Mikaya Swabb Bio
Mikaya has an advanced understanding of dj set arrangement for conscious dance events. He uses a spectrum of musical genres to deepen somatic embodiment through movement, breath and presence. Using a large bell curve progression in his sets, the journey begins peacefully, builds momentum and contrast, and then lands softly with resolution and grace.
Mikaya’s mixes inspire the full expression of meditation through movement in ways that widen the scope of one’s self-awareness. Mikaya has shared the stage with David Starfire, The Human Experience, Ean Golden, Nickodemus, [Clever Alias], and DJ Dragonfly to name a few. He has played at Asheville Movement Collective, Dance Church Maui, Ecstatic Dance Salt Lake City, Maui Conscious Dance Collective, Burning Man, Beloved Festival. He’s also an excellent sound healer using the gong, Tibetan singing bowl, Native American flute, N’goni, hand drum, and other sacred sound healing instruments.
