Drishti Beats Festival 2022 (188)

Drishti Beats Yoga and Music Festival Press Release

Drishti Beats Yoga and Music Festival - Snowmass Village, CO July 8 - 10, 2022

Awaken your soul-deep in the mountains of Colorado for three days and nights of transformative music, yoga, and bliss with world-renowned performances, DJ sets, yoga classes, lectures, and beyond.

Drishti Beats was born out of the meshing of yoga and high vibrational dance music passions. A burning desire to create something genuinely unique between the yoga and dance music worlds came together perfectly through a fiery passion and crystal clear vision, and the Drishti Beats Vinyasa Flow Experience was born. Initially starting on small stages at niche festivals around fitness conventions and yoga gatherings, the Drishti brand has now prospered into a well-known, must-see yoga and live music experience. Drishti, as a band, has dominated significant music festivals like EDC Las Vegas, Lightning in a Bottle, European staple Mysteryland and many events in between. The live band provides chill electronic beats, melodic live voice, rap/beatbox, percussion, and saxophone to curate an experience truly one of a kind.

Drishti Beats Yoga and Music Festival will provide an eclectic yet refined selection of some of the world’s best DJs, yoga instructors, lecturers, and beyond.

About “Gemini Eyes”. Livetronica band and yoga collective Drishti Beats is excited to announce the release of their new collaboration with Jeffrey Franca’s new project ETHNO titled “Gemini Eyes.” Best known as the drummer for Thievery Corporation, Jeffrey produced the track, lead Drishti Beats’ singer Ariel provides the vocals, and Ricardo of Drishti plays masterful saxophone. Lead singer Ariel’s highly emotive vocals set the stage for the track’s super smooth yet sexy vibe. Seamlessly fusing reggae, ambient sounds, jazz, and downtempo electronica, “Gemini Eyes” is the perfect mixture of organic and electronic based sounds. The single was inspired by the feeling one gets when connecting with their soulmate or twin flame. With lyrics like “Glowing in your presence, connected and reflecting, is it too good to be true, I see my soul inside you,” “Gemini Eyes” exudes a euphoric yet sensual vibe. The single will be released via all major digital music platforms on Friday, June 11th.

And when you are in that time of bliss, there is a powerful energy that fuels you.”

Root Down - Drishti Beats

Live Yoga Bass Collective Drishti Beats Releases "Root Down"

Root Down - Drishti Beats

Drishti Beats is breaking chains and taking charge in 2020 as they deliver and dominate the downtempo electronic sound that connects us together as one. One sound, one vibe, one element that all festival goers will enjoy time and time over.

By Kaelyn Gray

Our favorite live yoga bass collection and family electronic group Drishti Beats is back with another single, titled “Root Down.” Signature to its global bass driven sound design, a peaceful and atmospheric introduction paves the way to euphonious instrumentals. Violin strings transport you into a mystic wonderland, exactly where the artwork displays, until you take a sharp turn into a worldly and bass-driven expedition. As you journey on, rapper Alec’s inspiring and hyphy lyrical flow overlays the innovative soundscape. “Root Down” juxtaposes complex layers of sound with a soothing environmental ambience. The result is the perfect concoction of sonic reverie that leaves you fulfilled by merely being alive.
