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.

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:

He is that DJ that spins all

In this musical edition we are featuring multiple award-winning DJ Spinall(Sodamola Oluseye Desmond ), one of the main forces pushing afrobeats forward from behind the decks .
Earlier this year, Spinall released the excellent album Ten, which has birthed many dance floor hits and which features top-tier collaborations with Mr Eazi, Ice Prince, Sarkodie, Patoranking and more. He’s also recently dropped the massive “Olowo,” alongside Davido and Wande Coal.
And as he says in the interview” I really, really want to take the music around the world, not just in Africa. I want to take the music to Asia; I want to take the music to places that we have Africans at. We have Africans almost in every part of the world.Also, beyond selling my music to Africa, or introducing Africans to the music, I want to introduce the world itself to the music. I’m looking forward to EDM sessions, and sessions in other genres.Basically, I want to push African music but not leave behind the culture. Because I feel like the culture is what lead to the music.”
Dj Spinall is someone who really, really loves music, and he listens to everything. Is a big fan of hip-hop and he really loves R&B. he loves afrobeats, he loves afropop. He loves fuji music, he loves reggae, he loves dancehall. So basically, he is that DJ that spins all. That’s how we came about the name DJ Spinall.

Consciousness is not only power of awareness of self and things, it is or has also adynamic and creative energy .It can determine its own reactions or abstain from reactions; it can not only answer to forces, but create or put out from itself forces. Consciousness is Chit but also Chit Shakti.
