Song Catching with Yanti was born out of the idea that we all have the ability to sing and that it is vibrational therapy from the inside.

Under the leadership of Yanti, local vocalist, you will have the opportunity to lift your voice with songs of the Ubuntu Choir Network taught in the oral tradition. Ubuntu means, I am because we are. Together we will explore short, simple, meaningful songs, sounds and vibrations from within us as well as jump into the world of improv.

Yanti is passionate about singing together. Many people have songs in their hearts and yet are afraid to sing. Yanti believes everyone can sing and that there is freedom in singing.
