Women Voice & Beat

Women Voice & Beat is a meeting of two female percussionists, creating contemporary meaning for rituals and tribes. Singing and drumming are among the primary tools for expressing emotions and intangible states of soul and mind. This project focuses continuously on the creative process, with the aim of establishing one consistent space and plexus of life and music.

The music of Women Voice & Beat is a fusion of ancient and contemporary sounds arranged for Vibraphone, Bendir and Voices. Jewish songs, Arabic music and North African drumming as well as classical music and traditional Slavic folk songs all contribute to the very colourful background of two female percussionists:

Ayelet Ori Benita and Kasia Kadłubowska.

 Project is supported by Soroptimist International 10629460_670939873021675_3762621232059864743_o
