Music concert

The special guests for this music concert are as follows:

  • Ben Seretan: Ben Seretan plays the guitar, sings, and makes long music. Long, swirling clouds of tones meets with cascading waterfall plucks of electric guitar joined together by a honeyed singing voice and a deep appreciation of tenderness.
  • Cropcircle: Cropcircle will play a special set for a dark meditation with Mariano Fabbrolati on gongs as a very special guest. The Cropcircle project was born in 2004 from Cecco's idea of creating a somehow experimental kind of electronic music, in which to join his "ambient" influences with more refined and obscure sounds and atmospheres, in a certain way similar to Coil.
  • Orange Duo: The Orange Duo began in 2005 from the meeting of Manuel Tappa (Didjeridoo) and Gianluca Rosso (drums) who together play a unique electro-ethno sound. They play techno and drum / bass without electronic instruments, creating wild tribal rhythms with aboriginal influences: a fusion of sounds and beats land with an urban atmosphere - high energy content.
  • Philippo Franchini: Philippo Franchini is a musician and composer who is pioneering the introduction of Nada yoga - the yoga of the sounds- in western countries.
  • The Sonic Dawn: The Sonic Dawn has recently established a name for themselves in the psychedelic underground. Known for their energetic live performances and distinctive sound, The Sonic Dawn incorporates elements from the psychedelic music of the late 60s with their own atmospheric vibes.
  • Ufomammut: Ufomammut was formed in 1999 in Italy by Poia, Urlo, and Vita. They are recognized worldwide as the creators of a unique brand of psychedelic sludge. With epic torrents of sound, droning vocals, and a trance inducing miasma of textures, the band combines a monumental riffing attitude with the psychedelia of the more visionary Pink Floyd.
  • XIXA: XIXA are psychedelic and cumbia. But, most of all, XIXA are rock ‘n roll. Their music is rooted in a South American heritage, but is equally informed by their hometown of Tucson, Arizona’s vivid legendary music scene.

Yoga workshops

There are several yoga workshops you can join:

  • A Journey into Yin Yoga with Max Monti
