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.

Surivivors

Featuring three African musicians who have created significant careers in the face of daunting challenges in their countries. Paulo Flores, champion of semba and kizomba in Angola, came of age in the midst of that country’s long post-independence civil war. He’s probably done more for Angola’s spiritual health during these difficult decades than anyone alive.
Emmanuel Jal faced still worse as a child soldier who escaped Sudan under horrific circumstances to become an internationally acclaimed singer and rapper. Today, he must watch as his homeland–now called South Sudan–descends into another brutal, senseless war.
The masked man of Nigerian pop, Lágbájá, has created diverse, socially conscious music through a series of military regimes in his homeland, and has new advice for his countrymen in a fragile democracy.

Juju

King Sunny Adé was, in many ways, THE inspiration for what would become Afropop. Many fans in America first got hooked on Afropop (and African music in general) through the landmark 1982-83 tour by King Sunny Ade and his African Beats: the propulsive polyrhythms of traditional drums mixed with sophisticated guitar arrangements and pedal steel were like nothing they had ever heard. Topped by graceful choreography and the beaming presence of the “Chairman” himself, the effect was totally intoxicating.
King Sunny Ade is one of Nigeria’s greatest musicians, and a master of the spacey, polyrhythmic genre known as juju.
Just by the way for those who are coming from USA – He will be performing on this tour in New York at BAM Metrotech Commons at noon on Thursday 2nd of July within the Summer Festival.

Playlist
Eri Okan – King Sunny Ade
Baba Feran Mi – King Sunny Ade
Ota Mi Ma Yo Mi -King Sunny Ade
Suku Suku Bam Bam – King Sunny Ade

Joy, Aim in Human Unity

Yesterday’s meeting at Unity Pavilion of International Zone with presentations of pavilion groups was conducted with joy, high energies, optimism, and readiness to work. Meeting started with updates of International Zone Coordiation Team, and its subgroups reports on planning and development, security and protection, loop road, focal points of art installation. Out of over 200 countries on the planet today, less than a quarter are currently presented in Auroville. In order to follow The Mother’s vision with the work on human unity, International Zone is of utmost importance. Here’s the link to Suhasini landuse study.

World music&dance Vanaver Caravan

EARTHBEAT a Journey of World Music & Dance Members of the VANAVER CARAVAN, a Hudson Valley, NY, USA based troupe, shared super good vibes in Auroville this thursday Jan 30th, in Cripa Kalabhumi.
A mix of music & songs of old Folk traditions, Ireland, England, Philippines, Brazil, Israel, South Africa, Nigeria and more brought into a spirit of tolerance, love, sincerity and family, it really touched my heart.
A moving in movement troupe spreading waves of kindness convinced me ounce again that when warmth and generosity are there everything is.

Their mission :
“Peace is an ongoing process.We recognize that cultural and traditional differences can divide us.Our mission is to celebrate those differences through dance and music in an effort to unite the world and give hope to our communities.”
It’s definitely a success and this statement says it all.
