Balkan Choral

With Nabila Schwab

Choir Practice

The Angels of Monbrillant’s repertoire reflects the group’s encounters, desires, changing environments and other day-to-day disruptions. The choir also considers itself an integral part of the Grottes neighbourhood, where they perform in various events and festivities. It’s open to all those wanting to explore their voices and mix with a group, regardless of experience – though the choir does have minimum requirements for singing with others.

The pleasure of singing…and working!

- posture adjustments

- warm-ups and vocal exploration

- learning polyphonic songs

- awareness of sound and rhythmic pulsations

- attention to musical ear and commitment

Nabila will give 2 workshops in  2018 :

Originally from Geneva, Nabila started out in the world of show business at the age of ten (theatre, dance, music, masks). She first discovered Romanian music through learning the flute with Marco Jaccoud, a Geneva musician. She continued her research into Balkan music thanks to a meeting with the American trumpet player, Dave Douglas, with whom she formed a duo.

Coming back from the States in 1993, Nabila founded a choir, called the Angels of Monbrillant. She continues to develop music teaching based on Balkan music and vocal experimentation.

Furthermore, she regularly runs singing workshops in various schools and institutions and is currently collaborating with the Ateliers d’ethnomusicologie by introducing modules of Balkan songs into primary schools
