SONG and BEAT is an attempt to deepen the relationship between voice and drumming and our human experience. This is an opportunity to explore the depths of our own voice in connection to our body and soul, together with the pulsation of a beat or rhythm. 
Frame drums have been used in ancient times for ritualistic/spiritual ceremonies and to mark seasonal changes and rites of passage. 
Hosted by Elizabeth Nott, she will be mainly teaching frame drumming and body percussion, and guest artists will be invited for voice coaching/singing games.

Our guest artist this time is Uran Apak!
