Ayla Nereo Workshop – Glastonbury, UK
A singing and songwriting workshop with Ayla Nereo to open your voice, receive song, and create!
“One of the most poignant voices currently floating about… A poet, musician, visionary, and mystic, Ayla Nereo is an otherworldly artist who shares the fruits of her soul.” ~ The Huffington Post
“[Ayla’s] relationship with the earth is imprinted in her music… expansive and intriguing.” ~ Billboard
A workshop that leads us into a deeper understanding of our own voices, how to receive and create music, find words and shape lyrics, follow melodies into whole songs, and PLAY with our own creativity.
Through trusting our ability to listen and create sound, we learn to trust our own intuition and power to be creators of our lives. Each time we sing, we find new edges, and by leaning into them we can see who we are becoming. We sing for the Joy of it. And we sing for the Need of it, to make offerings of sound that can ripple out and make beauty and good for this planet.
You don’t have to be a songwriter or singer to join us! All are welcome ~ this is a workshop to open to the creative impulse that wants to come through You.

Ayla Nereo‘s voice hits straight to the heart. With an array of loop-pedals by her side, she builds layer upon layer of vocal melodies into fierce, sweeping harmonies and weaves syncopated threads of guitar, kalimba, piano, and percussion into each live performance. Her lucid storytelling and lyrical imagery are water for the thirsty soul; words and sounds that crack open the heart, and embody the many folds of our own selves.
Raised on opera, 60s folk, and psychedelic rock, Ayla’s music touches both the timeless and modern; where prayerful circle songs, mantra, and roots music meet ancient beats and folktronica. Crafting an immersive soundscape we can dive into, Ayla’s performances are each their own inspired journey; an enchanting and poignant experience that holds you by the heart and doesn’t let go.
“Can you fall in love with a sound? Can love itself be expressed in sound? Because if so, this is surely that sound…”
