World of Voices – Folk & World Music

Travel and learn about the world through song.
On Zoom with great song leaders from around the world.

WORLD OF VOICES:
This is a “World Music Voice Camp” online with different workshops every month.
I invite amazing guest voice leaders from different countries, cultures & traditions for every workshop. The workshops will be a way to travel and learn about our world and get to sing fabulous songs, together with really inspiring teachers.
By extension, World of Voices will, as soon as it is possible to have festivals again, become a voice and song camp at “Långrådna Kultur”, a culture centre on the east coast of Sweden. A voice camp with world music and community singing.
What if people who meet for the first time in person then have songs, harmonies and melodies as a common language. Wouldn’t it be incredibly beautiful! Imagine when we can all meet and burst out into song together! Imagine all the tears and laughter, when you realise that you were never alone in your home in front of your screen. You were building bonds with people you did not know through singing.
Let this workshop series online create unity and love , connections and curiosity for folk & world music, traditions and cultures and each other. Let us travel through song and “Sing the world” together! We have to do what we can now, otherwise we will not be able to do what we dream of in the future. Lets start now!
9/5 is the second workshop in this project. I´m so exited to invite two new amazing voice leaders I know. They will be joining me from London and Leksand.
I will host the session from Långrådna Kultur in Sweden.
All songs are taught by ear – Everyone is welcome – No Experience of singing is needed.

Singer and folk musician from Leksand, Sweden. Established famous voice in the new generation of folk singers. She has achieved great success with, among other things, folk music groups as Ranarim and Rosenberg’s 7a with great albums and tours in Japan, USA and Europe. She can also be heard in the Folk music trio Sandén-Nygårds-Carr and the duo SONG SISTERS and the children’s show “Långt bort i skogen” (Far into the forest).
Sofia is employed as a folk singing teacher at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm.

The project is, among other things, about examining and develop collective methods for improvisation within folk song.
Sofia received Region Dalarna’s culture prize 2019 of SEK 100,000
“Sofia has great presens on stage, a playfulness and glow that touches us all and makes us listen. As a forest spirit with stady boots she doesn fear to walk the hidden path in the folk music.
