The Men of the West appeared at the Denmark Festival of Voice and presented for the delight and puzzlement of audiences a variety of acapella songs ranging from the haunting beauty of ancient Georgian table singing to original songs of the quotidian rituals and trials of being a man in today’s world. Our aim was to extend expectations of a men’s choral group. Apparently it was reported that we were ‘gentle and sad, even sweet, but also powerful and unmistakeably male’. So perhaps we succeeded. See some photos here.
