We welcome adults of all genders and sexual orientations: your trans+ or gender-non-conforming voice is equally valuable here 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️
We welcome singers and non-singers alike. Whatever your level of singing experience or confidence, singing is your birthright and you'll be encouraged here!
Adults of all races, faiths and backgrounds are welcome here. We sing mostly in English, and we don't sing religious music, but some songs are gently spiritual in flavour, and some have been shared by our African siblings.
Drop-ins and regular attendance equally welcome

Hi, I'm Assamiya (pronounced A-sa-mee-a, she/her). I'm the Creatress of Heart Song Collective and the leader of our weekly Song Medicine sessions. I'm passionate about the power of embodied singing for our physical and mental health and wellbeing, and the connective magic of singing together in community. This is my soul project. And you and your voice are so welcome to join us!
You can learn more about me here, about Heart Song Collective here, and all the details including how to book your ticket for our weekly Song Medicine events are here.
I really recommend it! A non-competitive, non-judgmental space where everything is welcome, including my own sometimes out of tune-ness. The day or two after, I am so free and bouncy.
It's just wonderful! I know I'm gonna really enjoy it and I know it's gonna make me feel really lovely. I often feel euphoric afterwards. Very connected with everyone who is there, very calm. Like I’ve used my voice in a really powerful way.
Assamiya holds a brilliant space for queer folk, understanding the importance not only of pronouns (which we're invited to include on our name badges) but of gender neutral explanations of relevant body parts. It's wonderful as a non-binary human to not be gendered by the size of my larynx!
