Mino Yanci is a 4 piece jazz fusion band based out of Sacramento, CA. The meaning of Mino Yanci is "Musical Freedom" and you can hear this freedom come up in the music the moment you hear the first note.
SoL DeVeloPMeNT -- a hip hop/jazz/soul ensemble based out of Oakland, California -- is the soundtrack to the movement for justice, freedom, and hope. As both educators and artists, Sol Development uses the power of music to help convey positive messages about improving self and improving society.

— NEIL DORFSMAN (STING, BJÖRK, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN)
What's in it for you: as a doubleOone member, you will attend a 4 hour recording session in a state of the art studio, and share this unique moment with a band as they record a track, and work together to reach excellence.
You will be in the recording room with the musicians as they play. You will find that studios are sanctuaries, places where time flows at its own natural pace, and where true inspiration is captured in sound and music.
If you are a musician yourself, we might even have a surprise for you. The recording is followed by a cultural chat and a Q&A session, addressing creativity, emotional labor, art and life choices, communication, practice, inspiration, achievements and the road to one's true calling, ambition and mastery.
*Our recording sessions standards: you will attend the recording session with a small doubleOone group (only 20-25 spots available/recording), and engage in creating genuine music. Catering and wine will be served.
