Living the Xanadu Life with Guest Heidi Hong, Co-Founder of The Xanadu Life and Yoga Instructor and Musical Guests Brother and Sister Singing Sensations and Stars of the Swiss Music-TV Show “Joiz’,” The Zibbz, on The LIFE CHANGES Show.
Heidi’s sense of adventure is infectious; from the adrenaline of free fall skydiving to trekking Machu Pichu to scuba diving and exploring the depths of the ocean, she loves it all. With her BFA in Design and Marketing, she created a virtual communication design firm that specializes in branding, print, web, video, photography, and social media solutions. To create balance in her digital world, she studied Yoga Therapy at Loyola Marymount University where she received her 500-hr Yoga Teacher Certification.
Her wide spectrum of experience brings her to teach at Equnoix Sports Clubs to summer sessions of beach yoga to special needs kids at United Cerebral Palsy. Yoga has been her north star guiding her to live an authentic life truest to what she loves most while inspiring others to live out their passions and purpose. She believes that the development of the complete human being, physically, mentally, and spiritually, leads to happy well-rounded people. With that intention, Heidi co-created the magical island experience known as XANADU, as a platform to share inspiration, health & wellness, and outdoor adventure.
The Zibbz are a sister / brother duo from the Swiss side of the Alps. Their music is electronically infused blues rock with a massive live backbeat and quirky synth-driven production by Stee Zibb. Front woman Coco Zibb can wail with the best of them. Her voice is a mix of Pink and Janis Joplin, providing the perfect mix of pop and raw emotional growl that makes for hit records.
Their love for music developed at an early age, growing up in a household of musicians, watching mom and dad play in rock n’ roll bands.
`I remember Stee used to mess up mom’s drum kits by adding pots and pans or whatever else he could find to put together his dream-kit,` says Coco.
Stee adds, `in the early days when Coco was living and performing in London, I’d call her after school to write songs over the phone; thats how The Zibbz got started!`
The Zibbz set off a buzz in Europe in 2010, starring in their own reality show on Swiss Music-TV, Joiz‘ (5 seasons) and playing the festival circuit. Their debut album “Ready?Go!” hit the national charts at number 14 and they return to Europe every year to play festivals.
Since moving to L.A. The Zibbz have rocked at famous venues all over town including the Viper Room, The Roxy Theatre, No Name and the Sayers Club. Opening at the El Rey for Juliette & the Licks in July 2015 was a recent highlight and garnered rave reviews from local press. Since teaming up with Cisco Adler & The Cell Management, they have crafted a brand new EP and plan to release several music videos in the coming months.
The Zibbz’s music strives to break down walls and lift the masses up beyond old notions of genre, gender, and race. Their combination of style and craft is a perfect shock to an industry in need of a swift kick in the ass.
Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!
A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.
In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.
The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
