A cappella group to feature at Borneo Jazz

KUCHING: Borneo Jazz 2012, which will be held from May 11-12 in Miri, will for the first time feature an a cappella group.

One of Germany’s best and most charming vocal ensembles, Slixs, formerly known as Stouxingers, comprise six vocal virtuosos who effortlessly imitate a whole band.

“They create a variety of sounds and noises that eclipse almost every assemblage of instruments. Their self-created or chosen pieces of music are a true homage to the love of life.

“A luscious and homogeneous sound, brilliant solistic presentations, amusing moderations and artful compositions make the Slixs concerts an a cappella experience that offers unequalled opportunities,” said the Sarawak Tourism Board in a press statement yesterday.

They won the Cara-Award Best Jazz Song in 2008 and the Ward-Swingle-Award in 2006.
