Ears Listening to Feet: Nasima Selim und Ayumi Paul
Sufi Breathwork and Sounds of Islam
Ears Listening to Feet is a series of gatherings curated by Ayumi Paul as part of The Singing Project. By inviting guests from a variety of fields of knowledge, she opens a process of learning from each other that aims to discover new patterns and rhythms between seemingly unrelated areas of research. Each gathering concludes with a sequence of vocal exercises and singing together.
