Jose has spent over 25 years as a world music pioneer and with his Indigenous tribe from Australia, Descendance Aboriginal Dance Theatre, where he learned to use music as medicine, and to sing into people’s bones and touch the intimate recesses of their soul. As a music composer, Jose offers a rich diversity of styles, covering Contemporary, Traditional, Classical, World, Folk, Pop, Rap, Ambient and Dance. Jose includes all these styles into Forrest Yoga. As a Musical Shaman he skillfully creates “Dreamtime” soundscapes, which lure the students underneath their mental clutter and allows them to delve deeply on an internal vision quest, where they can begin to observe themselves from lofty heights of their own spirit.

Many of Jose’s original compositions were penned from his journeys into the Dreamtime.
