iTunes Editors’ Notes

When San Francisco’s Nicholas Giacomini isn't writing graffiti or teaching yoga with his wife, Amanda, he's most likely performing or recording as MC Yogi. Pilgrimage is an outstanding sophomore album boasting 19 tracks (20 with the bonus version) that seamlessly fuse worldbeat and reggae with hip-hop, electronica, klezmer, jazz, and dance pop—all the while musing on Hindu-based themes. Following a quirky, minute-long intro, “Ganesha (Sound the Horn)” properly sets the tone with a melodic horn section and vintage organ notes looped under MC Yogi rhyming and singing alongside samples of female Indian vocals and groovy sitar-shredding. “Hanuman” drops harder beats and skronky saxophone to blatantly (and brilliantly) recall The Beastie Boys’ “Brass Monkey” as MC Yogi rhymes a narrative about a simian Brahman deity. Some droning harmonium notes help give the Sanskrit-sung “Jai Sita Ram” a mellow, meditative feeling. Similarly, “I Am That” pulses with repetition similar to the mantra rhythms practiced in transcendental meditation. “Give Love” closes with catchy reggae melodies.

Yoga ah

Way to go MC happy for you!!! Would love to win a CD!! so exciting..... Aum Namo Shiva Aum

A trip worth taking

I've been waiting a long time for the follow-up to MC Yogi's epic debut, Elephant Power. At last, the wait is over and it couldn't have been more worth it. Pilgrimage is serious next level music from the NoCal b-boy yogi. Crisp, warm production and a universe of sonic textures and funky beats that'll have you laughing, crying and ultimately jumpjumpjumping with joy. Get this now.

Sunlight in my life

MC Yogi has done it again. His message and storytelling is an inspiration and he has continued to move the musical bar with a new funky sound. Let this album sink into your being.... it really grows on you and the message of sunlight and breath moves through you.
