MOJÙGBÁ: Giving Homage to The Ancestral Spirits of Music & Dance
Mojùgbá: A Yoruba prayer recited to give homage to the Egùn (Ancestor) or an Òrísá (Deity of Nature).
I like to invite you to, a place... A special place, an oasis, where like minded spirits can come together in love, tenderness, and devotion. Where we can love ourselves, and love one another, and it's okay to be who you are, completely free from the social restrictions of the outside world.
"If we can dance together, then we can live together"
"Love Will Save The Day"
Inspired by David Mancuso THE LOFT, the legendary party Body & SOUL NYC, and the Yoruba African Cuban spiritual path, MOJÙGBÁ, began Friday, February 15, 2013, at bushbaby, a small 800 square foot vegan restaurant bar & grill, in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. Every month, artistic, bohemian, gypsy, holistic, eclectic, soulful, creative beings of high vibrations came together giving homage through nourishment, libation, music, dance on the foundation of ancestral spirituality. those who attended and participated were treated more as guest in your home as opposed to customers. For the vibe was more of community, tribe, family. An eclectic blend of danceable music, ranging from the familiar to the obscure. Feeling like a welcoming, warm hug, the music tells a story taking you on a journey, of your mind, your body, and you spirit.
Now every month, we the creatives come together, to love, live, laugh, dance, release, and heal, in total freedom giving homage, through music, dance. My name is Aphrosoul Lukumi, and I invite you to come with me to, MOJÙGBÁ.
