As part of their 2014 tour, Black Voices will be bringing their unique brand of a cappella to Europe, Middle East and Australia including Melbourne and Sydney. This internationally acclaimed a cappella quintet has been wowing audiences with its singing and performances in the early music form of the black oral tradition for over 20 years.

Black Voices's arrangement combines jazz, gospel, pop and reggae with traditional African, Caribbean and English folk songs. The all-female quintet based in Birmingham, UK has performed their unique repertoire for Nelson Mandela, Pope John Paul II, Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the British Royal Family. The members have also shared the stage with greats like Ray Charles, Miriam Makeba, Take 6, Nina Simone and Wynton Marsalis.
