29/01 OSARA x Lena Leszczyc

EDB combines the worlds of Ecstatic Dance, diverse dance music and sound system culture with prayer, mindfulness and ritual. 

Using the practice of Ecstatic Dance we create a held space for you to express, expand and experience rejuvenation through movement, dance and sound.

The experience is a modern day ritual where the communion of people, movement and sound serve as mediums for transformation, liberation and soul invigorating celebration.

Our community gatherings are sober and suitable for all ages, abilities and people.

Come as you are. Dance as you please. Be your uniqueness.

OSARA | DJ & Ceremony Leader

OSARA is a father, DJ and visionary, born in Wales with Celtic, Anglo and Sami roots.

He’s the founder and community leader of EDB which is the home of an ever growing and vibrant conscious community in the beating heart of Bristol city.

OSARA uniquely combines the worlds of diverse dance music and sound system culture with prayer, mindfulness and ritual, to create transformative dance journeys that are ever evolving and responding to the spirit of time, community, culture and place.

He loves to push the musical boundaries of Ecstatic Dance, taking the journey into the depths and to the edges, as well as exploring the full spectrum of energies and emotions. He finds inspiration from many sources; especially from underground dance music and the rich diverse music, sound system and club culture of the UK.

OSARA has DJ’d and facilitated at Ecstatic Dances in Los Angeles, London, Paris, Helsinki and Dallas to name a few. He has also DJed and led Ecstatic Dances at: Medicine Festival, Boomtown, Lovejam, amongst others festivals. He is a resident DJ for Ecstatic Dance UK, London.
