In collaboration

These workshops are offered in collaboration with individuals who have greatly inspired me.


Samâ - Sufi Music and Dance

In collaboration with Linda Rosas, a Sufi dance teacher at Les Fous du Village in the Basque Country, we invite you to experience a deep and spiritual practice associated with the mystical branch of Islam, Samâ or Sufi dance.

Samâ is deeply spiritual and symbolic, considered a means to transcend material concerns and get closer to the spiritual reality. One of the most recognizable features of Samâ is the use of Sufi music, including singing, recitation of mystical poems, and traditional musical instruments, which we perform live with Julen Achiary (Daf, Bendir, Oud, and the Iranian Setar).

Instructors: Linda Rosas, Julen Achiary, Ibantuta

Duration: 4 hours

Target audience

Audience: Open to all
Age Range: From 16 years old and up
Location: Monthly workshop held at Les Fous du Village temple in St Esteben (Basque Country, France).

Between 8 and 20 people


Kirtan - Musical Meditation

In collaboration with Léa Etchegoyen, a yoga teacher at Yogalaia in the Basque Country, we invite you to explore an intimate and collective practice of musical meditation and devotional chanting called "Kirtan."
Kirtan is not limited to Hinduism; it finds its place in diverse spiritual and meditative contexts worldwide. It is recognized as a powerful means of connecting with others, calming the mind, and cultivating deep joy and inner peace.
Accompanied by instruments such as the Harmonium, Daf, Guitar, and Oud, we chant mantras that free our voices, create positive energy, and promote spiritual connection. This unique experience will immerse you in a meditative and musical practice that opens your heart and mind to greater inner harmony.
