He teaches and practices Kundalini Yoga and Sound Yoga/Healing. He focuses on using sound to envelop and transform his students, clients and listeners.
UPDATED: Chris Forsyth
Alex Turnquist has had to cancel this appearance--we hope to book him in the near future. In his place, a fabulous musician from Philadelphia:
Guitarist Chris Forsyth's hypnotic compositions assimilate art rock texture with folk, blues, and experimental influences. His 2012 Kenzo Deluxe LP/CD on Northern Spy has been described as "resonant [and] incisive... a cosmic abstraction of the American guitar tradition, reducing blues, rock, folk and improvisation into their spare, hypnotic base elements." (Philadelphis City Paper). Forsyth was awarded a 2011 Pew Fellowship in the Arts and resides in the City of Philadelphia, USA.
