Su is a Singing leader running UK community choirs in Bath, Bruton and London but also works internationally. 25 years of visiting Baka Rainforest People in Africa has inspired joyful singing workshops from this unbroken musical culture.

The Baka are thought to be the first humans to sing. The rainforest singing styles builds community, traditionally helps to heal illness and argument, soothes a baby and enchants the animals ensuring luck in the hunt.

It is a beautiful interlocking of sound, a type of yodel and has a simple accessible rhythm. It is fun for singers or even if you think you are not a singer. Su is initiated by the Baka women to share this singing and royalties go back to them for projects in the forest.
