Open Mic night at Solitude Farm

An Open Mic night at Solitude Farm Cafe. Local grown organic food, and home made icecreams.
The event was warmed up by Rolf and Shanks with an instrumental jazzy Bossa Nova version of Autumn Leaves.
Joshua came on stage presenting a few of his own compositions.
The charm of the evening was brought by three young girls: Luna, Lola and Chandini whom told each a joke.
Then Devinj and Barnika sang together blending English and Hindi Pop songs.
Maytria walked on stage on his own, without a guitar, but only with his Beatboxing.
Meenakchi read a couple of original poems (in English) about love and life.
Rohit played a selection of popular Hindi songs.
Then it was the turn of Sudakar, a Solitude Farm volunteer accompanied by Maytria on Beatbox. Sudakar sang a couple of Hindi Pop songs of the ’90, a popular Tamil song and more.
The most festive atmosphere was created by the Akash Jacob Superstar quartet accompanied by Rohit on guitar. The Indian audience joined the singing, while somebody in the audience even kept the rhythm on a metal basket.
Preetusha, an internship architect student, read a beautiful original poem on ‘thought’ (in English).
Shanks and Rolf came back on stage for a couple more pieces, this time Rolf’s own compositions: ‘Fun Zone’, ‘Don Quixote and Dulzemia’, ‘Fruitstall’, and ‘Kids From Above’.

Women in Reggae

Today’s musical edition is about women in reggae. It is a glimpse into a moment in history, from 70ies and up, in which we celebrated the outstanding female voices of reggae music. Jamaica is, and probably will always be, a patriarchal society, but at this point in time the rise of women within the genre had become a notable, positive development.
Probably the best-known among Jamaica’s female singers is the trio called the I Three, who sang harmony vocals for Bob Marley and the Wailers from 1974 until Marley’s death in 1981. Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt and Rita Marley all had successful professional solo careers before joining up with the Wailers.
Apart from those three well known women , we feature many more from Susan Carol, Annette Brissett, Hortense Ellis…., and many more.

I-Threes – Many Are Called
Althea and Donna – Uptown Top Ranking
