Nicolas Giacommi, known most commonly as MC YOGI has an inspiring life story worth sharing, from living in a group home for at-risk youth to becoming a renowned yoga teacher and musical innovator, MC YOGI is on a mission to bring good music and good energy into the world. Having grown up immersed in hip hop culture before finding yoga in his teens, he naturally began to integrate the two, setting yogic wisdom to hip hop beats. The result was a compelling new sound and series of successful albums. His first three records were all #1 on iTunes World Music and his latest, Ritual Mystical, was #1 on Electronic Music. He has since toured the world many times over headlining at every major yoga festival. In 2017 HarperOne published his memoir, Spiritual Graffiti, which won a silver Nautilus award for best memoir. When MC YOGI is not on tour, he lives with his wife Amanda and teaches at their studio, Point Reyes Yoga, in Northern California. For more about MC YOGI visit mcyogi.com

Now 10,000+ later, 10,000 Buddhas has become a worldwide, highly sought after art project, including large scale murals, fine art paintings, works on paper, and apparel.
