Camerata’s unique sound is guaranteed to impress the audience.
When you hear Camerata performing live, you get an impression of standing in front of a large symphony orchestra, which is composed of the most exotic instruments.
Camerata makes musical works of art without using any musical instruments. They create the music with their own voices, immersing the audience in their enchanting reality.
Suddenly, you realize that the sound is observable and the images can live on stage.
“Camerata is unique in using their voices” (“Der Landbote”, Winterthur).
“With their vocal range, charming intonations and virtuoso vocals, Camerata replaces the whole orchestra with their voices and awakens the mystical musical reality” (“Nürnberger Nachrichten”, Regional daily newspaper).
Today, the group's repertoire consists mainly of their own music which is characterized by Slavic folk music, natural harmonies and the authentic modes. The repertoire also includes classical music pieces, orthodox music and jazz. Camerata mixes ideas both from traditional and modern music making the sound original and memorable.
The group consists of six vocalists with voices ranging from soprano to bass.
Camerata has released five studio albums.
In 1997-2006 the group held the International Festival “Camerata Invites Friends” in Minsk.
Each show of Camerata is accompanied by theatrical background. The vocalists illustrate musical dramaturgy and rhythm with choreographic performance. Sometimes elements of mysterious performance resemble truly shamanic rituals.
“Only a few bands can create a new sound, and Camerata is one of them. Their arrangements are the vocal symphonies and great sound”. (Don Gooding, Mainely A Cappella, USA)
Sold-out shows have become a norm for Camerata wherever they perform.
