World Music Series: Singing around the World

Thursday from 16:00-17:00 h

Aleksandra Popovska

For whom
 Beginners with a good musical ear are encouraged to apply for this course as well as students with previous singing experience and the ability to read notes.

The songs, from many cultures and traditions, capture a message of oneness, connection, empathy, and empowerment. A simple act of singing can boost one's mood and well-being.

Each session will provide some physical and vocal warm-ups, and address some non-western singing techniques while exploring a range of uplifting and inspiring songs to sing. Enchanting melodies from Africa, unexpected rhythms from the Balkans, Spanish lullabies, traditional chants from Nordic countries, Indian mantras, etc.. Songs with universal themes of love and longing, loss and joy will be sung. The atmosphere of these classes is relaxed and friendly. 

Students testimonies :
"The lessons have become one of the landmarks in my week. Starting with gentle physical movement and breath awareness, leading into the vocal warmups feels like a natural invitation to sound and song. Each song has its own emotional landscape which we are invited to discover and in the process get in touch with our own feelings."
