About the Musicians

Egemen Sanli is a modern dervish, carrying the flag of his Turkish roots as a musician. He plays the sitar alongside other ethnic instruments (shamisen, saz, hang and handpan drums, banjo, flutes). He utilizes beats, loops and tanpura machines to compliment his joyful improvisations based on traditional Eastern ragas. He lives and performs regularly in the Bay Area; he is also a certified Yoga teacher. 

Phoenix Song (formerly known as Amber Field) has been performing since 2004 and was featured in San Francisco Magazine’s Best of the Bay for yoga music in 2009. They have lived in Korea, Nepal, India, Liberia, Peru, and the SF Bay Area and specialize in world fusion. Phoenix Song plays didgeridoo, esraj, djembe, Native flute, harmonium and sings like an angel. They love to free people’s voices and drums in private and group classes.  

Sam Jackson, founder and director of VibrantStillness is a masterful Crystal Bowls player. His resonant melodies and floating harmonics unite the spaces of composition and sound healing. As a founding musician of Grace Cathedral’s Yoga on the Labyrinth, his Crystal Bowls and Paiste Gongs have inspired thousands of yoga practitioners to ground into their moving meditation with a vibrant sense of calm and presence. 

Eliyahu Sills is a highly acclaimed musician of many instruments and deep knowledge of multiple musical traditions, from spiritual music of the Middle East and India to American music of Soul and Jazz and their African roots. He is a leader and collaborator of many projects, most notably, The Qadim Ensemble, which brings together diverse cultures of the Middle East, whose CD reached #7 on Billboard’s World Music charts; and BOLO which blends infectious rhythms of dance music, the improvisation of jazz, the cultural depth of world music, and the soulfulness of devotional kirtan. Eliyahu also performs as a solo artist and with his duo, plays Hindustani Ragas, Middle Eastern Sufi music, and Jewish songs on the oud, ney, and bansuri. Read more.
