BAE's commitment for the Planet
BAE is committed to regenerating our planet - our events support global re-forestation programsDiscover our forest
at Ambrosia Elixirs (Herbal Apothecary Bar), Bushwick, Brooklyn
AFTER Aligning with movements like AFROPUNK BK (2017), The Women’s March Alliance (2018, 2019), and the global Ecstatic Dance community, our 2018 Brooklyn summer of co-creation with Ambrosia Elixir Lounge and Cacao Laboratory (#moonlitBAE) refined our offerings to include the integral addition of herbalism and deeply intentional ceremony.
BAE has evolved into a sustainable ecosystem of self-empowerment artists in a shared process of discovery, creation, transformation, and deep healing, Before Anything Else.
◦❍◦ MOONLIT is not only an ode to the tide-turning power of the Full Moon, but also an experience of the alchemies that are amplified by her energy: immersive song, dance, poetry, & creation across the Healing Arts, truly in tune with natural elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water.
In our growth as a movement, We’ve really learned that the embodiment practices & the sonic offerings & the plant medicines are not just ways to fully land inside our own beautiful, whole bodies but also a way in which to journey across dimensions, to other times, galaxies, dreams, memories — the element of SPÅCE. To move in synchrony with all our relations, our ancestors, our spirit guides... we are remembering what the whole history of Humanity knew before we even got here: it’s vital to gather around a fire once a month and get MOONLIT ◦❍◦

BAE x HANOUX We partnered up with a local sustainable clothing company owned by creator Hannah Ross to create a sustainable collection of wearable art. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and hand-dyed in the Hanoux studio using low-impact dyes, locally printed with non-toxic inks, and is made of natural materials.
Together we have designed sweatshirts, leotards, crop tops, T-shirts, Tote bags and more, with all proceeds going to support the collective's community event production featuring local female artists across genres.
the #BAExHANOUX partnership is an expression of our commitment to a circular and abundant economy of, by, and for artists.

BASS YOGA A traveling collaboration between the Co-Founder and sound resident/sonic alchemist of BAE, Reem Abdou (dreeemy), and international yoga instructor and movement performer, Nikki Ortiz, BASSyoga is a merging of music and movement; an ecstatic state —the union of body:mind:soul:senses.
The project is a unique expression of deeply healing low-frequency binaural sound and high-vibrational movement medicine designed to ease & sync brainwaves and nurture energetic fluidity in the mind, body, and spirit.
