Workshop, 20:00–21:00:

Learn how to tie different models of turbans & head wraps inspired by the Afro-Atlantic diaspora w/ Turbante.se. Founder Thaís Muniz’s project shares her research about the complex history of turbans and head wraps from the Afro-Brazilian culture to the Afro-Atlantic diaspora, from ancient to contemporary times. The Yoruba culture, the Candomblé religion, the Orishas and the Baianas are the starting point to highlight their meanings in different contexts. Discussing aesthetics, politics, art and empowerment, you’ll discover practical ways of tying more than 10 models of head wraps and turbans. Turbante-se is a Brazilian-Portuguese neologism that means 'Turban Yourself'.

Woweembeem: occasional parties and mixtapes promoting music from Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean / French West Indies, South America and all corners of the globe. Celebratory sounds to nourish the soul. All nations under a groove.
