ABOUT THE EVENT

TICKETS

The performance is based on the origins of jazz, which in its time was called the devil's music and dance, and not least for "black noise". Traditional rhythms and melodies from jazz's African roots are explored in a symbiotic interplay between dance and music.

All music is originally written for the performance and is inspired by jazz, soul, spirituals as well as African polyrhythmic traditions. The dancers and musicians play in the soul of jazz and uncover gripping stories of survival and dignity in the face of inhumane situations such as slavery, segregation, apartheid, and modern racism.

Welcome to an Afro-Caribbean dance experience for the entire sensory apparatus!
