King’s Barbers are set to have their voices heard on the other side of the world when they sing in Goa.
Ely’s award-winning boys’ acappella group – the King’s Barbers – are being given a once in a lifetime opportunity to sing in the south-western Indian state.
Music lovers from across the globe are expected to attend the Ketevan World Sacred Music Festival at Unesco Heritage City in Old Goa later this month.
Peter North, founder and director of King’s Barbers, said: “The King’s Barbers sing everything from timeless classics to contemporary acappella songs.
“The group was founded 27 years ago not only to keep boys singing through the voice-change, but also to introduce them to different performance styles.
“Former members have sung in some of the most important and successful groups in the acappella scene, including All the King’s Men and Out of the Blue.
“This visit to India is an amazing opportunity for the boys to meet musicians from other cultures, to sing with them and to immerse themselves in the Indian way of life.”
