Resonance, rhythm, relationship and beauty!
Inspired by the powerful vocal traditions of Bulgaria, drawing on her theatre, movement and improvisation training, TUi MAMAKi (NZ) facilitates dynamic vocal workshops. Through ancient melodies, participants are able to experiment with vocal timbre and harmony/dissonance, delve into the hypnotic charm of odd-meter rhythms and encounter exquisite vocal ornamentation. For community groups, choirs, schools, festivals…
TUi MAMAKi has studied traditional and contemporary vocals in Aotearoa/NZ, France, India and Bulgaria over the last 17 years. Her passion for acapella music has lead her to facilitate workshops and lead community choirs, alongside her professional vocal performances, throughout this time.
