Every spring the entire Moscow is singing! A Cappella International Festival takes place in the city as a part of the Moscow Seasons street events. Solo performers and vocal groups from all over the world are singing at the most unusual concert venues across city. This year I was lucky to see and photograph 3 great bands who are very different from each other and each of them has their unique style.
The Alley Cats, a sunny Doo Wop group from the sunny California. All of their shows are absolutely amazing, full of great sound, positive vibes and tight harmonies. They are performing hits of the 1950 and 60s. It is always a pleasure to see them and listen to their music. Audience loves this band so much, that’s why they won a fan favorite prize!
Just 6 is an amazing band from Johannesburg, South Africa. They are singing some traditional African tunes which sound very unique and some kind of psychedelic. The band is appreciated for their crisp vocals and unforgettable melodies. These guys walked away with the Second Place Prize. 🙂
Six Appeal Vocal band from Minneapolis, USA won Grand Prize this year as well as last year. Their shows are always very dynamic and energetic, their sound is electrifying and fresh. Both the band and audience are having much fun singing along and dancing!
