Come explore an unparalleled holistic and conscious approach to music production!
Our course is designed to guide you, the inspired artist, in discovering your individual path towards full vibratory expression of the soul, and to aid you in the channeling of the rhythm of your heart, translated into wondrous music created with the collective goal of healing and raising the frequency of the planet.
IN SPIRIT is a retreat designed to inspire the individual music enthusiast through a unique fusion of practical and theoretical production techniques combined with more spiritual exercises (i.e. meditation, breath-work, channeling, and sacred ceremonial rituals).
The synthesis of these two distinct modes of creative expression and connection culminating in the alignment of mind, body, and spirit; resulting in the profound realization and manifestation of divine artistic potential.

DJ, Producer, Mastering and Sound Engineer
Hailing from Brazil’s vast Cerrado region and now based in Porto, Portugal, Kurup’s weighty, downtempo tracks sound like shadows creeping across a forest floor: inexorable, mysterious, strangely alive. The Cerrado is home to the most biologically diverse tropical savannahs in the world, and Kurup’s music reflects a sense of being surrounded by a living, breathing landscape. He builds his songs out of earthy kicks and faint tendrils of melody that slice through a canopy of atmospheric delays, and then populates the empty space with clicks, rustles, and rattles, evoking an environment brimming with unseen organisms.
