Spring Dundun Dance Event - April 4
Earth Medicine - Dundun Dance Event
April 4, 2020
As Spring stirs beneath the snow, the Earth of our own body begins to swirl with new creative energy. This event is an opportunity to compost/integrate winter energies and nourish seeds of your blossoming in Spring/Summer! What seeds of intention will you plant in your soul garden?
There was a time on Earth where cultures worldwide drummed, danced and sang for more than just entertainment. Our ancient ancestors knew the power of drum & dance for manifestation, strengthening community bonds & individual wellness, as well as nourishing the Earth and embodying joyful celebration!
Our April Dundun Dance Event is an invitation to nourish your connection to your own body, spirit and the beautiful Earth we live in.
Through the ancient practice of Dundun Dance we can tap into the power of playfulness - a refreshing antidote to rigidity and stuckness! Harmonizing with Gaia's vibrancy, we'll consciously work with drum medicine, witnessing a tangible inner shift in how we feel.
I believe that as we restore ourselves we restore the Earth, and as we restore the Earth we restore ourselves.This is an opportunity for fun, connection and conscious intention setting! We have space for 13 women, register now to save your space!
Will you join us for delicious Spring drumming? You're welcome to bring a friend.
Light refreshments and drum rental included.

Historical Context of Dundun Dance
Kemoko Sano introduced Dundun Dance to the United States over 10 years ago. Through his choreography with internationally performing groups, Les Merveilles De Guinee and Les Ballets Africains. Dundun Dabce became more know in the USA and beyond.
I’ve been blessed to have studied Dundun dance in Guinea, West Africa with M'Bemba Bangoura, and Mr. Kemoko Sano’s son, Seiku Sano, current director of Les Merveilles. For over 4 years I studied and peformed Dundun Dance with Master Drummer, Mohammed Diaby in his company Mandingue Foli Kan Don and Master Dancer Sani Abu in his company Ijo Vudu Dance Co.
My passion and respect for West African drum & dance led me to live in West Africa, so I could eat, sleep and breathe the rhythms. The result was deep healing, dear friendships and activation of my purpose. It is with great respect and honor that I share these ancient drumming dances.
