YouTube beat boxing sensations Voca People to perform live in Dubai
International vocal ensemble, the Voca People, are bringing their innovative and unique sound to the Al Ghurair Centre.
The critically-acclaimed eight-piece combine oral sounds with acappella singing and beat boxing, imitating whole orchestras, making the sounds of drums, trumpets, guitars and musical effects using nothing but their voices.
With over 50 million hits on YouTube, their humorous yet mesmerising renditions, which include audience participation and interaction, will entertain crowds from December 17 for a week. Shows will be at 6.45pm, 8.15pm & 9.20pm every day until December 23.
Having performed around the world in over 25 different countries to an audience of over 1 million people, the Voca People have received huge international praise.
A spokesman for Al Ghuair Centre said: “It’s an absolute honour to have the Voca People performing in Dubai, let alone at the Al Ghurair Centre in Deira. We are thrilled to have them contribute to our Soul of the City campaign whereby recognisable acts have performed in our Central Atrium for free over the past three months.”
The Al Ghurair Centre recently underwent a huge expansion and now boasts 350 stores accompanied by a street theatre feel. They recently a Battle of the Bands competition which attracted around 5,000 people, as well as an interactive graffiti station, other live music and giveaways. Magician Emir Corbo also showed off his skills.
Circus acrobats from Colombia, street musicians from America, and jugglers and magicians from all over the globe are just some of the others to have taken part, as has illusionist James More, who shot to fame on Britain’s Got Talent.
