Who we are

We are passionate musicians, and lovers of traditional Indian culture & music.

Anand

I am born to a musical family, from the city that belongs to the Benares Gharana. We grew up surrounded by iconic masters. From the age of four I started singing, and from the age of nine I began playing sitar. Music is my life.

3. In which language do you provide your events

All events will be provided in English. If language is a problem, and you prefer Dutch language translations, you can contact us to discuss the suitability within the setting for the event.

4. What is an “authentic” Mantra?

We focus on traditional Indian music and carry forth traditions coming directly from qualified practitioners who are living within Indian Guaranas.

Our mantras derive from versions traditionally played within Indian temples and societies, mostly from areas around Uttar Pradesh. Although we recognize the value of non traditional or “westernized” versions of mantra; we see mantra having its greatest meditation and healing powers when sung in traditional Sanskrit and in Indian Languages, and with this. Indian music is at its heart.
