About The Event
Singer, composer and teacher of polyphony, Anita Daulne (ex Zap Mama) traces her cultural origins to the Congo and Belgium. For many years she has been researching the essentials of different vocal practices around the world, including yodel, counterpoint and call-and-response. Anita has travelled extensively throughout Africa, exchanging with griots, Tuareg women, Dogons, Peulhs, Pygmies, Mangbetu, Zulus and others, to bring these song techniques to the western world.
This is an intimate workshop aimed at singers or people with some prior experience of group/choral singing.
Her deep knowledge and mastery of traditional singing styles combined with an understanding of western musical traditions and professional rigour from her international performing experience makes her a unique authority in this field. Her workshops are engaging, demanding and leave your head and heart buzzing with energy and a ton of new songs!
Don't miss this rare opportunity to learn from and enjoy singing with a master!
