The voice is boundless
The Finnish word Rajaton translates as "boundless" – a word that
so accurately describes the way this six-voice a cappella ensemble
approaches music. Regularly performing around a hundred concerts and workshops
each year, Rajaton exposes their audiences to the kind of diversity of
repertoire, singing style, and stage presentation that has made them a
phenomenon on the world stage.
Performing at concert halls, churches, jazz and choral festivals, this
distinct group of musicians approaches all styles of music with the same
level of commitment and integrity, making it difficult to imagine an
audience that they could not inspire, or a type of music they
could not make their own. In their native Finland, Rajaton is a bona fide pop phenomenon,
successfully bridging the gap that often exists between classical and
Rajaton has released 13 different albums, their latest conquest being a children's album, Suomen lasten lauluja (Songs of Finland's Children), released in 2012. The last three of their albums were released through the group's own record label, Boundless Records. In the autumn of 2012, Rajaton celebrates 15 years of music-making with one double
platinum, three platinum and eight gold records in Finland under their belt, as their worldwide record sales are drawing near 400.000 copies altogether.
Ever seeking new artistic challenges, the group has grown immeasurably
through collaborations with other a cappella artists, including The King’s Singers and The Real Group,
as well as productions with film directors and choreographers. But it
is perhaps their deep passion for choral art, their generosity of spirit
and their sheer enjoyment of singing that has won the hearts and
acclaim of audiences and critics everywhere. Their energy – infectious;
their ability to entertain and inspire – Rajaton!
