(IMPORTANT UPDATE) Wild Fire – Sika & Koffie Concert, Motueka
February 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$20
**IMPORTANT NEWS – please read!**
Unfortunately Koffie has had to pull out due to a family crisis. We’re disappointed but trying to embrace the unfolding of the great mystery. I’ve decided to go ahead and amazingly have managed to find another dear brother, Fred Archer, to drum with me. The vibe will be a bit different, but still earthy, hearty and uplifting. I hope you will join us to dance on the earth. We’ll be sending out love and prayers to Koffie, his family, and anyone else in need. Much love, Sika x
(P.S. I’ve also posted a Facebook video and emailed all ticket holders. Any refund requests will be honoured.)
Original event listing:
Feel the heartbeat of the earth. An uplifting night of Didgeridoo & West African Drums!
Sika & Koffie join together in concert for the first time ever. Two masters of their crafts with enough positive energy to raise the roof!
Hypnotic drum rhythms and deep didgeridoo combine with voice and soaring natives flutes. A mixture of joyful, upbeat dance songs and slower, heartfelt improvisations. A dynamic fusion of raw power and sensitivity. Connect to yourself and let spirit move through you. Sit, stand or dance!
Koffie grew up in a village called Abor in the Volta Region of Ghana where traditional music and dance is part of daily life. He moved to New Zealand in 2013 and now goes out from his home in Dunedin to perform and teach African drumming and dance throughout the country.
Sika is a sound artist and multi-instrumental musician. He has performed at festivals and concerts worldwide for over 25 years and is known for his shamanic sound journeys. His work reflects a lifetime of listening to the rhythms of nature. Sika plays a vast collection of sacred instruments.
This is not a sound journey, so don’t expect to lie down!
There will be chairs and room to stand or dance. If you’d prefer to sit on the floor please bring a cushion.
A bottle of water is also recommended to stay hydrated.
CDs will be on sale – cash only.
We hope you can join us for this beautiful collaboration.
Tickets: $20 online or pay cash at the door (if still available)
