Announcing the re-release of the timeless Prana Pulse album, a 2012 collaboration between Shaman’s Dream (Sahuna Love) and Bluetech (Evan Marc).
Prana Pulse offers a seamlessly flowing soundscape to compliment a 70-minute movement practice. The intentional arrangement weaves a sonic basket, in which yogis, dancers, flow artists, somatic explorers, and passionate spirits can cultivate their creative expression. This journey is a path of curiosity, freedom, inspiration, and celebration; gently guiding the heart to open and experience beauty, connection, and love.
The practice of yoga is fueled and guided by the flow of prana – life energy. Shamans Dream invites us to let go and lose ourselves in this infinite rhythm. In their first-time collaboration, Craig Kohland and electronic music producer Bluetech arrange a beautifully flowing soundscape that perfectly complements a 70-minute yoga/dance journey.
Bluetech is a DJ/producer who creates downtempo music with significant emphasis on melody in his productions, and his works often demonstrate an influence from dub and ambient techno. Bluetech has also been releasing albums under the names Evan Marc and Evan Bartholomew.
