About HONA

A gathering where time stops. When unity is the only reality. Unity expressed as love. Love as sound.

🌴
On the beautiful island of Naxos, deep in nature’s pure landscape, where the sun sets golden and the sea meets the sky.
In the heart of the Cyclades, where the seat of Poseidon once was, we are willing to offer and receive our blessings in sound.
🌞
For the third year in a row, HONA 2020 will be hosted at the beautiful beach of Agia Anna, in Maragas Camping.
🌺
Blue skies, crystal clear water, wonderful performances, a wide variety of musically oriented workshops, mediterranean cuisine and the ethereal sound of handpan surrounding all these.
