This is a live event which will be live streamed via the Framer Framed Youtube channel.
Join us for a joyful evening of food, music, song, dance and conversation as we celebrate ways of collaborating, sharing, and living together! le thinnai kreyol presents an evening of creole commensality and conviviality.
Since May 2020, when Ari Gautier and Ananya Jahanara Kabir co-founded their online platform le thinnai kreyol for multicultural, plural, and creole Indias, they have gathered over 4K followers for their weekly live broadcasts. Now, they channel those energies back to in-person gatherings. Can the potentially infinite reach of ‘online’ create a closer connection which ‘in-person’ gatherings enable?
At Framer Framed, Amsterdam, Ananya and Ari will bring together artists from the Netherlands who have been virtual guests of le thinnai kreyol during 2020-21 to reconnect together with a new audience after a difficult two years. Musical guests include The Electric Hollers, Antonio Guzman, singer Raj Mohan, and a performance by Shailesh Bahoran.
Kreyol Warung is the final event of the le thinnai kreyol series in collaboration with Framer Framed and Atelier KITLV, on the theme of creolisation.
