Stoked to be for 7th year at the NZIYF, Anirvan Deva will be offering a multicultural vibrant night set on the main stage, an epic ecstatic dance set at the Lotus and a layered Chill-Out set with his mate Gaio on the mandolin at the Chai Tent.
Session 1: Universal Vibes
Universal Vibe is for connecting people through dance on a deeper level: the beat deepens as an electronic tapestry of world rhythms that weave us together as individuals within a greater family. A universal family.
In the mix, various tonalities of electronics, global bass and world fusion blended with deep bass and percussion to shake your body, expand your mind and awaken the Spirit within.
Let's celebrate Life, let's dance!
Session 2: Ecstatic Dance
Ecstatic Dance starts in a smooth and flowing manner for warming up and stretching; then it climbs into more percussive and rhythmic beats to evoke many different moods and modes of movement, allowing for a full spectrum of cathartic self-expression and emotional release.
Ecstatic Dance is an invigorating mind-body practice that helps your body to release tension and your mind to let go and reconnect with a higher sense of Being.
Session 3: Chill-Out
Slow, deep, smooth. Collecting sounds from all over the world and using them as tools for transformation and honoring the divine within ourselves.
It will be a special Dj set, with the participation of the talented Gaio on the mandolin. This magic mix will bring about peace and tranquility in the body as well as in the mind.
