Evolve Playlist Available by Simon Lewis

This weekend in Melbourne Byron Yoga Centre will be hosting the Evolve Yoga Festival at the Abbostford Convent. I have been working with Trudy Radburn from The Moving Room on a session called Pravana Yoga - Sound, Breath and Movement.

The playlist is available as a download from my online store for $10 and runs for approximately 70 minutes. Alternatively you can listen to in on Mixcloud first if you would like to give it a listen.

Trudy's session in on at 2.45pm in the Evolve Hall

On The Road Again by Simon Lewis

Amanaska are getting ready to load up the tour van and hit the road again, this time in NSW Riverina Region.

We are really looking forward to exploring this part of the world and presenting the Musica Viva show at schools in the region.

On the weekend of the 24th October there are 2 different shows planned. One on the Saturday night with the full Amanaska experience at The Space in Albury and a chilled out acoustic session on Sunday at Howlong Golf Club with Simon and Raleigh.

Evolve 2015 in Melbourne by Simon Lewis

Come and join us for an amazing day of yoga  Sunday the 26th of October. Trudy Radburn and Simon Lewis will be presenting a yoga and music workshop at Evolve Yoga Festival at the Abbotsford Convent. http://www.evolveyogafestival.com.au

As we practice pravana yoga our minds enter into a dance with our bodies. We become integrated via sound, breath and movement to experience the power of connection.

Trudy Radburn is a dancing yogi. She has performed, choreographed, taught and jumped on a mat around the world for over 20 years. She is so grateful to all her teachers locally and globally especially Jayachandran, Angelika Grohmann, Sadie Nardini and Simon Borg Olivier. Trudy recently founded The Moving Room, a tiny yoga studio in Brunswick and teaches her own ‘moving flow’ vinyasa inspired class to as many people that can squeeze in.

Simon Lewis (aka Pravana) is a professional musician who has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and has spent many years travelling the world performing and recording as Amanaska. Pravana was the result of wanting to create a soundtrack to support yoga practice by calming the mind initially then supporting the movements and rhythms of the body throughout the session, to finish with a peaceful moment for savasana.

A French Flavour for Bastille Day by Simon Lewis

It's been almost ten years since I finished work on the second Amanaska album 'Circles'. The song 'Sleep' has appeared on many compilations around the globe since then, and had almost 600,00 plays on one YouTube clip posted from Buddha Bar Volume IX.

The inclusion on the Buddha Bar compilation led to me being invited to compose 6 new tracks for a project called Buddha Bar Ocean.

I flew to Paris for 10 days for the final production days and enjoyed the amazing hospitality of the George V Records crew and their fine restaurants (my favourite being the Buddha Bar of course).

Paris has always been one of my favourite cities so what better way to mark the 10 year anniversary of this song than to release a French version for Bastille Day 2015.

Raleigh Williams worked on the French translations and delivered a wonderful vocal performance in the studio a few weeks agp.

The track is available now from the online store or worldwide on iTunes soon.

Enjoy, Simon

Buddha Bar Ocean

Three years after the birth of the buddha-bar Nature concept, Allain Bougrain Dubourg and the George V Records team form an alliance, for our listening pleasure.
More specialized, more worked, but still magic and dreamy; buddha-bar Ocean takes you in an aquatic travel around the world; from the unique marine depths of Brittany’s coasts to the impressive breaking Australian waves.
On the video side, more than 500 hours of footage were edited to keep only the best: 12 video clips (of approximately 3minutes 30) from the of Nature Productions team.
On the music side, different artists from the four corners of the world have collaborated to form a bunch of thousand aromas: Amanaska (Australia) signs 6 titles more appealing one than the other. Daniel Masson also worked hard to make two new gems.
This prestigious alliance offers us a wonderful DVD, with incredible images ringing the alarm to save our planet. Let us react and act!

On the Road Again by Simon Lewis

Amanaska have hit the road again with a fully loaded van complete with surfboards on top. We are doing a 14 show tour of south west Victoria for Musica Viva. Had had a great time so far in the Geelong region and arrived in Warnambool this afternoon ready for more tomorrow. The sunsets have been amazing and Matt and I even managed 2 sunset surf sessions in. It is always a pleasure touring with Matt, Raleigh and Vinod.
