Today FORK is one of the world’s leading professional, contemporary a cappella groups, touring the globe with magnificent shows that fearlessly combine an impressive range of performing arts. Theirs is a music, stand-up, theatre, dance and light show that all adds up to an elegant night out with a fine-tuned sense of humour. The group also throws in a good measure of love and self-irony into the mix – leaving it up to the audience to determine precisely where to draw the line between love and irony, and who’s laughing at whom…

Nomadic infuses jazz, gospel, soul, RnB, and even Carnatic influences into their sonic creations, creating performances that are as dynamic as they are.
