Hindi Dub

Jungle Weed is the nom de Dub of Jules Deville from Toulouse, France. He has traveled extensively throught India, seeking enlightenment & inspiration for his Dub crafting, merging Electro-Dub seamlessly with Indian music.


"On the west bank of the Ganges, in the ancient city of Varanasi, a fire has been burning for thousands of years. The most sacred place in the world for Hindus, the city of Shiva. It is believed that if a person's ashes are scattered here, then his soul will eventually reach Moksha (the definitive release from the perpetual cycle of rebirth).

Harishchandra Ghat (named for a legendary king) is one of the two ghats burning at Varanasi. The site of Varanasi is a hive of activity, a city that has never slept for more than 5000 years. The energy that reigns on this shore carries a deep serenity, devoid of any sorrow, because the mourners laugh as the bodies are wrapped in a shrouds & carried on bamboo stretchers in the narrow alleyways to be cremated there.

The Hindu attitude towards death is not an attitude of loss, but rather the idea of leaving behind the worn-out body, as one would throw away clothes hopelessly worn. The body is merely the vehicle of the soul.

Some are here to watch while drinking tea, others are here to meditate in front of the flames, to smoke on a chilom, to talk to some babas, old sadhous aghoris, hermits, or itinerants about life & death. These elders have renounced the material world to attain spiritual liberation, living both outside as well as still among society."
