Join us for a plunge into the deep end of the pool as we
revive the untamed longings of the Eternal Dance, the
Spontaneously Arising ecstatic agony of endless bliss
born at the dawn of consciousness. Axis Mundi has
long been enticing Bay Area audiences to flow into
Trance Dancing and Moving Meditation as our completely
original improvised music recreates the ancient cave rituals
of Vedic India. Merging Kundalini Trance Chant, Didjeridu
& pulsing World Beat Percussion, this "haunting frightening
beautiful wild ground breaking Muse-sic" metamorphoses
throughout the set in a journey of whirling sacred sound and
seethes with the pure power of primal energy erupting from
the cauldron of deepest inner space.

"DO NOT MISS AXIS MUNDI PERFORMING LIVE! They are better
than anything naughty you could eat, drink or smoke. Amazing,
knee weakening, intense and deep. We danced like entranced
things and blissed out to the nth degree." Chris & Robert


"I've never felt so alive and so in myself - such in-spiring dancing.
Many many thanks for the inspired concert of your moving and
outrageous music. My whole being is happy this morning, having
had the experience of all-out, all-in, all-chakra trans-dancing in
a beautiful setting." Catherine
