  Ensemble Ningenensemble_ningen_and_me_2_11_10_soukuramochi_resized.JPGEnsemble Ningen have performed with Dana Hanchard at various concerts and peace events in Japan. They joined her in Hiroshima where they celebrated her birthday singing for the world peace gathering held every year on August 6, the anniversary of the atomic bombing of the city and 1st nuclear holocaust of the Atomic age. 'Ensemble Ningen members have sung  with me at shrines, temples, churches, jazz clubs and orchestral concerts. Most core members still remain from the early days in Japan. These young professionals have formed a beautiful vocal collective actively supporting each other in challenging times. They continue and are encouraged to make music with the intention to bring balance into their lives and the world.'

 from SONG OF ONE live online workshop  for Evolver learning labs  Intoduction to Sound Therapy with Alexandre Tannous

Guest: Dana Gae Hanchard  

For our fifth session, Alexandre's guest will be the vocal artist and composer Dana Gae Hanchard. Dana will present "Song Of One," a fundamental practice in grounding, unifying and resonating life force energy with increased awareness and focused intention through singing. "Healthy singing belongs to no category, style, or culture of singing. It comes from a body integrated with mind and spirit. A healthy voice is the voice of one who can express from one’s heart freely.  

"Song Of One" encourages you to explore a meditative singing practice and will give you techniques to bring about greater freedom, ease and vitality in the body and voice. You will find improvement in your musical and rhythmic skills by learning songs and movements designed to bring you into greater harmony within yourself and the environment." 

Dana will offer instruction in:  

Anchoring yourself in the cosmos through the breath  
Training the release of the body-mind in order to allow full vibratory resonance in the voice and response in the "body bell"  
Singing with better balance and poise, increased support, greater dynamic range and musicality  
Singing to the smile behind the eyes and into all cells; this activates the pituitary gland and also the soft palate "lift" necessary for fuller release and vibratory resonance  
New songs that will make you feel more life energy, songs you will remember for a long time to help lift you along the way
