Tribal is a co-creative space.

The energy and inspiration that you bring is the fuel for the creations of our imagination. Let us create a wonderland of earthen music and dance, celebrating as our ancestors have for time beyond memory.

Our collective heartbeat is the trancing rhythms of the drums. Our collective focus is the enchanting and purifying heat of our sacred fire, our collective vision is that of a co-creative community sharing music, dance and connectivity in remembrance that life is beautiful, the earth is our mother and we are all beings of amazing uniqueness with gifts of love to share with our earth family. If you see a place where you can assist the crew please do, in sharing we become family.

Tribal hosts acoustic drumming & other native instruments in a wonderland of organic sculpture and much barefoot dancing around the fire. Bring your percussion, your fire toys, your inspiration and join in this sharing space.

A number of the Knowledge & Inspirational Sharing Sessions (KISS/workshops) also take place here – such as african drumming, didjeridoo (with si from Wild Marmalade), Harakeke (maori weaving crafts), african dance, samba percussion & dance (with Samba del Sol), art mandalas, dream catchers, and world voice (with Tui from Mamaku Project).

Anyone able to assist with offers of ti-pis, big drums etc, please contact Al on 0272727624 or

Lets Celebrate 2012 in style!
