La Loba (DK)

La Loba is passion, maturity and rawness combined.
Based in Aarhus, Denmark, this vocal group features three experienced singers and conductors, Kristine Poulsgaard Tjørnholm, Merete Gry Jacobsen and Andrea Krüger Holm.
We sing an eclectic repertoire of contemporary music, ranging from pop and nordic jazz to folk and newly composed pieces. Our songs lead the audience into a multi-coloured landscape with both tender sunsets and grand horizons. The music may appear beautiful, groovy, or edgy, but always focused on personal interpretation of the intent in text and music and always arranged specifically for us. We work with dissonance/harmony, timing, sound, timbre and intonation. Using the fact that we are just three singers, we unfold both tightly composed pieces as well as improvised parts, which thrive from our desire to explore the possibilities of a vocal trio.

The voices are full of emotion and honesty. Whether it’s an inspiring rhythm or heartfelt song, the members of Terrablue voices have embraced their vocal painting since joining forces in 2015.
Terrablue voices are a vocal ensemble with 12-16 singers based in Sandefjord/Tønsberg in Vestfold. The ensemble was founded by the conductor and artistic leader, Kristina O. Gidefeldt in 2015, as a project during her Master studies of rhythmical choir direction at RAMA. The idea was to develop the “”intelligent choir”” through vocal painting and improvisation.
The ensemble combines improvisation with written arrangements. Much of the written repertoire are arranged and customized for the ensemble. Terrablue voices explore the use of microphones with loops and other technical devices and are crossing borders according to style and genre. The concert format is new and innovative, including the audience in the performance.
Terrablue voices has high ambitions and wish to stand out nationally and internationally with their music and performance. The ensemble currently works with music written and arranged by Nordic artists and performers. We also work with parts of the material in the studio to be able to release the music in the future.
