Twerk 4 Mother Earth is an​ independent dance party series which will connect with the Soundwave Festival 9 theme of "Time" by traveling through three decades of dance music with genre bending DJ’s: Fela Kutchii, Namaste Shawty, Onmommas, and Red Corvette will produce past, present, and future soundscapes that make the body move. From 90’s Booty Bass, 2000’s Footwork, to today’s Future Beats, T4ME will ascend in a time travel twerk party for us all to get free.
