Chris Molinari (M.Ed. Clinical Mental Health Counseling 2017, B.M. Music Performance 2014) is a guitarist, composer, yoga instructor.
His latest music release, Electric Yoga Class uses the electric guitar as the primary instrument in forming ambient and post-rock soundscapes. It is regularly used by yoga instructors for their classes and has an international listenership. His upcoming release, Ramayana EP, is a cinematic dark ambient aural collage depicting scenes from one of the world's oldest and longest epic poems, the Ramayana.
