Pool) is exploring a tribal/ethnic fusion sound based on organic world rhythms that facilitate a full mind, body, and soul connection; intended for ecstatic dance, but useful on any dance floor.
The retreat was the most magnificent and magical time of my life. It was a learning and healing experience as well as a time with so many beautiful souls, full of respect, joy, compassion, co-creation and a lot more wonders.
I will never forget this magical and special time.
There is no word for what i take home out of the retreat, if I find it I let you know.
