Event description

Description


Marlia, is our first solo female performer and teacher. We met her the first time at HONA last year and were blown away by her personality and performance. The blend of her beautiful voice, combined with traditional Cypriot and Greek rhytms makes a very unique combination. Don't miss out on this one.


About Marlia

Marlia Project is much more than a musician. She has journeyed around the world with her music, offering live performances and workshops for her audience. Since releasing her debut album, she has taken her craft to the farthest corners of the globe, currently in the midst of her 'Rising VOICE 2020' tour. With a growing presence she is a powerful voice in the world of ‘Ceremonial/medicine music’ and the rising global community of people who are committed to residing in harmony with the Earth.

I am so excited the Hang or Handpan came into my life; I first met this instrument in 2003 in one of my trips to Switzerland. Finally after years, I have the opportunity to compose my songs and arrange traditional Cypriot, Greek and Bulgarian tunes on the handpan. It completely changed and reinforced my perspective & approach to music in general!

Workshop details

Saturday May 2nd - Handpan & Singing

Life and sound is interwoven. My passion is to share my discoveries and assist you to find your own personal way of integrating the relationship to the sound of your voice into your daily life and into your handpan compositions. I am a soundscaper. I walk in nature and listen carefully, often recording sounds, and then adding them to my songs. The sounds I recreate help me in a number of different ways, they can be a good mirror of my internal state. Tapping into sounds and their recreation often leads to song; sometimes new song and sometimes ancestral song that just comes straight from nowhere. Or so it seems. We begin with training your fingers on the handpan and your ears on the sounds. You will learn how to build up patterns on your instrument independently of your scale. You will develop touch, hand co-ordination and hand-independence skills. This workshop is designed to create a safe space and a state of bliss in a continually meditative state.
No prior experience in singing needed. All levels of handpan players welcome.

Sunday May 3 rd - Odd Rhythms of East Mediterranean

Welcome to this workshop on the use of odd time signatures on the handpan. Our goal will be to find comfort in playing other meters than 4/4. You will discover how rhythms are structured in bars and beats. You will learn how to create a melody from a pattern, creating rhythm cycles in flow. We will use clapping, singing, counting and dancing in the given meter to embody and internalise each rhythm. In this way you can practice when you’re away from your instrument. Most Western European music is based on rhythmic cycles of two, four or less commonly three beats. These correspond to the time signatures of 2/4, 4/4 and 3/4. To be clear we will treat 6/8, 7/8 and 9/8 as common too and create a tapestry of sound by weaving different rhythmic patterns and ornaments into a flowing composition.
For intermediate and advanced handpan players.
