‘Black Voices successfully blends the melodies of Europe and the rhythms of Africa that break down barriers. My first experience of Black Voices rekindled the spirit of my ancestors. Long live these positive females with their beautiful Black Voices’                  Jackie Guy, Choreographer/Artistic Director – Harder They Come

BLACK VOICES was co-founded in Birmingham, England in1987, by Sandra Francis and its Managing Director Carol Pemberton MBE.

Filling international concert venues across the world with the exquisite range of their unaccompanied voices and their intricate and soul stirring harmonies - from spirituals and traditional songs to jazz, modern and classical arrangements – BLACK VOICES is simply the most exciting and finest female exponents of a cappella - singing in the black oral tradition.

Black Voices is the leading all-female collective, globally celebrated for bringing their unique form of a cappella music in the Black oral tradition to the world stage. Such is their critical acclaim and respect amongst the music industry, that Black Voices has opened concerts for some of the greatest names in music including Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba and Take 6.
