Felabration 2017

Fela Anikulapo Kuti would be 79 years old 15th of October, if had he not died from complications of AIDS in 1997. As the inventor of the enduring and influential Afrobeat music style, the composer of an enormous body of music, and one of the bravest political voices in 20th century African music. A powerful new generation of Nigerian musicians has emerged in that time, and the music they now champion has been dubbed “Afrobeats,” an appropriation of the name Fela gave his original sound during its heyday. The youngest artists on the scene today have no direct memory of Fela, though his legacy is impossible to escape. In this program, we hear from current day Nigerians from multiple generations and genres—fuji, juju, hip-hop (Afrobeats) and highlife—on how they remember this musical giant, and how they reckon with his complex and challenging legacy.

New Look of the Studio by Shipra

Gentle, yet energetic Shipra Raman has joined us as a volunteer, not as a content producer or journalist but as an architect. Hailing from Lucknow, and currently residing in New Delhi, in close proximity of Sri Aurobindo ashram, Shipra was looking for opportunity to come to Auroville, and experience it on her own skin, and contribute with her skills.
For us – AurovilleRadio she designed a new, fresh, and more people (and sound), friendly environment of our recording studio in Town Hall.

Nalaikki Fair – Can of Worms

TLC offered, as usual, a theater play, humorous twist about the latest Fertile Forest chaos – Can of Worms. And as usual, the play was a great success with abundant laughter of the audience.
The whole Nalaikki Fair, a community traditional celebration of Christmas, was a huge work of many – from YC staff, volunteers (different ways), musicians, performers, cooks, …. Johnny’s tea stall … and of course the excellent MC Jesse and Sushan
and surely without a proper sound of Matthia we would not be able to hear much.

At the same time tones of delicious food was cooked, giant butterflies were parading trough the Peaceful City, items were sold, games played, …performace of kalaripayattu and capoeira of Ginga Saroba……
