 Peace Through Music

At the core of Aloha Africa is Love Tribe, a circle of women who study traditional African drumming and dance, and who dedicate their practice to loving the earth, one another, and the great web of life.

Since 2001 Love Tribe has been sharing music, dance, and aloha at weddings, funerals, birthdays, festivals, ceremonies, classes, and concerts. 
  When working with a larger ensemble of dancers and drummers, or when a teacher from Africa is on Kauai, the group calls itself Aloha Africa.

Cultural Exchange

There is powerful medicine in the unity of earth-based cultures. In both Hawaii and Africa, dancers and musicians are the keepers of tradition, history, and spiritual practices. The Aloha Africa cultural exchange project provides an authentic means to preserve and transmit deep indigenous knowledge … dancer to dancer, drummer to drummer.
