Although I lead many songs, I invite everyone who feels so moved, to share something that they can easily teach or is familiar to most of the group. It’s great fun to see what pops up as we share various songs and ride the wave of joyous music. These gatherings invite participants to move and sing out, and at other times, to sink into a mellow, relaxed and peaceful state.
Overall each Songs for the Heart is a co-creation among those who come and what is triggered during the gathering. Expect to laugh a lot along the way :<) It’s designed to be user-friendly and fun regardless of one’s musical background or skill level.

"I have immensely enjoyed singing in groups with Sotar — each time, without fail, the experience has been one of joyful sharing and creative collaboration. Sotar leads with a fabulous repertoire of heart-centered songs, along the way sharing stories from his musical journey that inspire and encourage each of us to realize our own musical path."
“Sotar is enthusiastic about music and welcoming to all! He is passionate about building community through song. Don't miss an opportunity to participate in Sotar's song gatherings.”
"Experiencing a Sotar song gathering is like rolling the clock of your life back to a time when creativity and fun were encouraged. Take an hour or two of the stressful modern world and trade it in for a time to sing your favorite songs, learn new songs, be with your favorite friends, and make new ones. Enjoy.”
"Even for the vocally-challenged, these events offer the participant an opportunity to sit back and enjoy or stand up and lead. No rules, no pressure...it's all good and you are bound to find some tunes that tickle your core."Ananda Bhakti
