The Djooky Music Awards Winter Edition 2021 has ended

The Djooky Music Awards Winter Edition 2021 has ended, and you can watch the entire event which was broadcast live on YouTube, here.

Our winner is a band called Ulyatau from Kazakhstan, and you can view their interview right after their win, here.

Djooky wants to thank every artist who participated in the Winter Season of the DMA. It is time to Meet The Winners Of The DMA Winter Edition, where I'm proud to point out you'll find Nigerian Tam Ben's song Electric Vibe in 3rd position overall; and in our all new Afrobeat category  Make You Mine by Laydon from Zimbabwe takes the number one spot. 

These are truly exciting times for emerging talent right across the planet, and I have to say, Africa is so well represented and our artists are doing us proud.

I've created a Djook Africa WhatsApp Group wherein we lend support to African talent by working from within the community to boost and promote our own. And we've had some success. The third overall winner in the Winter Edition is Tam Ben from Nigeria, whilst the first winner in the Afrobeat category is Laydon from Zimbabwe. Both of these artists are in my WhatsApp group.

What I'm trying to do now is to push the Djooky weekly charts to encourage artists to go for the weekly cash prizes, thereby organically building this incredible movement exponentially. We've had tremendous success in recent weeks with Tam Ben, who's won the top chart position multiple times. You'll find out more about this weekly chart here

So we suggest you submit your song entry as soon as possible!

Google Meet Singing Workshops with JOETT, and it's FREE!

The purpose of this blog post is to invite you to join me on Google Meet for a FREE Q&A style singing workshop where I don't talk you to sleep, instead, I'll listen to you tell me about your specific singing challenges and then I'll try to sort out your problems on the call...or at the very least, point you in the right direction. 

Do you have external speakers?

If I'm going to run you through a vocal exercise on Google Meet video call to help resolve your vocal issues, it is imperative that your device is connected to external speakers. And as a last resort, if you're using a headset, then it's got to be one headset plugged into/or over your ear, and one headset out. In the case of the headset option, in that particular order, it is so you can hear yourself in good balance. 

Speech Level Singing Technique Explained

Now, before we get into the details of my Google Meet sessions, I'd like to share a transcript from Seth Riggs, the inventor of speech level singing technique. This will help you get a better understanding of the principals of this extremely effective voice training technique. 

So let's begin...

When it comes to singing you have to be able to deliver a song in a manner that best suits the mood and style of that song, and the way you feel about that song. Your success or failure in doing this depends a great deal on your vocal technique, the way you use your voice. The better the technique, the greater the command you have over your voice. And the greater the variety of material you can sing.  

No-matter if you sing pop, musical comedy or opera, there is an effective technique that helps you sing more easily and comfortably, many hours at a time, day after day. It’s called speech-level singing technique, or simply, speech level singing. 

Speech level singing means no matter how high or low; or how loudly or softly you sing, you never do anything that prevents you from singing with the same, comfortable easily produced voice when you speak. 

Even though you use a greater pitch and dynamic range when you sing, nothing should feel any different in your mouth or throat. There should be no tension in your tongue, your jaw, soft pallet or your neck. 

If you’ve taken voice lessons before, or have sung in a choir, your voice teacher or choir director has probably instructed you at one time or another to give your tone more support. Sing from your diaphragm. Let your tone resonate. Place your tone forward. Project your voice…and so on. 

However, such instruction can be confusing and even dangerous. I’ve seen it destroy many fine voices. Singing technique associated with this kind of instruction can only cause your voice to jam up, and your body to become stiff and rigid. 

These kind of instructions have a tendency to talk in result. To explain to you what singing should be, rather than how to allow it to happen. With speech-level technique, you need only concern yourself with one thing when you sing: speech. 

Your tone production must remain consistent—or as we say, connected from the bottom of your range—that is your chest voice, all the way into the extended upper range of your head voice. 

AND you must coordinate that connection from a vocal posture that is exactly the same as when you're speaking comfortably… that is, your speech level. 

With speech-level singing your voice is automatically supported, your diaphragm and all your breathing muscles work the way they should to supply your vocal chords with just the right amount of air. 

You don’t need to push, tighten or manipulate anything to have a strong, clear and dynamically flexible voice. With speech-level singing, your voice is automatically balanced with just the right amount of top, middle and bottom harmonic qualities. 

You don’t sound muddy, dark, throaty on low tones; or slatey, pinched or strident on high notes. 

With speech-level singing your voice only gets better as you get older, there won’t be any loss of range, quality or power; BUT to develop speech-level singing technique you need the training. Or if you’re like most singers, retrain your voice, with the help of special exercises.
