BRINGING THE 'LILA' TO LOS ANGELES

In some ways, there is no place as far away or as different in context than Los Angeles and where the Gnawas originate from.  But the hope of organizing a Lila in Los Angeles is to explore the possibilities of opening doors to other worlds beyond the familiar city life. 

The Lila presents an opportunity to take part in the rich heritage and tradition from another part of the world. 

The goal of the Lila ritual is not just to invite the audience to be spectators, but to actively encourage one to experience the event from the inside out. Audiences can immerse themselves in the colors and sounds of the Gnawa with performances rarely accessible to the public. 

The ancient musical rituals of the Gnawas are, even to this modern day, revered and practiced to invoke a connection into our spirit realm. It allows one to introspect deeply and open their mind's eye. 

The Lila is rooted in ancient purification rituals that allow audiences to partake in the ceremony sometimes leading to trance.

The spirits invoked are a beneficial force wanting to heal and help. So come look, listen and feel. Live the moment with each color and dance into the night.
