From tundra to tropics, people snap, clap, step, and sing artful music. Body music ignites audiences with music you can see, dance you can hear – it’s the oldest music on the planet, and it's brand new. The International Body Music Festival, founded in 2008, is the only gathering of its kind, featuring traditional and contemporary Body Music artists from across the globe. Dancer, educator and body percussionist extraordinaire Keith Terry serves as Artistic Director. The Village Voice says that Keith “lifts you to a philosophical plane of exquisite lucidity usually only reached by means of controlled substances.” Every other year the festival travels overseas – to Brazil, Turkey, Indonesia, Italy, and, next year, Paris – but this year it’s right here in the Bay Area, and not to be missed!
