YOKE Flood Fundraiser with Moontide
19 March @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
We are sure many of us down here in Melbourne are feeling utterly shocked and helpless at the current Northern NSW situation. We have had news firsthand at just how devastating the past weeks have left our relatives in flood-affected areas, and want to offer this expression of support in the ways we know how. Join us on Saturday March 19 on the conscious dance floor, to shine our light where needed. Sending prayers of hope, movement, flow and release to where it is needed…
YOKE is a Melbourne based community fusing dance & self expression with live and electronic beats. The word YOKE is a Sanskrit term meaning ‘coming together’, forming union. Our workshops are about facilitating authentic connections to oneself and one other in a space completely free from judgments. We invite you to take the time to let go of the mind and drop into the body through conscious dance, movement and meditation. YOKE is a collaborative consciousness calling all individuals seeking to express intuitively and energize the soul.
At YOKE we believe in oneness at the core of all existence. With the help of our resident DJs and musicians, who play a mixture of down tempo, deep house, techno, world and live sound healing, we will take you on a two-hour journey releasing the mind and opening the heart. Always guided by your own body’s wisdom, the sacred space and music provided become a backing track to the deeper lessons that lie within ourselves when we truly let go.
Sound by MOONTIDE Aus
Moontide is a project born in the mountains of Colombia, drawing from the vibrant culture of the Andes. The Moontide hybrid live set is designed to take listeners on a journey, encompassing live sampling and instrumentation as well as spoken word. The undercurrent of water has been a recurring theme for his productions as a motif for the collective healing of the planet and soul. The Moontide project has been exclusively showcased at notable events in Australia including Rainbow Serpent, Tanglewood, Rancho Relaxo and the Yoke Conscious Dance Party.
Moontide’s main influences include Nicolas Jaar, Bonobo, Dhafer Youssef, Stavroz and Nicola Cruz. His music appears on Beat & Path, Moon by Day as well as Lump Records. From the love and attention to detail that is poured into every element of his sets, the Moontide experience continues to expand with the intention of unifying listeners, heart to heart, soul to soul.
