Perpetuum Jazzile

Perpetuum Jazzile is a Ljubljana-based, vocal jazz choir. They are extremely popular in Slovenia. They have also played to sold-out crowds in Czech Republic, Croatia, Germany, Canada and the USA. Last night they put on a concert at a high school in Murska Sobota.

In addition to a few traditional Slovenian songs the group played a mix of songs that ranged from jazz to gospel to pop. They even put in a nice Christmas mix of Nat King Cole and Mel Torme. I was probably one of the few people in the crowd that knew the words to the Christmas medley.

I found this next video, from 2008, of the group performing Toto's Africa. They did the same number last night it brought the house down.
