Perpetuum Jazzile to kick off its new concert tour around Europe

Perpetuum Jazzile to kick off its new concert tour around Europe

The Perpetuum Jazzile choir is a global musical phenomenon – they perform without any instrumental backing and all sound effects are created a capella by the choir consisting of 50 top-class singers. They will present a wide repertoire of Slovenian and European music, following a common vision of a "Europe without Borders". 

As part of the tour, the choir will perform in five European cities, including Budapest this weekend, Lisbon on 14 September and Berlin, Brussels and Strasbourg, provided the epidemiological situation allows it. 

Perpetuum Jazzile also performed the background song in the promotional video of the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU, singing Zdravljica, a poem by dr. France Prešeren, the seventh stanza of which is Slovenia's national anthem. The creative team of the internationally renowned director Mitja Okorn, in collaboration with Perpetuum Jazzle, recorded it in a completely new arrangement. The singers are backed by a symphony orchestra, which makes the arrangement particularly special, since until now, the singers in the choir have always created all their special musical effects a cappella.
