FIESTA AFRICANA @ The Backstage Lounge –  Vancouver

Saturday, Sept 21st 2019

Dear Electropicalistas,
The Backstage Lounge is still open until the end of the year, so let’s dance ! How about this classic monthly Vancouver dance party featuring the best in new and vintage African, Latin, Brazilian and tropical dance music ! Special guest on percussion: Kurai Nyamukapa from the marvelous Zimbamoto band !




From Saskatchewan, Terrance Littletent and Chancz Perry bring to the New Works stage an energetic and heartwarming production that celebrates converging stories and traditions.

The scene is set in a park in Saskatchewan, where an Afro-Caribbean-Canadian hip hop artist and a world-renowned hoop dancer of Cree ancestry meet for the first time.

While sharing their dance forms and musical influences, learning about each other’s cultures and customs through dialogue, movement, and mutual exchange, the Artists realize they have much more in common than they had initially anticipated and create a melange of urban hip hop and traditional pow wow: The Hip Hop Hoop Dance.
