In today’s episode, I sit down with DJ Taz Rashid (@DJTazRashid) and we discuss making the shift from corporate life to following your passion and purpose, cultural awakenings, the massive and often forgotten role that music plays in modern yoga, and so much more!
DJ Taz Rashid brings high vibrational energy to any room instantly by mixing the beats and rhythms of Love, Ancient New World, House, Devotional, and all the cosmic sounds. His vision is to be a channel to cause the expansion of all those around by tapping into the creative wisdom of the body and allowing them to feel, let go, and awaken.
Taz has been producing and part of creating mindful events globally over the last few years and as a musician, he plays guitar, piano, Native American Flute, didgeridoo, and hand percussion. He takes these instruments and connect to source energy and what comes through has the ability to move his crowd to connect to their higher selves. Recently he has been performing and DJing at evens such as Yoga Journal Conference, Wanderlust Festivals, Arise Festival, Bhakti Fest, Bali Spirit Fest, and many more high vibrational gatherings while sharing the stage with global acts such as Xavier Rudd, Michael Franti, Trevor Hall, Nahko Bear, MC Yogi, DJ Drez, and more…
In addition to producing and performing music for yoga and meditation, Taz focuses on guiding students toward developing inspirational music (playlists) for their classes. He emphasizes breath beat sequencing, texture, and a wide range of sound sourcing that, with awareness, can be combined to foster a mix of energizing, supportive, and healing experiences.
Taz also composes original music for use by mindful brans, tv, movies, events, and other media with the vision of spreading an energy vibration of peace, love, and unity.
Please enjoy this episode with the extremely talented, DJ Taz Rashid.
