KUCHING – For the first time in the Borneo Jazz, there would be a capella group performing. The group called SLIXS, comprise of six vocal virtuosos from Germany who effortlessly imitate a whole band. They create a variety of sounds and noises that eclipses 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.
The sound of the Slixs – with its whisper, its click of the tongue, its noisy breath, its twitter, its didgeridoo-like voice – has memo and recognition value. “The experience of a cappella groove” – that is probably the most appropriate and coining description of what the unsuspecting listener may expect. What the lady and the five gentlemen are performing onstage cannot be captured by well-established music styles like Pop, Soul, R&B or Jazz. The Slixs’ ever increasing high profile is creating an outstanding reputation of the band as one of Germany’s best and most charming vocal ensembles.
They won the CARA-Award Best Jazz Song in 2008 and the Ward-Swingle-Award in 2006. SLIX will take the stage on the first night. Don’t miss this rare opportunity of seeing a capella group perform at your doorstep!.
