Join us for this uplifting, energizing, fun, and intimate show performed live by MC YOGI in the iconic and historic not to be missed Sheridan Opera House! Telluride Yoga Festival couldn't be more thrilled to bring you this authentic voice in the yoga community to Telluride in such an intimate and super cool venue.
MC YOGI specializes in a mystical fusion of styles that skillfully combines his love of yoga and hip-hop. A native of Northern California, MC YOGI spent his formative years at a group home for at-risk boys. It was there that he began honing his rap skills. At 18, he experienced a life-changing meditation session with a famous Indian spiritual leader. He spent the ensuing two years immersed in the studies of yoga, devotional chanting, and philosophy but he never lost his love for reggae, electronica and hip-hop.
His latest singles “Golden State of Mind” and “Spiritual Graffiti” are currently available on all music platforms. His last album, RITUAL MYSTICAL (feat East Forest), made history by going #1 on the Electronic charts — Aug. 2016. In 2015, his ONLY LOVE IS REAL album debuted #12 Billboard Heatseekers + #24 iTunes Hiphop — featuring guest performances from Matisyahu, Trevor Hall, and Dominic Balli.
