Dani is a real member of the Sunshine Coast Ukulele Fest family as she has run her highly popular singing workshops at each of our festivals since our first one in 2014.
Dani has been the Musical Director of the wonderful New World Rhythm choir on the Sunshine Coast since 2011, teaching and directing the choir in songs and harmony in over 40 different languages, sometimes even in English.
What attracted Dani to conducting a World Music choir is her love of cultural diversity and the emphasis on tonal shapes and dynamics that can transcend language barriers and resonates with all those that hear it on soul level. “It makes you stop and think about the meanings of; and the stories behind the words.” She loves seeing the smiles on the faces of the choir members as together they create a sound that can give you goosebumps.
Dani’s dream is to take the choir on tour- “to all those countries that are the source of our beautiful music.”
Don’t miss Dani’s singing workshop during the festival. It’s a fabulous experience.
