Who would believe that we could run a circle
dancing holiday from a gulet! We'll find
interesting places for you to dance on and off
the boat.

Anne has run circle dancing holidays in
Croatia for many years and loved her
experience on one of our singing cruises - so
much so that she wanted to dance here.

A chance conversation with a guest led to the creation of our first music holiday.

We'd been hiking through pine forest and olive groves, watching gambolling lambs and
wild goats cross our path; breathing in the scent of spring flowers and feeling humbled by
the nature in which we had immersed ourselves.

Eventually returning to East Meets West for a refreshing swim followed by tea and cake, I
was relaxing on a sunbed under the awning next to Audrey who sighed and said "This is
bliss, all I want now is to sing." "Well, go on then" was my rather naive reply. She found
the energy to raise an eyebrow before announcing " Not like that, I mean with my choir.
To be connected with the oneness of singing together in this peaceful, beautiful place".

And so our musical journey began. Audrey introduced me to Roz Walker who runs Global
Harmony in Devon who ran the very first of our Sing & Hike Gulet cruises. Together we
worked out how to combine hiking and singing whilst still providiing plenty of time for
swimming, snorkelling and relaxing. I'm happy to say that Roz has returned many times.

So musicality has arrived at East Meets West. You can combine singing with hiking,
meditation and healing. You can bring along your guitar, ukulele, drum or marakas! You
can even dance too.

To find out more just email
Surya will take you on a musical journey every
day in this peaceful environment.

Explore sound healing, songwriting,
improvisation with voice and rhythms,
percussion, meditation and more.
