In one day you will learn how to overtone chant...

Overtone chanting is an ancient vocal technique of holding a single note and simultaneously sounding the harmonics of that note.

The harmonics are heard above the drone note as a high pitched flute-like or bell-like sound.
As well as being intriguing and fun, overtone singing offers a unique way of using the voice in a relaxed way which can have many benefits:

improve our well-being, increase concentration and attentiveness in a way which is both calming and invigorating.

The workshop will cover:
- learning and experimenting with the use of the khoomei and the sygyt styles
- theory: what overtones are
- overtones in relation to the use of vowel sounds
- overtone chanting in different cultures
- the use of overtones for well-being
- sound baths
- an introduction to cymatics, how sound influences matter

The maximum number of participants for this workshop is 15. Advance booking is essential, please
