Bana Kuma Oahu

January 1, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - January 5, 2020 @ 8:00 pm HST

$300 – $375

Immerse yourself into 5 Days of Learning Universal Wisdom through the scope of Bana Kuma and applying it to Music, Dance, and Ceremony! Join Master Conductor Chris Berry in Creating, Learning, and Presenting a ‘Prayer-formance’ at Bana Kuma Oahu 2020! This multi-day Master Class with Chris Berry is highly anticipated every year. Song, dance, diverse instrumentation and ancient wisdom are seamlessly woven together as an offering to our ancestors and a celebration of our unique gift as a human to transform etherial thought into tangible reality. The culminating orchestration is a Prayerformance for the community. It is simply an unforgettable experience. No experience necessary, absolute beginners will be accommodated, and all are welcome!

Throughout this experience we will gather as community in ceremonial setting. We will learn rhythms composed by Chris Berry, and experience a taste of the sacred altering possible when we imbue the rhythms with sacred intention. Each participant is asked to bring their own drum. We have a handful of extra djembe, if you would like to reserve one please specify when registering.

January 1-5, 2020, at Full Circle Farm in Waimanalo!
