Asylum center phonecard party

This is what it sounds like when you help a group of Asylum Seekers DJ with the tracks from their phones.

This Phonecard Party initiated by Recyclart in Brussels is wonderful. And the writeup here gives lots more detail: Asylum center phonecard party | Princes of Ubiquity.

Mixed groups of arab adolescent men, african women, eastern european families with childeren and elderly people all participated in what resembled an unfamiliar wedding party. Each new song that was played introduced a different traditional or less traditional dance to the floor, which was then interpreted by the others, or simply denied in favour of cheerful improvisation.

I love this for so many reasons.
