The Encounter of Vocal Heritage (2016)

This ambitious project brings together the most incredible vocal traditions. This amalgamation - not exactly a fusion, since each tradition is still perfectly recognisable - showcases Albanian iso-polyphony with its plangent quality, the cantu a tenore of the Sardinian countryside, Beko blues singing of southern Madagascar, Finnish yoik and rune singing and the Belgian récit chanté.

Voxtra will surprise you!
