About the event
At The Selkie Collective we believe in connection, connection to nature, to each other and back to ourselves. We also believe that it's so important to do this in all differents kinds of ways, through spending time in nature, talking with others, dancing, art and singing. Sound carries with it so much power, there is something so special about singing together with others, the emotion that it holds and carries along with it messages that we can all relate to. We are very excited to have Bruce Ncube come back to Skye for another Harmony Singing Workshop
Bruce Ncube is a Zimbabwean musician with over 15 years of touring & traveling the UK teaching & performing in some of the world's biggest platforms such as WOMAD (England), /African Drum Village (Scotland), Edinburgh international Festival (Scotland), Aberdeen International Youth Festival (Scotland), World Music Workshop Festival (England), Skye Music Festival (Scotland)..Bruce specialises in teaching traditional songs from his native country of Zimbabwe in 3 to 6 part harmonies. His teaching is in the traditional, oral/aural way; reminiscent of long ago when people people would gather around a fire in the evenings, at weddings & funerals or whilst working in the fields and start weaving harmonies. His approach is inclusive & participatory, designed to build people's confidence in singing. The songs he teaches are emotionally charged & uplifting, carrying messages of struggle, hope, determination, courage, inspiration & togetherness. One does not need to be experienced in singing to take part in his workshops.
