Danu Fox
Danu Fox is a musician, singer, shamanic practitioner, teacher and ceremonialist. Danu sang and played the piano from an early age, growing up on the coast in Portishead, UK. After attaining a degree in Music and German in Wales Danu worked as a teacher and later as Music Education editor for Oxford University Press.
In Oxford Danu began to sing in earnest and secured a scholarship to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London on their Postgraduate Diploma in Jazz. Professional jazz performance work followed alongside music work in many different community and educational settings. She was funded to do a national tour with her band Hara to launch her first album First Time Ever.
While in London another passion was discovered in the form of North Indian Raag and four years of lessons were taken with the late Pandit Chandan Misra of the Misra and Sahai families. Leaving Oxford for Cornwall her connection to the land led into the study of shamanism. This took her music right back to its roots; the open vowels of melody in the voice and the heartbeat of the drum. This produced three albums: Yemaya, People of One Earth and Albion. Cornwall also created time lecturing in Jazz for the Truro jazz degree.
Simultaneously Danu had, at the summer festivals, been developing a voice workshop focusing on toning, open voice, improvisation and Raag, now known as Heartsong. In 2009 Danu was invited to be a guest lecturer for the College of Sound Healing teaching Raag and now shamanic song.
Besides the voice Danu also plays Native American flutes, harmonium, piano and percussion. Her music fuses jazz, Indian music and pagan/Celtic sounds and is very much about singing for and of the land. She runs retreats and the Earth Singer training programme with two businesses - Songbear Music and Heartsong Ceremonies. Danu still lectures in music for Plymouth University as well as teaching privately. Recently Danu has set up Heartsong Sound Healing Practice and classes at various places in Cornwall.
