about us

Noreen van Holstein & Lalita van Lamsweerde

Lalita van Lamsweerde and Noreen van Holstein brought 'the Magic of India' to the Netherlands for the first time in the summer of 2023. Together with Ruigoord, 50 years of free thinking, creativity, diversity and 'Vashudaiva Kutumbakam' (the world is one family) are celebrated. Lalita and Noreen both lived in India for many years and have since played an active role in the cultural sector, both in India and the Netherlands. Together they have the LaLa Foundation.
50 years ago, the founders of Ruigoord made an overland trip to the southern Indian coastal state of Goa. There on the beaches of Goa, LaLaLand was founded in 2018, founded by Noreen van Holstein and Deepjyoti Deka. LaLaLand Festival Goa celebrated its fifth edition in December 2023.

We now have a fantastic small team and LaLaLand Festival is created with many volunteers and enthusiasts.
