Wind & Strings for Yoga
Wind and Strings for Yoga is a follow up to Jon Dichter's Bowed Guitar for Yoga and has been used to facilitate yoga practice, as an aid to massage and body work, and has recently been introduced into the medical community to help relax the mind and body. Jon has performed this music live at yoga retreats, churches, and hospitals achieving positive results. He also performs music in the following genres: gypsy jazz (a la Django Reinhardt), blues, singer/songwriter, western swing, modern jazz, folk, and rock. He's attended yoga classes for five years and was first introduced to yoga to facilitate healing as a result of an illness. At low volume, this music can help facilitate healing; at a louder volume each movement stands on it's own as a cohesive song. Marc Berner is a multi-instrumentalist who has been playing flute since childhood, when he began on piccolo; he also plays saxophones, small percussions, and sings. He and Jon met and began playing together in Philadelphia in 1978. Marc has worked and recorded with Noel Paul Stookey (Peter Paul and Mary), Ira Sullivan, Frank Carmelitano, Omar Mesa (Mandrill), Peter Betan, David Feder and Eddie Cornelius. He's currently based in Miami, Florida.
