About a cappella
A cappella, the definition being “without instrumental accompaniment” describes a purely vocal performance. This music genre has been steadily gaining in popularity over the last 10 years partially due to the NBC series The Sing Off, where 10 a cappella groups from High School to professional level battled head to head for the title of the ultimate team. From The Sing Off, a cappella got its first shot at major exposure and viewers were able to see just what groups were doing with their voices only. What a cappella groups can do is undeniably distinct. Typical instruments involved in A Cappella music are vocals, vocal percussion, beatboxing, body percussion, live looping and instrument mimicry
