Kemp’s Nameless Energy track, Jai Ram, was experienced and then recently tweeted by Deepak Chopra, who inspired his followers to “Explore the power of mantra by listening to “Jai Ram” ft. Tara Devi on the #NamelessEnergy album by @DTOmusicpage.

“There is nothing more awakening than having live music during yoga and working with DTO is a mystical treat,” says Hemalayaa. “DTO’s music inspires a deep connection to self as well as connection with community,” she adds.

“Infusing high-vibrational music into your life creates inspiration and a deep spiritual connection,” says Kemp, who resides in San Diego and teaches Spanish at technology magnet Bonsall High School. DTO is also a four-time award-winning music producer. In 2015, DTO and Andrea Sáenz received an award of merit for their Dolce Ardor: An Opera Music Video.

While performing music live during a yoga class, DTO says he brings his many years as a musician, teacher and yoga instructor plus his acoustic guitar, a full 88-key digital keyboard and his own sophisticated sound system. “My first experience in a yoga-plus-live music experience was so profound that it awakened me to my life’s purpose and I want this blissful feeling for everyone,” says DTO, who wears his guitar on his back on a custom-made, over-the-shoulder hemp strap emblazoned with DTO on one side.

For Nameless Energy’s 15 soul-lifting tracks, Kemp also collaborated with some of San Diego’s brightest “conscious music” stars such as Buddha Music Group’s Kiyoshi as well as Krista Richards, Aja Lee, Tara Devi, Jamie Shadowlight, Christy Rose and Zoe Sol.

What’s next for DTO? Kemp will perform May 27-28 at Nevada’s Lightning in a Bottle as well as headline Emerge Canada Yoga Festival’s “market stage” (June 30 at noon) and team up again with Hemalayaa for two events: Hemalayaa + DTO: Go Love Yourself!
