KATIA MAYEN

I'm a singer-songwriter, composer, sound practitioner and I lead workshops on voice and meditation.

I have always been interested in sound and my main passion is singing and creating vocal harmonies, something I have been doing from a young age, with my family, as part of choirs and on my own with my loop machine. Early in my career I worked as a professional theatre actress and even there, most of my parts involved singing.

I grew up writing and composing music, playing the piano and singing my own compositions, and I'm now a full time composer and singer-songwriter ( Kat May, La Louve Records)

In 2015, I started my journey into a more spiritual side of sound. I discovered sound baths and gong baths, which were part of my yoga practice with Kwali Kumara, and I was amazed by the power sound could have on one's physical, spiritual and general wellbeing, so I decided to explore it on a different level. I started learning different meditational and healing vocal techniques: Sacred Indian Chanting with Ustad Narinder Singh, Tibetan overtone with Jill Purce, Vocal toning and Sacred Sound with Anne Malone and I've finished a year long course on Vocal improvisation and ritual singing with Briony Greenhill. I am now very interested by Gabrielle Roth's 5 rhythms dance training.

Today, I compose music for pop-folk projects, meditation music, films, theatre and advertisement, I lead workshops on voice and meditation ("Sing | Dance | Meditate" / "De la Source a la voix") and Sacred Sound sessions at the Mind Body Spirit Festival (London, Birmingham). I continue my exploration of sound by training at Berklee College of Music in Critical listening and Art of mixing to deepen my knowledge as a sound engineer and producer.
