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’.

Motown, Soul & Oldies

“Motown” is both a style of music and a label; in fact, no other label (with the possible exception of its grittier ’60s brother, Stax) is more identified with the sound it produced. Although Motown started as a straight R&B label and later moved into genres from Psychedelic Soul to New Jack Swing, “The Motown Sound” as it’s usually understood by fans and historians.Most Motown songs were written on piano and based on a piano riff, although there were occasional ballads that broke the mold (the Temptations’ “My Girl”).

The Divided Island

The island of Hispaniola is divided in two by an invisible line cutting down its central mountain range. On one side is Haiti, the other the Dominican Republic: one colonized by the French, the other by Spain. . It was home to the first–and only–successful slave revolt when Haiti rebelled against France in 1791. For decades, Eurocentric elites in the Dominican Republic have painted Haitians as inferior and threatening. Today, there is an uproar around the issues of Haitian immigration to the D.R., and politicians who are lobbying to build a wall between the two countries.
Despite the conflicts, Dominicans and Haitians are linked by deeply interwoven histories, economies and cultures. The songs are always performed in Haitian Kreyòl and typically celebrate the African ancestry of the Afro-Haïtian masses. Vodou is often implemented through the procession. The genre was imported to the Dominican Republic , where it is known colloquially as Gaga. Follwoing is an unique mix of old, and new songs featuring from Tabou Combo….to Luis Vargas.
