  • Hi Folks ... Instead of creating our usual grooves that intermingle on the drums, we will do the same, but with our voices in a very playful, intuitive and spontaneous way, improvised on the spot. Much of this exploration will be influenced on work I have done with Bobby McFerrin, who created his Circle Songs method.

    Quoting McFerrin ... "It's primal, unadorned singing. I've always felt that singing a song without words makes one song a thousand songs because the people who hear it can bring their own stories to it. The use of wordless melodies to convey gratitude and spirituality is perhaps the most ancient form of sacred sound. The rhythmic repetition of the sounds is what gives the songs their circular shape and chant like structure."

    Also, we shall be using the Shruti Box, which is a simple hand-pumped/operated instrument which provides a rich drone background to support singing and musical exploration.

    No experience is necessary! Just show up with the intention of being open and willing to engage in a playful spirit and to expect the unexpected! I hope you can join us.
