Vishuddha Blue is a custom made Sound System operated by Yahru El Guru, which delivers up to 10,000 watts of sound. This system was designed to deliver clear sound when frequencies are played that open up the throat chakra.
Through vibration and movement, Vishuddha Blue Sound System aims to promote consciousness and awareness, in an atmosphere where we can gather, meditate, reason, heal, stretch, and dance. We feel we will achieve just that through Sound Healing, Meditation, The Art of Movement, Self Expression, and Closing Vibrations.
Also known as Vibrational Medicine is a practice that employs vibrations from many different instruments and voices. Such as Singing bowls, Gongs, and chanting.
The opening session begins with Vishuddha Blue playing through its 10,000 watts of sound (depending on the location) many different frequencies, chants, and healing instruments that resonates and opens up The Throat Chakra. During this session, participants are encouraged to bring their instruments to chime in on the vibrational healing.
Instructed by Siriana Tantrika
Siriana Tantrika started her journey in college where she studied Sociology and Anthropology. She began the process of self-exploration after a series of experiments with different traditions starting from Wicca, Agnosticism, Christianity, and Buddhism.
In 2006, Siriana found herself needing to heal after ending a tumultuous relationship. It was then she found Rastafari after meeting a reggae and Rastafari veteran Judah Eskender Tafari who poured lots of information about Ethiopia. The journey had only begun. She went on to research more about Rastafari and Ethiopia and found the similarities the previous holds with India and Hinduism. During this time she would find herself immersed in the Tantrik path and philosophy. It was then that the Tantrika was born.
Siriana has 13 years of experience in the Tantrik arts including touch, sound, meditation, sex and fertility counseling. She incorporates sound and color in the meditation practice using solfeggio tones for the healing of traumas and the alignment of our chakras.
Join Siriana T in a self-exploration journey to heal yourself from the core! Namaste!

Shiba started DJ’ing in 1997 with a couple of belt-driven turntables and a handful of house and trance records and when dubstep came along in the mid-2000’s he knew he had found a sound that he loved. He has performed across Colorado and a few other spots in the USA. In 2013 he went to Croatia to play at the legendary Outlook Festival. He grew up in the San Luis Valley of Colorado living in both Monte Vista and Center which helped him develop a diverse taste in music genres and influences which he uses to dig deep and discover artists and tunes that fly low under the radar of the general dubstep landscape and you can expect to hear music during his sets that nobody else can bring to the dance”.
