Welcome

Su Hart is a dynamic choir leader and singer-songwriter who has performed and taught internationally for over 20 years.

Presently Su is the lead singer with Afro-Celt dance band Baka Beyond, she currently directs three UK community Choirs as well a composing for women’s voices.

Brought up in the music of the Methodist church and the folk clubs of N E England with an Oxford degree in Fine Art, Su has had many musical travels, collecting songs from Scotland to Scandanavia, from New Zealand to Bhutan.

Since 1993 she has made many visits to the African Rainforest in Cameroon, to sing and live with the Baka Pygmies. The collective spiritual singing of the Baka women has informed and inspired her musical development. This led to setting up the acclaimed world-music band Baka Beyond in 1993, melding African rhythms with Celtic melodies. The band continue to perform internationally.

One Heart Global Music Exchange – Charity

DONATE

Global Music Exchange

Global Music Exchange (GME) was founded after a visit to the Baka Pygmies in Cameroon. After seeing a television program about them, Su Hart and Martin Cradick fell in love with their music and went to visit them in their rainforest home. Back in 1992 their life seemed idyllic in the forest, but they have been shocked at the racism and abuse they suffer when by the roadside. As they are pushed out of the forest more and more, they are forced to spend more time in the roadside villages.

GME (named “One Heart” by the Baka women) encourages self-worth and respect for the Baka, and other indigenous people, through their music, dance and crafts.

We record and promote traditional music and use royalties for development projects decided by the communities themselves.

We aim to help them adapt to the modern world whilst also maintaining their rights to live a traditional lifestyle on their ancestral lands.
