ABOUT

ZAVO is a BRAND NEW 6 piece a capella group forming in Bournemouth to take on and create contemporary and jazz interpretations (reimaginations) of both new and old classics for public performance both on stage and my favourite flash-mobs.

Influences include Take 6, The Hi-Lo's, Pentatonix, Vive!, Exit 245, Swingle Singers and Accent to name a few.

Influencing arrangers include Kirby Shaw, Deke Sharon, Alex L'Estrange and Mark Kibble.

From Bass, Baritone or Beatbox to soaring Soprano, ZAVO could be the outlet for your creativity.

Experience of live singing, collaborative arrangement and transcription an advantage but if you've got great tone, timing, a superb ear and a bit of a vocal gymnast, we'd love to hear from you and talk ideas!

Why "ZAVO"?

A "Zavo" is the term for a vocalist with a vocal range that extends beyond traditional vocal sections, through the use of falsetto predominantly. That and it's just an awesome word.

If your ambition is to be a forerunner in the a capella scene, please get in touch.

All the Best,

James

If you too love exploring musical avenues - Change up's from Jimi to Stevie, Outkast to Plan B.

From reviving Cole Porter classics to modern contemporary interpretations, ZAVO is all about Big bold sounds, crisp close harmonies, and great rhythms.

Commitment is key from the start but if this sounds like your name is all over it, please get in touch.
