Peace Dances home

This voice workshop consists mainly of harmony chanting of Taizé chants
and harmony chants from the Dances of Universal Peace.
Magic harmonies are not only found in the Taizé chants - many peace dance chants (especially the Sufi chants) are suitable for harmony singing, but often - due to lack of numbers or the inability of the dance leader - they are only sung in unison.
In this workshop there will be plenty of opportunity to learn simple sacred chants (honouring various religious / spiritual tranditions) - and to experience the magic of singing them in harmony with others.
The human voice is a gateway to the soul. Singing in harmony with others resonates with all creation: sun, moon and the planets, the elements around us - and the atoms in us.
The chants are usually short and easier to learn than those of Nickomo's "Harmonic Temple".
Some of them will be in English or in powerful mantric languages like Latin, Arabic or Sanscrit.
Be prepared for a journey into a blissful world of sound and magic.
No experience required; it would help, if you'd dare to open your mouth - and ideally your heart as well...
