Eleven women sing exquisite unaccompanied harmony songs from across the globe. Celebrating the richness and variety of the human voice, Vox Mondiale’s acappella singing gives expression to sumptuous harmonies from many different cultural traditions.
The Vox Mondiale repertoire ranges across a variety of moods and styles, including an English folk song, up-beat gospel, a Brazilian love song to break your heart, a Serbian dance song, a Croatian lullaby, a US song telling the story of a famous woman who saved hundreds of slaves, and a healing song from Haiti.
Vox Mondiale was formed in December 2007 by musical director Chris Rowbury and eleven women from around Stamford, Lincolnshire. From their love of harmony singing and desire to explore different singing techniques and styles in more detail, Vox Mondiale are building a unique repertoire of songs from a wide range of cultures and traditions. Singing in three and four part harmony, and always in the original language of the country of origin, Vox Mondiale delight audiences with voices that are guaranteed to send shivers up your spine.
