Music as Meditation
The concept of "Music as Meditation" is based on the idea of creating a safe space, which supports the meditative aspects of music and pure sound. Meditation and healing are interrelated. Through deep relaxation, we gain access to our subconscious. Old memories may surface and pass, blockages may be released. As we perceive the music in a dreamlike state, we travel through soundscapes and inner landscapes that connect us to our centre. Different kinds of vibration affect different parts in us. As everything is vibration, it helps us to reconnect with ourselves and the surrounding nature.
Our music is a blend of eastern sounds, rooted in sacred Greek, Turkish Sufi and Indian traditional music, of mostly improvisational character. Our instruments consist of string instruments as the Turkish saz, the Greek lafta, lyra and tambouras as well as wind instruments as the Indian bansuri and the Turkish ney. One part is of a more percussive nature, introducing the shamanic element with frame drums and various small percussion instruments. Voice and mantras, singing bowls and bells are interwoven throughout the musical journey.
