This workshop will be held on zoom and is open to a limited number of participants. The workshops will take place on Tuesdays from 6pm-7pm (AEST)/ 11am-12pm (Greece time) throughout the month of November. Once you have registered, you will receive a meeting link and resources in the lead up to each workshop.

Together we will explore our inner voices, our forgotten sounds, our different resonances and from there we will start an exciting journey to different music cultures that vibrate our souls.


WORKSHOP THEMES

The safe path to a healthy voice:
The physiology and anatomy of voice diaphragmatic breathing, volume and vocal support and activation of vocal resonance. The voice is a powerful medium of communication and it is important to cultivate it in a healthy way to achieve free and rich vocal expression.


Repertoire:
In this music trip around the world we will sing polyphonic folk songs from the mountains of Epirus, traditional Greek lullabies, we will discover rhythms from North Greece, stories from our neighbours in Magna Grecia (South Italy), passionate tunes of the free Roma people, we will dream and travel through melodies from the Balkans and the Mediterranean Sea to Latin America. We hear the stories behind the songs and most of all how music is a universal language beyond borders or races.


Playing with our voices:
We will explore different vocal qualities and tones playing humorous, unusual vocal games apart from the melodic vocabulary of speech; we are introduced to the magical universe of vocals, extended vocals, and freestyle vocabularies. We will harmonize the head and the heart, our inner and outer world; We will express ourselves intellectually and emotionally.
