Yemadas was born in India in 2011 when Ana and Tiago were living at Sadhana Forest, Auroville. We were invited to participate in Lively Up Your Earth Festival and had a great success on stage because we were the only band that made the people really dance. Since then Yemadas realized that their mission lies in playing for other people.
Our concerts are not merely entretainnment. For us they are rituals, ceremonies of celebration, choir of voice unity and a deep message for a new world in harmony with nature and with our souls.
As a band we have been growing,evolving and we always like to invite other musicians to play or other dancers to dance. But in 2012 we started to live in Windarra farm, Auroville. There we connected with other musicians not only on a musical level but also on a deep spiritual journey. A new vision was born and the band decided to bring together different aspects of their lifes to their performances and started to include theatre and powerful dances.
In 2013, Yemadas decided to realize their dream of having an organic farm. Now, Yemadas farm is the new project of the band. All 7 menbers are living together in South Portugal working the land and sharing their lives, having more time for playing music, doing their Sound Journeys and rehersals for the shows. Soon it will be possible to buy a CD of Yemadas with 2Kgs of fresh organic vegetables included.
Yemadas are ready to play for a better world!
