Bara Vox

 Bara Vox

Mixed Vocal Jazz Sextet from Stockholm, Sweden.

Bara Vox is a Swedish vocal group founded in 1995. Since then they have made several radio and TV performances - both locally and nationally - and performed on several CD-recordings, both as backing vocals and with their own material. Their first record has been played on radio stations all over the country and has also been featured on a Swedish hit list with the song "H?r ?r jag hemma" ("This is my home"). Bara Vox is touring throughout Sweden and performing on everything from festivals to conference dinners (but has also performed on such unusual occasions as "after ski" and a football-game between Sweden and Austria). They usually do about 40 performances each year. In style it's easiest to compare Bara Vox with groups like "The Real Group", "Vox One" and "The Swingle singers" but they have created their own style.

They also perform a lot of our own material. All songs are arranged by members of the group. Bara Vox sings a mixture of contemporary a cappella and vocal jazz. Bara Vox consists of six singers between 20 and 30 years of age, all from ...stersund in Sweden. All have some kind of musical education and most also work as musicians in other constellations. Their common link is the love of music and the interest in what is possible to create with the human voice only. The human voice or "Vox Humana" was the original name of the group, but when a Swedish political party with the same name started to make headlines, they realized it was time for a change. Everyone had gotten attached to the "Vox" part of the name though, and since they couldn't call themselves only "Vox", they choose the name "Bara Vox" or "Only Vox" which is the English translation.
