At the annual Voice Mania festival, the artists prove what a versatile instrument the voice is. Without a single piece of technical assistance in sight, they produce creative worlds of sound ranging from harmonious melodies to daring yodels.
Passers-by will listen in amazement to the sounds that ring out on 7 November from Kohlmarkt along Graben all the way to the Ringstrassen-Galerien. Cheerful drinking songs, emotional ballads, Italian madrigals, pop songs and classical arias are performed from shop balconies and church galleries. Anyone who would like to be personally serenaded will get an "A-cappella to go" and even be accompanied by a song for a part of the way.
The festival’s main acts include the trio "Tiharea" from Madagascar with their throaty mix of panting and polyphonic sounds. From Brazil come the voice and body percussionists "Barbatuques", who caused a furore with their perfect sounds in the Hollywood blockbuster "Rio 2" (20 November, Theater am Spittelberg).
The Polish group "Me Myself and I”, which grooves its way through every variety of jazz, hiphop und reggae, is noted for its limitless vocal inventiveness (25 November, Theater am Spittelberg). Performers from Austria include the "Beat Poetry Club", "Chakrabreaker", "Gesangskapelle Hermann" and "Wiener Blond" (all on 13 November, Metropol). The sparkling finale is provided by "Lange Nacht des A Cappella" (6 12., Metropol).
