As every year this Summer Samadhi is honored to be part of Radhadesh’s annual Summer Festival in Belgium and this year the festival will take it to another level by adding Holi! Holi is known as the colorful festival where participants shower each other in paint, a celebration increasingly growing in popularity all over the world and as it is an ancient Indian tradition, where else within Europe can one celebrate such a great event Indian style as one can in Radhadesh?! Radhadesh is THE place to experience Holy India within Europe with its most inviting and friendly community always ready to serve its visitors and its most magical temple within the fairytale like castle, a memorable characteristic of Radhadesh.
As Samadhi is currently in the creation process of its new production ‘2FOLD’ the team will present a nearly 30 minutes showcase titled ‘Rama’ presenting the new cast, style and explosive energy of the coming production ‘Hanuman’. The cast will consist of dancers Annlydie Groenen, Gaura Nataraj Das Furdak, Loura Sita van Krimpen, Vraja Sundari Keilman, Rasarani Keilman, Liam O’Callaghan, Gil Gomes Leal and more.
Music will consist of tracks by renowned crossover composers Olafur Arnalds, Anti Hero and Samadhi’s all-time favorite composer Nitin Sawhney and the entire performance exudes a vibrant energy and a powerful flow that will be sure to sweep you off your feet!

WHAT IS HOLI? It is a spiritual event originating in India which is generally held in early spring and signifies new life, growth and new beginnings. Holi, therefore, reminds us to colour our life with love, faith, and a generous spirit. It calls us to give and receive. And best of all, it’s just great fun! We get lost in colour, forget about our usual identity, and experience life – and each other — from a whole new perspective. Although the festival is mainly held in Spring, we all live in Belgium and therefore what better thing to do than move it into the middle of Summer where the weather is more suitable, in this way combining it with our annual Summer Festival (since 1980′s) for even more fun. See you all then and lets make this the Finest Belgian Colour Party !!
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
Thank you Manu prabhu, Malati dd and the entire community of Radhadesh for inviting us once again and making us feel part of this wonderful world called Radhadesh, we are counting the days and just can’t wait to be back!
