It comes as no surprise to me that many of you wish to simply zone out and groove to some good tunes. Hence I have ceased Covid psa's as I guess we have the idea by now! I have changed servers to one with more capacity for an expanded playlist so even though I am following a similar train of thought it can be more varied at times. My personal indulgence is featuring "Ozrich Tentacles" who were a major band in my life. The format is anything goes....so on that front I have only just started with selections from Sun Ra, Miles Davis to Norah Jones.
This year has certainly been a test for all of us around the globe and I wish you all well. Many friends of mine have had Covid but none fatal, my heart goes out to those who have lost a friend or family member. Many musicians have fallen to Covid who I remember well and celebrate their creativity with selections on Radio Woyaya. Notably my top lost Musical Gems were Toots Hibbert and Manu Dibango. Selections range from 1950's Blues, Motown, Jazz Classics, Reggae Vibes, Global Grooves, African Rhythms, Soca, Cumbia, Rock and more. So reach out to me! I would love it. Stay safe my friends!

Do your own thing. Feel free and move your body and excite your soul. Ecstatic dance and Free-form movement. Woyaya dance is very simply, people dancing with no planned steps or moves, no choreography, no memorization, no goals, no expected form or sequence. We play a wide and eclectic, dance-able range of music. You might hear tunes from any era in which music has been recorded! The genres will be wide….and you can be sure that it will be very danceable and very fun!
People participating in the dance may move in any way they want, jump, spin, skip, do ballet, modern, hip hop, freestyle, swing, tap (with invisible tap shoes), clown, dubstep, contact dance or salsa. People might also lie down, hold still, freeze, move very slowly, do yoga, stretch, or sit quietly for parts of the dance. Any dancing movement that comes from you is welcome. You may find a partner spontaneously and dance with that person.
Music crosses borders, transcends barriers, bridges gaps and reaches the places other art forms can not reach. Your heart and soul benefit greatly from submitting to the Rhythm!
Just what we need during Covid!
