A series of workshops drawing on the techniques and traditions of the Baka Rainforest People in Africa – thought to be the first humans to have learned to sing.

Workshop leader Su Hart has worked for over 25 years with the Baka Rainforest People to build a series of workshops inspired by their joyful singing styles – beautiful interlocking vocal sounds that are rhythmic, powerful and completely entrancing. Fun and inclusive, this workshop builds co-operative, listening and rhythm skills and is fun for all ages and abilities.

Su Hart is a singing leader running UK community choirs in Bath, Bruton and London but also sings and teaches internationally. She has been initiated by the Baka women to share this singing, and royalties from performances go back to the Baka for projects in the forest.
