Holmfirth, West Yorkshire Learn songs from two of the world's oldest and most inspiring singing traditions – the rich harmony singing of the Republic of Georgia stretches back thousands of years, whilst the infectious rhythms and exuberance of songs from across Africa go back to the very first humans.

You will experience a fabulous range of songs, from gentle Georgian healing songs to full-throated gospel from South Africa, from hypnotic chants of West African Yoruba culture to the gorgeous clashing harmonies of the orthodox church in Georgia.

As always, Chris will teach everything by ear (no need to read music). No previous experience needed – just bring yourself and have a go. Whether you've only ever sung in the shower, or you're already in a choir, there will be something here for everyone. All in a fun, friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Comments from previous singing days:

"I thoroughly enjoyed my first singing day with you - you made it so much fun, and everyone was very warm and welcoming. I'm already looking forward to the next one!"

"Fabulous! Loved every minute. Fantastic to find that we made such wonderful music after only a few minutes."

"Thank you so much for a wonderful day and truly memorable songs! Loved it – leaving in a haze of not wanting to leave the experience ... and feeling exhausted too, wondering how you manage to keep going with so much passion and enthusiasm."
