MC Yogi's sophomore album Pilgrimage has just hit Number #1 on the iTunes world music chart!
Nicholas Giacomini's moniker comes from his combined love for hip-hop and yoga (he's a yogi).
He and his wife Amanda Giacomini split their time between teaching at their yoga studio and traveling to perform.
His music is a mix of all kinds of genres, ranging from devotional to Bollywood, to reggae to soul.
The teachings he offers in his music highlights an alternative lifestyle that promotes peace and serenity with oneself and those around them.
He explains on his website what inspired him to do the album:
“This record is the soundtrack to my journey to India, circling the sacred mountain Arunachala in the heart of Tamil Nadu, and discovering the intricate root system of yoga. It’s a sonic trip, a journey toward the Self, toward what the yoga masters call the Supreme Soul.”
During his travels he also managed to collaborate with some of the best artists in India, and the world, ranging from world-renowned sitarist Deobrat Mishra of Benares, to vocalist Mahesh Vinayakram.
