When I reposted MC Yogi’s instagram this morning, I got props in a tweet.
I am definitely burning up my 15 minutes of fame.
It looks like he also got props from Trevor Hall, another peaceful warrior who is a favorite of mine.
But this is great because I first heard of MC Yogi from a yoga teacher, and heard a track by East Forest in Genell Huston’s Expanding class at Lila East End Studio in Portland, ME.
I was listening to Ritual Mystical in the car on the way to and from yoga this morning, and I can’t wait to use it in class.
The second delight of 2015 was learning on Facebook of MC Yogi’s new album, “Only Love is Real.” Those who pre-ordered the album, like myself, received the track “Road Home,” featuring Trevor Hall.
MC Yogi is someone who marries hip hop and yoga themes like Hindu mythology, and the importance of breathing, mindfulness and meditation. Trevor Hall is another in the genre, with a little more subtlety on the themes, and a roots–rock–reggae backdrop for his raps. To have the both of them on the same track “blew the top of my head off”. Or to speak in a very 20th century way, sent me into paroxysms of delight. Enjoy!
