Music in cafés, on street corners, on boats and beaches, VH Festival 2012 brings the finest performers
Join us in July for a week of music making on our enchanting island with its blend of French flavours,
golden sands, and thriving local culture.

Princess Royal Centre for Performing Arts
Thursday 19 July 8pm
For 90 minutes, one of Europe’s hottest vocal groups takes a thrilling journey: from Brazil to the Congo, from the United States to Europe, from 1920s jazz to contemporary hip-hop. Their five massive personalities bring together groove, beatbox improvisation, jazz, trip-hop and chanson.
Ommm is also a show, generous and spicy. They sing, dance, spin around, and skip from dark emotions to humour. It’s a world where the voice is everything: human, passionate, and always changing.
The Blue Notes Jazz Quartet will be playing in the foyer of PRCPA from 7:30pm before Ommm's show.
Tickets for all events go on sale 14 May.

Waxybox, Ommm's resident beatboxer grooves with anyone looking to try beatboxing or improve their skills.
