Yemanja Arts Festival 2017 - San Francisco
Dance Mission and Brasarte present this unique two-night performing arts festival celebrating the spirit of Yemanjá, the African diety that honors the essential, beautiful and sometimes-dangerous 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, Los Angeles and Brazil, 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.
