Come to our rainforest and learn the knowledge of the Sound Gods and witness the healing powers it has. So he agreed and before he knew it, as smooth as it is from awake to sleep, he was off to their world to learn in the Alien Rainforest. Now the transformation was complete. ALL the knowledge of the Sound Gods had been downloaded to him through his soul.

Behind the name Indra is the symbolism in the form of the god Indra, a king of deva's (gods) in Indian mythology, defender of gods and mankind from the forces of evil. Indra gets his strength by drinking Soma, the elixir of immortality. He had early aspects of a sun-god, riding in a golden chariot across the heavens, but he is more often known as the god of thunder and fertility since he brought the water to earth, respected as a creator god having set order to the cosmos.
Indra's first serious excursion into the world of music was 2002 when together with DJ Ushtra and DJj Beatanga edited music program and hosted the radio project "Baraka", world music show on Radio Student. As a part of DJ's and promoters gathered around the project Baraka Collective, she organized and acted at various ethnic-world, dub, downbeat events. Already next year Ushtra and Indra started a new radio project called "ChillDren of the Earth" and this were her doors into the world of ambient music.
She was a resident for the first big Croatian trance festival: Underwater Overground, where Indra played at the chill floor, as well as at all the following UWOG festivals.

She often includes live instruments in her sets (bansouri, douduk, gitar...).
Her sound is a fusion of floating and ambient atmospheres and deep dub bass lines with ethnic elements. As in a real life, she draws the inspiration for her music from nature, spirituality and traditions of ancient cultures.

sukhush project (psybient, psydub, psytrance, flaute,)
Brooklyn-based live duo – SuKhush – features Rachel's improvisation on the C Flute over Vish's DJ/RMX sets, creating light-filled pathways that begin with Eastern-influenced psychedelic grooves, pass through bass-pumping step & glitchy downtempo, and land back in beautiful fields of ethereal ambient moments. SuKhush uses a variety of real-time sampling and remix techniques to create original experiences in their live sets.
SuKhush developed its pineal-tingling blend of the organic & technological while Rachel and husband Vish (Labyrinthm – http://soundcloud.com/labyrinthm) owned and operated their own music venue in Mumbai, India, during the early 2000s. Back then, Rachel became frustrated by the limitations of the press-&-play DJs she usually worked with & wanted to develop a truly interwoven electronic and organic live partnership. Joining the New York scene in 2005 – & launching the legendary 6362MetaForce party collective out of Brooklyn – Vish and Rachel evolved SuKhush into that partnership. Now Vish provides the improvised DJ sets, loops, samples, live remixing and FX, while Rachel improvises live on flute, to create a unique conversation of beats & grooves that engages and transforms their audiences.
"SuKhush" is a Sanskrit word meaning complete contentment – a sentiment beyond joy or happiness. SuKhush strives to generate that feeling through its performances and sets, laying down sounds ranging from ambient, chill-out, psychill & downtempo to more upbeat progressive, dubstep & global grooves.
SuKhush has played music venues, art events, yoga celebrations & dance performances in NYC as well as festivals, nightclubs & private events throughout North America, Europe, India and Israel. SuKhush is gearing up for summer 2014 with another European festival tour (July/August) as part of the Maia Brasil Records family – excited to continue their odyssey of exploring new soundscapes, and taking inspiration from their audiences and musical collaborators to push SuKhush toward greater creativity..

Symbolico (psydub, glitch)
Or Ron Stern, musical producer born in Israel in the city of Rishon-Lezion, is known as the founder of the world-renowned project SYMBOLICO. Or Ron began his musical life at the age of 13 when he first listened to psytrance music artists such as: Juno-Reactor, Infected mushroom, Sun project, Goa Gil, Raja Ram, Simon Posford and many more. As a kid, psytrance music was a portal for flying with his imagination to long distances. It did not take long till he realized that he has a message to send to the world as a musical expression. Until the age of 21, Or Ron took his musical life only as a hobby; working on trance projects such as the PSYCHOPET on Impulse tracker and Propellorheads Reason sequencers.
At last, 22-year-old Or Ron decided to take it to the next level and go further and deeper into the world of sound and production. It was a turning point when he realized that psytrance alone is not satisfying enough for his colorful, mosaic-like spirit. He began to learn different types of musical genres beginning from the funky, and sometimes glitchy, world of hip hop; to the jazzy world of swing, the groovy sounds of dub, to the ethereal planes of downtempo psychedelic music. Upon the discovery of this new musical portal, the Indigo Child project (the first Symbolico) was born. What is better than a psychedelic project??? - A psychedelic project that lets you move your ass with its sexy rhythm. Indigo child was all about creating those funky Breakbeats with psytrance influences, mixing them with samples from the world of pop.
With time and self-development, the project “SYMBOLICO: Universal Knowledge Decoded Musically” was born.
The timeless and limitless realm of being was a doorway for Or Ron; a doorway of creativity, the same portal which opened at the very beginning when Or Ron listened to psytrance as a child; this portal is what UNIVERSAL KNOWLEDGE DECODED MUSICALLY is all about: a musical expression of a higher level of knowledge. It’s a type of knowledge one stores in the heart rather than the mind.
Or Ron: “For me music is an experience. Good music is an experience which continues even after the music itself is already over”.

zoungla (psychedelic world music)
As early as Zoungla, aka Costa Damoulianos began to learn the letters of the alphabet he was learning the notes of the piano. At the age of twelve, he strived for a broader awareness of music and turned to the bass guitar and drums which eventually led to the discovery of his talent for playing guitar and singing. When Costa turned 17 he began his professional music career and attended Vanier Music School to learn jazz guitar.
However, the most crucial moment of his early adolescence was the day that his father introduced him to a tape mixer, this was the day when Costa first found his love for mixing and producing music. Multi instrumental curiosity led him to technologically advance in what he believes to be one of today's most interesting musical techniques; electronic composition.
Costa takes influence from various styles of music such as Pink Floyd, Ott, Shpongle, Jeff Martin, Dream Theater, Argaman, Rush, Hans Zimmer, Pain of Salvation, Yanni, Devin Townsend and Koji Kondo. His love for music continued to expand and develop and he increasingly devoted his time towards a psychedelic direction, introducing Zoungla.
