Oriental Experiences Jazz

Despite numbers of events last night in Auroville many came to CRIPA in Kalabhumi to listen to Oriental Experiences Impresionistic Jazz where Hartmut, Rolf and Matt gave their concert.
Pianist Hartmut well know to home audience, continues his exploration in music, and for that occasion joined with Rolf on bass and Matt on drums. Impresionistic experiences of mellow jazz took us into different cultural spaces with its rhythm and color.
Although mellow, the impression was joyful, lively ... made all reluctant to leave.

Under the clear, starry night in the relax atmosphere of Solitude Farm with good organic dinner hard rock group Nazca, hailing from Reunio Island offered their music.
As Krishna invited us in the beginning " ...heavy rock, melodic with taste of elegance..." we heard solid rock with interesting lyrics .... And it was an unique opportunity as the bend flew in the day of the performance, and left Auroville shortly after.
