More about our project:

Music and dance is inextricably connected to the land and the people who create it. Historically, music and dance from native cultures all over the world have been forcibly suppressed and erased by outsiders. How can it be different moving forward? Can we create a positive exchange where we share our stories through art to help heal rifts and make connections, without losing the authenticity of each art form?

We seek to create space for respectful collaborative exchange through the powerful art of music and dance; transcending geographical boundaries to come together and celebrate the common thread of rhythm and movement that connects us ALL back to our ancient roots. All are welcome!
