And building on last year’s epic “yoga studio turned nightclub,” De Lory brings her LIVE Donna Trance Dance program to The Studio Maui, Friday, Oct. 1, at 7:30 p.m.
The ethereal pop music star (and Madonna’s backup vocalist) will perform with her long-time collaborators, Cameron Stone on cello and Quinn on drums.
An advocate for conscious living as well as an expressive passionate performer, De Lory blends North African grooves, meditative melodies, love themes, sanskrit mantras and psychedelic arrangements in her music to stir and soothe you into the sensual sublime. With performances co-created “in the moment” with the audience, the lines blur between the performer, the audience and the performance—at times creating an “all becoming one” experience.
Donna De Lory will make her Maui Arts & Cultural Center debut on Thursday, Sept. 30, at 7:30 p.m. in the McCoy Studio Theater and brings her LIVE Donna Trance Dance program to The Studio Maui, Friday, Oct. 1, at 7:30 p.m.
Fans are familiar with De Lory from her years of touring with Madonna, but her music has its own compelling vision, experienced best live and found in popular releases over the last decade.
In her Sanctuary release, De Lory has crafted an expressive, spiritually charged album that embraces both her passionate exploration of yoga and meditation inspired music. A devoted student of yoga and spiritual teachings, she is inspired not only by Western pop, but by Indian devotional music, Sanskrit mantras, Northern African grooves, psychedelic arrangements and dance beats. The Los Angeles-based singer enjoys making what she calls “meditative music” that can smartly and sensuously lend itself to dance-friendly re-mixes, and can heal through both contemplation and celebration.
