Musician Bios:

Miles Bonny - Miles is the product of a family focused on human support and music. Born to a Trumpet playing father and guitar playing mother in NYC, Miles’ family culture was the byproduct of his strong family roots. These roots most include a paternal grandmother who was a pioneering Music Therapist and maternal grandmother who championed Women and cross-cultural dialogue. With two Minister Grandfathers added to the mix, this New York City-born New Jersey-bred young boy has traveled the globe as he trusts his gut with a faith in the eternal good of life. As a trumpeter, vocalist, producer, dj and community empowerment worker his explorations in social issues and world cultures has taken him on numerous tours in Europe, invited him into collaborations addressing drug abuse with artists in Russia and fatherhood in Italy, random excursions including time in Sweden with Diplo, and Australia with Osunlade and Ta-Ku. Whether rubbing shoulders as child with Tito Puente, Max Roach, Carmine Caruso, Vic Damone, and Michael Brecker or as a collaborator with many in the international DJ, Vinyl, Beat, and Soul scenes as an adult, Miles has stayed in the fold of not only music but culture.

A fan of community work and social good, Miles spends his non-music time educating housing unstable teenagers on independent living skills, toddlers on DJing, law enforcement on harm-reduction, and recovering opioid users on creativity and self confidence. His creations are a warm blanket that hugs you while exploring life’s bed of nails. Social Awareness filters through his mouth, microphones and computers to represent itself as creations that are experienced by soulful people around the world. Rather than fear the negative aspects of the world, Miles dives into them as he seeks possible answers to our collective social issues. Connect with Miles and welcome the future as your friend. He is ready. He’s been ready.

Vic Hennegan - Vic Hennegan has been writing, recording, producing and performing electronic music for several years. As a live performer he has performed at such shows as The Gathering Concert Series in Philadelphia, Cyberstock of Los Angeles, Ecstatic Dance, 5 Rhythms Dance, Soul Motion, Northern California Dance Collective and many other venues around the world. With computers, samplers, vocals and synthesizers, Hennegan’s instinctive hand creates techno- trance and ambient music in a wildly fun, uplifting spiritual experience that will take your soul on a journey to the center of ecstasy.
"A unique warmth emanates from Hennegan's music moving the listener to a state of euphoria. Through complex and insistent rhythms and vocals, Hennegan accomplishes a lush dynamic that relentlessly strives to entertain.” (Matt Howarth, Sonic Curiousity.com)

Hennegan’s music is complimented by the guest artists he works with such as Surface Ten’s synthesist extraordinaire, Dean De Benedictis; and Becca Fuchs, whose incredible vocal range spans from operatic to soulful and sexy. His music is streamed on radio shows such as Pandora, Spotify, Alien Air Music, Star's End, Echoes, Apple Music, Hearts of Space and much much more!

Hennegan’s compositions are featured on three different "Echoes" compilations: “Soundscape for Echoes” on the release “Refractions: The Echoes Living Room Concerts, Volume 12,” with internationally renowned electronic musicians Andreas Vollenweider and Michael Brook; and Echoes Location, The Echoes Living Room Concerts, Volume 17, featuring a live version of his most popular itunes download, "Patagonian Rain." And the 2014 release, Transmissions: Echoes Living Room Concerts V19, featuring the song "Desert Vortex." The host of "Echoes," John Diliberto, personally invited Vic Hennegan to participate in all of the Echoes compilations and has placed Hennegan's 2011 release "Field of Worlds and Mirrors," as one of the top 25 albums of the year.

Vic Hennegan is excited to be working with his top favorite synthesizer companies: U-he, Tal- Tugo Audio, Rob Papen, Synapse Audio, AudioRealism and Novation.

Hennegan’s music may be found on Pandora, Spotify, itunes, CDBaby, Rhapsody.com, Apple Music, Yahoo.com, Amazon.com, and MusicZiet.com.

Hennegan is a practicing Buddhist. This faith aims to manifest enlightenment in the lives of its practitioners. By tapping into an individual's creative potential, one can create a thriving and peaceful community. Through his faith and his music, Hennegan invokes the timeless tradition of music’s healing powers. He believes that, “We are the creators of our own universe. I seek to help people understand this very fact through my music.”

Mieshiel was born in New York City. He attended Friends Seminary & received his BFA in 1986 from California Institute of the Arts. Upon graduations, Mieshiel moved into a 19th century Masonic Temple in Los Angeles where he co-founded Temple Art Performance, a hub for avante-garde performance art, music & visual art. He later moved to New Mexico & spent the next 24 years in near seclusion, living off the grid. In this high desert sanctuary timelessness & utter quiet allowed him to experience an endless barage of mystical experiences where his art connection with Pablo Amaringo was revealed. In 1982 Mieshiel won competition & created a street mural at Irving Place in NYC. His work has been exhibited nationally & is included in the permanent collections of the Harwood Museum of Art in Taos.

Musical Talent:

Esmé Olivia is a performing & teaching artist grateful to have grown up in occupied Tiwa Pueblo lands known as Albuquerque, NM to a Mestiza Mexican-American mother & Dutch father.

MYSTICKA (Boulder, CO)

In 2003 she went to her first Psytrance party and got infected. She has been an electronic music aficionado ever since She started djaying in 2012 playing Progressive Psytrance and Downtempo. Her sound is funky deep bass lines, emotional melodies, healing sounds, and chakra aligning arrangements. Her latest projects include producing underground electronic music events in and around Denver: Psychedelic Szechuan, 7th Dimension and Liminal Vibe. She is part of Rising Phoenix Colorado, Defy Labels, Native Circuit and Rocky Mountain Resonance. https://soundcloud.com/mystickahttps://www.facebook.com/Rising-Phoenix-Colorado-1089772607726477/


SATTVA ANANDA (Santa Fe, NM)
Sattva Ananda got his first musical instrument at the age of thirteen (a drum kit). From there he learned to play percussion instruments of various types, including the didgeridoo, congas, djembe, nyabinghi drums etc. In the early 90,s he played in funk and groove oriented bands. In 1996 he started the venture towards loop based music, eventually leading to his owning a small studio and the self production abyss of electronic based music. Today he focuses on what is broadly known as bass music. Sattva has been producing bass music for many years, with numerous releases on Party Time Society and Desert Trax. He is best known for his Moombahton sets that always bring a smile to those on the dancefloor. We're honored to have him up to Taos for a guest appearance.

INFINITE SPLIT
From experamental whimsical dream worlds, to melodic sexy trap habbits. Infinite Split stays on the forefront of strange, bringing a unique blend of psychosis and philosophy in a form of sound. Science still has yet to classify this paradox as a dissociative, so is legal dew to massive black outs and common brain damage. Burrowed in the New Mexican landscape, Infinite Split remains, a wanderlust of soundscapes
