Description:

Join us for a soulful evening of call and response singing! In his musical career, Moroccan American, Joey Lugassy, has been nominated for two Emmy Awards for Best Song in a Drama Series, wrote a song and did a music video for Amnesty International that is currently in eight countries and sang for Zen Master and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Thich Nhat Hanh. Joey had been studying metaphysics for 30 years before he first tried yoga. He was instantly enraptured with its quality of moving prayer. This led to bhakti and kirtan; the path of devotion through chant. He has studied with Jai Uttal and since performed with Jai, Dave Stringer, Krishna Das, Wah!, Bhagavan Das, Shaman's Dream and recently at the Greek Theatre with India.Arie. He is often co-leads retreats at Esalen Institute with Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Dr. Robert Svoboda, Saul David Raye, Michael Franti & others. He enjoys offering a non-sectarian approach to the deities, viewing them as symbols or aspects of consciousness.
