Why Not Kum By Yah?

Since the very beginning of humanity and civilisation, music has been used to inspire and uplift, be a siren song to action, and tell stories that ultimately stimulate great change in the hearts of humankind and the actions of leaders. If we are going to solve the wicked problems of our day, such as homelessness, mental illness, substance addiction, and domestic violence, what better way is there than through the power of music and rhythm.

Be prepared to join in for the chorus as Tammie encourages you to join together to ‘Come By Here’ and help those in need. 

In this session, you will discover:

  • The forgotten history of Kumbayah
  • How music supports human bonding
  • 3 ways music can heal and transform
