Jam Sessions at Shankra - Get in the Groove
Feb 23, 2021 | Shankra Switzerland

Music unites everyone.

At Shankra Festival, we have a broad spectrum of music that goes beyond electronic sounds, psytrance rhythms and loopy psychedelic grooves. At our venue, everyone is welcome to bring out their inner talents and emotions, expressing themselves through body, voice and movement, resonating with the rhythm of the festival.

We believe that music is universal and non-hierarchical. The idea of gathering for daily jam sessions allows not only musicians but also our Shankra guests, including kids, avid listeners and unrestrained dancers to mingle with each other, and move to the sounds of improvised music with trumpets, bongos, percussions, guitars, spin drums, tambourines, expressive voices and much more!

Musical improvisations happen when creative sounds are combined with instrumental techniques, and a one-of-a-kind connection happens between musician and listener or between other musicians, producing magical and unexpected interactions. A shift from harmony to many other dimensions of music, including timbre, melodic intervals, rhythm and spontaneous sharing between players, creates new and unique performances, rendering the perfect atmosphere to enjoy music and manifest love towards one another.

Healing Practices

Reconnecting with your body, touching inner spots and cleaning your spirit is sometimes a much-needed process that we tend to underestimate in our daily routine. At Shankra Festival, we want to give you the techniques to consciously work towards a deeper understanding of yourself, your spirit and the planet, with the precious help of healers from all around the world.

Live Painting

The most powerful way of creating is using our imagination. Sharing our visions with people is like selling plane tickets to our personal world: you will be able to travel through the artistic expressions of painters and creators, presented in a unique environment.
