Festival for the Guardian Deity

In the Auroville bioregion are many temples associated with the local deities which the villagers propitiate for sound living and greater harmony. One such deity is the Ayyanaar, who is the Guardian of the space, known for keeping negative influences at bay. One can identify this deity by the large red warrior sitting with his two consorts, prominently displayed on the roadside.
The custom of the villagers is to conduct festivals at regular intervals to keep the energy of the deity vibrant and alive. One such festival is the celebration of the 'Marriage day' of Ayyanaar with his consorts. This festival has been celebrated recently on April 24th. It is surprising to see that this day coincides with that of the Mother's Final Arrival day in Pondicherry, April the 24th. Coincidence or synchronicity!?! Just a play of the Divine, maybe!
So on this occasion, the village held an all-night play depicting the story of Ayyanaar in the local folk tradition. Here is the audio of some interesting parts from the 5 hour play.

New Talents to Auroville

Tristan, volunteering in Aquadyn as a software programmer who follows his passion of playing music by night.
He has an intense form of musical expression. Accompanied by his guitar he goes into improvised musical tangents reminiscent of the doo-op period. He very likely has the secret ability to scat.

Gino, with the ability to turn just about any object into an instrument of percussion plays along adding a necessary element of oomph.

Mix from the 70s

Feauring the best artists from and around the 70s, this mix will surely make you shake a leg. Crank up the volume, get loose and let the boogie do the rest. Tracklist (a-z) Blue Swede - Hooked on a Feeling CHIC - Dance Dance Dance Chubby Checker - Let's Twist Again Chuck Berry - Johnny B Good Earth, Wind and Fire - Boogie Wonderland Elton John - Crocodile Rock Elton John - Pliladelphia Freedom Elvis Presley - Jailhouse Rock George Benson - Give Me the Night Jerry Lee Lewis - Great Balls of Fire KC and The Sunshine Band - Get Down Tonight The Jacksons - Blame it on the Boogie The Jackson 5 - ABC Ritchie Valens - La Bamba The Trammps - Disco Inferno The Whispers - And the Beat Goes On Wham! - Wake Me Up Before You Go
