Dopplers, founded by Astrid Vang-Pedersen in 2009, is an a cappella group of twelve vocalists originating from Copenhagen, Denmark.
What sets Dopplers apart from other a cappella groups is first and foremost the fact that they sing all of their music, which is in large part music based on grooves, pulses, and beats, without microphones. Choosing not to use a traditional beatboxer to provide vocal percussion they employ the unique approach of incorporating the feel of an underlying beat and percussion into all the vocal melody lines that make up the underlying accompaniment of a song. That being said you will also be able to find beautiful songs with next to no melodic percussion and of an almost classical nature within the Dopplers-repertoire, which exists within a field of many genres such as pop, Nordic folk music, classical, Middle-Eastern and Afro-pop and recently also numerous original songs written by members of the group.
Another compelling characteristic of Dopplers is the imaginative adaptation of performance during the live performances of their music as they recognize that every performance is as much of a visual experience as it is a musical one.
In January 2015 Dopplers released their very first EP featuring music written and/or arranged by members of the group.
