Desert Dwellers consists of Amani Friend and Treavor Moontribe, who began their careers as independent music producers and DJs in the deserts of New Mexico and California. Coming together in the late '90s after connecting through the legendary Moontribe scene, today the duo enjoys a reputation as one of the most pioneering and prolific downtempo, psy-bass, and tribal trance acts in the United States. Desert Dwellers have toured extensively across six continents, spent a 7-week stretch on the road with renowned psychedelic artist Shpongle, and have performed at dozens of festivals, most notably Shambhala, Lightning in a Bottle, Envision, Coachella, Rainbow Serpent, and Boom. Taking a new approach to digital production, Amani and Treavor have combined the raw sounds of the natural world while skillfully blended deep bass, earthy percussion, etheric voices and cross-cultural instrumentation into sonic incense for the mind and body. Bringing the electronic music vibe to the yoga scene, and the sounds of yoga to the electronic dance scene, Desert Dwellers’ global sounds are the bridge between the worlds of dance and movement.With the Desert Dwellers Live show, Desert Dwellers join forces with incredible aerialists, acrobats, fire performers and musicians like powerful vocalist Meagan Chandler ( meaganchandler.com) and violinist HÄANA (thisishaana.com). Additional performers and instrumentalists join the Desert Dwellers Live show along the way as it brings the duo's catalog to life with thrilling performances, wild re-interpretations, and breathtaking choreography.

So fucking sick. I went completely sober, and they opened for shpongle it was so artistic and weird. I loved it. I just hate how they also turn the volume lower for the openers than for the headliners just because Desert Dwellers are one of my favorite psy trance artists
