About band

THE MAN-TRA BAND IS A GROUP OF FRIENDS WHO FOUND SOLACE IN THE SOUNDS OF ANCIENT MANTRAS, DECIDING TO SHARE THE RESULTING TREASURE WITH OTHERS. AROUND 2008 THE BAND'S ACTIVITY WAS BASED MAINLY ON MEETINGS AND SINGING AMONGST THEMSELVES, AND AMONG FRIENDS. A FEW PERFORMANCES BEFORE AN AUDIENCE CHANGED ALL THAT.

About band

The band Man-Tra are a group of friends who found solace in the sounds of ancient mantras,
they decided to share the resulting treasure with others. Until 2008, the band's activity was based
mainly on meetings and singing amongst themselves, and among friends. They were involved in
a few music concerts recorded for video/audio
In Autumn 2008 because of initiative and encouragement of Anna Fijałkowska, the band started rehearsing regularly
and quickly shaped their repertoire:
 
With the advent of Autumn 2010, members of the group decided to actively encourage
meditation, not just through their concerts. From Early October 2010, on a regular basis, they started
giving meditation workshops. At these workshops, you can learn meditation techniques,
which for many years were practiced by members of the band .
Dates for coming activities can be found in the 'News' section.
 
              Great audience at the concerts, a great inspiration and encouragement for us to give more and more
          about meditation. I am happy that we enriched our meetings with the public and other interested, organizing
          meditation workshops.           
                                       
                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Ania
 
The band's name comes from the word "mantra" that,significantly,has two syllables:"Man" - means the mind, and "Tra" - means to draw away. Thus,
the entire expression determines the elevation of the mind over matters of everyday life, and problems surrounding the World
to a state of rest, solace and tranquility.           
 
               The sound of mantras contains a different, better world. I am glad that through our concerts and workshops
           of meditation, people have the opportunity to experience it.
