Auroville women celebrate International Women’s Day by hosting traditional music, dance and ‘kolam’ (chalk art) competitions at Swachu Building at Bharat Nivas on 18 March 2017.
The United Nations theme for International Womens Day 2017, focuses on Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030. While the women in cities were occupied in either organizing or participating in various conferences and meetings, Women at Auroville have celebrated the day by promoting the local culture in three forms viz., music, dance, art by spreading the theme of gender equality and women civic participation in the society.
Grace, Usha and Mathi from Auroville have taken a lead role in organizing various cultural activities which includes music and dance competitions and also performances.
Bregette (from Hollande) has been at Auroville and serving at Matrimandir for five years now and in talking to the Auroville Radio she expressed her excitement of being part of this community in rendering various services mainly to the ‘art and culture’.
Mayawati, from La Farm has been the instructor for the ‘kolam’ art competition. Many young girls, students and women participated and filled the floor of the building with amusing and colorful art.
Litter Free Auroville is an initiative put forward in order to eliminate waste from Auroville by using creative means. The first day we witnessed performances where plastic and other waste products were used as instruments. The exhibitions also opens up an array of creative ways these wastes can be used innovatively. We also spoke to the organizers of the event who gave us further clarity on the aim behind the initiative.

Chloe performed an interesting piece of music out of old tapes and systems. Her performance was intriguing as she created music through waste. The performance was a potpourri of jazz music, conversations and other genres of music.
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. Its 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.
