Welcome to Dharmakaya! You are now entering an alternate universe that combines Chill-Out, Psy Chill and Trip-Hop music with a developing visual show, twirling around stunning magical effects and the delicate movements of dance.
I, Cristiano Torres aka Ayash Beats, was born in Porto (Portugal) in 1981. Since that I can remember that I have always been interested in music and in the early age of 13 years old, in 1994, I began to play drums in a Heavy Metal band with some friends. At the same time I enrolled in a Fire Department Band playing also drums.
I was already a musician and composer when in 1999 I started to sing and produce Rap Music under the name of Ayuaska Ayash aka Ayash Beats in the PDA Band with Psydin, Wize Demon, Benito Gunz and Dj V3 aka Subsense. After 8 years past and a lot of really hard work in studio, I and Psydin finally finished the album «PDA Genuíno» that was released, in 2007, by the label Gangbang Records which was created by me and B.G. Beats in the same year. It was in 2009 that I opened my own studio and started to work with a wide range of artists – Carolina Deslandes, Primero G, Psydin Atomico, Mc LouAndre, Bruno Cruz, Ruca, Joana Apleton, Noias, Arley Stone, Xangai, Dyggas Machinegun, Machinegun Rebels, Unidade 2.10, BroadG, D-Tox, Mystical, Humano Sereno aka Dj v3, Yakronic, MDP Wariorz, Souljahs RDM, Costa (Dem Boys Click), B-Leza, Subsense, Paulino (Ferro Gaita), Nuno Clam aka Malcoman and many others, producing, mixing and mastering tracks within different genres but mostly Hip-Hop. During the same year I also began to produce Chill-Out, Trip-Hop and Electronic music giving birth to the project Dharmakaya [Chill-Out / Psychill / Trip-Hop] & Dharmasense [Progressive Trance] along with Subsense. In January 2010 I released my first album as Dharmakaya – «The beginning of the Experiencies» and in December of the same year Dharmakaya released the second one - «Rolling Experiencies». During the current year (2011) Dharmakaya has worked with Silvia Janeiro (Bellydancer) & Tiago Santos (vj).
Dharmakaya now is preparing to lunch a new album in 2012.
