"The music is a reflection of the commonalities between cultures, and the vast richness of our planetary heritage", says founder Fabian Alsultany. "Our work is not only to get the dance floor moving, but to also stimulate a deep sense of planetary unity through music and dance."Their parties have become legendary in the breadth of music and ease of transition they make between country, culture and continent. The DJ collective consists of Fabian Alsultany, Bill Bragin (Director of Outdoor Programming at Lincoln Center) and author/yoga instructor Derek Beres. The trio has taken their musical aesthetic to clubs, festivals and special events internationally in locations such as Singapore, Israel, Egypt, Lebanon, Brazil, France, England and Mexico.
