What kind of a cappella singer are you?
by Florian Städtler, Vocal Blog founder
Every now and then you have the opportunity to sit down with two of the most important and pleasant things in life: A glass of Italian red wine and a truly remarkable, intelligent and outstandingly beautiful person. On May 29th, this rare event took place and I talked to Kasper Ramström, singer and beatboxer with Finnish cult vocal group FORK in a restaurant near Marburg, Germany.
Earlier, we had found ourselves immersed in an intense discussion with the rest of the band about a cappella stereotypes and typical vocal music personae. Besides some truly earth-shattering insights about the people who run the world of a cappella, the video below includes some super-exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from FORK’s show at Marburg’s “Nacht der Stimmen” (“Night of the Voices”) featuring our Finnish darlings as well Germany’s artistic a cappella pride Maybebop (opener: Peter & The Wolvettes).
In a few days (or when you read it “A few days ago”), there will be a more detailled blog post about “A Cappella Characters” posted on CASA’s website. I would love to have your comments and observations on a (stereo-)typical a cappella personalities, feel free to post them via the comment section, Facebook, Twitter or e-mail directly to email@example.com.
