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.
