"The Thought of Eternal Life"
Yuma's music and dance is a combination of not only East and Western culture, but more of a gathering of Universal expressions.

In these pieces, Yuma presents the concepts of nature and the elements as personal gifts that are given freely by God for us to pass along without the clutter of the ego.
