The future is here and that future is divine. It’s time. Realign. Reconnect with the feminine. Come, enter the shrine of the power-intelligent feminine future. Featuring spoken word artist and storyteller DJ Sista Zai Zanda (VIC) in collaboration with Selina Thompson, Black Birds and Roberta Rich, SANKOFA presents an Afro-futuristic Mother’s Day eve celebration of ancestry, storytelling and the divine feminine.
Get ready to dance, rapturously. To groove and shake what your mama gave you in complete surrender to the love vibration. Bear witness to the music and poetry that honours the feminine, ancestry and lineage as you embark on the four hour journey. Immerse yourself in SANKOFA, the ultimate Afro-futuristic experience; gliding on a sea of hypnotic, pulsating, and melodic sound waves interspersed with poetry, story and roots music.
