Advance tickets available at
BrasArte in partnership with Dance Mission presents a unique performing arts festival celebrating the spirit of Yemanjá, the African deity that honors the essential, beautiful and sometimes-dangerous nature of water. Inspired by the original Yemanjá Festival celebrated in Bahia, Brazil, the Yemanjá Arts Festival will bring together celebrated artists and dancers from across the Bay Area and Los Angeles, interpreters of traditional and modern art forms from the African diaspora (Brazil, the Caribbean, and the United States) that pay homage to Yemanjá/Iemanjá/Yemoja/Yemayá through their respective folkloric and spiritual traditions.
