Session - what we did

We started with experiments to draw the group together and understand the sound. We sang in unison and then built massed chords from scratch. We played with harmonies using a scale number system, and carried on understanding the songs we worked on by identifying the root (home), third etc.

We sang Ain’t Gonna, Tula Mama and Walkin and Talkin. Amazing group!

Led by Jilly Jarman
