Join Nicki Wells for a vocal workshop and performance of ancient Indian music.
Nicki Wells, the artist behind singer songwriter TURYA, will guide you through a journey of self-discovery by exploring the power of your own voice.
In this special evening, you will be guided through breathing exercises, body stretches and vocal exercises to open up and free the voice. You will then be taught an ancient vedic hymn called Shloka. In the last part of the session, you will be invited to lie down or sit in meditation as Nicki will take the gathering through all nine Shlokas for you to experience the power of this ancient, healing musical medicine.
*Re:Centre and Nicki Wells have partnered up to offer you this event with 100% tickets’ sales to be donated to the Charity Mind.
Nicki Wells is a Singer Songwriter and Composer. She is the artist behind T U R Y A (www.turyamusic.com) whose music takes on influences from Indian Classical to cinematic film music to English Folk. The name T U R Y A comes from the Sanskrit word Tooriya, meaning a state of pure consciousness or in more subtle terms, the silence one experiences after sound.
T U R Y A released Ocean, her debut album last summer, produced by acclaimed producer and musician Nitin Sawhney. She also released her first EP Echo this year and is currently working on her second studio album.
Using her name Nicki Wells, she has focused on other projects like composing music for theatre, films, documentaries and contemporary dance. Her compositions have been part of shows that have performed in venues like Sadlers Wells, The Royal Opera House and won the Amnesty International human rights award in Edinburgh Fringe Festival (Aakash Odedra’s dance show ‘Je Suis’ for which Nicki composed the music for).
Nicki Wells has now just released her first album of Indian Classical healing music under the form of Shlokas, ancient Vedic Sanskrit hymns. This is for the promotion of wellbeing which Nicki is passionate about. The music promotes a meditative temperament and has a profoundly healing effect on the listener. Nicki’s workshop and performance on the 7th December will demonstrate this. Album’s of Shlokas by Nicki Wells can be purchased on the day of the event or through her website www.turyamusic.com
