Hibiscus Festival at Well Cafe in Sve-Dame
A jam session with no ambition, but just for the joy of playing together exploring various styles. The main objective of the night was being together and having fun. Audrie sang and played the flute. Joel on bass, Philippe on guitar. Francois played on clarinet, on violin and an a self made string instrument similar to a medieval guitar. Gino on percussion.
The second half of the evening included an elegantly choreographed Fire Show by a young lady accompanied by Gino’s rhythms. This performance although completely improvised appeared totally in synchronization between the fire juggling and the drumming.
Djelan on midi-guitar, accompained by Suresh on drums, created an infectious beat which inspired people to dance and lose themselves in the music.
The various effects connected with the midi-guitar of Djelan enabled him to replicate the sounds of trombone, sax, and even flute, giving the feel of a full band playing.
The singer guitarist songwriter changed styles from soothing Bossa Nova to more spicy latino beats, and ended with Indian and Arabic flavours.

Eight young musicians from Marseilles, France, with their brass instruments played a variety of pop dance songs, and created a refreshing festive atmosphere.
Although the concert took place on a Monday evening, the youth and volunteers found the charming vibes irresistible and took to the dance floor.
The musicians were interacting with the audience with a light sense of humour. It was a surprise to find such a joyful concert at the Youth Centre.
This event came from an idea of Alan to see how some Aurovillian pianists would gather and share their music love… so Dominique, for the first time in public, Alain and Yaroslava shared their music with us. Music by Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Dvorak, Borodin, Chopin, Mozart and others.
