“Back in the early part of the year I had a little inner nudge to tend to something that’s been mostly neglected for a very long time. To sing. When I saw Shakti Sings, a big diverse tribe singing to honour the Earth, it felt like that was the kind of singing I needed to do. So I found myself at a monthly rehearsal back in April, and again the following monthly. Completely wonderful, emotional, communal, uplifting… Such a lovely bunch of people, such a thing to be enveloped in sound, and to find a voice waking up in me and it find a place in a sea of voices, and to sing heartful, elemental, life-affirming songs.” Stu McLellan
