Cheb i Sabbah and Friends – October 24, NYCSeptember 29th, 2010
Dj Cheb I Sabbah’s North African and “Desi” fusions will be paired with the music of Brooklyn and French duo Ekayani and the Tom Glide Space whose own devotional electronica album Yoga on the Dance Floor and Sanskrit Mantras borrows heavily from Reggae Dub and Brazilian flavors with Bengali and Sanskrit being the primary languages. Saturday night’s event at the intimate Rose lounge is poised to deliver a late night dance party and ep release featuring the master Cheb i Sabbah spinning for the dance floor.Â A special performance by vocalist Ekayani celebrates the release ofÂ “Here’s the Light Remixes” by the Tom Glide Space and South Africa’s Beat Pharmacy dj Brendon Moeller .
Sunday’s all inclusive late afternoon and into the night offering suitably titled Yoga on the Dance floor is recommended for those wanting full immersion. It features a yoga class, music, and another dose ofÂ devotional electronica. It all kicks off at 5pm with an All Level Vinyasa Yoga Class instructed by Julie Ziff Sint suitable for beginners with intermediate and advanced variations for a more challenging experience.(Participants are advised to bring a mat). The sacred world music of Gaura Vani As Kindred Spirits, a kirtan band weaving rich ethnic rhythms and melodies follows. Another ecstatic set of electronica with Cheb i Sabbah and Ekayani finishes off the evening. Prepare for lift off.
