Everything began in 1989, as a game in their leisure at Havana Arts University, when they simulated the sound of different instruments with their voices. This way and, little by little, they went tuning their throats to the sound of the metals, the percussions and the strings and created the unique sound of Vocal Sampling, a unique ensemble with international acclaim, whose concerts have been enjoyed by audiences around the world. This summer, Vocal Sampling is performing in Lithuania for the first time!

Already their debut album “Una Forma Mas”, released in 1993, has attracted the attention of such music stars as Bobby McFerrin, Peter Gabriel and Paul Simon. In 1996, Vocal Sampling received an exclusive invitation to perform at the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival, and in 2000 they performed to a packed Royal Albert Hall at the BBC Proms. Cambio de Tiempo, released in 2002, was nominated for three Latin Grammy Awards, and the band’s touring geography has taken them to major music and jazz venues in Europe, Asia, Latin America and North America.

In 2020, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Vocal Sampling, the singers have decided to try a new approach with a concert with a symphony orchestra. The ensemble has performed this programme with the Orchestra of the Lycee de Havana in Cuba and with the Tonkünstler Orchestra at the Musikverein Vienna and St. The orchestra has performed at the Musikverein and Pölten Festspielhaus in Austria.

“The most impressive a cappella group to appear on stage in recent years… Their voices are flawlessly pure and there is not a single detail missing from the overall impression,” “At first you think they are using phonographs or that the real musicians are hidden off stage. But they are not, and even the brass and flute parts are made up of just six voices!”, “a real talent for creating magical moments out of nothing”, “the warmth and inventiveness of the band made this the most memorable Latin show of the year so far” – that’s what the press all over the world is saying about Vocal Sampling.
