MC Yogi’s latest release Pilgrimage was honed over years of yoga study and playing festival stages large and small. Ever improving upon his powerhouse mix of hip-hop and yoga lore, Yogi describes his latest release as “a sonic trip, a journey toward the Self, toward what the yoga masters call the Supreme Soul.”
2008 shoestring-budget debut, Elephant Power, connected with both hip hop fans and new age seekers and still floats atop the world music chart on iTunes. His debut albums extraordinary success brought invitations to play in dance clubs and yoga festivals all over the world.
MC Yogi has definitely refined his sound here. It’s much less a hipster play on Hinduism (Ganesh is Fresh) and much more of a cohesive and well put together mash up of beats and conscious lyrics (Breath Control).
