A miracle of the social media age – six jazz vocalists first became long-distance fans of each other’s multi-tracked videos on YouTube. Later they decided to join forces, never mind their countries of their origin (France, Sweden, Canada, UK, USA!).

There are no stylistic limitations to Singer Pur’s repertoire as they sing anything performable by voices.
Concert: 19. or 21. July (to be announced in March 2021)
