In the new project ,,Voices” the encounter with different musical cultures will serve as the an inspirational “breeding ground”, too. The artists taking part in the SONIQ projects are taking the role of travelers, that get inspired by a new cultural surrounding- but not as tourists, who scratch just on the surface of another culture…

SONIQ was able to gather the avant-garde vocalist Mariana Sadovska, who is rooted in the Ukrainian tradition, the Moroccan singer and multi-instrumentalist Majid Bekkas and the Indian vocalist Sandhya Sanjana for that exciting project “Voices”.
