Tradewinds is a women’s a cappella group from South London who’ve been singing together for more than ten years. They sing songs from around the world and styles from jazz to folk, pop to mediaeval, adding new songs to their repertoire all the time and mixing them together with old favourites. They sing at festivals, such as Chorus on the Southbank and Voices Now at the Roundhouse in Camden, local community events, at concerts or on demand. They have shared concerts in London with the Georgian Women’s Choir, Camden Voices and the Hasty Nymphs. They have been to France several times and sung with L’Air de Rien in and around Tarbes and to Germany to meet and work with Choriander.
Choriander are an a cappella choir from Aachen in Germany led by Rostia Chudoba who sometimes accompanies them on his guitar. Rostia developed his passion for a cappella music singing in a highly regarded youth choir from the Czech-Polish border and has been continuously educating himself in guiding vocal groups and arranging songs. Choriander use inspirations ranging from classics and traditional folk music as well jazz and pop, aiming to find the right balance allowing singers to develop a relaxed singing of challenging a cappella music.
They initially began for the joy of singing together then over the last fifteen years their confidence has risen along with the size of their audiences. They bring warmth and humour as well as depth and intensity to their concerts.
