We have the big pleasure to announce a very special music and incense festival happening from 10th to 12th October (Thursday to Saturday) at Pandatheater in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. In three evenings we will experience twelve great artists from all around the world  playing mostly solo concerts of various nature and style.  We will listen to European  and Arabic classical, to jazz, experimental and free improvised music. Additionally we will burn incense mixtures specially conceived for the occasion. Each mixture will contain eight different fragrances.  A multisensorial challenge of highest ambition. For guests who are particularly sensitive to smoke, this event is not recommended.

Meanwhile in Japan…

Nihon Shoki, a book of classical Japanese history, gives the first formal record of incense in Japan when a log of agarwood, a fragrant wood used in incense burning, drifted ashore on Awaji Island during the Asuka period in 595 CE, and was presented to Prince Shōtoku and the Empress Suiko. Shōtoku knew of incense burning from Buddhism, which had been introduced into Japan around 538 CE from China through Korea.

Dammar im PaNdA (Have a look above at: ‚Past concerts‘)

Vateria indica (Weißer Dammar), aus: William Roxburgh (1751-1815) u. Joseph Banks (1743-1820), Plants of the coast of Coromandel vol. 3 plate 288

Harz-Räucherungen, zum Beispiel mit Elemi, Olibanum oder Copal, haben nicht nur eine irgendwie esoterisch gefühlte, sondern eine handfest nachgewiesene antimikrobielle Wirkung auf luftgetragene Keime. Das dürfte auch für den heute nur noch selten verräucherten Dammar gelten. Der Pharmazeut Felix Bachmair führte 2013 eine Studie zur Luftkeimreduktion mithilfe von Harzräucherungen in zwei österreichischen Apotheken durch. Deren überraschend positive Ergebnisse kann man online nachlesen (über Dammar auf S. 15-19):

In der Krebsforschung wird den geheimnisvollen Kräften des Dammar ebenfalls nachgegangen. 2010 veröffentlichten Wissenschaftler aus Tokyo eine bahnbrechende Studie über das besondere antikanzerogene Wirkspektrum von Dammar aus der Pflanze Shorea javanica:
