We knew the Gap-Fillers project people were on to something as soon as they announced their latest installment in the city: The Dance-O-Mat.

Ok, I should explain what Gap-Fillers Project is, first.

After the quake of Christchurch on February 22, 2011, many buildings had to come down in the city. Many places were deemed unsafe to live in. Many spaces had to be revamped and cleared. If you look at Christchurch now, you will notice there is a lot of empty spaces. A lot of gaps.

The Gap Fillers Project was started by people in the city who decided not  to leave these empty spaces morbidly empty as they were but to instead fill it up with art and creativity.

Dance-O-Mat is just one of their many innovation to fill up the gaps.

Ok this is a very cool fresh piece of music from India. We can’t tell you much about this song, because well, we don’t know a whole lot about these guys. But, yes, it is in English (read the subtitles, you’ll understand). It has 45 million hits in YouTube. And apparently everyone in India knows this song. And India has a billion people. Listen and go figure.
