The Shine Choir presents Su Hart.Su is British, grew up in Gateshead, Tyne & Wear, now lives in Bath. She grew up singing in church and clubs, singing many traditional Geordie songs. Survived by busking, played in several bands and travelled extensively song gathering before living in the rainforest with the Baka and learning from them. Apart from singing in the band, Baka Beyond she runs workshops for children and adults about the singing and life of the Baka.

The Workshops cover:
- active "forest" listening
- forest vocal technique, breath control, voice placement and vocal release work songs - from baby-soothing to spiritual
- multi part singing - densely textured songs with overlapping, polyrhythmic, interdependent parts
- co-operative musical games and movement
- Yelli singing - forest yodelling for animal enchantment

As Su returns to the forest on a regular basis and learns new material from the source, her workshops are continually and vibrantly being re-invented.

What participants have said:

"Singing the Baka songs with Su and listening to her stories connects me to our human potential for deep listening and sensitivity. In Sheffield in the 21st century this is such a moving and powerful way to remember our connectedness. It works every time." - Helen Lyle. Community choir leader.

"After attending singing workshops for 20 years in the UK and abroad I rate Su Hart as one of the most exceptional leaders, in league with the stellar and best." - Alison Burns. Songwriter, workshop leader, community choir director.
