Sonho Meu – mein Traum
We are rewarded with a musical merry-go-around: Persian wedding party, Swahili ‘Lord’s prayer’, infamous Algerian Aisha, and magnificent Cuban Chan Chan (performed first by Buena Vista Social Club). This extraordinary sound spectrum of their performance is completed by percussion instruments like Udu, hand drum or Cajon. Only for mailorder-customers!
Aquqbella takes their audience on a musical tour around the world and connect cultures with each other. They shout whisper and sing about big human dreams and also tell stories about of people, who could both live in your neighbourhood and at the other end of the world. In this fast-moving life the four Aquabella-singers create wonderful oases of the sound and give an insight into foreign cultures and old traditions. They touch brand-new themes, very often themes about human existence.
On “Sonho meu”, their 4th CD with their astonishing versatile and unique voices they easily take you into a world of dreams and sing about happiness, lost dreams and dreams that come true. On the one hand the four a cappella soloists awake a complete Persian wedding party at the moment of listening and on the other hand they sing the “Lords prayer” in Kisuaheli with passion and heart. Completely new in the their programme are their interpretations of “Aisha” (a song from algerien singer Khaled) or “Chan Chan” (from the kuban band “Buena Vista Social Club”).
This extraordinary sound spectrum of their performance is completed by percussion instruments like Udu, hand drum or Cajon. Aquabella stands for beautiful waters that flow, find its own way, ripple carefully, but it will always be the same element. During the last years the ensemble from Berlin developed a diverse repertoire of traditional folk music from all over the world in more than 20 languages. They enthused the audience at home and abroad in more than 600 concerts. On their concert tour 2008 Aquabella had 50 performances in Germany, Austria, Czechrepublic, Benelux, Swiss and Russia.
In May 2008 the ensemble Aquabella was ranked third in the German national a-cappella-competition.
