A feast for all afficionados of a cappella, a must-see for jazz lovers, a unique opportunity for existing groups to learn the tricks of the trade from the masters.
One of today's finest a cappella ensembles,The Real Group shot to fame with their stunning arrangements of the great jazz standards and a unique sound. By now, their original compositions, too, are sung by groups and choirs all around the world.
Five time grammy award winning ensemble The Swingle Singers, defined the vocal sound of a generation, crossing over between classical music and jazz
Using their voices as an instrument has always been a trademark of theirs and so the collaboration of special guest Roxorloops, as well as the presentation of their new album "Ferris Wheels" is highly anticipated.
The Manhattan Transfer has been at the forefront of vocal jazz for several decades. Their collaborations with Gene Puerling, with Bobby McFerrin or Gilberto Gil are legendary, while their album "Vocalese" (in collaboration with
Jon Hendricks) garnered them 12 Grammy nominations, a record only topped by Michael Jackson's album "Thriller" !
