A MIND BLOWING MUSICAL EXPERIENCE

 

Using only their voices and innovative live looping techniques, international vocal sensation FreePlay sings you around the world without leaving your seat. New York jazz, UK pop, European classical, Indian ragas, Brazilian samba… FreePlay does it all, a cappella. Partners in music and in life, Juno Award nominees Dylan Bell and Suba Sankaran delight in sharing their unique and virtuosic a cappella style, both in person and virtually, with performances in over 20 countries across 6 continents in support of their album Go Back Forward.

WHAT IS LIVE LOOPING?

Live looping is the recording and playback of a piece of music in real-time using either dedicated hardware devices, called loopers or phrase samplers, or software running on a computer with an audio interface. Musicians can loop with either laptop software or loop pedals.
