Informal performance and chat

Barking dogs, vans and motorbikes passing by, and even more noises were unable to spoil the mesmerizing sound of Pujasree’s voice.
An amazing ability to improvise.
The best place to play for spontaneity is in a cafe, not on stage.
What does it mean to be a woman in Indian culture?

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.

What is Petra?

We were hosting Uma and Torkil this morning in our studio, and the talk was on PETRA. What is Petra, where it came from, where is aiming….
Out of Retreat in 2015 many (working) groups has emerged, and one of them was Integral Entrepreneurship Lab, from which group Petra was born. The group is growing, expanding, merging … because their member feels the need that Auroville moves from urban village toward sustainable township, offering enough support for the human resources to join.
Petra ( a working name, homage to late Petra) would not only be a gateway or filter, but also a place where economy should become a catalyst to turn things around, and develop the city of Dawn; it aspires to be a meeting pong, borderline with holistical approach with inbuilt possibilities and opportunities for residents and visitors alike.
