Black Voices @ Central Hall, Back Lane
Jun 30 @ 19:30

Black Voices

is an all-female a cappella collective.

www.blackvoices.co.uk/video

Formed in 1987 Black Voices has gained a reputation as Europe’s finest female a cappella quintet.

For over 25 years the ensemble has captivated global audiences with their singing and performances in the black oral tradition – an early music form that is based on the ancient folklores and story telling of Africa and the Diaspora and which has impacted on the development of classical and more recent music genres such as blues and jazz.

Drawing inspiration from that rich tradition, Black Voices has developed a unique repertoire and arrangement of spirituals, traditional African, Caribbean and English folk songs, jazz, gospel, pop and reggae as well as a fusion of contemporary and classical styles that has earned them world wide recognition as a performance and teaching company.

 

Promoted by U3A Wymondham and supported by Creative Arts East

“…unrestrained and inventive…this album goes places that trad-Americana never thought to reach…and on the way it will pull a wider audience under its spell.”  FolkWords
