Circle of Love, Esalen

Fiercely delicate ecstatic dance and music performance with Tony Khalife and Banafsheh
followed by a freedance and live music session

All are welcome in this circle of love; come, unleash your wild devotional dance and voice!

Internationally acclaimed, Banafsheh is an electrifying Persian Sacred dancer who fuses Sufi Ritual and Rumi’s message with Persian Dance, Flamenco and Tai Chi, creating her signature style of wild total abandon within a serene grounded core. Her offering of the timeless Sacred Feminine inside a contemporary gypsy dervish beckons all to engage, impart, and exalt.

Tony Khalife, a musician, singer, songwriter and messenger of love and peace, creates a seamless flow in which the ragas of Indian music flow into Western harmonies, and devotional Sufi dances flow to the different pulses, melodies and accents of Tony’s musical mastery- Indian, Middle-Eastern, flamenco and rock’ n’ roll, conspiring into a whirling tapestry of time signatures.
