We all remember them. Worldwide, for more than half a century, the London based Swingle Singers have pushed the boundaries of a cappella music. From J S Bach's soulful instrumental works transformed into a vocal universe to the recreating of folk music expressions, these talented seven young singers host SEMFs early music scene for the first time. Don't miss the Swingles' unique and rich sound world, as well as its different, innovative and fascinating approach to historic and traditional repertoire. Powerful and surprising!
