Estas Tonne

ESTAS TONNE’ IS A CHARISMATIC BEING WHO IS COMMITTED TO THE ARTISTIC EXPRESSION AND TO THE AUTHENTIC UNFOLDING OF MUSIC.
AUTHENTICITY AND SELF-RENEWAL MAKES HIM EXPLORE THE INDIVIDUALITY OF SOUND AND THE POSSIBILITIES OF HOW THE SOUNDING SOURCE CAN CREATE A SPACE THAT ARISES CREATIVELY AND THAT IN THE SAME TIME ALLOWS THE LISTENER TO MOMENTARILY ADAPT IT – FOR THE PURPOSE OF WELLBEING AND FOR THE PURPOSE OF A SHIFT.
BY TRAVELING TO COUNTLESS COUNTRIES AND PLACES ESTAS TONNE FINDS HIMSELF IN SEVERAL CULTURAL REFERENCES WITHOUT IDENTIFYING HIMSELF WITH A SINGLE NATION OR COUNTRY, RATHER WITH THE CULTURAL RICHNESS OF THE WORLD. HIS MUSIC IS THEREFORE A REFLECTION OF MANY APPROACHES. A FUSION OF CLASSICAL STRUCTURE, TECHNIQUE OF FLAMENCO, ROOTS OF GYPSY, CHARACTERISTICS OF LATIN AND ELECTRONIC SOUNDSCAPE – A VARIETY OF STYLES FLOWING INTO EACH OTHER ALMOST UNNOTICED AND SHOWING UP AS SURPRISES IN A HARMONIOUS STRUCTURE OF SOUND, REACHING OUT DIFFERENTLY IN EACH PERFORMANCE, YET ALWAYS IN UNIQUE FORM AND MELODY.

Luis Paniagua

Performing a concert of “new ancestral music” - mystic spiritual music, without any concrete tradition or religion, that communicates directly with the soul, transmitting the universal language of love, truth, beauty and purity. it is a synopsis of Luis´s experience of 40 years of performing concerts and 30 years as composer.
A turtoise shell, a pair of horns, a skin and seven gut strings, is how the invention of the lyre is related in the greek mythology. This instrument accompanies Luis Paniagua since many years in concerts and recordings. in his hands it becomes an instrument that conjures music from east and west, sounds of the ancient mediterranean and other ancestral cultures.

Pepe Danza

Pepe has occasionally been called by the media “extreme multi-instrumentalist” and the “embodiment of world music”. He started his musical journey at the early age of eight studying guitar. by the time he was thirteen he was already playing pop and rock music semi professionally. after years of wandering the planet, studying, performing and practicing different traditional music and instruments (sitar and bansuri in india, brazilian percussion, african djembe, guitar in south america and spain, etc.), as well as jazz and rock/pop music, he landed in japan, where he lived for three years dedicated intensively to the study of shakuhachi. He also deepened his study and practice of buddhism, started in north america and continued in india, with extended stays in zen temples. “I live from the deep conviction and experience of the fact that music is a powerful transformative force, and that humanity and our dear planet earth are ready for a shift to a higher frequency. i believe music plays a major role in that shift, and i am here to serve that work, in whatever way, whichever place i am called.”

Mitsch Kohn

Mitsch is a soundmystic who creates his music intuitively in the moment he is playing. In his very unique performance style he explores new musical paradigms creating new age and minimal based meditative instant composing, from silence into sound into silence. These piano-based trance-journeys guide listeners into states of deep connection and can be realized as a journey into a higher consciousness. New perspectives might occur and the pacified heart will bath in silence and relaxation. See more photos and other events by this presenter

Nadine Ruiter

Nadine is passionate about the practice of Yin Yoga, in her own experience and as international teacher. She was certified by Sarah Powers and inspired by many other teachers.
​Yin Yoga is an inside journey through the body. It’s finding stillness within and can be a meditative form of yoga. Most poses/asana’s focus on the lower part of the body, where we all hold a lot of tension by spending so much time sitting in chairs all day. In Yin Yoga we get into the pose and stay there 3-5 minutes, sometimes even longer. By putting temporary, stationary stress on the body we reach the deeper layers, the connective tissue and the fascia which are not affected during the active forms of yoga (yang) but are both needed to find balance.
