You might find us popping up in tunnels, churches, foyers, markets, car parks, museums, street corners, restaurants, domes and ampitheatres, rotundas and parks, anywhere where there is a space that can be warmed by the human voice.

Singing in Fiji

“What a wonderful combination: beautiful people on a beautiful island with beautiful food and beautiful singing with beautiful Rachel – what more could you ask. Any wonder I am a three time visitor!”
