About The Event

A workshop and participatory performance event. 

Singing workshops with world leading facilitators exploring; circle singing and vocal improvisation with Anthropos, traditional Afro-Brazilian songs in 3 part harmonies and North-Eastern Brazilian Maracatu songs with Baque Luar. The day will culminate in a finale concert with performances from the facilitators and showcasing to the public some of the work from the day with the participants. 

Anthropos are an ensemble of singers from diverse backgrounds come together to reimagine some of the sounds and songs early humans might have created and shared together. The singers of Anthropos will deliver a wokshop giving participants new singing approaches and an insight into their process of creating what they call ‘a cappella collaborative vocal improvisation’. Using invented language and a very broad spectrum of vocal techniques and musical influences from across the planet, they aim to recreate how humans might have made music as part of the fabric of their ordinary life and rituals, before music and singing became cultural commodities. They sing aspects of the natural world, the elements, songs of work, dignity, protection, mourning, celebration, healing, lullaby and prayer.

Baque Luar is a London-based collective of female and non-binary vocalists and percussionists from diverse backgrounds, united by their love of Brazilian and Afro-Brazilian roots music. Their music focuses on honouring feminine power and creativity, acknowledging struggles against oppression and praising nature at this critical ecological moment. Drawing inspiration from the rich soundscapes and traditions of maracatu, coco, bumba meu boi, tambores de Minas, and ciranda as well as sacred rhythms of Brazilian Candomblé, Baque Luar combines original multivocal compositions and arrangements with powerful percussive grooves. Meaning ’moonlit beat’, Baque Luar is also an ongoing exploration of feminine rhythmic creativity, engaging critically with gender imbalances in drumming traditions worldwide as well as the music industry at large.
