Akashwani (meaning ‘Oracle’ and representing open-mindedness and free thinking as well as spiritual inspiration and freedom, in the founders’ sense; adopted from the same Sanskrit word, the literal translation being ‘Voice From The Sky’) is a music ensemble founded by Kalle Rademacker and Wolle Aretz in 2008 .
Akashwani use music as an oracle through which the spirit speaks.
The music is meditative by nature, having at times a spiritual 'healing' quality.
La Iguana Blues Band is a group that gives tribute to the best of Blues and Rock of all times.
It was formed in 1991 out of a jam session in a pub in Las Palmas called “Pub La Iguana” where the name was derived.
With the style of the Canadian singer/guitarist Dave O'Connor the group started with personalized versions by Blues and Rock Groups such as ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Gary Moore, Golden Earring, ect.
Trough the years they included more and more of their own original material in their repertoir, recording two CDs.
