Formed in 1987 by its Music Director Carol Pemberton MBE, Black Voices, based in Birmingham, blends the melodies of Europe and the rhythms of Africa and has gained a reputation as Europe’s finest female a cappella quintet. For over 25 years they have captivated global audiences with their singing and performances in the black oral tradition – an early music form based on the ancient folklores and storytelling of Africa. Black Voices with their distinctive sound, harmonies and stunning stage presence have developed a unique repertoire and arrangement of spirituals, traditional African, Caribbean and English folk songs, jazz, gospel, pop and reggae as well as a fusion of contemporary and classical styles that has earned them worldwide recognition as a performance and teaching company.
