Vocaldente (DE)

vocaldente has established itself as an internationally sought-after vocal ensemble, winning international competitions and boasting impressive references.

vocaldente won first prize at the Taiwan International Contemporary A Cappella Competition 2008 in Taipei (Taiwan), the Tampereen Sävel 2007 in Tampere (Finland) and the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival 2008 in San Francisco (USA). By winning the world-renowned US contest, vocaldente can call themselves the National Champions of the world’s biggest a cappella competition, becoming the first foreign speaking, and only the second ever non-American winners.

Founded in 2004 by members of the Hannover Boys Choir and the Hannover University of Music and Drama, vocaldente have evolved in just five years from passionate suburb singers to virtuosic vocal globetrotters. At more than 100 shows, performances and concerts in the past year, the five committed singers have explored their home country Germany as well as wider Europe; extensive tours and fleeting trips have led them numerous times to the US, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan.

Unlike other a cappella groups, vocaldente don’t rely on technical devices, amplifiers and special effects. Their passion is an art almost lost in the entire vocal scene: performing a cappella without microphones, conveying the feeling and verve of 80 years of musical entertainment in its most authentic way – purely acoustic, taking a cappella back to its proper roots. However, their repertoire is equally contemporary, as well as covering pop and rock music from the past eight decades: Taking their audience on a captivating journey from the Roaring Twenties to the latest pop hits, vocaldente create a completely unique new form of a cappella that’s directly connecting with the audience, touching them deeply and delighting them utterly.
