8-14 SEPTEMBER, 2023


A joyous week of singing and yoga led by internationally acclaimed choir directors, Tony Backhouse and Anders Nyberg.  Staying at the tranquil Narasoma retreat. An oasis in the heart of Ubud.

The Singing


Born in Sweden, Anders Nyberg is also a citizen of South Africa. His arrangements are inspired by African rhythms Swedish folk,

choral works and jazz, and infused by a sense of connection - to each other and the world we live in. Anders studied choral conducting at Stockholm Royal Music Academy. He has led many singing adventures around the world, including celebrations to mark the end of Apartheid and he co-wrote the oscar nominated best foreign film, As it is in Heaven

“When trying to put into Anders’ workshops… the word alchemy comes to mind.”


NZ born Tony Backhouse is a legend in the Australasian a cappella movement. Tony’s been travelling the globe since the late 80’s

directing singing workshops in Australia, NZ, North America, the UK and Europe. He’s led many song tours to the USA immersing people outside the tradition in black gospel music. And taken tours to Samoa, Fiji, Bali, and remote outback Australia interrelating with local communities through music.

‘...Tim Finn says he is quite simply the finest vocal arranger he knows and Sam Neill reckons he’s a national treasure.’

The Yoga
