      Music As Medicine presents Kumbha

      Music As Medicine invites you to Kumbha. A night of DANCE, MOVEMENT, COMMUNITY, CELEBRATION & RELEASE. LIVE IMPROVISED MUSIC from The Order Of Love trio with AFRO, FUNK, DUB & PSYCHEDELIC flavours. FEATURING special guest; Anton Hunter (Beats n Pieces Big Band, Article XI, Caulbearers). ********************************************************* THIS IS FOR.... ....the dancers, the ravers, rebels & change-makers, ecstatic shakers, dreamers & seekers, contact improvisers, 5 Rhythm lovers, medicine movers, travellers, music worshippers, yogis and hippies, the lost, the found & the inbetween… This is an invitation to express through movement; a space with the freedom to let loose, where the body and the music lead the way. Dancers respond to the music, musicians to the dancers; a co - creation happening in the present moment where we share the journey but with the freedom to be ourselves. All is welcome, come as you are. MUSIC AS MEDICINE - OUR VISION Music As Medicine events celebrate the transformational power of music to heal, bringing us all together as one beating heart and bring us back to our authentic selves. "Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul.” - Plato THE SYMBOL OF KUMBHA In the context of Hindu, Jain and Buddhist mythology, the kumbha symbolises the womb. It represents fertility, life, sustenance & the generative power of human beings. The Kumbha is a water jug, a vessel associated with the zodiacal sign of Aquarius and is world renowned due to the Hindu festival, Kumbha Mela, the largest peaceful gathering in the world. Our intention for this night is to create a container; a held space for connection and community through music and dance at Niamos - the heart of the community in Hulme, Manchester. KUMBHA LINE UP This session will be guest-facilitated by Shelly Skye, a circus performer, Ecstatic Dance practitioner and Yoga teacher. Shelly will guide us into an ever evolving and shifting flow with musicians Damien Mahoney, Gavin Mullan & Nic Malin playing an improvised set of soundscapes on a global selection of instruments & percussion. 'The Order of Love' are a multi-instrumental three-piece. Their work focuses on intuitive, improvised sound journeying, rhythm, movement medicine, trance & tribal dance, mantra and medicine songs with an emphasis on heart-wisdom, healing and connection. *********************************************************** FOR THE LOVE OF CHOCOLATE Ceremonial Grade Cacao will be on offer before we begin and soup available to ground us after the dance. TICKETS £12 General £15 ON THE DOOR
