Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) October 10, 2008
France's house music DJ and producer Tom Glide and New York City singer and writer, Ekayani are premiering "Yoga on the Dance Floor and Sanskrit Mantras" on Tuesday, October 21, 2008 on The English Breakfast Radio and Televsion show in Amsterdam, NL just one day before the duo attend the Amsterdam Dance Event. Broadcast from the Pakhuis de Zweiger, the show airs on 99.4 FM and 104.6 Cable between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. The Amsterdam Dance Event or ADE, is the largest conference and party of it's kind designed specifically for house music and is now in it's thirteenth year.
Yoga on the Dance Floor is being met with excitement from industry professionals from around the globe with Money to Burn a topical song about the world financial crisis and Here's the Light on serenity, taking off simultaneously as hit singles. The album described as "cutting edge and revelatory", is sung in Sanskrit, Bengali, and English has its appeal to world music lovers assured. Accessible to everyday people, club kids and yogis, nirvana has never been so easy.
The albums source material adapted from The Sri Isopanishad, Bhagavata Purana, Vaisnava songs, and the Bhagavad Gita As It Is, the epic Sanskrit poem addressing the diverse paths of yoga, provide most of the text with four tracks primarily in English. Yoga instructors seeking to spice up their classes and steer away from the bland "new age" fare would do well putting the cut "Third Eye" in heavy rotation as it won New Century's Best Urban Track 2007.
The CD collection of ten songs comes with an extra treat: The directors cut of "Here's The Light" video in a quicktime file by Roberto Serrini (Kanye West), featuring the exotic chanteuse Ekayani, shot entirely in the East Village of New York City. The album is available immediately for digital download on BeatsDigital.com http://www.beatsdigital.com/artist/105237 and Isound.com http://www.isound.com/ekayani_and_the_tom_glide_space
An online store for fans wanting a hard copy is coming soon. Check their myspace page for updates. The duo will be performing in New York City at The Knitting Factory's Old Office Saturday, November 15, 2008. Advance tickets are available at the venue or at the online box office.
