(Nashville, TN) Known as one of the most spectacular vocal jazz and a capella groups across the globe, Perpetuum Jazzile will take the spotlight this summer in celebration of its first North America tour.  The critically-acclaimed Slovenian ensemble is popular for its powerful rhythms, rich harmonies, unparalleled creativity, and special blend of pop, jazz, gospel, blues, Brazilian bossa nova, disco and funk.  

Perpetuum Jazzile performs mostly a capella with up to 50 members.  There are also vocal percussions, a human beat-box, and an incredible array of drums, electronic beats, and choreographed hand movements that simulate storms.  Perpetuum Jazzile’s powerful repertoire includes arrangements of songs by Toto, Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind & Fire, Billy Joel, George Benson, and more musical legends.

The vocal orchestra performs in English, Italian, Portugese, Spanish, and Slovenian as well as other languages. Perpetuum Jazzile President/Manager Bostjan Usenik calls the North American tour a career milestone and priceless challenge for the vocal ensemble. "The time is ripe for us to take on the USA and Canada, the world's most demanding concert market, and from where PJ derives most of our international fans," he says. " "Not only do we offer innovative vocal renditions which have moved such top artists as David Paich, David Crosby, Allee Willis (etc.), PJ also brings to North America unanticipated rich sounds and an energy one would expect only from a rock concert. We hope you'll come to our concerts, en masse, and prepare yourselves for PJ's mesmerizing vocal ecstasy!"

Perpetuum Jazzile is in its 28thyear and is celebrated as YouTube’s most watched a cappella groups with more than 20 million hits.  The award-winning vocal ensemble is also ranked among the website’s Top 40 Music Videos.  Its remarkable history and distinct musical styles have generated sold-out concert crowds, raving reviews, and a series of hit songs. An international phenomenon and leading force in a cappella music, Perpetuum 

Jazzile’s artistic director Peder Karlsson, the founding member of The Real Group from Sweden, has worked with renowned artists including Bobby McFerrin, Van Morrison, and Sir George Martin.  The group has toured in Austria, Italy, France, United Kingdom, Brazil, Croatia, Argentina, Ukraine, Serbia and the Netherlands.
