Yogi Prateado is a multi-instrumentalist, dj, and source-rer of sound. He is co-founder of Ecstatic Dance Berlin, and has performed in concerts and festivals all over the world. Prateado sticks to no genre but the mood of the moment, following the hummingbird wherever it takes us. Mixing grinding beats with crystalize melodies, Prateado cultivates the soil for an ecological music that moves from the inside out.
Prateado performs internationally on the Hang, with sundry percussion, and as DJ Prateado. He is a certified TaKeTiNa Teacher, has studied with acclaimed jazz saxaphonist Steve Coleman, and began taking drum lessons with Todd Bryson at age 3. In 2006 Prateado began a sacred musical journey with the PANArt Hang, and since then has taken his musicality to a new level, incorporating sacred music into his life and works. Creative ceremonial music is now a main modality of Yogi’s life work, while he continues to support the various groups he participates in and organizes with percussion and voice.
