Event description
This promises to be an ​intense evening ​full of music, ​​j​oy and ​healing​. Come and experience the magic of Afro Ecstatic Spirit Dance…

About this event

This is an Afro Ecstatic Spirit Dance organised by Melanin Health & Wellness in order to raise much needed funds for their child food poverty project, Melanin Lunch Box.

Each ticket bought will provide 8 culturally appropriate nutritional meals for children from the BME community. This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to serve and support the community, and this is what you will be a part of!

30 drums will call our ancestors to come dance with our spirit, sending powerful healing energies across time and space, healing both them and us.

At the start of the evening each drum will be given a name of a West African Tribe and will represent their voice as they are played. During the welcoming ceremony libation will be poured to welcome and honour their presence.

The Afro House DJ will help you warm up before you fly, allowing you to explore the exhilarating feeling of moving your body totally freely.

There will be a drumming workshop where you will be taught to play within a tribal village drum circle whilst learning some of the traditional West African call and response rhythms. Within a short time you will be creating a crescendo of amazing sound with the beautiful power of the drum. It will charge your body and move you!

You are invited to be and connect with your ancestors whilst you explore and release your power spirit dance through movement. Feel the earth and set free the tribal dancer you are, surf the vibes and beats from the first people of the continent, Africa!

Find your spirit, be your spirit, free your spirit…
