The festival opening night offers diversity from freshly founded ensembles, to experienced a cappella groups, professionals and coaches: all artists from Neilon, dezibelles, anders, 5pac, Laulaa, UNDUZO as well as Nina Ruckhaber, Matthias Knoche and lecturers such as Kim Nazarian and Morten Vinther Sørensen, present themselves with all their heart and rousing passion for music.

5Pac

Pfeil nach rechts

The a-cappella group ‘5Pac’ was founded at the Freiburg University of Music in 2016 and had its first public performance in December of the same year. Since then, the ensemble has sung at numerous, regional and international concerts, for example at the renowned a cappella festival 'Vocalmente' in Fossano (Italy). This was followed by participation in workshops with some of the scene's driving forces, including Jan Bürger (Maybebop), Kim Nazarian (New York Voices) or Peder Karlsson (Ex-The Real Group). The group is also regularly supported by Julian Knörzer (UNDUZO). Their repertoire consists of a large number of self-written arrangements and original compositions, covering a wide range from jazz to pop to metal rock.

dezibelles

Pfeil nach rechts

Dedicated to a-cappella-singing in all shapes these four young women are specialists in creating sound worlds ranging from classical and international folk music to pop and jazz.

The multi-award-winning ensemble offers an authentic live experience and complements the high musical level of the four singers with apt staging and a pinch of humor. Founded in 2009, the ensemble soon rose to become an important part of the German-speaking a cappella scene. Since 2018, the ensemble has been on the road with a fully professional lineup.

anders

Pfeil nach rechts

German pop music without any instruments.

Johannes Berning, Adrian Goldner, Johannes Jäck, Moritz Nautscher and Florian Clasen show that modern a-cappella singing can be more than imitating instruments, playing covers and oldies as the one about a cactus on the balcony.

Instead, these five gentlemen prefer to write their songs themselves, charmingly taking the audience on a musical sightseeing tour through their student life. They tell their own stories and instantly create catchy tunes.

The band’s credo - catchy melodies and smart lyrics paired with a wink and self-irony. Telling stories from everyday life, sometimes humorous, sometimes melancholic, they sing about love, life, friendship or just all the things that otherwise happen between people in this crazy world.

laulaa

Pfeil nach rechts

laulaa is a vocal ensemble from Berlin. The five women - Fina, Mira, Neele, Josephine and Johanna - joined forces while studying music in 2022. Characteristic for the ensemble is the broad repertoire of self-written or specially arranged songs, stylistically ranging from pop to jazz to songs from the folk genre. Laulaa does without instruments.

In addition to playing with the voice, the women are concerned with pushing the harmonies to the limit and combining the complex possibilities of vocal sound production. In doing so, they are not afraid to take risks and rediscover the versatility and fascination of the voice as an instrument.

Neilon

Pfeil nach rechts

Founded by a group of a-cappella freaks & friends in Freiburg, Neilon became an a-cappella collective including young singers from all over Germany.

More than four years, the group has been grooving its way through a cappella festivals all over Europe and has always infected the audience with its enthusiasm for singing. Neilon has been coached by well-known artists such as Kim Nazarian (New York Voices), Merel Martens (Maze Voices) and Tobias Hug (The Swingles). Their program leads through the jazz and pop history of the last decades.

UNDUZO

Pfeil nach rechts

The multiple award-winning band UNDUZO (pronounced in German: und du so?/ what about you?) has been thrilling audiences for over 10 years now. Not only with their mixture of polyphonic and catchy melodies and a charming and funny stage show, but also with their deep lyrics, great musicality and excellent voices.

These five multi-talented musicians behind UNDUZO create a collaborative, inspiring space to play, spin and try out various ideas - like a picture that is constantly being painted and that gets more and more colorful. In the meantime 4 album productions, founding of a festival, the three-day songwriting workshop "StimmkulTour" for children and youth, performances with the aerial and water artist Linda Sander: the band works tirelessly on new colors and forms, to let themselves and the audience be carried away by it.

Their own style for compositions is primarily based in the facets of pop music, without copying any flat musical and content styles. A-capella is their creative tool: different styles of singing intertwine with beatbox and live-looped lines.

Fabulous Friday

Scandinavian folk tunes meet self-written songs from student life, added by pumping beats improvised out of the moment with a wink and a healthy dose of self-irony. Nature sounds from the north intertwine with slapstick and comedy to form a joint, diverse ensemble, on this evening with Åkervinda, anders and Acoustic Instinct . We celebrate the present, the blossoming of life and the longest days of the year.

Åkervinda

The group released their second album 'Förgänglighet’ in Spring 2018. It was nominated for a Swedish Grammis in the category “Folk music of the year”.

Förgänglighet - the passing of life - is a tribute to all the things that withers away and a celebration of life in summer as well as autumn. Like so many storytellers and artists before them, Åkervinda carries tales of women throughout the ages, embodied in a visual musical live performance.

Children's Concert

The crazy music-comedy duo Acoustic Instinct offer you sounds, stories and much to sing along and participate. These two whirlwinds sweep across the stage with their mega-live-sound-mouth-acrobatics and turn the world into sound. You can hear the ocean, jackhammers, helicopters, unicorns and anything else you can wish for and imagine. This two-man band doesn't need any instruments to start the kids' party - as vocal artists, they only need their mouths, microphones and of course you to start the wild sound journey.

Big Vocal Night

This concert is the festival's heart and highlight. The vocal ensemble Rajaton from Finland, the Beatbox Collective from Great Britain and the award-winning Jazzchor der Uni Bonn show everything that vocal music has to offer on this evening. Intense jazz harmonies and pure joy of vocal challenges between classical, pop, folk and rock summit into a show with breathtaking sounds, energies and pulsating beats. Moderation: Tanja Pannier & Kevin Fox

Rajaton

Pfeil nach rechts

Some vocal ensembles focus on early music, others on contemporary pieces, some groups are devoted to jazz, others to classical choral literature, and well, all of them do Christmas songs. Several try pop, others specialize in a sacred repertoire or sing their own music. Then there is this one ensemble, that simply sings quite everything. Founded in 1997 in Helsinki, it calls itself Rajaton, which means "boundless" in Finnish.

There's no better way to describe the ensemble's approach to music. Their musical backgrounds range from classical to folk, jazz, pop and rock. The three women and three men have performed all over the world, in the U.S., Canada and Australia, in concert halls, churches and jazz festivals, singing everything from sacred music to pop hits. In fact, it's hard to think of a style of music that Rajaton couldn't make their own, or imagine an audience that they couldn't reach with their music. With more than 100 concerts and workshops a year, Rajaton offers a diverse repertoire; Due to their vocal style and stage presence, the group has become a worldwide phenomenon.

The essences of their success - deep passion for the choral art, coupled with the joy of singing and an engaging manner that creates spark.

The Beatbox Collective

Matinee

When our world is changing and we lose focus in the noise, it is silence and reflection that bring us back to ourselves. The concert by the ensemble Sjaella and body percussionist Gabriel Amadeus Hahn is an embrace of voices that seem out of this world. Classical-spiritual music melts into grounding rhythms, touching our insides and bringing us back into harmony with the world and the spiritual.

Sjaella

Homogeneous and individual, light and pithy, precise and free - these facets build the sound of Sjaella. The 6 singers have found their common path years ago, but they are still discovering new branches. They love musical diversity, are open minded and have the courage to stretch boundaries. Their repertoire is correspondingly broad and they find home in a wide variety of genres.

This versatility and the closeness to their audience provide engagements at renowned music festivals at home and abroad, guest appearances on radio and television as well as 1st prizes at international competitions for vocal music.

Conductor: Christian Nagel

 

Wilde Wälder

Pfeil nach rechts

Even if the current program of these four Black Forest guys is limited to the presentation of their all time favorite songs, the topics from everday life in the native forests are well recognizable: wine, women, singing, good food, worrying about money and well-being in general.

With guitars, percussion, chimes and melodica, Georg Stelz, Christoph Hog, Tobias Schwab und Karl Willmann sing multi-voice, about life and suffering in the Black Forest, about the quirky and peculiar residents - humorous and true.

Many familiar songs played on stage, will invite the audience to sing along, e.g. the young classics ‘Sellerie’ and ‘The Singing Travel Guide’ from their current album ‘Stau lau’. But also new thoughts, partly philosophical, will gradually flow into the program: A high-tech washing machine asks about the meaning of life, which has already been fomulated by grandma: ‘Mer kann itt nu (you should not always sit at home), ‘mer muen au mol’ (we need to go to see the Wilde Wälder)!!!
