African Goddesses Dance Series, from Jan. 19 2019 @ Bric a Brac Gallery – Karen

African traditions from the West to East and the diaspora have female deities who embody unique traits. These deities or goddesses represent various aspects and possibilities of feminine being, and of nature.

In this 15 week dance series we will explore the traits represented by African goddesses and reflect on how we embody these ourselves. Through dance, song, reflective practices and improvisation we will come to know and more fully inhabit our own divine feminine.

Venue: Bric a Brac gallery, Karen
Full series cost: 12,000.

Showcase Wednesday featuring D’Bass Ganun (Qanun Player from Tanzania), Jan. 23 2019 @ Alliance Française de Nairobi

Date: January 23, 2019
Venue: Alliance Française de Nairobi
Time: 7 pm
Entry: Free

The 1st Showcase Wed. of the year will feature the qanun player D’Bass Ganun from Tanzania, incorporating this ancient Egyptian string instrument into the vibrant traditional music of the Ndengeleko from Rufiji.

Mbwana Mtulia, also known as D’bass Ganun, is a talented Tanzanian singer, songwriter, bassist and Qanun (Ganun) player. The Ganun is a 10th Century ancient Egyptian string instrument.

D’bass picked up an interest in the instrument from his late father, a Qanun maestro, who tutored him. D’bass’s Ndengeleko tribe (from the island town of Rufiji) incorporated the instrument into their vibrant traditional music to create a unique contemporary sound that delivers a memorable listening experience.
