This blog is especially for Dutch musicians and music students living in The Netherlands. I will give you four reasons why it’s important to make time to attend concerts.
There are two ways to enjoy a live music concert these days. One is through personal experience and the second one is through social media. If it comes to social media, we are mostly part of someone else’s experience, you can easily say it’s a second-hand experience not leaving a long lasting imprint on your soul.
In this blog I will tell you why and when I go Live on FaceBook. Recently DesiYUP received some questions or rather feedback about the events that we cover Live. I cherry-pick the events where we go Live and here you read what motivates me to cover an event with my iPhone.
The only thing that keeps me balanced are sacred sounds. And I use Nada Yoga as a effective pain killer. I listen to Mantra’s or classical music when I’m walking, traveling, when I need time to reflect at home, or when I need to focus on my breathing.
The Netherlands Trade Mission to India organized by RVO and leaded by VNO-NCW chairman Hoes de Boer was a successful event for us. DesiYUP got the opportunity to expand our artist network and we connected with Dutch and Indian SME’s, ministers and policymakers.
Prime minister Mark Rutte, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Sigrid Kaag, Minister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality Carola Schouten, Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management Cora van Nieuwenhuizen and Minister for Healthcare and Sport Bruno Bruins will travel to India from 23 to 25 May 2018 on a working visit and trade mission.

During my Skype-conversation with Manish Vyas, he told me that our world is in need of sattvic-music. According Hindu mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik people who have a strong sattva-guna personality feel the need to outgrow their fears by helping others and during this process they realize they have a mind of their own. Sattva-guna music is sensitive, it allows to introspect and by analyzing the deeper meaning of mantra-music one can experience a change in mindset and feelings.
The most favorite Hindu festival of all, Holi has a strong connection with the divine Krishna. It’s been written in many scriptures that Krishna started this tradition of Holi with his beloved Radha. He enjoyed teasing her by throwing blue color on Radha’s fair face.
