Radhika Radhika Vekaria is no stranger to capturing purpose & a higher calling within her music – her namesake “Radha” is the Vedic goddess of love and devotion; two concepts that are synonymous with Vekaria’s pursuit of the arts & music. A classically trained musician, Radhika has performed in a number of impressive situations; from lead in the multi-faceted production INDIA INDIA to a member of bands fronted by luminaries like the late artist Prince. Her worldwide experience and exploration of music has brought her home to the sounds of her heritage and on Dec 31st, Radhika will be performing an intimate and unique session of meditative mantra and chanting, weaving in pieces from her recently released album SAPTA, The Seven Ways. Falling stylistically somewhere between world music, textural soundscape and a collection of mantras, SAPTA (the Sanskrit word for “Seven”) is a powerful ode to Vekaria’s Indian roots and the Sanskrit mantras which have guided thousands of years of healing for devotees of yoga and meditative arts. 。
Maneesh Maneesh grew up firmly established in the roots and philosophy of Yoga. A degree in pharmacology gave him an insight into the human body from a scientific standpoint and his passion for sports made him a lifelong student of physiology, function and movement. After MBA school and working in finance in Japan and Hong Kong, he returned to India in pursuit of further studies in Yoga, Ayurveda, and Sanskrit. Since returning to Japan in 2009, Maneesh has been sharing his insights both domestically and abroad, offering classes, retreats, workshops as well as corporate lectures and seminars on yoga, meditation, mindfulness and wellness. His Indian roots and knowledge of Indian yoga & meditation and his two decades of living in Japan give his teaching an authenticity and relatability that cannot be denied. It is rare to find a teacher with a mix of cultural, educational, physical, and linguistic experiences to bring together the ancient and modern, East and West, the spiritual and the scientific.
