ANCESTRAL is a place where we come together to do as our forefathers and mothers did, celebrate life. Where they celebrated under the pale moonlight, next to a vibrant fire and over the pounding of animal skin. We celebrate in an intimate venue or an open festival, under a warm sound-system and through the enticement of our Artists & DJs.

ANCESTRAL is a conceptual event that has been influenced by the sound, AncestralSoul. The sound which is being made famous by Central African co-founder and DJ/Producer, Boddhi Satva. Together with American co-founder and DJ, Ivan Diaz, they provide a platform for ANCESTRAL music from all parts of the world. From Argentina to Zimbabwe all good music has its history and it’s future.


ANCESTRAL was created 3 years ago in 2014 in Paris. They have have done a total 20 events in 6 different countries including beach and boat parties as well as festivals. They have had guest DJs from all parts of the world such as; Jose Marquez (United States), DJ Satelite (Angola) Mr. Raoul K (Ivory Coast), Umoja (Netherlands), and Shimza (South Africa), just to name a few. With 2017 seeing ANCESTRAL making it’s
debut in London, Dubai and in Holland there is no sign of extinguishing the fire that ANCESTRAL creates on their dancefloors. We hope you will join us as we continue pushing music to the people from the people. Longue vie ANCESTRAL!
