"As a child I used to imagine myself as an individual climbing up a mountain of knowledge and skills. With each day the view below the mountain would get wider and wider, giving me more understanding and viewpoint manoeuvrability. I knew that this would make me productive and valuable for the world. If this relation of affinity, knowledge acquisition, skills acquisition and productivity is held together by working hard, giving equal close attention to all units in the process and investing all I can, then I would be able to make a relevant contribution to humanity and other universal aspects"
Ramón Kailani (1985) decided from this moment of philosophical realisation to continue walking this vertical path day after day for the rest of his life.
He has been able to conduct a professional, artistic and intellectual life from an early age.
At the age of 15 he started writing, recording and performing his own music. At the age of 18 he had already recorded two solo albums and performed in many different concert halls, club venues, festivals, radio and TV stations. After finishing high school (specialised in natural sciences: mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics) he started his studies at the University of Amsterdam, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Conservatory of Amsterdam and Bath Spa University-England (literature, bio medical science/neuroscience, guitar/composition and composition respectively). Besides these three studies he also managed to be active as a journalist, performing and recording musician, composer and entrepreneur.
After his studies he was based in both Amsterdam and Sevilla for 1,5 years, going back and forth between these two cities working solo and with highly acknowledged artists and organisations globally.
He is currently based in Amsterdam working as a composer, academic thinker, writer, concept developer and performer. Kailani brings the unique combination of artistic and scientific expertise to the development of his projects. His multidisciplinary background allows for the generation of knowledge based upon the merging of new theories and ideas.
Ramón Kailani belongs to the oldest tribes of a small ethnic society that dates back 4.000 years. This small ethnic society has traditions related to nature, streaming river water and spiritual peace.
He is fluent in English, Dutch, Spanish, Arabic and Aramaic.
For a long time he volunteered at an Alzheimer's institute once a week trying to improve the health of the patients by making music, reading tales, conversating with them and taking them outside for a walk.
An interdisciplinary thinker, who tries to make a link and to take away obstacles between natural sciences, social sciences and the arts. Ramón Kailani uses well thought reductionism as a strategy to understand our universe and as a counter-stone for scientific methods. His goal is to achieve relevant ideas/methods/products that can be valuable for human society and other universal beings and aspects.
