Yemanja Arts Festival
Sunday, February 2, 2020
Doors 6pm ~ Show 7pm
BrasArte presents this unique two-night performing arts festival celebrating the spirit of Yemanjá, the African deity that honors the essential nature of water. Inspired by the original Yemanjá Festival celebrated in Bahia, Brazil, the Yemanjá Arts Festival will bring together celebrated artists and dancers from across the Bay Area and Los Angeles, interpreters of traditional and modern art forms from the African diaspora (Brazil, the Caribbean, and the United States) that pay homage to Yemanjá/Iemanjá/Yemoja/Yemayá through their respective folkloric and spiritual traditions.
