Hello everyone,


Students in Social Career: Urban Management and Tourism Development at the IUT Périgueux - Bordeaux I, we have had the opportunity, through a tutored project proposed by our institute, to work with the NGO InMaLanka. A tutored project is a mission entrusted by an association or a company to a group of student who is supervised by a training organization.


In our case, InMaLanka asked us to organize an event to make them known and to raise funds. Funds that will be used for the benefit of the communities with who InMaLanka is working.


We decided to organize this event during two days during wich various activities on the theme of indianoceanic islands were organized.


On Thursday evening, we proposed the projection of a movie followed by an indian diner: Philippe Kastelnik came to introduce is movie Raag Varanasi which follows the Raag scheme, then the public discovered a typical indian buffet and enjoyed it with pleasure. 


The next day, a study day was held dealing with the question of the divided islands, the heritage and the ethnicity in indianoceanic area. On this day, we organized, with an other group of students, several conferences and movie screenings concerning the indianoceanic area, with a main focus on India, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Timor Leste and Singapour. This conference will be followed by a publication in the coming months.


This event was held in a good mood and welcomed a public curious and opened to the world! 


We would like to thank those who came to this event and the NGO InMaLanka.


Clément, Hélène, Morgane and Ninon

Because of the torrential rain that violently fell on Sri Lanka in December 2010 and provoked destructive floods, the population there is having a bad time. However, that is the moment InMaLanka chooses to invite you to have a good time. You are welcome to a concert organised by the association on Thursday, March 10th 2011, from 8 pm and 11 pm, in the friendly atmosphere of the Abracadabar.


Why? Because it is thanks to your participation that we will have the necessary funds for emergency programmes destined to the people who have suffered from the floods in Sri Lanka.


The programme of the night? To begin with, we will have sweet melodies and reassuring texts on sounds of dancehall, slam and reggae with SEBSEB. Then the group HEKAMIAH will sing their committed texts about the quirks of our society, on rock rhythms inspired by Noir Désir, Berrurier Noir, Nirvana, and No One Is Innocent, among others. As usual, all the money earned by the admission charge will be given to the NGO in order to finance its programmes in Sri Lanka, in India, and in Madagascar. So, come with all your friends for the good sound and for a good cause!

In 2011, good resolution rimes with good action. So let’s start this new year together with a first good resolution: to come and applause the music groups PEANUT and THE RACCOON MANEUVER who will play for the association INMALANKA at the Abracadabar.

Influenced by diverse musical styles from hardcore to flamenco, and also French song, PEANUT has a pop style that mixes melody and brass band. Its two musicians will make you vibrate with the sound of their guitars and their voices. Concerning the unique style of the three boys of the group THE RACCOON MANEUVER, it is definitely “Raccoon Roll” and will electrify the amateurs of the kind.

Rock or Pop? Pop or Rock? Why choosing? Since you will have both if you come and support our first concert of the year. For the other good resolutions of 2011, we leave you… the choice of the actions.

Of course, eclectism is good for health and we should practice it regularly… but we don’t always have the opportunity to do so ! This time, you have the occasion to come and pratice eclectism with us… we give you a chance to listen to very different kinds of music, because after all, we are very different people and it does not stop us from listening to and helping each other.


As some of you know, InMaLanka launches projects to new horizons and a concert marked by diversity seems to come at the right time. We offer to you Brazilian rythmes, melodies of rock mixed with folk and to finish with, a duo of rap/hip-hop ! Not to disturb too much those who usually join us, we will still spend the evening in the confortable atmosphere of the Abracadabar.

Flea market in Paris, 20th arrondissement - Saturday, June, 5th

Events-diverse 1067With a weather that will certainly (or at least maybe) be wonderful, it will undoubtfully be pleasant to wander in the area of Les Amandiers, in the 20th arrondissement of Paris.

Each year, a group of associations organise there a neighbourhood fair with a convivial lunch, shows, football tournament and other activities. But this fair includes also a flea market in which InMaLanka will take part, as well as you.

To take part in this event, you can come and meet us at our stand and you can obviously buy what will be for sale on our stand, since all the money earned during that day will be used for our programme in Sri Lanka. And, above all, you can give us objects, clothes, jewelry or other things (not to big, please!) to sell them to the profit of the NGO. This is very important because without those donations, we won't have much to sell!

For the donations of objects, you can contact us on Facebook or come directly to our stand on the day of the flea market. Thank you very much and see you soon!

Address: Rue des Amandiers et alentours - Paris 20e
Métros Père Lachaise et Ménilmontant
