Biography

MC YOGI grew up in Northern California, painting graffiti and listening to hip hop.
Inspired by artists like the Beastie Boys and Run DMC, he began writing and
performing his own raps for friends at house parties. He spent most of his high
school years at a group home for at-risk youth, and Hip hop culture provided both

5.0 out of 5 stars Be the Change March 1, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Wow, how inspiring!

I really dislike hip-hip, rap, etc. Not just the sound of it, but the horribly negative messages it often puts out. So when I encountered this album and saw folks like Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, and Bhagavan Das on it I had to pause. When I read the titles and saw the words I was astonished. And when I put the CD on my player and listened I was moved, very very moved. This is a brilliant album, a work of love and inspiration, bhakti yoga at its finest. It moves the body, it moves the soul and mind into great rhythm and harmony. I can't help but wonder what our world would be like if this was playing out of every boom box in the land. What a great thing. Be the change that you want to see in the world, just like Gandhi. Wow. Peace out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative, inspiring, excellent December 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was looking for meditative music when I stumbled into MC Yogis' magical world of kirtan hiphop. This is the most fun telling of religious and inspiring stories I have ever heard. I recommend it to all my friends. Shanti.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC November 9, 2008
By Ainne
Format:Audio CD
I bought this on a whim and it's absolutely awesome. My kids love it and are learning while dancing and singing along. I just read an article on the artist in LA Yoga Magazine. I hope he releases another CD soon. We all can't stop listening to this one. Namaste.

I thought this would be a great way to introduce yoga philosphy to children with upbeat music. I was surprised by how much I enjoy it. My grandson and I have enjoyed the music together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! January 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I confess I utterly refused to let my kids listen to rap. I couldn't stand even being next to a car on the street with the vibs. Seemed so negative. Well I bought this based on Kriahna Das being in on it and the reviews - last night found me dancing, lost in a bakti fest with my 13 and 10 year olds breakdancing and pumping the harmonium, thunping the cello (wait till my 20+ year olds hear about this!). All of us were dancing,laughing and this is how it ought to be. Wow! Come on MC Yogi & friends can you line up another one like this? JAI!

5.0 out of 5 stars still love this CD December 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to this CD for over a year and still find that it lifts my mood every time I hear it. Especially good after a difficult day at work or when stuck in slow traffic. It seems like such an improbable mix -- providing both information about Hindu mythology and heart felt inspiration in such an upbeat way -- but it works!
