We've been busy getting ready to release our project, FREE LUNCH on 11.11.11. From running around to meetings, events, scheduling photoshoots, music videos and even a little time for yoga.. CIRCA '95 is getting ready for something epic! Here's a little of what we've been up to so far.....
We had a wonderful meeting with Porfirio Piña, Senior Director of the Latin Division for BMI. He showed us around his new office at 7 World Trade Center. Of course we played him some of our new tracks and in return he gave us some wonderful advice. Especially as independent artists it's important for us to take notes and continue to grow & learn. Thanks Popi and BMI for being so supportive of CIRCA '95.
Patty has recenlty started practicing Bikram Yoga. From completing a 30-day challenge in August (which means going every day for 30 days in a row) and continuing ever since. Bikram Yoga is a system of yoga that Bikram Choudhury synthesized from traditional yoga techniques. Bikram classes are 90 minutes, 26 postures, 2 breathing excercises in a heated room of 105°F. If you haven't tried it, we suggest you do! It's a wonderful experience and the benefits are too many to count. Check out BIKRAM YOGA EAST HARLEM, a wonderful studio on 116th. They have an intro special, for $25.00 you can go unlimited for a week, includes a mat and towel. Just tell 'em Patty Dukes sent ya!
