A guide through sound and the voice with world class Indian classical musician, Vinod Prasanna.
The theme of this workshop is FOCUS. How this ancient yet ever-evolving practice can help find more than your voice, a deep connection and peace that you can create by yourself.
Suitable for any one - newcomers to music, to the advanced.
Just Passion and Attentiveness being perquisites.
This 2 hr workshop will be held in the right-hand mezzanine perched above a magnificent sound chamber of The Good Shepherd Chapel in Abbotsford.
We will be covering the idea of Raags, learning a composition and improvising in Yaman, an introduction to Taal/ Rhythms in Indian music, and Tihais. We will commence the session with a short meditation and an Alaap by Vinod on Bansuri to get us all into the one space.
'...we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same...One becomes in some area an athlete of God.' - Martha Graham
