20:00 Zelday Karssen

In the Netherlands born Zelday Karssen (1981)  is a professional didgeridoo player, maker, musician and teacher. He has studied the Didgeridoo since 2001 and with the years he devoted more and more his life towards this ancient instrument. Throughout time he studied from traditional to modern styles and is a known teacher when it comes to consciousness about sound, body, and spirit. His refined and organic sense of sound let him grow towards an developed sound healer. Traveling around the world his entire life enriched his vision about our planet and brings these flavours back into his work.
Over the last years he studied south American plant medicines and travels several winters to the Amazonian jungle to the work from few indigenous shamans. The work as a musician, sound healer and his natural understanding about these specific plants, allowed him to combine these gifts into one. He lived throughout his life the core and the edges of existence and with that he become nowadays an inspiration for those who know his profound work and passion.
During the past ten years Zelday inspired literally thousands during his lessons, workshops, performing’s, ceremonies and retreats.

Airtist
is one of the best-known European bands playing organic beats. They create essential elementary dance music with the most ancient instruments. The three musicians, acknowledged worldwide build an uplifting and energetic atmosphere that is deeply rooted. This Jew's harp, didgeridoo and human beatbox trio brings real organic beats and trance to the audience. 

Airtist is a unique music project creating the atmosphere of electronic dance music, but only using ancient instruments and the human voice. The didgeridoo, the Jew's harp and the human beat-box together create an unmatchable sound-world that is typical only to Airtist. 

They don't use any electronically produced sound. Only the natural vibration of their AIR-fueled instruments gets people dancing. Despite the cultural heritage relating to the origin of their instruments the music of Airtist speaks a universal language that gets along without electronically produced elements. This music could have been played thousands of years ago in the very same way.
