Indian Voice and Music Meditation
2:00 - 3:30pm
Led by Tritha Sinha
In this workshop, we will connect with our vocal chords. Understand the importance of listening, and open the precious tools of awareness that we have – the voice and the ear. We will meditate through silence, the sounds of trees and birds, and the Tibetan bowl music. Learn to calm our mind. And to sing the Sargam and feel the sounds vibrating inside our bodies, healing the heart and mind. Understand the concepts of Raga – based on the nature and time of day and night, or seasons or emotions.
And we will end the session by learning and chanting a Sanskrit Mantra, which has lasted over centuries.
Mongolian Overtone Singing
3:30 - 5:00pm
Led by Martin Dubois
Mongolian nomadic shepherds from the time of Genghis Khan sought to imitate the sounds produced by animals and nature: sheep, horses, water, wind. Thus, they gradually developed special singing techniques – the Xoomij and Jajila – where voice emits two sounds at once and becomes a drone that offers a range of harmonic melodies. Since then these songs called "diphonic songs" have been transmitted over time. Martin Dubois invites you to discover the basic techniques to penetrate this world and immerse yourself in this practice for the benefit of your voice, body and spirit.
