Source Singing: A Singing Workshop for Women - Tui Mamaki

As women, the anatomy within our pelvis and within our throat/larynx, bears an uncanny resemblance. Vocal chords look just like miniature vaginas! Increase your creative flow, your mojo, your peace. Deepen your connection with your voice - both physical and metaphorical. A workshop for singers, poets, maidens, mothers, crones, and all those in-between.

From hips to lips, from instinct to mind, from our source to the surface, we can practice a kind of singing that is embodied, authentic and powerful - meaning powerfully tender, sacred, resilient and unlimited in nuance. A safe place to enjoy our autonomous sensuality and to revel in our earthly belonging. Using a blend of gentle movement, breathing exercises and vocal techniques, drawn from various traditions, participants will be invited to connect with their voices and source in a physical, metaphorical and emotionally encompassing way. Participants will be guided through exercises that anchor them to their own feminine resilience, and be able to enjoy a ride in the creative flow. Using a selection of traditional repertoire, as well as some improvisation/composing techniques, the workshop group will gain the experience of simultaneous autonomy (embracing their individual vocal colour and power) and community (contributing to the pattern of a collective harmony).

Suitable for: women only (adults only)

Duration: 120 minutes

Presenter: Tui Mamaki


Bio

Tui Mamaki is a vocal explorer, performer, composer and workshop facilitator, with a passion for tuning in and tuning up the instruments that we are, as we navigate our lives with curiosity and flair. She has run community choirs, coached curious voices, run voice workshops all around the country over the last 16 years. Born in France, raised in Aotearoa/NZ, she can thank her musically adventurous parents for giving her a taste for sounds from far-away places. She has travelled to Pay Basque, India & Bulgaria to study voice. She has also obtained a Diploma of Theatre & Voice (UCOL) & a Bachelor of Music (UOA) in NZ and a Specialisation in Bulgarian Folklore Vocal (AMTII) Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
