Global Sounds – Leah & Chloe of Rising Appalachia

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Leah and Chloe’s vocal workshop explores sound vibration and body movement as tools for self­awareness. The space is created to help each participant to embody the physical art of making sound from all the many resonators in the body. This workshop utilizes the expressions of the body through movement and music using a variety of techniques including vocal contact, creative sound, group harmonics, singing techniques and movement drawing upon Yoga and Modern Dance.
Song ­improvisation combined with creative movement will provide a pathway to loosen the body and open the vocal chords while bringing participants into their own sound­scape. Chanting, toning, improvisational voice techniques, and song sharing is drawn from personal experience as well as music rooted in American Southern Blues, traditional roots music from New Orleans, Brazil, Malawi, Bulgaria, Cuba, Appalachia, the Balkans, and more. Global Sound workshop allows each participant to explore their individual voice as well as how our sounds relate to one another and how the relationship forms it’s own rhythmic harmonies.
Come, participate and learn to create your own sound palate.

Rising Appalachia brings to the stage a collection of sounds, stories, and songs steeped in tradition and a devotion to world culture. Intertwining a deep reverence for folk music and a passion for justice, they have made it their life’s work to sing songs that speak to something ancient yet surging with relevance. Whether playing at Red Rocks or in rail cars, at Italian street fairs or to Bulgarian herbalists, this fiercely independent band has blazed a unique and colorful path across the globe. 11 years into their movement, Rising Appalachia believes that the roots of all these old songs are vital to our ever evolving soundscape. Led by the collective voice of sisters Leah and Chloe, and joined by their beloved band - percussionist Biko Casini and bassist/guitarist David Brown - Rising Appalachia is a melting pot of folk music simplicity, textured songwriting, and those bloodline harmonies that only siblings can pull off. Listen for a tapestry of song, clawhammer banjo tunes, fiddle, double bass, acoustic guitar, djembe, barra, bodhran, spoken word, and a wealth of musical layering that will leave you called to action and lulled into rhythmic dance simultaneously. It is both genre bending and familiar at the same time. Proudly born and raised in the concrete jungle of Atlanta, Georgia, sharpening their instincts in the mountains of Appalachia, and fine tuning their soul on the streets of New Orleans they have crafted a 6-album career from the dusts of their passion. In 2015 Rising Appalachia founded the Slow Music Movement, to help maintain an independent musical spirit in the face of such a fast-paced world. They are creatively committed to keeping their work accessible at the local street level as well as expanding to larger audiences abroad, and have continued to maintain autonomy by self- managing, recording, producing and creating, and directing their work.
They are greatly honored to do the work that they do.
