Singing Festival 2015 (DAY 1)

The Auroville Singing Festival 2015 was organized through Community Cultural Colors. The first day saw the Masters of Ceremony, Jeremy and Amara, engage with the audience by introducing the musicians and reading out some haunting translations of song lyrics. The music flowed, moving through differing genres and languages and carrying the audience through varying terrain with the performers. The last song was a beautiful ode to Led Zeppelin and saw the event end on a high note.

It was particularly enjoyable to shift from Odiya folk music to groovy Jazz from the 1930s. The lights dimmed and brightened according to the moods and the general energy was relaxed and stimulating. Here you can listen to Tamil song flute, some American song guitar and a whole lot of other tunes from the first day.
