YouYou Antwerpen



Voice artists Hoda Siahtiri and Caroline Daish invite for a hands-on introduction to theYouYou Group voice practice.

In collaboration with Platform 0090, Monty Arts Centre and deSingel. An initiative of newpolyphonies.


Club Zaghareed could be called a workshop, but it is so much more: a meeting, an initiation, exchange, a celebration of many voices. In three hours, you will get a step-by-step initiation into the way the Brussels-based YouYou Group has been working for years around the Zaghareed, the Arabic name for a loud, sharp trilling sound that many women in North Africa and the Middle East, among others, utter to express joy at festive events. With respect for tradition and a sense of new connections, Hoda Siahtiri and Caroline Daish will take you on a journey.


There is eating, talking, voices are warmed up, simple improvisational exercises lead to surprising forms to make the voice sizzle and vibrate. Knowledge is shared with and between all present.


The Club Zaghareeds were originally developed in 2014, by the Brussels-based YouYou Group, a vocal ensemble experimenting with vocal heritage techniques in times of diaspora, migration, globalisation making film, installation and performance.
