MAAFA: The Healing Room with Michaela Harrison & Friends ft. Bichini Bia Congo Dance Co.

Healing

Sonic healing with genre-traversing, globally conscious chanteuse Michaela Harrison and friends. This is a special MAAFA edition of The Healing Room.

Maafa is a Kiswahili word that means “great tragedy” or “horrific tragedy,” referring to the period called the Middle Passage or Transatlantic Slave Trade.   During that time, millions of captives from Africa were brought to the Americas where they were used as a labor force, persecuted, beaten, and many, separated from their families forever.

Stomping on stage with her is the Bichini Bia Congo Dance Theatre, established in 1979 by Jean-Claude Biougilla Biza (Sompa), is a performance theater that promotes the preservation and practice of authentic Congolese Dance and African culture.
