Tutor Su Hart
Su Hart is a dynamic choir leader and singer-songwriter who has performed and taught internationally for over 20 years.
Su was brought up in the music of the Methodist church and the folk clubs of N E England before doing an Arts degree in Oxford with vacation times spent busking around Europe and S.America. She has had many musical travels, collecting songs from Scotland to Scandanavia, from New Zealand to Bhutan. Since 1993 she has made many visits to the African Rainforest in Cameroon, to sing and live with the Baka Pygmies. The collective spiritual singing of the Baka women has informed and inspired her musical development. This led to setting up the acclaimed world-music band Baka Beyond in 1993, melding African rhythms with Celtic melodies. The band continue to perform internationally.
Su currently directs three UK community Choirs, and the London Rainforest choir, performs with Baka Beyond and other musical projects & solo concerts as well as composing with Sian Croose for women’s voices.
