Dave Dinger



The mental landscape of one Suryakant Sawhney is populated by objects in the mirror that are closer then they appear. As Lifafa - Urdu for "envelope" - he narrates this landscape through the variety of tools that someone of his creative pedigree has at their disposal. Luckily for us however, he has chosen to paint these pictures musically, pushing the namesake of his adopted alterego. In a post-Dilla world, we have grown accustomed to off-timings that somehow work. Under the (literal) cloak of Lifafa, Suryakant takes it further, creating sounds that drop off imaginary cliffs, disappear as if being sucked through...

The Yoga of Sustainability This class, otherwise known as: ‘The Theory and Practice of the Yoga of Personal and Global Sustainability’ is perhaps the most important class to take as it gives a simple model that can be used to increase the personal and global sustainability that is now so precarious.  'Yoga' in this case means a combination of techniques coming together as a confluence of factors to produce a unique outcome.  Using 8 elements or facets gathered from the Yoga, Ayurveda, Jyotisha and Puranic Traditions we will weave together a solid path, which when followed will optimize the probability of...

Jodie Underhill

"I didn’t choose garbage, it chose me! When I witnessed how severe India’s garbage problem is, it completely broke my heart. I also realised then that I’d found my life’s mission. I’m not scared of hard work, I love a challenge and I’ve picked up lots of garbage whilst on my travels even before coming to India. There is a social stigma attached to garbage that simply doesn’t affect me as I’m from a society that doesn’t have a caste system. I’ve been raised to believe that we’re all equals. Sweeping, scrubbing paan stains, picking up dirty nappies or garbage that...

Miles Toland

My name is Miles Toland and I'm a visual artist from the United States. I feel my most authentic self when my lifestyle involves sunshine and clean water, exercise disguised as play, high vibrational food, creativity expression, labour intensive art projects, bass heavy music, yoga, and the celebration of life. With these needs in mind, I happily made my way to Vaayu and became their first artist in resident in 2013. I had a solo painting exhibition called "Driftwood" that depicted watermen and visionaries merging with nature and harmonic geometries. I have since returned to Vaayu to help nurture and...

Tarqeeb (Translation: Plan) is Ashish Jose. A seeker of hedonism through rhythm, philanthropy through music-making, he formed his moniker in the summer of 2012. The idea was always simple--promotion of quality EDM, minus the little labels and the big boxes. The only constants remain deep, groovy bass-lines, dark atmospheres and a trajectory that ultimately crescendos into high energy dance music. Coming from a Metal (bassist) and Psychedelic trance background, his sets innately include a generous dose of live sampling, layering and an overall vibe that could be defined as 'eclectic.' His influences run deep. Think older heavyweights like Photek, LTJ Bukem,...
