Humans of Marrakech

I can’t wait for the updates every day. I love to read the stories and get to know strangers. I read this great quote once, “A stranger is just a friend you haven’t yet met,” and feel like it is my motto in the world. RIA/CE an artist's exchange.

The amazing history of this dance dates up to the time of Sriman Gauranga Mahaprabhu. Since many centuries as a customary practice in the Chandan Yatra festival of Puri, the Supreme Lord Sri Jagannath would always go out on processions along with His supreme devotee Lord Shiva in between the assembly of demigods. And at that time, as a tradition, the Devadasis of the Sri Mandir would also come to dance before Lord Jagannath for His pleasure. When Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu (who was Lord Jagannath himself assuming the form of His devotee) saw this, He desired them (the Devadasis) to dance in front of Lord Shiva as well, during the entire occasion, but unfortunately the priests objected to it.

Elles ont un rôle d’animation des fêtes, par leur savoir-faire musical et poétique. Cette vidéo de Chikha Khadija El Ouarzazia peut donner une idée de leur capacité à « ambiancer » une soirée : Il s’agit ici d’une troupe de chikhates, avec sa chanteuse, ses musiciennes, ses danseuses. Elles sont à la fois célèbres et très décriées, car elles sont jugées comme des femmes vulgaires, dans un jugement à la fois sexiste et classiste. Il leur est reproché d’avoir des mœurs dissolues, de se livrer en spectacle publiquement, notamment lorsqu’elles dansent.

The Ethiopian Fashion Tribe that turns Nature into Haute Couture

Well this is not that. In the Omo Valley of southern Ethiopia, the Surma and Mursi people don’t have glue guns, sewing machines, sequins or Sharpies to accessorise with. Inspired by the tools and textiles provided by nature alone, these ancient African tribes manage to create their own unique fashion that could easily rival and certainly influence the avant garde looks of Haute Couture Fashion Weeks around the world. These rare photographs of what is believed to be among the most unique and remote tribal people in the world, were captured by German-born artist Hans Silvester. Born in 1938, with an impressive career behind him, Hans has documented everything from the ravages of deforestation in the Amazon to the lives of women in the Great Indian Desert. The two tribes reaching the southern end of Ethiopia and the northern part of Kenya share a similar culture. P.S. Les Artistes Pour La Paix. Feminist Art Archive.

We Are The XX Feminist History TED Talk

Women have always been excluded from history, and that has got to stop, Kassidy Brown and Allison Rapson, co-founders of the media company We Are the XX, believe. At the 2015 TEDxBarcelonaWomen conference in June, Brown and Rapson said they're more than ready to roll up their sleeves and start rewriting. To do so, they'll use the four fundamental, universally applicable pillars they live and work by every day: 1. All people — men, too! We are unfamiliar with the story of female leadership.
