This is my contemplation to the deep and beautiful song from Master Brazilian Musician Gilberto Gil.
I dedicate this dance to all who live this peace through art, science, life philosophy and a way of living. Muito obrigada Axé!
This Dance is about belonging, connection to nature & peace. Its about faith, that faith that you feel with your entire being. It’s about roots. About Axé and the Orixás.
For me it’s also about home, Brazil. And Bahia!
In the beautiful voices of Ivete Sangalo and Maria Bethânia this song becomes a chant, an anthem for peace.
The words say: “Put all the weapons away, and Samba!”
The mission is peace.
To you my colleagues, teachers, fellow dancers, students and friends all over the world!
Let's keep this dance alive!
