Singing the Bones w/ Lydia Violet & Leah Song
Welcome to our Spring cohort of Singing the Bones!
6 Thursdays : March 25, 2021- April 29, 2021 : 4pm PDT : 7pm EDT
In this live webinar series Iranian-American artist & scholar Lydia Violet and Leah Song of Rising Appalachia will guide you in exploring the cultural inheritance of one of your ancestries through researching myths, folktales, archetypes, musical instrumentation, and song.
By the end of this course you will have a deeper understanding of the cosmologies/myths/stories held within your inherited cultural lineage(s), a deeply medicinal endeavor in our time.
You will also be supported in discovering and learning the nature of mythic truth, cosmology, and psyche. You will explore how story gives way to culture, giving way to root traditions and the expanse of the diaspora. You will delve into learning about the instruments and musical styles singing in your blood. You will see the connections and differentiations across cultures. And most importantly, you will practice reconnection within the diaspora, defining what relationship with your ancestors means for you.
You do not need to have musical experience to take this course!
