Sol Dance Presents:
Deya Dova live in Atlanta
“An Evening of Dance, Ceremony, & Celebration Through an Embodied Honoring of the Ancestors”
Opening Set by Scott Houston
Ceremonial Facilitation by Maya Lemberg
Greetings dearest Sol Dance Family! Here we are, yet again, on the seasonal brink of the 3rd iteration of our Sol Dance Presents series. For this special occasion, we are thrilled to be working with Reciprocity Music in bringing the internationally renowned duo – Deya Dova – to Atlanta for the first time ever as part of their US tour! We humbly invite each of you to join us on this epic ride we are invoking with the namesake – Ancestral. Because the date of this event falls so close to Halloween & the “Day of the Dead” portal, it is our intention that through Deya Dova’s music + our dancing & communal-celebration, we may honor all of our ascended loved ones, spirit guides & allies in a truly magnificent fashion. We highly encourage everyone to come dressed in CEREMONIAL ATTIRE – aka as the highest vision of themselves, spirit guides, spirit animals, allies, or in honor of ancestral lineages.
Please read on to find out more about what we have in store for you. May all we love thrive. Sol Dance presents are 18+ events.
The Deya Dova live experience, a highly visual live-show that has evolved as a collective ceremony, invokes a unified field, dance floor immersion of high vibrational global-bass sound. An ecstatic primal experience, the performance invokes the full range of human response. Together – we journey from ancient Earth to the Stars.
Travel on a quantum music journey to connect with the signature frequencies of ancient Earth energy centers from around the planet. Featuring select remixes and live versions of the Planetary Grid Music together with music from the Myth of the Cave & Symbiotic albums.
Deya Dova creates & designs her own avatar costuming and works in collaboration with a host of performing artists to weave euphoric mythic ritual performance.

Deya taught herself music sitting around fires under immense desert starscapes, singing straight from her soul.
Co-producing with her partner, Hamilton Barnett, together they fuse ancient song-lines with the futurism of Global Bass music. Blending the primal & divine frequencies of Deya’s voice with organic beats and the sacred instrumentation of world infused sonic tapestries.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Ecstatic Dance?
Ecstatic Dance is a freeform movement journey, held in a safe & sacred container. Most dances are facilitated by a trained DJ specifically chosen for their ability to curate an experience designed to help you move. Through Ecstatic Dance you will find a communal opportunity to connect more deeply with your body and self-expression.
Do I need to know how to dance in order to participate?
Absolutely no dance experience is necessary! In this regard, Sol Dance (and generally any other kind of “Ecstatic Dance” event) becomes the perfect outlet for those who think they “can’t dance”.
We encourage participants to give themselves full permission to be themselves – move how you want to move in every given moment, feel how you feel, etc. There is no way to get it wrong (but please be consensual with others).
Wait... Is this a party?
Believe it or not, Sol Dance is NOT a party. That isn’t to say we don’t have a lot of fun doing what we do, but what we offer is more than a party. First off, Sol Dance is a substance-free environment. We get high off of the music, dance, and communal experience. Moreover, Sol Dance provides an opportunity to go deep within yourself and be physically moved by your body and inner wisdom. While this is also a community event, you can choose for it to be an intimately personal process.
What kind of music can I expect?
With sounds ranging from: soulful, worldly, eclectic, deep, serene, and funky, you can expect a dynamic sonic arrangement from our resident DJs. You can listen to some examples here.
Can I arrive anytime?
Can I just come and watch?
We highly encourage 100% of your embodied participation as this is a movement-based experience. That being said, If you would like to stay on a blanket, yoga mat, or even the grass before you feel called to move your body – that’s totally fine!
How can I prepare?
Wearing anything that allows you to move comfortably.
Wearing shoes is optional (for outdoor events only!)
Bringing a full water bottle.
Bringing a mat or blanket to sit on the ground or in the grass (for outdoor events!)
Utilizing sun-protection ie. hats, sun glasses, or lotion!
Make sure to bring an open mind & heart!
Can I bring my kids?
Yes! We welcome people of all ages! Our community loves when children are present! Bring the whole family.
