Biography

The 3 members of 'To Life!' share a love for tribal, shamanic trance music, and the hypnotic dance rhythms from around the world.

Influenced by the music of North and West Africa, the Middle East, the nomads and gypsies, as well as the rock, funk and dance music of the West, 'To Life!' have created a fusion that is both fresh and familiar. One observer describes the music of 'To Life!' as "...new music from our cellular memory.." Audiences become exuberant, inspired, and positively funky....

Each of the members of 'To Life!' brings a unique charisma to the experience:

APOLLO, (Lead, Rhythm, and Bass Guitars, Vocals, Oud, Saz) has toured and recorded extensively with many artists, and is a grammy-nominated, platinum-selling producer in his own right. Apollo blends his wide exposure of musical influences into a dynamic performance in 'To Life!'

OSHER, (Didjeridoos, Vocals, Percussion) has collaborated as a performer, recording artist, and instructor with artists including Zap Mama, Jai Uttal, Cirque de Soleil and Lost at Last. Raised in the desert of the Middle East, she brings with her a deep desert nomadic presence.

LO, (Djun Djuns, Vocals, Percussion) has travelled , studied, and collaborated with indiginous cultures of Africa, the Phillipines, Cuba, etc., and provides the driving, relentless rhythms that give 'To Life!' its primal, shamanic backbone.

A celebration of life...To Life!!!
