Tribal Gathering 2016 – Panama
Tribal Gathering is more than a festival, it is an indigenous cultural celebration, a gathering of tribes, from the past and present, it is a place where ancient and modern converge in symbiotic harmony, where time is transcended and the world come together.
Tribal Gathering 2016 is a beautiful small gathering of dedicated people from all over the world who flew far away to spend a week or more together in a jungle on a Caribbean beach. The gathering is, first and for all, a fundraising event for Geoparadise, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) working with indigenous communities, with the aim of setting up projects that in the long term create leverage for those communities.
The gathering spans over 18 days on an amazing beach in the Caribbean, providing a space for discourse, ceremony and fun. The first half of it is dedicated to the tribes and their shaman with several zones offering workshops, ceremonies and indigenous music. Slowly the pace picks up and we seemingly travel through time to the finale of five days of electronic music and what might be described as our modern rituals of dance, art and creativity.
