Get your groove on at a pre-Valentine Conscious Dance at Alameda's hippest new venue, Rhythmix Cultural Works. Come early for a body and soul warm-up with Alisha Blau, then Dance, Dance, Dance to the trance-enhanced mixes of DJ Rhythmystic. Members of the dynamic taiko ensemble Maze Daiko, will blend live drumming into the mix. This magical harmonic journey will build through a masterful blend of global beats, tempos, textures and expansive dance energy.
The beautiful dance-friendly environment at Rhythmix is well suited for this universal blend of musical vibes and rhythmic soundscapes. Blau will lead a mind/body/soul movement experience that combines stretching, breathwork, meditation, free form dance and body symbology from 7:30 8:00 pm. DJ Rhythmystic follows from 8 to 11 pm with a full range of connected sounds; from luminous pearls to silly putty bass equations to pure soul music from the land of joy to unrepentant straight up 'n get down dirty ill-funk. Add in the pure and deadly swinging high hats of deep jackin' house to smacked up and peaked out breakbeat to the tribal catharsis and all the way back down the ladder to a puddle on the floor. Maze Daiko members Janet Koike and Tina Blaine (Bean) will team up with DJ Rhythmystic to add bursts of live beats and global percussion to the evening's sonic spice.
For art lovers, RCW will also be hosting an opening reception from 6 - 9 pm for its latest show in the K Gallery in conjunction with the Estuary Art Attack, Seeing Red; explorations on the other side of Love. Local healers in the chill space will offer chair massage and alternative forms of bodywork.
