A Warrior’s Dance is a song written about the dance between the two warriors Oya and Ogun. Both powerful Orisha warriors approach their dance different in this story. Oya, wind – storm – lightening, enters the dance with power and beauty as she moves through the music like winds through the forest. Ogun interrupts her flow with his rhythmic metal work as he crafts a percussive story with his footwork. Oya answers his footwork with her own powerful and explosive movement. Showing how big and powerful she can be within her dance. The two converse, trading move for move, while simultaneously becoming one beautiful synchronized piece of choreography.
This entire show takes place in the rain forest amongst the frogs and the birds, as they watch the display of power collide with beauty in this warrior’s dance.
