Su Hart is an experienced and engaging teacher with a joyful and supportive style.
Inspired by 25 years of visiting Baka Rainforest People in Central Africa and learning from their unbroken musical culture has inspired this joyful singing workshop.
Song builds community, heal illness and argument, soothes babies and the ‘Yelli’ yodel enchants the animals ensuring luck in the hunt.
