Join master percussionist, musician, and healer PORANGUÍ as we create a circle of rhythm, sound, and movement! Rediscover the first and most complex instrument known to humankind: your self. Together we will explore where body percussion, voice, and Spirit meet in a polyrhythmic dance. By connecting with our body’s innate pulse and cultivating that expression in a safe & celebratory container, we unfold ourselves to emBody Dance, Sing our Soul and Play our Mind. No experience necessary…this is for ALL! Come and experience the playful and fun VIBE created by a circle of people grooving to collective rhythm!
Reared among the three cultures of Brazil, Mexico, and the U.S., Poranguí was steeped in various traditional forms of music, healing and ceremony since birth. Drawing from his cross-cultural background and ethnomusicology training at Duke University, Poranguí has over twenty years of international work experience as an artist, musician, educator, filmmaker, consultant, and therapist, utilizing the healing properties of sound and movement to foster our individual and collective well being.
