KALVI – Our Story

KALVI (Education in Tamil) was created by a group of educators engaged with Integral Education in Auroville. The unit focuses on researching and implementing games and activities for didactic purposes.
These games/activities are designed to nurture a child’s inner awareness.
KALVI is presently exploring and researching “Aurogames”, educational games developed by Auroculture. She arrived at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, in 1971, and moved to Auroville in the mid 1990s. She was asked by the Mother to create educational games, which she called “Aurogames”. Auroculture has given KALVI “Aurogames” to use and expand upon.
KALVI ‘s imminent plan is to develop educational materials to expand the six faculties of consciousness (thinking, seeing, hearing, speaking, vital and body). To make this work happen any support is greatly appreciated.

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’.
Finally Joshua presented one last original song, and the night was closed with an original Hindi poem by un unknown student volunteer.

Secret Agent

Today’s musical podcast features Tony Allen’s album Secret Agent.
Tony Oladipo Allen (born 1940 in Lagos, Nigeria) is a Nigerian drummer, composer and songwriter who currently lives and works in Paris. His career and life story have been documented in his 2013 autobiography Tony Allen: Master Drummer of Afrobeat, co-written with author/musician Michael E. Veal, who previously wrote a comprehensive biography of Fela Kuti.
As drummer and musical director of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s band Africa 70 from 1968 to 1979, Allen was one of the primary co-founders of the genre of Afrobeat music. Fela once stated that, “without Tony Allen, there would be no Afrobeat.”[2] He has also been described by Brian Eno as “perhaps the greatest drummer who has ever lived.”
