Global superstar Yanni s new album, Sensuous Chill, is inspired by a myriad of international sounds and flavors with a groundbreaking new sonic approach. The album once again sees the visionary musician exploring new realms of sound and creativity inspired by his seeming infinite world travels. Tracks like the ecstatically rhythmic "Desert Soul" and the bhangra-spiced "Dance For Me" are among the most physically stimulating of the Grammy Award®-nominated composer s remarkable canon, offering a new sonic perspective on his adventures and experiences amidst myriad aspects of global culture.
Yanni, accompanied by a fifteen-member international orchestra, will celebrate Sensuous Chill with a major U.S. tour starting in early February. The tour will see Yanni performing classic compositions from throughout his career alongside music from the new album, favorites and special surprises.
For their pledge period in March, PBS will air a new Yanni special filmed at his recent history making concerts at the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. The concert will be aired as a rare "Common Carriage" show which means the premiere will be aired on all PBS stations nationwide on March 5 with repeats continuing throughout the month.
Yanni is truly a global artist - a multiple Grammy Award®-nominated composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and performer whose extraordinary body of work has both pioneered contemporary instrumental music and re-imagined the live concert-going experience. Since making his solo debut with 1984s Optimystique, Yanni has seen no less than fifteen albums reach #1 on the Billboard s Top New Age Album Chart, more than any other artist ever, and has amassed over 35 platinum and gold records throughout his career.
