Far Out Afrofuturism

Selection of some of far-out Afrofuturistic Music Videos
To see Afrofuturism in action is when music videos consider Afrofuturist aesthetics. Some of the weirdest, strangest, most popular and memorable music videos actually fall under the Afrofuturism umbrella: like Michael and Janet Jackson’s “Scream,” almost every Missy Elliott and Busta Rhymes video, Grace Jones,Here we are featuring some stellar Afrofuturist music videos , but keep in mind that this selection is merely the tip of the iceberg.
These particular videos showcase diverse subplots of Afrofuturism: from surrealism and space travel, to dystopians and love fantasies.

Petite Noir “Best” (Magical Realism)
https://youtu.be/7XvD1QN3enQ
In this stunning, otherworldly music video, Congolese
artist Petite Noir travels, by foot, to several otherworldly destinations. There’s a barren desert, harboring only beautiful souls that haunt him as he runs; a neon green forest of digital nature, and a foggy heaven where beautiful angels await, before he’s transported to a deeper spiritual state. By fusing magical realism with the beauty of Africa, Petite Noir illustrates a narrative where fantasy is juxtaposed against nature: emphasizing the notion that Africa is a place of wonders and mystery.

VOX POP on Summer

We, Yona and Leela, are two Future School students who came to do their first week of volunteering in the AV Radio. We learned to make play lists, edit recordings and for the day before our last we went to two schools in order to ask a couple people the same questions about a hot topic in Auroville at the moment, SUMMER!
No one can escape the heat, not even with the latest rains (which we are all extremely grateful) so we decided that instead of trying to forget about or ignore the weather, we will bring it up and see what people have to say.

Absence of love and fellow-feeling is not necessary for nearness to the Divine; on the contrary , a sense of closeness and oneness with others is apart of the divine consciousness into which the sadhak enters by nearness to the Divine and the feeling of oneness with the Divine. …In this yoga the feeling of unity with others, love, universal joy and Ananda are an essential part of the liberation and perfection which are the aim of the sadhana.
SRI AUROBINDO, On Yoga. II, tome I. part II, 8.
