Events: - We went to a free screening of "ART4SPACE", a short film by Invader (the French street artist behind the space invader ceramics that can be seen in many cities worldwide). He was in town putting up more of his latest pieces, and we even got to meet him for an autograph of his "L'invasion de Paris" book. :) Free screenings continue everyday at Uplink from 10:00 to 22:00 until June 2.

- The next day we went to Uplink once again, for an event held by music writer Salam Unagami. We had met him by coincidence at the Delhi airport in February, and he said he was on his way to a festival of Sufi music. In this event he and his fellow travelers talked about and presented videos of many artists they saw at the World Sufi Spirit Festival. The most surprising, and one of the best, was an artist from Nova-Scotia (Canada) named Tahir Hussain Faridi Qawwal. See a clip below.

Music event: - I went to see Cibo Matto live at Liquidroom! Their band featured Oyamada Keigo (Cornelius) on guitar, Araki Yuko (mi-gu, The Cornelius Group) on drums, and Ohno Yumiko (Buffalo Daughter) on chorus, and a great bassist they probably brought from the U.S. (whose name I can't recall). That was an awesome show, about half of it from "Hotel Valentine" with the rest from "Viva! La Woman" and "Stereotype A", and also the great "Aguas de março"!
