Bobby McFerrin comes to Warsaw

Bobby McFerrin, a legendary vocalist, called one of the wonders of the music of world, will perform in Warsaw on May 13 as part of a European concert tour.
McFerrin, who has a four-octave vocal range, is the winner of ten Grammy awards and an author of one of the most well known songs of the late 20th century - "Don't Worry, Be Happy".
In Warsaw, the artist will present a special project „Circlesongs” taking the stage alongside two members of his groundbreaking a cappella group Voicestra: tenor/vocal percussionist David Worm and bass Joey Blake.
The three masters will together lead Circlesongs, choral pieces based on irresistible grooves, spontaneously composed each night and sung by a 12-voice ensemble of local singers, and sometimes by the whole crowd.
"I want to bring audiences into the incredible feeling of freedom that I get when I sing," McFerrin said. “I want everyone to leave the theater and sing in their own kitchens the next morning."
A cappella singers, beatboxers, and vocalists of all genres claim McFerrin as an inspiration. The jazz and classical worlds celebrate his innovative technique and spirit. McFerrin's exhilarating vocal vocabulary -- call and response, global rhythms, soaring melodies, lush harmonies, funny noises, invented language, silence, prayers, and laughter – remind the audiences how much fun it is to make a joyful noise.
Bobby McFerrin has sold 20 million records, and his work with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Chick Corea, the Vienna Philharmonic and Herbie Hancock have made him into a true ambassador of classical music and jazz.
