Your Authentic Voice
Short description: An exploration of who you are and what you share with community through story, song, and movement. This 3-hour workshop will include exercises in expressive arts, improvisation, songwriting, yoga, and vocal health.
Longer description: What is a sound that only you can make? What are the words that embody what you have to say? How does your story relate to someone else’s? Starting from the framework that everyone is a musician and artist and your presence is an offering to community, this 3-hour artistic retreat will focus on building a deeper understanding of oneself and one’s relationship with others through work in music, movement, visual art, poetry, body awareness, and creation. Special emphasis will be placed on improvisation, songwriting, and yoga as it relates to the human voice. We welcome participants from all artistic disciplines and walks of life. All activities will be opt-in/opt-out.

Hour 1: Interdisciplinary Improvisation with Rafael Natan (They/Them/Theirs)
Based in Boston (USA), oboist, violinist, and songwriter Rafael Natan actively seeks to facilitate discussion about what it might mean to sing/teach a song in someone else’s language and what it might mean to find your own voice without coopting someone else’s. They co-organize the Interdisciplinary performance series Weird Folk Fest , a festival that highlights the work of musicians, artists, organizers, and culture workers who have been overshadowed through systemic cis-white heteronormativity. As an educator, Rafael has toured, taught and recorded with the folk chorus, Northern Harmony, in England, France, Switzerland, and Italy. Additionally, they have been a guest workshop leader at the Ojalá community center in Lliría, Spain. Currently, they teach songwriting in the Boston Public Schools and hold a teaching fellowship with the Boston Children’s Chorus. Rafael holds an MM in Contemporary Improvisation and a BM in oboe performance from New England Conservatory.
Hour 2: Songwriting with Anaís Azul (They/She)

Peruvian first generation immigrant Anaís Azul is a Boston and San Francisco (USA) based singer-songwriter, composer, and teaching artist. Azul writes music that is in conversation with jazz harmony, classical melodies, and Latin American singer-songwriter traditions. Their songs are bilingual (Spanish and English) and about mental health, queerness, facing harsh realities in the world we live in and finding inner peace in spite of chaos. Formerly of diaspora pop band Cathartic Conundrum , Azul currently tours and performs as a solo artist, with Petting Kazoo , and as an ensemble member of social justice choir Voices21c . Described as “stunningly honest and vulnerable,” her artistry engages with music as a tool for community building, cross-genre collaboration, and collective healing.
