What is Circlesinging?

 Circlesongs is an immersion in sound, creativity, and community. It challenges all participants to play, sing, invent, imagine, and explore. In the circle, we make music, build trust, take risks, and embrace life to the fullest. Every song, every voice has a place in the circle.

The improvisational singing technique called Circlesongs was created by Bobby McFerrin over a  lifetime of groundbreaking vocal exploration. The spontaneously composed choral pieces we call Circlesongs invite the deepest listening and sensitivity, using all the vocabulary we know — call and response, global rhythms, soaring melodies, lush harmonies, funny noises, invented language, silence, prayers, and laughter. .

The Joy of Circlesongs

Sometimes on Wednesday’s, Bobby is joined by the Bay Area group Motion in a studio where they simply get together and “make stuff up,” creating music together.

Circlesongs creates what Bobby refers to as “Audience Art”, the audience comes in to the venue and we all play, we work with each other and listen to each other and join in as a community.

Making music on your own or together is, simply put, a joyful experience.
