The human voice conveys so many different emotions and is
unbelievably versatile. In mimicking instruments, Acappella has
journeyed through many styles and imitated a multitude of sounds.
We could site numerous examples, including the most recent
album, "Radiance," which begins with the emulation of a didgeridoo.
A few years back, Acappella, along with their back-up singers,
simulated the THX intro, commonplace in modern movies. It was
astounding to hear - just as Zac's vocal percussion solo elicits
an "I can't believe I'm hearing this" response.
Check out this choir that was assembled for this Honda Civic film in
the United Kingdom. It is fascinating!

working fine now.]
