Trippy Sama is a world music project bringing together musicians and dancers from all parts of the world. Their music reflects influences from classical, folk and tribal styles.
The project started with a fundamental idea of merging NAD (vibrations). They believe in the cosmic connection amongst themselves and every ear in the world, aiming at natural healing by the power of trippy sounds giving the listeners a mysterious, intense and an emotional experience.
The incredible voices, experimental dance forms, ambient soundscapes, tribal percussions,
DIY instruments like the ‘ragaphone’, merged together, are the composite layers of the holy sound of Trippy Sama.
