“To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour”. Merging both music and the sacred muses, gods and goddesses, celestial warriors, angels, fairies, elves, archetypal figures, day dreamers, tree huggers, voyagers, alchemists.. We ride you to the ‘Cosmic Theatre’ to witness the magical dance of the living energy, where each moment can be a blissful discovery. ‘Portal Family’ proudly presents AKASHA: the Primordial Ohm, the music of the spheres, the unseen energy from which all transcendental matter is created..
