A few words about the workshop

The voice, inside and outside the body

What is voice? What is our real voice? What is song? What is expression? How are these connected with our soul and emotions? How do we externalize our true feelings? What is our real voice and why do other people have that look of disapproval when we are among friends and start singing?

The seminar in Ikaria is going to deal with this kind of notions and our inner truth...

Each voice is unique...as it expresses the personal experiences of each one of us.

We are going to explore relaxation, training and strengthening techniques of the voice, as well as the role and importance of respiration, so as to avoid any possible damage caused by its misuse.

We are going to study the sounds of nature in relation to our voice, traditional songs and our role in them. Study and be alert through exercises for the voice, the body and the soul. Original melodies and percussion accompaniment produced by our own body. These and many more elements of nature and songs we are going to deal with in Ikaria.

Let’s explore our voice, let’s experiment with traditional songs of our homeland, let’s improvise, let’s free ourselves!

Precondition of participation: Open mind and clean energy.

Password: Make sure you have your instrument with you.
