We would love to invite you for a special collaboration. Josh will be playing his Kora while Eddy will be giving healings - helping you to relax, let go and release what is needed to gently settle into a state where you can begin to heal.
From the age of 8, Josh Doughty learnt how to play his first piece of music on the Kora, a West African 21-string, harp. His initial lessons started at his home in Wales with his father Adam Doughty. Watching and listening to the melodic instrument as a child, Josh developed a fascination for the Kora and a desire to master this unique and complex instrument. Having a natural talent for the Kora Josh was soon noticed by the Master Kora musician, Toumani Diabate and in 2007 Josh was invited to Bamako, the capital of Mali, to study under Toumani in his home. During this time Toumani became Josh’s teacher, mentor and friend. Since travelling to Mali Josh has collaborated with a number talented musicians from Africa to the UK. Josh has toured England and France, playing to large audiences at festivals such as Womad, Small Nations, Shambala and Boomtown, as well as to more intimate audiences at weddings, private functions and renowned venues such a Ronnie Scotts. In 2010 Josh had the pleasure of working alongside the African Community Partnership Group in Swansea, performing at the Waterfront Museum in aid of Black History Month.
Eddy is a Shamanic Practitioner from London and founder of Street Spirituality. Through his understanding and deep knowledge of Shamanic practices and how they can be integrated into the modern world, he believes that it is a merging of the Ancient and the new that will now help society push forward into greater awareness of the self. Also trained in Yoga, Tantra and Reiki - Eddy brings the elements of calm and love from these practices into the more tribal tradition of Shamanism. Through the use of Shamanic practice, we can form direct relationships with our own spiritual allies and aspects of ourselves that can guide us to a higher consciousness. It is through the tried and tested, millennia old, use of Shamanic tradition that we can begin to heal that which we have been told we cannot.
Eddy also runs Men’s Groups throughout London, focusing on remembering the beautiful and potent traits of Masculinity through ritual, conversation and community.
