582 drummers BEAT world record

The efforts at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, sanctioned by Guinness World Records, beat the previous record of 533 set  by a group of U.S. drummers in 2006. The record attempt was organised to increase awareness of multiple sclerosis and succeeded in raising £20,000 for charity.Among the drummers was Don Powell, of 70s glamrockers Slade. He said: 'I was performing in Budapest on Sunday but I just had to get back here for this event, especially in my home town - it's amazing.'I'm so happy we smashed the record and we've set a very high target for them to beat.'I find it fantastic that musicians now have a voice and can get involved in something as wonderful as this record.Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1199480/Now-thats-massive-hit-582-drummers-play-way-new-world-record.html#ixzz0NgxvzYQc

WORLD SOUND HEALING DAY

"The Sound Heard Around the World"
Sounding an "AH" for planetary peace!

WHAT: World Sound Healing Day-The Sound Heard Around the World. Every February 14th, people throughout the planet join together with their intentionalized sound to project a sonic valentine of love & appreciation to Gaia, our Earth Mother. We tone the heart sound "Ah" for a minimum of 5 minutes, and of course longer if your schedule permits. Often people will gather groups together and facilitate this toning experience in their respective communities. If possible, we ask that you take at least 5 minutes to tone at 12 noon Eastern time, and as always, we encourage the sounding of the "Ah" by yourself or with a group at any time during the course of the day.
On World Sound Healing Day, sound healers, meditators, peace activists and lovers of all humanity and sentient consciousness send a Sonic Valentine to the Earth with the heart sound "AH" filled with the intention of Peace and Love! (visit: www.healingsounds.com to for more information
