Truth for the mind

Passion for the heart

Beauty for the soul



Trusting fellow humans is priceless and empowers you. Know yourself first to better know the others, seek knowledge and give and receive love.

(Lyrics from a song) ALI FARKA TOURE



Independence from modern day noise and stress and the complexities of contemporary life is our challenge. We try to create small sanctuaries of resonance. Our music, literature, art exhibitions and events are meant to reflect this goal and you are invited to take part in the work process through our different projects.

Starting in 1998 the 'RASA Sound and Music Nights' came into existence. These were whole night concerts featuring artists of the continents, concentrating on the contemplative and sublime aspects of world, classical and jazzmusic - particularly the high art of improvisation. The philosophy of RASA TEA TIME is based on the work and the '99 axioms' of Al Gromer Khan and deals with the translation from ordinary states of mind to the exquisite planes of thinking. The Rasa Tea Time Edition presents contemporary Ambient, classical, Electronica and music from the tea-traditions. AGK, key figure of Ambient and contemplative music since 1975, acting as player, composer and curator. His distinctive unique Paisley Music style has won him a circle of friends throughout the world. This was started after establishing the RASA MUSIC PUBLISHING company in 2004, followed by audio-books publications in 2006 and bbooks in 2009. The KHAN ART GALLERY opend 2011.
