After his family being affected by the 2011 tsunami in Japan, Dana created TEKTONIK, the multi-discipline art platform as a storytelling vehicle to remediate negative impact on people and geographies affected by disaster.
During the fireside chat, Dana shared his insights on health optimisation through music, and how leading organisations such as Google, Alibaba, Davos etc are employing music meditation for the benefits of their staff and stakeholders.
