In partnership with the City of Santa Monica and Heal the Bay, more than 300 artists present sacred traditions from seven lineages of world cultures on Santa Monica Beach at Dorothy Green Park today from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The opening procession includes La Canada High School Marching Band; Palau Keali’i O Nalani and Halau O Lilinoe; Swing Brazil Tribe with Viver Brasil, Capoeira Batuque, Seara de Caridade do Cabolo Tupinamba and the Elders of the Diaspora; Senshin Buddhist Temple’s Kinnara Taiko; Agape Choir; and Remo Drum Circle.
Playing a central role is the Ti’at Society as they paddle their traditional canoe beyond the ocean’s breakwaters carrying offerings and sacred blessings to the four corners of the Earth.
