About the artists:ALUNA depicts the joined talents and complementary creations of Maywa and Steffen Kirchhoff, world travellers and soul explorers. Their music project aspires to the creation and spreading of ritualistic music, leading the listeners to reconnect with the Earth, to harmonize with Nature, and with its endless wonders. It’s healing music, it’s music to dance, it’s music to love.Their vision is embodied by their selection of sounds, idyllic melodies, and fascinating vocals, all permeated of Latin American flavours. In fact, their music project finds its originin the Columbian forests where these beautiful souls first met, as soloist artists. The word ALUNA also descends from the natives of that land. Among the Kogi people, it stands for the “invisible spirit realm”, the source and intelligence of life.
“Every time I listen to the wind, to the silence, to the stars, to the earth, to the sounds of nature, an essential space opens up in me. It is in this vibration, it is in this state that I suddenly realize that I am creating.“ Maywa

About The Cacao Dance Parties:The Cacao Dance Party concept emerged from a dream that we can party in a conscious way and have heartopening and liberating experiences in an organic and integrative way. A dream that says partying can actually be sweet medicine for our body, mind AND soul and that we can use our gatherings as an opportunity to come together as one tribe.

About the Cacao:Theobroma Cacao translates from Latin to “Food of the Gods” and was valued very high during the pre-columbian times. It was used by the Mayans in ceremony to celebrate life, death and other festivities. With this ancient plant medicine, Cacao, as an ally, we are gifted an opportunity to open up in a gentle way and to drop down from our heads – in to our bodies.We use 100% fair trade, organic, wild, hand-peeled, criollo beans from Guatemala, and we prepare the elixir with love and care.We are happy and honoured to share the awareness around this sacred plant and to let you experience what “real” chocolate can taste and feel like…- Theobromine, the active component in cacao, has a contraindication with anti-depressants – please let us know beforehand if you are taking any, or if you are pregnant, as we will need to adjust your dose accordingly.Much love and excitement, My, Steffen, Maywa and Lasse
