Reprise: Many Faces of Love
A multidisciplinary performance about love
Love, the force that unites humanity. Shivali Bhammer takes you on an exciting poetic journey of love stories based on ancient Hindu scriptures. Each story unravels an emotion that can touch any heart, and sheds light on a different perspective of what touches our core, love. If you want to experience an adventure full of passion, unexpected twists and a dash of drama, all you have to do is sit back and listen.
The essence of these nine extraordinary affairs of the heart is enhanced with melodic ragas-based compositions by Diepak Ramjiawan, and the rich vibration of the strings by Annelieke Marselje on the violin. At the end of this journey you will fall in love with love itself!
Many Faces of Love will be performed in the legendary Grote Zaal (auditorium). Due to the Covid regulations implemented by the government we will respect the 1.5 m distance. For more information about the Covid regulations visit this link.
Een multidisciplinaire performance over de liefde
Liefde, de kracht die de mensheid verbindt. Shivali Bhammer neemt je mee op een spannende poëtische reis van liefdesverhalen gebaseerd op oude Hindoe geschriften. Elk verhaal ontrafelt een emotie die elk hart kan raken, en werpt licht op een ander perspectief van datgene dat onze kern raakt, de liefde. Als je een avontuur wilt beleven vol passie, onverwachte wendingen en een vleugje drama, hoef je alleen maar achterover te leunen en te luisteren.
De essentie van deze negen buitengewone affaires van het hart worden versterkt met melodieuze, op raga’s gebaseerde composities van Diepak Ramjiawan, en de rijke trilling van de snaren door Annelieke Marselje op viool. Aan het eind van deze reis zul je verliefd worden op de liefde zelf!

Sarnami-Hindustani vocalist Diepak Ramjiawan was born and raised in Rotterdam. The young singer gave his first concerts in prestigious venues such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, De Doelen and the World Forum Theatre. One concert in particular is very dear to him, since he had the honour to perform as a supporting act for Ustad Zakir Hussain. During his act Diepak sang the Shiva Tandav Stotram while he played the tabla.
It’s been a year since he started to produce Spirituals/Devotional Mantra Music in his own unique style. Diepak believes that Music connects us to our inner self. “What this connectivity truly signifies is the listener’s personal experience.”
When she was 5 years old, Annelieke was taking violin lessons at the SKVR in Rotterdam. Afterwards she went to high school for Music and Dance and received lessons from Thijs Kramer, who was part of the Rotterdams Conservatorium. After high school she moved on to the Rotterdams Conservatorium and afterwards graduated at the Fontys Conservatorium in Tilburg in 2010.
Since 2016, she is teaching classes at the pop-academy of Codarts as a violin teacher.
Through the years she has worked with many national and international jazz and pop artists for CD-recordings, concerts and music videos.
Some of these artists are: Jose James, Armin van Buuren, Martin Garrix, Kensington, Krezip, Andre Hazes, Navarone, Nick & Simon, Doe Maar, Anouk, Afrojack, Rod Stewart, and Michael Bublé.
She performs in orchestras quartets, solo but also as the Marselje Duo together with her sister Dorine who plays the concertharp.
