Keloha 2012 – Part 3: Sunday, July 8

Part 3 of 4 of a web-series about Keloha Music & Art Festival’s inaugural year. We were backstage with some of Canada (and the world’s) most-talented, emerging artists. The A-OK team literally put blood, sweat and tears into this weekend keeping up with all the activity (and shenanigans) and can’t wait to show you some of what we saw over the weekend.

Part 3 features Sunday’s biggest acts as we chat with AWOLNATION, The Sheepdogs, Dan Mangan and Hey Ocean. The lake gives the bands instant nostalgia, they love the smell of the air and the fruit in the valley. No one’s complaining about the heat!

Music by AWOLNATION, their song “Shoestrings”
and by Hey Ocean!, their song “Make a New Dance Up.”

“Land Awakening” Documentary in Penticton

Filmmaker Raul Alvarez

On Monday June 11th the Western Canadian premiere of the independent documentary by Mexican-Canadian filmmaker Raul Alvarez’ “Land Awakening” will be showing at the Okanagan College Lecture Theatre in Penticton.

“Land Awakening” is my personal journey to experience hands-on organic sustainable agriculture, turning into the discovering of alternative technologies and approaches to producing and gathering food.  The experience resolves to a spiritual reflection into our deep and sacred relationship with the Land.  It has been a long personal challenge to put at test my perseverance and commitment to the cause of healthy food and to my profession.”

Roused by his son’s WWOOFing (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) expedition to Spain, Raul set off on his own journey which eventually took him around the Mediterranean and back into Canada.

Through dynamic characters comes exploration into alternative ways of understanding terms like ‘agriculture’, ’tilling the soil’, ‘supermarkets’ and even ‘weeds’.  What we have come to depend on as ‘easy living’ is nothing more than huge profit for mega-corporations and pharmaceuticals;  in fact a supermarket is not ‘easy’ for the consumer!  It’s full of confusion and trickery and 9 out of 10 times you come out with way more purchases than you wanted, or spent way more money than you intended.

We’ve learned to survive without having any responsibility for our humanly consumptions or the impact we make on the earth we all live and depend on.  But there

are people out there who giving back and in turn re-building the foundations of a happy and healthy community where everyone prospers.  Call it a revolution, call it a global transformation – regardless,  filmmakers like Raul Alvarez are capturing it on film for the rest of us to see.  Once you can see someone else ‘doing it’ the idea of an honest and sustainable life doesn’t seem ‘utopian’ but rather attainable and ENJOYABLE!

Where: Okanagan College, Penticton Campus Lecture Theatre
