EARTHDANCE 2007: The Global Festival for Peace, Sat 15 Sept, Halifax

By Administrator

Head on East Music presents Earthdance Halifax , September 15th 2007. Featuring live performances from Dr dFunkt, Infinity Circus and the drummers and throat singers of the Mic Mac Friendship Center. DJ's include Psylozen and Ben Rama spinning ambient and psytrance.

The event takes place at the North St Church (5657 North St) in Halifax from 7.30pm to 1am, cover is $10 on the door and the event is all ages. Profits from the show will be donated to Medecins Sans Frontiers - Doctors Without Borders.

In 2006, Earthdance united over 340 locations in 57 countries through music and dance in celebration of peace. This year, Halifax is the only Atlantic Canadian location for this annual global event – so why not make a note to organize an event in your own hone town next year?

Earthdance was conceived in 1996 by artist/musician Chris Deckker, as a vision to unite the whole world through the universal platform of dance and music. Earthdance has now become the largest global synchronized dance event in the world. What began in 1997, with 22 cities in 18 countries has now occurred in over 360 locations with 340 locations in 57 countries participating in 2006 alone! Rising out of the global electronic music scene, Earthdance has now grown to include a diverse cross-section of musical genres including world music, jazz, conscious hip-hop, folk and reggae.

Earthdance has shown how the potent combination of music, dance and technology can be harnessed for positive and humanitarian aims. For one night all around the globe, people join together to dance as one global community, united with a common vision for peace and humanitarian aims.

Every year, Earthdance continues to grow in volume and scope. This year we are gearing up to include as many people on the planet as possible through a number of new initiatives and by making the Prayer for Peace track available to everyone.

On September 15 at 8pm when Earthdance events around the world will unite in the Global Prayer for Peace…so join in!
