Corruption takes many forms, and has become more refined since the days of brown paper bags.

Future Sound of Yoga, Coorabell Hall, Saturday

The Byron Spirit Festival is thrilled to present a hot winter’s night of transformative, tribal dance with Future Sound of Yoga at Coorabell Hall on Saturday. Future Sound of Yoga are Angel and Matt Singmin, a husband–wife duo who met at the Glastonbury Festival in 2005. Drawn together by their love of dance, yoga and electronic music, their relationship and life’s passions have led them to create this unique performance act that has been making waves on dance floors and in yoga studios around the world.

The support is DJ Chris Deckker, founder of Earthdance International, the largest synchronised music event for world peace, uniting more than 350 global locations, as well as the internationally renowned band Medicine Drum, early pioneers of electronica/live fusion.

Chris recently returned to Byron Bay after living abroad over 20 years. His sets express his world exploits featuring the latest in global electronica from the Bumping Balkan Breaks to Spicy Indian Dub Step. There’s no yoga or dance experience necessary to deeply enjoy this pulse-racing evening with Future Sound of Yoga and Chris Deckker. Please wear comfortable gear, and let our guides take care of the rest.

Saturday at Coorabell Hall. 8pm. Tickets at the door $20/$15. Chai and cakes by Open Table.
