Terra del Cel

open air concert at Monte Verità

Friday 14th August 2015 at 20.30


With Beatritz Lalanne & Anass HabibBeatritz Lalanne, Concert

Beatritz Lalanne

At the beginning, “Terra Maïre” (:”Mother Earth”) is a unique duo of a cappella singers. Two surprising voices, emanating from the same source – those of Marie-Ange and Beatritz, mother and daughter – with a common heredity and a common repertoire, rooted in the South of France, in the regions of Rouergue (Aveyron)​, the Basque Country and the Bearn.  It was back in 1996 that Beatritz and Marie-Ange decided to embark on a pilgrimage back to their roots.  Though mother and daughter, they have very separate personalities and artistic backgrounds. This diversity gave them the energy and ability to breathe life back into the secular songs of the land of their ancestors.

These songs – prayers, laments, psalms – “chevrotés” or “sung in a quavering voice” by men and women who have gone before them and most of whom have disappeared, make up a unique heritage, a timeless tradition in danger of extinction.

In the intertwined voices of “Terra-Maïre”  their arises a world of essential emotions, that tread the fine line between the sacred and sorcery. These are wild or medieval and sacred melodies in Occitan, language of troubadours and Cathars.  more

Anass Habib

Anass gave many concerts in Morocco, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, France, the Netherlands, Poland, South Africa and Tunesia. In Morocco he gave concerts in most of the bigger cities. Just to name a few: Ifran, Meknes, Mirleft, Rabat, Tifelt, Tanger and, of course, Fez, which always remained an important centre of activities for Anass. His voice is considered as one of the most beautiful Arabic voices, with his ability of going from the deep and warm low tones in the bariton range (Anass’ primary range) all the way to the high tenor voice to express emotions and devotion. His repertories go through a lot of countries and civilizations. From the great Lebanese diva Fairouz to the Egyptian Oum Kalthoum, from the Syrian Sabah Fakhri to the Lebanese Marcel Khalife, from soufi poems to maronite (old christian) melodies and medieval sephardic andalusian songs… Anass sings mainly in the many Arabic dialects, in Syriac (aramaic), in old Greek, and in French, Spanish and English. more

AHURA’s music is sufi music, inspired by poems of Persian poets and mystics, above all by Mevlana Djellalledin RUMI, whose spiritual message for understanding among the nations AHURA tries to convey by means of traditional oriental sound structures as well as by including new sound elements.

It’s Mohammad’s aim to employ music as a universal means of communication in order to unite cultures and people beyond all ethnic contrasts and differences. For him music and sounds are an intuitive way to hint at the unity and essence of all things, but without developing a dogma or doctrine.

Concert with Sugato Bhaduri & Omprakash Pandey

Indian Classical Music

Concert at Mergoscia Church on June 2, 2011 at 20.30

Healing & Meditative Workshop with traditionnal Indian Chanting on June 3, from 10.00 to 18.00. Venue & inscription: Centro Lungta more

Sugato, one of the most sought after Mandolin player in India today, was initiated into the field of music at a very tender age. While he was a school going boy started learning vocal music from his uncle and emerged out as a child artist performing on A.I.R. (All India Radio)

During his college days, he turned on to instrumental music and has taken the basic lessons of western music for this western instrument-‘MANDOLIN’. After graduation in science, he devoted himself in Hindustani Classical Music & over a period of 17 years he has learnt under the active supervision of renowned sarodiya Pt T. N. Majumder. He was also privileged to join the workshops conducted by Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, the legendary figure in Indian music.

In the year 2001, this young torch-bearer of Maihar-Seni Gharana has been awarded the prestigious SURMANI title by Sur-Singar Samsad (mumbai).

Deep resonant tone of his instrument, evoking shades of Veena, Rabab, Sarod and Sitar has helped his music to tap the earliest sources of Hindustani Classical Music and bring it forth with a new sound.

“ At first there was sound, from sound came the space element (akasha) and from space the entire creation.

We are sound.

Inappropriate music can cause imbalance and with this disharmony, make us stressed and sick. Nowadays with all our crazy sounds we have more and more difficulties to keep harmony in our lives. That’s why it is so important and pleasant to learn how to tune ourselves for greater happiness and a more peaceful live… “


In 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010 Sugato has toured extensively in Europe (U.K, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Switzerland & Austria) & performed in various prestigious music concerts.

Sugato has already performed in almost all the major music conferences in all over India. He has performed in: Malabar Mahotsav, Samraat Sangeet Sammelan, Shadaj Music Concert, Shekhawati Festival, Kalaghoda Arts Festival, Sholapur Mahotsav, Surana Festival, Dr.Vasant Rao Deshpande Sangeet Samaroh, Mysore Dasara Festival, Rose Festival, Kameshwari Festival, Kalidas Samaroh, Hampi Festival, Qutub Festival, Chakradhar Samaroh, Island Tourism Festival, Kurukshetra Festival, Bundi Utsav, Rajgir Mahotsav, Maharana Kumbha Sangeet Samaroh, Raja Rani Music Conference, Baba Harballabh Sangeet Sammelan, Sri Sankat Mochan Sangeet Sammelan, India Habitat Centre, India International Centre, Durlabh Vadya Vinod Sangeet Sammelan e.t.c
