The International Body Music Festival comes to the Freight for a family matinee featuring a host of artists from the Bay Area and beyond—Brazil, Indonesia, Turkey, Israel, Canada, and the Canary Islands.  Body music, which includes clapping, snapping, stepping, and many kinds of vocalizing, is music you can see, dance you can hear.  The different styles of body music from around the world reveal other times and other cultures—they hold memories, cultural legacies, wisdom in rhythm, embodied in the body, internal, external, eternal.

On stage this afternoon are Theatre A Tempo from Quebec, KeKeÇa from Turkey, Lior Shoov from Israel, the San Francisco School Student Ensemble, and excerpts from Body Tjak 13, a new collaboration featuring Corposonic from Oakland, Çudamani from Bali, and Barbatuques from Brazil.

Body music is incredibly fun to watch, hear, and create for yourself.  It’s art for all ages, and we’ll have a free with admission workshop—Hand Games from Around the World—in the lobby starting at 1 p.m.  Come and join the fun Sunday afternoon at the Freight. It’s good for the mind, the body, and the spirit! percussion, with bells, box, body and toys.
