I am full of joy to propose this creative dhrupad workshop with Pelva Naik in a very cozy place surrounded by mountains and forests.
The meeting has an approach of creative rest that will take us to feel the present moment. One of the aims is to nourish of our voice taking care of ourselves and everything around us. We will do it of course through music, singing and rhythm as well as using the awareness of nature, silence, listening and respect for the processes that each of us are going through. We will share time and sit around the firecamp. We will invoke the elements and see if any rāga visits us and we will take the opportunity to get to know each other and get closer to that song that is calling us.
Place: El Boix de Vidabona, Sant Martí d’Ogassa, Ripollés, Catalonia.
