“I have seen things in this life that I am incapable of translating into words. In my practice I have visited realms where the imagination ends, and the terrifying beauty of infinity unfolds over and over again.

For nearly 20-years hosts Heklina & Peaches Christ have curated some of San Francisco’s most notorious drag acts, loaded them on to a bus, and staged a full scale invasion of Reno on Easter weekend. Formerly known as “TrannyShack” these performances have wowed audiences around the globe, from the heart of San Francisco to the stages of Los Angeles, New York, London, and beyond.
The emergence of Kaminanda’s organic skill has landed him on the crest of spiritually conscious music. His debut release “Syntropic Luminosity” in 2008 introduced the world to his signature style of world sounds marked by glitch modulation, producing a highly psychedelic audio experience which has continued to evolve throughout Kaminanda’s six studio albums.
Kaminanda’s self proclaimed mission statement is “to produce and perform music that uplifts the spirit of the listener.” He has described his style with labels like tribal elfstep, trip hop, spacefunk and gypsy step, stating that his sound is designed “to take the listener on a journey reflecting the evolution of our collective consciousness.”
Having sprouted from the musically conscious region of Vancouver, Canada, his gypsy sound has hit music festivals such as Shambhala, Symbiosis, Lightning In a Bottle and Burning Man, and is internationally known at festivals like Envision, Boom and Eclipse Australia. He entwines the barrier of live and electronic perfectly, dark and light, future and ancient, constantly moving dancers back and forth through the tipping point at the center of his eclectic style.
In addition to continuing collaborations with artists like Ganga Giri, Rara Avis and Adham Shaikh, Kaminanda has worked both in the studio and on live sets with the WASSABI COLLECTIVE (2001-2004) and performed alongside artists such as Eoto, Desert Dwellers, Tipper, Ott and Bird of Prey.
Kaminanda is performing live in Reno on Thurs, February 11, 2016.
