Actually, the official title is "Dance for the Sun: 2015 Remix," but you get the idea. Nearly ten years ago, when I released my first album, Dance for the Sun: Yoga Songs for Kids, I had no idea how much the title song would be used by kids' yoga teachers far and wide as a fun, musical way to teach sun salutations. I love going to an event like the National Kids' Yoga Conference, asking how many teachers use this song, and seeing tons of hands go up!
The original version was created back when I was self-producing my songs (um, not the greatest idea). I've since found an incredible team of musicians and an amazing producer, Zak Rizvi, and he and I teamed up to re-record this oldie but goodie. He created an all-new bed for the song, adding some piano and new guitar parts, and I sang a new vocal.
We kept some of the original percussion--that's my super-talented cousin, Beau Lisy, on djembe--and some of the original kids' voices (my daughter and her friends, who were four and five at the time! see pic). Fast forward, and now her two younger brothers have joined the crew as backup singers on the new version.
And just for kicks--here's the video from just after the first release, way back in the day...
