      Akara is sublime and surreal, embracing the genre of spiritual, digitally enhanced music bubbling up over the World.  Sacred music, however, is as old as humanity. It’s one of our greatest ancient mysteries that there are sacred sound frequencies which mirror nature, create our reality, as well as produce the effects of love, health and rejuvenation. Akara seeks to create a sacred space for the exploration of the our bodies, emotion and artistic expression. For this special headliner set, Akara will be joined by the dance magic of Alexandra Kiteri, Eva Brena and Alina Cerys.
