SINGING WORKSHOP | Oficina KWIMBA: vivência de canto e ancestralidade | 10-20€
August 6, 2022 @ 15:00 - 18:00€10 – €20
Here’s what BOTA, the organizers of this Saturday afternoon workshop, say:
“KWIMBA in jaua, the language of one of the peoples from which she is descended, means SING. It is an integrated concept of technique, knowledge, experience, and creation developed by Lenna Bahule, from her personal journey of discovery of her own voice and creativity. In it she presents elements that she considers essential for any singer who is seeking to be aligned with her art and musical creation. These elements are the body, movement, the voice, memories, and the singing (sound) itself.
This is an experience to express joy, connection, and ancestrality through singing, movement, and play using body music practices and the creative universe of the popular arts of Mozambique.”
About your teacher:
