World Singing with Sofia Paschou

Learn how to sing as part of a group through listening and empathising with those around you to create rich and beautiful harmonies. The songs come from traditions where singing comes naturally and is a vital part of everyday life. All songs are taught by ear in the original language, and the workshop will follow this tradition.

Sofia trained at Archiin Athens and LISPA, and is also certified in classical singing. She has composed music for various plays in the UK and Greece, most recent being the “City of Darker Skies” with the London Bubble. She has worked with many different singing styles (traditional Greek, Bulgarian, Georgian and Mongolian overtone singing). She had the privilege to work with Helen Chadwick in the Royal Opera House and Dessisslava Stevanovain of the London Bulgarian Choir.
