Carlebach 14 - Carlebach 14, Tel Aviv,
A dance workshop in tribute to the super-early African punk king Fela Olopella Kuti, inventor and creator of African punk of the 70’s of the last century – the Afrobite!
African music and dance come together!
The Nigerian Fela, a member of the Yoruba tribe, incorporated in his music punk jazz with nuances and elements from the traditional music of the Gold Coast tribes, including the Yoruba and Ivo, the Afrobit (not the present one). Accordingly, a new style developed in dance – an African traditional dance that adapts to the new musical genre.
The workshop will take about two and a half hours and as always – accompanied by live music!
