Extra Ancestral Company

Extra Ancestral Company is a visual arts performing group that strives to preserve and highlight the timeless healing modalities of music and dance. Due to the cultural genocide of colonization, African diaspora communities of color throughout the Americas have become disconnected from the importance of ancestral practices in connection to ancestral archetypes and Orisha therapy. Through educational performances, live drumming, workshops, festivals, and Orisha dances, the company seeks to reduce and heal the generational trauma in communities of color and the history that forced the separation of African people across the Atlantic and have endeavored to retain/embrace their cultural roots.
