London Rainforest Choir Workshop with Su Hart

Sunday 11 September 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The choir workshops are open to all. Come along and learn the joyful compelling singing of the Baka rain forest people of Central Africa. Their multi-layered polyphony has accompanied daily tasks and ritual for millennia and is great fun. We will learn songs and chants to soothe babies, play with children, enchant animals, heal arguments and celebrate the abundance of life.

Working towards performances to raise funds and awareness for rain forest and other indigenous people and the environment.

For more information about Su Hart and the Baka culture, along with an article by Dr Jerome Lewis entitled ‘The scarcity myth: what hunter gatherers can teach us about sharing. Managing abundance, not chasing scarcity: the real challenge for the 21st century’ – click here.

10% of all proceeds will go to the Baka people (http://www.1heart.org)
