Concerts and events

Would you like to be taken on a musical journey, listening to songs and their stories from all over the world? Next to concerts I offer unique experiences in which music is combined with ritual, sharing of cacao, tea, singing together, meeting each other. I am super passionate about these events and would love to meet you during one of them!

On this page I give an impression of the different experiences I like to create.

If you would like to receive recordings of my songs or invitations for (online) concerts, you can subscribe to my newsletter by sending an email to gwendolynndeboer@gmail.com.

Solo

As a solo artist I perform different traditional songs from around the world. Over the past years I’ve been exploring many musical styles, their stories and their rich musical tradition.
My connection to these different styles is always developing and I feel very happy to be able to share different perspectives from these songs that reflect different ways of living and viewing the world. There is so much wisdom in these songs.
I have a lot of respect to these different musical styles and I know that I will never be able to fully understand or share these perspectives completely, but I know that I am able to deliver my own version of them. I accompany my singing with the Celtic harp or Spanish guitar. During concerts I do some story telling around the songs, sometimes in the form of a myth or a fairy tale, sometimes by sharing about my own traveling experiences.

Next to singing traditional songs, I also perform my own songs, that have a dreamy character and are highly influenced by the different musical styles I’ve been singing over the last years.

ONDAS DO MAR
Fado & Poetry

This is a performance in which spoken word and poetry are interwoven with Portuguese Fados. The performance tells a story which is very close to my own heart and experience. Simultaneously it tells about the meaning of the Fados I sing. This performance is a co-creation with Timo. He has a very unique understanding of this music, which adds a musical and emotional depth to it. It is an honour and such a joy for me to be playing this together with Timo.  


UPCOMING CONCERT ONDAS DO MAR:
21st of JUNE, 5-6 PM
Arte & Bamboo tea villas, Gianyar Bali

FULL MOON CACAO CEREMONIES

Music combined with drinking pure, raw cacao in a ceremonial way. Cacao is a plant that has many health benefits: it’s a great source of antioxidants, the highest plant-based source of iron, full of magnesium which benefits the heart and brain, contains more magnesium than cow milk and last but not least is full of bliss chemicals (serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine) that make cacao a natural mood elevator. It has the power to create a natural high. Cacao is a true heart opener and it’s a beautiful experience to share a listening experience from this open state.

As a girl I have always been in love with chocolate, the darker, the better. And the story ‘Chocolat’ made me feel very tempted to become a chocolatier. When I first heard about cacao-ceremonies I was a little bit skeptical, to be fair. But since I loved chocolate so much, I didn’t see any harm in giving it a try. My personal growth is so much influenced by cacao. I gained many insights, sometimes visions and, most all, it created so much joy and a connection to my heart that is deeper than ever.

Gwendolynn means full moon. Within the ceremony we will drink cacao in a ceremonial way: we share intentions, meditate together, I will say something about the moon and share songs. I will follow my intuition each full moon in what the ceremony will look like, so different elements might be added. During the concerts we create a safe space as a group. There is room to share where you’re at and to exchange experiences, or to remain silent. To sit down in stillness, to lie down, to meditate or to dance, whatever you feel like doing during the ceremony.
