Currently, Yogi is writing and recording with Croatian hip hop star Edo Maajka, Chinese pop stars Jeff Chang and Jason Zhang, The Dead Daisies and playing his own quartet shows around the globe. He is continuously writing and producing tracks worldwide as well.
Yogi does not only share his music with us, by writing and producing his own work, but he shares a pathos, a new future and a vision of sincerity for modern rock that belies any doubt of his genius.
