WorldSong

WorldSong is a choir with a difference: stunning harmonies, uplifting songs, inspiring rhythms, music for the soul. We sing harmony songs from the world music repertoire, specialising in traditional songs from Eastern Europe, Africa, Britain, America and beyond. With harmonies drawn from centuries-old oral traditions; from gospel to work songs; from haunting chants to rousing celebration — there is something here for everyone. Listen to some sound clips of the choir in action.

WorldSong celebrates the richness of the human voice by singing without instrumental accompaniment. Our repertoire of songs is drawn from cultures where singing and dancing are as natural as talking and walking. The choir was formed in 1997 by Chris Rowbury with the basic philosophy that everyone can sing. From small beginnings, the choir is now around 50 strong and continues to be run on natural voice principles by talented vocalist, composer, choir and workshop leader Una May Olomolaiye.

WorldSong has performed extensively, we now have in excess of 200 songs in our repertoire, many of which have been especially arranged for unaccompanied voice by Chris Rowbury. Our latest CD Made From Silence feature one composition and several arrangements by our irrepressible Una May Olomolaiye!
