Caravane Amoureuse en Ethiopie

Marc Vella – Caravane Amoureuse en Ethiopie
Documentaire et Discussion avec Antoine, un participant de la Caravane.
En trente ans, le pianiste nomade Marc Vella a parcouru avec son piano à queue plus de 200 000 km sur les routes et chemins de plus de quarante pays pour célébrer l’humain.
Concepteur de la Caravane Amoureuse, il emmène avec lui des personnes pour dire “je t’aime” aux autres et “conquérir amoureusement” leur cœur et leur âme.
En 2013, grâce à l’enthousiasme de plusieurs Auroviliens, une Caravane quittait Auroville pour un périple en Inde du sud.
En novembre 2015, la Caravane partait en Ethiopie. Des hauts plateaux au sud profond dans la «Vallée de l’Omo», l’un des derniers endroits au monde où des peuples vivent encore selon leurs traditions ancestrales, un voyage musical et une rencontre stupéfiante entre cultures africaines et occidentales au cœur de l’Éthiopie.

Orchestra Baobab

Life in Senegal has a soundtrack, and the Senegalese sound unmistakably has a Latin vibe. By tracing the bloodlines of slavery, arching from Gorée Island off the coast of Senegal, to North America, South America and the Caribbean, it is possible to begin to understand the long history in the relationship between Senegalese and Cuban music. Where people go, culture follows and where there is culture, there is the song that carries the story of its people.
Music in Senegal, with its strong structure of Latin flavor, continues to evolve with new musicians joining the international circuit every year.
Despite the differences in cultures, the music should feel like home to you. It’s the sadness, happiness, hopes and dreams that are a part of every human, a sense of longing and belonging that traveled throughout history and has become the sound of almost everything you hear on the radio and television. Orchestra Baobab is that sound directly from its source, a musical melting pot with the organic ingredients providing an undeniable flavor.
We are featuring in the beginning two songs from album to be released on 31st of March 2017 Tribute to Ndiouga Dieng….continuing with their early years…. Pirates Choice, Specialist in All Styles , Made in Dakar …

Lovers Rock 2

Lovers rock is a style of reggae music noted for its romantic sound and content. While love songs had been an important part of reggae since the late 1960s, the style was given a greater focus and a name in London in the mid-1970s.[1] Despite the name, lovers rock is not a rock subgenre or related to it.

'Accessible Puducherry'- Workshop

Satya Special School organized a Workshop on “ACCESSIBLE PUDUCHERRY – A STEP TOWARDS AN INCLUSION” on 21st October 2016 at Convention cum Cultural Center, Pondicherry University (A Central Univeristy). Department of Social Work has taken a profound initiative by hosting the event.

India has an estimated 70 million disabled people. Most of them remain confined to their homes due to complete lack of accessible infrastructure. Any attempt to travel, enter buildings, parks, shops etc can be impossible, unsafe or humiliating. They, therefore remain unseen, unheard, unaccounted and are rightly called – an invisible minority.
Accessibility has been one of the most neglected issues in the disability sector in India and is probably one of the crucial factors that can free up the potential and availability of opportunities for disabled people.

The Disability Act (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) was passed by the Indian Parliament in 1995. The Act mandates non-discrimination in transportation and the built environment. However, there has not been much progress so far on these aspects, in India.

Access and Accessible refer to the freedom of choice to enter approach, communicate or make use of a situation or environment without assistance and undue difficulties.
Keeping the above, the following objectives were focused at the workshop:

1. Create awareness on accessibility among various stake-holders
2. Current status on accessibility in Puducherry
3. Road map towards an inclusive Puducherry

And the distinguished Speakers for Accessibility workshop are:

Dr. Chdambaram for the topic ‘Accessibility in Educational institutions – Pondicherry University’ ; Mr. Alkahj for ‘African Perspective on Accessibility – CIAI Pondicherry’ ; Mr. Sudhakar for ‘Accessibility Aids and its Importance – Mobility India’; Dr. Srinivas Murthy for ‘Accessibility for persons with mental disability’ ; Ms. Susmita for Accessible Auroville and Dr. Gulam for ‘Accessibility in Developed countries’ – Pondicherry university

Surivivors

Featuring three African musicians who have created significant careers in the face of daunting challenges in their countries. Paulo Flores, champion of semba and kizomba in Angola, came of age in the midst of that country’s long post-independence civil war. He’s probably done more for Angola’s spiritual health during these difficult decades than anyone alive.
Emmanuel Jal faced still worse as a child soldier who escaped Sudan under horrific circumstances to become an internationally acclaimed singer and rapper. Today, he must watch as his homeland–now called South Sudan–descends into another brutal, senseless war.
The masked man of Nigerian pop, Lágbájá, has created diverse, socially conscious music through a series of military regimes in his homeland, and has new advice for his countrymen in a fragile democracy.
