Voz en Punto is “one of the world’s great vocal sextets,” says VocalEssence Artistic Director Philip Brunelle. “This amazing group of singers has a 25-year history of celebrating the musical culture of Mexico, past and present, as well as performing music from around the world. Their blend, their flexibility, and their love for music are evident whenever and wherever they sing.”
Don’t miss this Mexican a cappella group live at VocalEssence Presents: Voz en Punto on Sunday, November 15, 2015 at the Ordway Concert Hall. Stay after the performance and join us at the Voz en Punto Fiesta, a fundraiser that supports the VocalEssence ¡Cantaré! education program. You can also sing along with the group, directed by José Galván, at a free Community Sing on November 14.
There are many well-known Mexican songs around the world, but some say “BésameMucho” has been the song most recorded in different languages and by the most singers in the 20th century.
Voz en Punto performs “Tilingolingo”
This performance of “Tilingolingo” offers a taste of the spirited sophistication, technical expertise and humor on the program. The Jarocho sound comes from the state of Veracruz; it has African roots and lively rhythms. Such songs are played by traditional Jarocho bands consisting of harp, Mexican guitar and melody guitar. “Tilingolingo” tells of the joys of tapping your feet to the beats.
