GIG DIARY

SONGS

‘Drawing influences from around the globe and across the centuries, Brighton’s Vocal Explosion is an extraordinary sonic experience’
-Phil Jackson, BBC.

Vocal Explosion Brighton are a choral ensemble with a powerful, distinct sound of many colours; evocative harmonies layered over strong rhythms and shimmering soft melodies with spiritual textures.

At the heart of their repertoire are the inventive, bold and earthy compositions of founder and musical director, Juliet Russell. Drawing on chants, laments, Gypsy songs and music from around the globe, Russell deftly meshes contemporary rhythmic arrangements with age old harmonies. The result is an engrossing global mosaic of the ancient and modern.

We often play with world class musicians such as: Dirk Campbell, who performs his enchanting world music with the duduk, fujara, kora and bagpipes; and Paul Johnson, a multi-instrumentalist and regular musician for The Globe. Performances range from guest appearances at the London A Cappella Festival, site-specific work, both urban and in the landscape, festivals throughout the UK, and our own sellout gigs.

‘Vocal Explosion Choir delivers masterpieces, making beauty from sounds, conveying narrative and emotion with no need for translation. This rich and powerful choir transcends language barriers.’
– Euton Daley, Director, Pegasus Theatre, Oxford
