The WE:MANTRA project was initiated in 2012 by Don Niño combining his mystical folk and his personal ap- proach of the Indian sitar with Cubenx’s minimalists arrangements and rhythms.
Exploring a cosmic tale, the duo developed a unique live show around the concept of cycle of repeated patterns and short texts in English.
Visual artist Antoine Schmitt enhanced the project creating a unique lighting device based on the cycles and repetitions specific to mantras. Visual and music can then interact in a joint cosmology with the substance, rhythms and space as well as in the structure, temporality and energy.
