Felabration 2017

Fela Anikulapo Kuti would be 79 years old 15th of October, if had he not died from complications of AIDS in 1997. As the inventor of the enduring and influential Afrobeat music style, the composer of an enormous body of music, and one of the bravest political voices in 20th century African music. A powerful new generation of Nigerian musicians has emerged in that time, and the music they now champion has been dubbed “Afrobeats,” an appropriation of the name Fela gave his original sound during its heyday. The youngest artists on the scene today have no direct memory of Fela, though his legacy is impossible to escape. In this program, we hear from current day Nigerians from multiple generations and genres—fuji, juju, hip-hop (Afrobeats) and highlife—on how they remember this musical giant, and how they reckon with his complex and challenging legacy.

Mana Fashion Design Studio

The Mana Fashion Design Studio is a project created and run by a team of 3 Aurovillians, Claire, Rv, and Julie. Each one of them carries an artistic background (painting, graphic designing, music) and they take their inspiration from traditional arts and crafts from around the world. All their products are entirely hand made and every piece is unique with its' own delicate embroidery and special fabrics. At the moment, they open their studio (Located at Sukhavati) every Wednesday and Saturday between 9;30 and 12 for women to come and find the perfect piece of clothing or one of their gorgeous bags as well as interact with the artisans themselves. Mana has a website on which you may look through their designs and learn more about the whole project:

Auroville Papers

Much more than paper, Auroville Papers is a unit that works as a team where there is no hierarchy, but only friendship and sharing of creativity and responsibility. They work in true Auroville spirit.
This is one of the units that started in the early times when conditions were difficult, but nevertheless in time they have expanded and improved their work.
With the recent change of economy, Auroville Papers had to adapt, and this pushed the team to be more innovative. Now not only do they produce aesthetic stationery, but they have also extended their repertoire to include all sorts of handicrafts, such as: earrings, door screens, a large variety of decorative items, and also some art work. One item that particularly caught my eye was a beautiful sculpture of a white unicorn (see our video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqW332od3KA). I felt like I had just walked into an art gallery rather than a paper factory.
Because of the economic change Luisa remarked that we cannot be passive. We always need to be challenged in life if we want to keep ourselves well and active, and stay awaken. It is a work of challenges and creativity says Jean Jaques.
These words reminded me that “all life is Yoga”.

At the interview we have Jean Jaques, Herve',and Luisa

Presentation on GST

Mr. Rajendra Kumar P, an expert on GST from Chennai shared his insights at Unity Pavillion.

FAMC quaterly presentation

As per the new mandate, the FAMC must take initiative to meet with the community every 3 months and make a presentation of situations. This is was the very first such a kind of presentation. The presentation was conducted by Angelo, Chandresh, Lyle, Shaoli, Ayesha, Yuval, Amy, Ulli, Prabhu and Bindu (was out of station). The new FAMC team declared to the community what has been its objective for the past few months since it has taken charge. 1. Increase transparency and accountability, 2. Increase accessibility to DATA related to assets and finances, 3. To improve the efficiency in use of Collective wealth 4. To review and improve the maintenance system The new mandate given to the FAMC seems like a challenging one to which the new team is working diligently towards, but has made a suggestion to create a transition period for new teams to come into work given them time to understand each other as a group and also the the work set upon them this will save the team and the community huge amount of time and energy.

Pottery is the craft of making ceramic materials into pots or Potterywares, one of the oldest occupations of humankind that involves physical, mental and spiritual activity which can give one great pleasure to give shape to clay and birth of a new life with the help of a wheel and a kiln.
