Dakhká Khwáan Dancers and DJ Dash

The Dakhká Khwáan Dancers and DJ DASH create music that fuses First Nation Tlingit dance, and song with electronic music. The Dakhká Khwáan Dancers work to bring opportunity of cultural revitalization and social transformation within their communities by reclaiming their languages, traditional values through the traditional art form of song, drumming, dance, storytelling. Dash has worked with them to produce this innovative music which honors both the traditional and the contemporary in a way that is as exciting as it is moving. Together they have created Deconstruct Reconstruct which is a live multimedia performance that fuses Tlingit First Nation singing, drumming and dance with electronic music, and video. This high energy performance features carved cedar animal masks, stunning regalia, and floor shaking bass and beats that carry the unique voices of the Dakhká Khwáan Dancers into the future.
