Shortly after, Hall left South Carolina for Idyllwild Arts Academy in California where he studied classical guitar and was introduced to the practices of yoga and meditation, which would greatly influence his life and his music. 


Hall’s music, a blend of roots and folk music with touches of electronic element
s, is imbued with a deep love of Eastern Mysticism. This powerful symbiosis fostered a deep connectivity with his growing fan base and Trevor quickly matured into a leader of the burgeoning conscious musical community.

THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS, was his first independent release and the #1 music campaign of 2017 on Kickstarter. The album was released on June 1st, 2018 and premiered at #4 on the iTunes Alternative Charts. In the lead up to the new album, IN AND THROUGH THE BODY, Hall released a 2020 single featuring Brett Dennen, Put Down What You Are Carrying, which immediately became one of the top streamed songs in his scene.

Hall 
and his wife, Emory, created the Where the Rivers Meet Foundation in 2020 in order to continue their humanitarian efforts in both India and Nepal. “After decades spent traveling across India and Nepal,” they say, “we were inspired to create a foundation that could give back to those lands and people that touched and impacted our lives so immensely.”


IN AND THROUGH THE BODY

Her memory is capacious and flow sick like contagious- so she began to share her words and release them free from their pages.

Realizing making music and art is the only thing that can quench her thirst LFangz is here to chomp down and invites all to join the feast of engaging with this human experience!

Original Currency: Mapacho Vol. I

Medicinal Hip Hop with Wayra & YashAkasha

Primordial presence meets purposed creative flow… and it’s fresh to death. Gifted sacred-song teacher, Wayra Wagner, and interdimensionally touring MC, YashAkasha, have joined forces to form a multilingual domestic collaboration like no other. Together they co-create the ultimate Medicinal Hip Hop fusion for the Current Era. The grooves make you move, the vocals are rich and rootsy, and the lyricism is right on the money. Through the ancient codex of rhythm and rhyme, we gain access to a secret alphabet, a universal language, and a supreme intelligence. This music merges worlds, drawing on cross-cultural roots, from Wayra’s Quechua-Muisca heritage to Yasha’s initiations in Kabbalah to the original principles of underground Hip Hop itself. They will be sharing songs from the new project where Mamacha+Papacho=Mapacho Vol. I…

 

YashAkasha has been performing poetry on stage and rhyming with a passion since his earliest childhood memories. Soon after his first homemade music video quickly gained thousands of views, his song for Standing Rock was selected as a finalist for a Hip Hop competition by Talib Kweli and Xiuhtezcatl Martinez. He then went on to release his first album, Rapture (2017), which was well-received, including press coverage in Delumin/a online journal. His second album, Renaissance (2020) is a recent release by Original Currency prod. Treaphort feat. Nirete “Amor” Llopis & published in collaboration with Golden Turtle Sound and YA Productions (a branch of Worldchangers Organization and YashAkasha LLC).

Dream Seed

Full Sound Healing Ensemble

Dream Seed is a two-hour sound bath hosted by members of Golden Drum and Didge Project. Shamanic chanting, mantras, overtone singing, Native American songs, indigenous music, didgeridoos, crystal singing bowls, bells, gongs, harmoniums, tuning forks and other overtone-emitting instruments are used to create an environment conducive to deep relaxation and inward investigation. Participants are led through guided meditations and sound healing practices designed to harmonize body, mind and spirit.

 

“Tonight’s event was a spiritual ceremony first and a concert second. Not because the music wasn’t the most transcendent but because the function felt like it was to to connect with our souls and to elevate us and to heal us rather than simply to deliver music for enjoyment or entertainment.

 

It was the sound of the soul to align the souls to the greater spirit and it was effective and it was really powerful and it was spontaneous. It was loving. It brought us to the peace that does surpass understanding.”

 

— Alex Grey
