I'm passionate about creating music which uplifts & inspires people. In addition to performing my muisc worldwide I run 'Holistic Music Workshops' & 'Sacred Sound Events' which empower others to Live their Dreams. I've worked & toured professionally since 1980 & have represented Australia at many international Festivals & events. My music is available on many CDs & printed scores - available from www.sarahhopkins.com . The Harmonic Whirlies : celestial sounding musical instruments I've created which EVERYONE can play are available from www.harmonicwhirlies.com
When I'm not composing & performing you'll find me out walking on the beach opposite my clifftop home in Shorncliffe, Brisbane !
In addition to overtone singing I play Cello, Harmonic Whirlies (celestial sounding instruments I've created ), Choirchimes & percussion. I collaborate with other musicians playing Didgeridoo, Shakuhachi, orchestras & choirs
I was trained as a classical cellist & composer & began composing when I was 16. I first heard overtone singing (sung by Michael Vetter) in 1981 in a park in Bremen & it changed my life ! From then on most of my music has included overtones (on cello, voice, Harmonic Whirlies, didgeridoo, Choir, Orchestra & Choirchimes ).My music is also inspired by 'world music'.
