"Connectance" is a monthly community event in Santa Cruz is designed to be a meaningful space for deep connection. It intentionally expands beyond the dance floor to allow access to all our relational tools. Imagine it as the love child of a festival and a house party. Of the three rooms in this beautiful space, one will be a dedicated squishy space for tea & cacao service where conversation is welcome and consensual cuddling is encouraged.

"Puerta Del Sol" is a new collaborative release on the trndmsk label by Yemanjo and J.Pool featuring remixes by Marco Tegui, Mollono.Bass and Slow Nomaden.

About Yemanjo: Yemanjo is a project of producer, DJ, and singer/multi-instrumentalist Ben Harris. His original music is a polyrhythmic concoction of downtempo/ethnic house beats blended with traditional instruments and tribal chants from Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.   He is well-known on the international conscious dance circuit in Europe, the US and in Central America, where he is part of the vanguard of a flowering dance scene in Lake Atitlan. His live sets are a hypnotic fusion of his original beats with live trumpet, vocals in three languages and other surprises.


This event is drug and alcohol free. All ages welcome with no charge for 16 and under. $30 cash at the door.
