written interpolation of Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People" that provides a bewildering conclusion to this soundtrack. Some of this stuff is quite good, particularly when Christina swings her hips to Etta's lead, bringing to mind the zest of "Ain’t No Other Man".
