Capucine Lafait-Hémard

It’s the full moon dear witches! For the last episode of the year, Sabrine Kasbaoui welcomes Capucine Lafait-Hémard, artist, “passeuse-chanteuse”, voice explorer and coach in vocal maieutics. Together they discuss spontaneous singing (a technique that allows you to disconnect from your mind and be in your body), singing circles and vocal maieutics. You will also find Jeanne Burgart-Goutal’s Les pensées écoféministes, who will present the text Woman and Nature by the poet Susan Griffin. Also on the program: the luminous Lunar Saga by Stéphanie Lafranque aka la Tisanière Tatouée. Enjoy your listening, and may this last full moon be sweet to you!
