Earth Medicine - Dundun Dance Event
December 8, 2019
As we approach solstice, it's a beautiful time to take stock. What are you proud of? What pattern or habit could use loosening through drum & dance medicine? What intentions would you like to anchor through the power of communal drumming?
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 December 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 align with our soul power and center in our Truth, drawing strength to carry forward into the darkness of winter. Through harmonizing with Gaia's vibrancy, we'll consciously work with drum medicine, witnessing a tangible inner shift in how we feel. This is an opportunity for self-care and reflection before the fullness of the holidays...
I believe that as we restore ourselves we restore the Earth, and as we restore the Earth we restore ourselves. There is space for 10 women, register now to save your space!
We have the possibility of making an impact in this world, through nourishing ourselves and supporting others.

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.
