“Luc Acke sings straight from and to the heart. His charismatic voice and enchanting melodies will carry you to places of soothing stillness and ecstatic joy.” – Dave Stringer
Luc Acke is a singer-songwriter, mantra singer and yoga instructor from Antwerp, Belgium.
Luc has shared the stage with internationally renowned kirtan artists like Dave Stringer and Donna De Lory, and spiritual leader, physician and author Dr. Deepak Chopra.
Since 2008, he has independently released an EP of acoustic pop songs, WHYDENTITY, two critically acclaimed mantra albums, BOLO! & HOME, a full length English language album, entitled LOVE, and an EP in his mother tongue Dutch, HOU VAN HAAR.
Constantly in the process of creating new material, Luc has a number of releases lined up: a new album of Sanskrit mantra with working title NAMASTE, an album of KUNDALINI mantras, as well as a cover album for SAVASANA.
After his discovery of kirtan at a Jivamukti yoga workshop in 2008, Luc started merging his yogic practice with his passion as a singer-songwriter, composing chants on harmonium and guitar, leading kirtans, and playing live at yoga classes in Belgium and abroad.
Kirtan is a practice that quiets the mind and opens the heart. Singing ancient Sanskrit mantras, kirtan helps to remove obstacles and to bring us to the center of our being. When we chant, breathe, and move to the same melodies and rhythms, we improve our personal and universal well being. Sing and surrender to an experience of freedom, peace, and limitless joy…
If you don’t particularly like singing (along) you are more than welcome to sit back, relax, and enjoy a heart warming concert!
