ANDAGIFT // INSPIRE was founded 11th of January 2018 by us, Lára & Tinna. Originally we started to co-create through music when Lára was working for KÍTON & Tinna playing with the all female rap band RVKDTR but our background is music, acting & performance. At this time we were both fronting big feminist movements in Iceland & we were working hard. At the same time we both had the experience of working ourselves into burn-out so we felt a deep need to create a platform where we could offer people a safe space to slow down, fill their own tank & pracise self love & gentleness.
We held our first Kirtan together in 2017 which was a big success & from there our company was born ANDAGIFT // INSPIRE. We started with a small seed, we grew fast & now our community is our family & we are blooming. Today MÖNTRUKVÖLD (our kirtan) is our most popular event.
We are so grateful for all the support & the love we have been given throughout the years & we can’t wait to create more juiciness into this world. Our passion is to bring inspiration & wellness into the society through ceremonies, music & meditation. Our mission is to create, relax & spread love & inspiration into this world!
