Bobby McFerrin, more than anyone else, has ventured into vast unexplored vocal territories, whether through his solo performances, his improvised choir Voicestra, or the thousands of vocal tracks which make up his stupefying album VOCAbuLarieS. Winner of ten Grammy Awards, he has reconciled pop music and exacting jazz, having fun barefoot in the world’s finest concert halls and inspiring whole new generation of a cappella singers and the beatbox movement. The love story between Bobby McFerrin and Montreux kicked off in 1982, long before the release of the hit “Don't Worry, Be Happy”. This New York artist has played Montreux a total of 11 times, with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Chick Corea or even in a tribute to Charles Aznavour. This will be his first performance in the intimacy of the Montreux Jazz Club.
