The Many Faces of Love

The Many Faces of Love – An exploration of Hindu Mythology was our first collaboration with de Doelen. It’ took a good 7 month’s to produce this multidisciplinary program (storytelling, music, dance, visuals).
Shivali, Vee and Annelieke are the stars of this production. They have worked extremely hard together and the end result was outstanding. This program can go places!

We have received so much love and appreciation from our audience and I’m grateful that they came to support this unique concept. And my GWA Aniel Autar is proud to be associated with DesiYUP.

We started 2020 with two concerts on January 11th. The first one was for baby’s, toddlers and pregnant women. As research has shown an many cultures have known for millennia, listening to calming and spiritual music helps in the positive development of a child. Even listening from within the womb. During the afternoon concert many children and their parents were able to listen to Vedic hymns while they relaxed in a safe and comfortable environment.
The second concert that was during the evening, adults that wanted to have a relaxing laying down session while different ancient poems by Indian saints were presented with both classical and modern instruments.
Especially for this laying down concerts, we flew over singers and composer Aks and Lakshmi from Los Angeles (USA) and we had Prewien Pandora Mishre (Harmonium) and Danielle van Driel (Harp) accompanying them.
