Ritual Sister Song Project 2 – Den Haag – 6 sept t/m 8 nov 2018
Sisters let’s connect from our inner fire, our primal instinct and wisdom. Let’s give voice to our ancient wisdom and ancor this power on earth. Let’s invite and support eachother in this space. Let’s enjoy the natural flow of our voice, sing, dance, play and step in to this ritual for 9 times together and celebrate it with a concert!
The group will be guided by Dymphi Peeters. Dymphi is a world music voice artist and voice healer, who accompanies herself on the African kora and creates medicine music.
The goal of the project is to open the deep, warm, strong, soft, intuitive, creative female energy in ourselves and express it in an artistic way in sound which could be listened to as in a concert! We will create soundscapes with our voices and sing in an improvised language, accompanied by ancient instruments like Sjaman drum and African Kora and N’goni.
To get into the right energy Dymphi uses a special warming up for body and voice. She provides a safe and fun setting where you can explore yourself in the group. This voice improvisation workshop will invite you to step a little out of your comfort zone and show and express yourselve in a unique authentic way. It is a very good tool to enhance real contact, sisterhood and connection and being in the present moment. It also works very mindful as well to get more into your body and use your inner knowledge.
At the end of the project we will give an improvised concert together for an audience!
For this project I’m looking for women, who:
– have a good musical hearing and can sing in tune,
– have experience with improvisation,
– are creative with musical and vocal sounds,
– have explored their voice before,
– enjoy feminine energy and empowering women,
– have strong desire to sing and improvise together with women in sounds and perform with this! 🙂
– are available at least 7 of the 9 preparation evenings and the concert date of course.
If you recognize yourself in this description, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will invite you for a small voice test at my home, so we can meet each other. In this voice test I will ask you to improvise on different musical guidance like kora, voice and drum, so I can learn if you are a match for this project.
*** ABOUT DYMPHI ***
“I love my music to bring you release and peace and it is my mission to empower women by helping them to find their own voice, literally and metaphorically speaking”
Her roots lay in the East European Folk music and she gained experience in flamenco, voice expression, improvised music and also opera. Originally Dymphi studied Educational Science and Technology which she is combining with her ongoing spiritual researches and experiences. But life took her on the path of music, where her heart truly lies. In general Dymphi loves to develop and expand her horizons. Dymphi is the kora player of the Mehmet Polat Trio and she performs relaxation concerts with kora and vocals and gives workshops voice improvisation. With her new band Dragonfly she improvises live music for a community of dancers of Ecstatic Dance Utrecht.
The African Kora was invented by a woman, but men let it sound into the world. African kora players are named Griot’s or Jeli’s. We would call them troubadours: coaches of the leaders of the village. With their music and stories the Griot’s guide the leaders to stay in their leadership with themselves and their own feelings, to connect them with their inner source and to take decisions from that place. Dymphi is touched by this background of the kora very much.
