Nickomo and Rasullah Clarke are both experienced workshop leaders of Voice and Song, they share an interest in the diversity of global harmony and singing styles. Together they have also created a large selection of Dances of Universal Peace particularly
those based on the Celtic tradition.
Nickomo is a musician, singer, composer and choir leader and has become particularly well known for his ‘Harmonic Temple’ pieces. Easy to learn and beautiful to sing, they arose initially from the wish to create pieces like the chants of
Taize, but encompassing more spiritual traditions and musical styles. Over the course of time they have embraced rounds, canons and other polyphonic
forms and have included affirmations in the English
language as well as mantras.
The ‘Harmonic Temple’ itself is the magic soundspace created by the inner and outer harmonies of the group. Nickomo leads choirs, singing groups and workshops. He arranges a lot of material for choirs and has produced several books of
music and CDs.
Rasullah has been a Dances of Universal Peace teacher
since 1987 and this has made her aware of the way people from all spiritual traditions of the world use song to touch in with their deepest selves for prayer, praise and healing. As a trained counsellor she combines song and dance with ritual. Like Nickomo she shares a passion for the land and nature and celebrates the Celtic festivals of the year with song, dance and ritual using themes from different Celtic customs associated with each of the festivals. Rasullah follows the Druid path and has finished a course of study with the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. She
leads local choirs with Nickomo, she is an
astrologer and sees clients for personal consultations.
She is an avid gardener and spends most of her free
time in the veggie garden!
In 1998 Nickomo launched the Unicorn Natural Voice Camp in the South West of
England - see www.unicornvillagecamps.co.uk.
This event is continuing to grow in popularity.
Nickomo and Rasullah lead workshops on Dances of Universal Peace and harmony singing in the UK and abroad.
