Soyal Party

In Holidays, local news, music, personal, show dates on December 19, 2008 by Editor Z

On the night that just so happens to be the night of my birthday, is the night before the winter solstice. In many cultures the Winter Solstice is celebrated. And it will be Saturday night December 20 at the Northampton Center for the Arts.

There will be a drum circle, art, DJ Brando, and the Afro beat band Shokazoba will be playing and more. The Soyal is celebrated by the Hopi and Zuni Indians to celebrate the awakening of the sun. This will be an early celebration since the solstice and the Soyal celebrations are actually the next day on December 21 which is also the shortest day of the year.
