Amsterdam (The Netherlands) based Audio & Visual Creative Agency fuelled by Shamanism, founded by KiKi TOAO & ROMBOUT.
THE SHAMANiAC MOVEMENT originally started as a shamanic art and music project which developed into a professionalized version of what we began with:
One huge spiritual, magickal and shamanically creative experiment.
Since 2019 we also run a record label: SHAMANiAC RECORDS.
Today our Movement is functioning as a platform for a modest but tight-knit community in The Netherlands, and is slowly spreading around the globe.
Our primary goal is to gather people for spiritual development and creative experiment. Aim of our activities is to elevate our souls and spirits and create awareness, openness and acceptation of a spiritual lifestyle.
Our work is deeply rooted in the creation and experience of music.
We are averse to institutional religion and guruship; we prefer to keep our feet on the ground – how else can you dance?
KIKI TOAO & ROMBOUT
Kiki Toao and Rombout are DJ’s and music producers based in Amsterdam, owners of record label Shamaniac Records. They have over 20 years of DJ experience and are producing and releasing a wide range of electronic music; as founders of The Shamaniac Movement currently also working on shamanic ceremonies and art.
They gained a reputation for versatility and ability to play long, dynamic DJ sets.
Their broad taste and limitless interest in music accounts for adventurous and energetic DJ sets. Dirty, escapistic and moody are the words to define their style with, whether it be house music, techno, psychedelic rock or full on industrial and breakbeat.
They met in 2003 as resident DJ’s for AsItBreaks in Club Amuse (now Sugar Factory) in Amsterdam. Even though they had never met before, they were asked to play back-to-back, which has proven to be a good match ever since.
They had both been playing individually since the 90s for several organizations; Rombout played on a regular basis for Subunited in Paradiso and Kiki had just started her professional DJ career by playing for Roy Avni’s Electronation in the Melkweg.
In collaboration with the Fragile Breaks collective they organized monthly parties in Studio 80 and Wilhelmina Pakhuys from 2005 until 2007.
Other venues and events they are playing and have played at are Sassafras, Ruigoord, Kabouterhuys, Love Foundation, Paradiso, Marktkantine, Wild As The Moon/Gardens of Babylon, HitnRun Soundsystem, Mazzo, Gashouder, Lowlands, Namasté, Pand 14, Errorkrew, Dance Valley, Club 11, Wicked Jazz Sounds, plus many others, and you will find them on a regular basis playing at private and secret parties.
