Poranguí – Live in Eugene ft. Youssoupha Sidibe Chakaruna World Bridging Tour: A Journey of Sound, Movement, and Spirit



Prepare to embark on a transcendent journey with the world-renowned musician, healer, and educator Poranguí, as he graces Eugene, Oregon on April 21st at The Wow Hall. Accompanied by the visionary co-facilitator Ashley Klein, they extend an invitation to an embodied experience that seamlessly bridges the seen and unseen worlds. Through the universal language of music, dance, and authentic expression, Poranguí’s live improvised performances and Ashley’s spoken guidance coalesce with captivating visual projections, promising an unparalleled odyssey that leaves us more whole, alive, and deeply connected.

The Chakaruna World Bridging Tour draws its inspiration from the ancient Quechua concept of “Chakaruna,” meaning World Bridger. “Chaka” represents the Bridge, while “Runa” symbolizes the People, reflecting the sacred duty of forging connections between the tangible and the intangible, the Earth and the Spirit, the individual and the collective. Through this tour, Poranguí invites us to step into our own roles as Chakarunas, intricately weaving our spirits into the vibrant tapestry of life and synchronizing with the pulsating heartbeat of the Earth.


Youssoupha Sidibe

We’re honored to showcase Youssoupha Sidibe, a Grammy-nominated virtuoso of the Kora from Senegal. Merging timeless West African harmonies with contemporary feel, Youssoupha embodies the tour’s spirit of connecting worlds. His soulful preludes set a transcendent tone, inviting us into a night of rich cultural harmony and musical magic.
