Conscious Music with YashAkasha, Treaphort, & Amor

Primordial presence meets purposed creative flow… and it’s fresh to death.

Celebrated ecstatic DJ and producer, Treaphort, and interdimensionally touring MC, YashAkasha, have joined forces with a striking and powerful vocalist named Amor, to form a Renaissance Triad like no other. Together they co-create the ultimate musical fusion for the Current Era. The grooves make you move, the vocals are rich and rootsy, and the lyricism is right on the money. Through the ancient codex of rhythm and rhyme, we gain access to a secret alphabet, a universal language, and a supreme intelligence.

In the past decade, Amor has toured internationally as a professional vocalist and dancer, performing over 200 shows in 23 different countries. In 2012, she performed a Hip Hop song in front of the president of Taiwan — on national television — with 150,000 viewers. Bringing timeless melodies and catchy hooks into the mix, Amor diversifies and punctuates the sound of driving rhyme-schemes with the fluidity of sacred invocations and prophetic proclamations for the changing times.

Treaphort is a well-respected architect of ecstatic sounds, who has been plugged into the international dance circuit for a decade and has been producing and DJ’ing for almost two decades, since the age of 13. Having shared a line-up with many legends, such as Lunar Fire or Liquid Bloom with Amani Friend and Porangui, Treaphort is a professional musician and sound designer and is the founder of Golden Turtle Sound, co-director of Rainbow Lightning, and co-founder of Original Currency.

YashAkasha has been performing poetry on stage and rhyming with a passion since his earliest childhood memories. Soon after his first homemade music video quickly gained thousands of views, his song for Standing Rock was selected as a finalist for a competition by Talib Kweli and Xiuhtezcatl Martinez. He then went on to release his first Medicinal Music album, Rapture (2017), which was well-received, including press coverage in Delumin/a online journal. He is now preparing to open for Matisyahu at HeartFire Festival NY 2019.

Having toured through most of the major transformational festivals of the American continents—such as Arise, Burning Man, Oregon Eclipse, Envision, and HeartFire—OC members have collaborated with many renowned artists—such as Lily Fangz—and have shared the stage with countless big name musicians—including One Tribe & Tubby Love.
