Thanks for sropping by. Please have a read and get in touch if you have any questions. So excited to make this a reality.
My name is Grzegorz Karnas. I am an improvising vocalist and the moving spirit behind The Voicingers Festival - my brain child born in 2007. Primarily a Jazz Contest for Singing Musicians meant to promote the most gifted young jazz artists from all over the world, the Voicingers Festival evolved into the Intercultural Gathering for Music, Creativity and Expression - a gathering place where people meet to enjoy the art of improvisation. Every year is so different, as so many come to Voicingers to connect and to experience unique beauty of music which becomes a multicultural mix of diversityand vulnerability of participants.
Due to the growth of its following In 2017 the Voicingers Festival began its transformation. This is where more and more people were involved into organizing workshops and concerts in numerous locations in the world (Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary, Ukraine, France, England, China, Korea, Latvia, Bangladesh) lured by the idea of building their own traveling stage in times dominated by the demands by commercially oriented markets. We call it Voicingers On Tour.
Our main focus remains on presenting a wide range of acoustic, electric and electronic music genres while creating space for personal growth through music workshops about improvisation. This is where the idea of Radio Voicingers (RV) was born.
Although the Voicingers Festival's headquarters are located in Żory, Upper Silesia, Poland, RV will broadcast from any location the Voicingers laptops equipped with our custom made playlists editors find themselves at.
WHAT'S THE PLAN?
Free from commercials, talks, politics RV will help you discover new areas of music without being disturbed. We believe that music creates a multidimensional bridge between people and can be a very powerful tool that changes people's lives.
Our goal is to share with you a multicultural mix of music that is a hard core of what we find the most intriguing, entertaining and valuable. We want to make sure that you can discover new areas in music without being disturbed by advertisements and news feeds. The corner stone of the RV playlist (around 2000 tunes so far) that has been selected for all to enjoy reflects the love for music of all people who create the festival and the radio itself.
RADIO VOICINGERS COMMUNITY
With the RV broadcasts the performers whose lives were transformed by music as well as the RV listeners will be able to shape our playlists and share their favorite music piece by piece directly to you. While listening to Radio Voicingers, you will be able to check the song name, author, cover and lyrics on the radio page. We hope you will enjoy what you hear on this radio as much as we enjoy it ourselves. Let's build a space for music filled with respect for its power to transform lives into better ones.
WHAT DO WE NEED MONEY FOR?
From months we are working to run RV. To run a Radio that plays music for free for a thousand people for a year, we need 8,900 euros. This covers:
- radio engine
- radio broadcasting software
- stream hosting, servers
- playlist editor
- programmers wages
- website for listeners
- music royalties
We are extremely happy to start this new project and hope that you can find Radio Voicingers as your place.
