Graziano Galati is aka Zendiyogi, an artist who found his voice as a combination of his own spoken word and the musical settings he creates and performs. He has studied spirituality in literature all of his life, and has spent a lifetime teaching literature to teens in high school making it a point to introduce them to Joyce’s Portrait of the Artist. Five years ago at 55, he discovered Yoga through the teachings of Sadie Nardini, and has since developed a personal Ashtanga practice from whence much of his poetry evolves. Poetry and music are a staple of his daily practice for which he has composed settings for the entire two hour sessions. Samples of his work can be viewed on his YouTube channel which currently contains over 120 compositions.
