Ondalinda means a beautiful wave and represents a new way of life - a new way for people to connect spiritually, elevate their frequency and co-create their future.
At Ondalinda, we produce high-vibration events focused around music, art, charitable giving, and sustainability - to promote this way of living. From music with live bands, ceremonial sounds and famous DJs, to indigenous art, craftsmanship and modern painters, Ondalinda celebrates the Arts in all its forms. Our events encompass ceremonial and spiritual experiences for both body and mind through yoga, meditation and indigenous ceremonies. After a first intimate art & music gathering in Cub*a La Havan*a in 2015, Ondalinda has expanded to Mexico, hosting two events throughout 2016 & 2017 in magical Careyes. Our Ondalinda x Careyes edition celebrates and promotes the vibrant Mexican culture in one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world.
We believe in the importance of art, community, heritage, sustainability, ritual, and connectivity to inspire humankind and reestablish systems that unite us, rather than separate us. As we are learning every day, the current “win-win” model of commerce that has shaped our world is not a sustainable business practice. By focusing only on the exchange of “buy and sell”, we neglect a third exchange - giving back. This is in fact the very element that brings us together and makes the world a more peaceful and harmonious place for us to live.
Our non-profit arm, The Ondalinda Foundation (under the Umbrella of the Many Hats Institute, a registered 501C-3 nonprofit organization), assists indigenous communities in preserving their cultural heritage and cultivating a new generation of interdisciplinary artists and supports different cultural & social projects around the world.
A portion of proceeds generated through the art exhibitions at the annual Ondalinda x Careyes event go towards supporting indigenous communities from throughout Mexico including the Huichol and Purépecha peoples. Over the past two years, we were able to raise over 500,000 MXN in donations. The funds generated have enabled these indigenous communities to invest in basic infrastructure and resources, educating and raising awareness for their causes, and helping them achieve sustainability on a long-term basis.
If you're an artist and are interested in collaborating with us at Ondalinda, we'd love for you to reach out and tell us more.
