You will learn to discover and explore your chanting voice and its possibilities with nurturing and supportive guidance. A four-stringed Indian drone instrument, called the Tanpura, will provide you with the backdrop to paint your picture of the sound vibrations coming through you.
You will experience deep healing vibrations of Nāda Yoga – the Yoga of sound in which we meditate and contemplate on single vowel sounds to create magic in our voices and hearts.
The cosmic sounds of Indian Music – Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, and Ni, will also be a subject of our study and experience together as we activate these sounds through us and align our sonic practices with our spiritual journey.
We will work on the vocal movements of Indian Music used for warming up and training the muscles to create fluidity in your voice.
You will learn an Indian Mantra/Kīrtan and chant your heart out for a rich vibrational and healing experience.
Through this, you will be experiencing the rich and therapeutic sounds of Indian Classical Music through a small live performance given by the master musician Sudhanshu Sharma, live in the studio.
Come, let the Divine sing through you!
