Israeli theater around the world: Mayumana and the Voca People

Because the Israeli entertainment industry is rocking the world! This is why we wanted to write this short blog post: To honor two amazing casts that, by traveling to the most recondite places in the world, are showing everyone the amazing talents Israel has and the breathtaking shows these talents can give.

Today, we want to go beyond the amazing Israeli TV series you can easily find on Netflix. Today, we want to give the stage to a bunch of people who deeply deserves it, and we want to start this article by giving them the biggest and longest applause. Meet The Voca People and Mayumana, two Israeli performing groups who are doing amazing stuff. Are you ready to get your mind blown? Here we go!

The Voca People

The Voca People, founded in 2009 by Israeli actor Lior Kalfo, is an Israeli ensemble performing vocal theater combining acapella vocals with a number of other singing techniques to reproduce -only with their voices- the sounds of an entire orchestra.

They have performed in many different countries, all over the globe, such as the United States, Israel, a big part of Europe and some countries in Latin America.

According to themselves, they are “(…) full of energy and bursting with comedy and fun, this international phenomenon features more than 80 all-time favorite hits from Madonna to Michael Jackson via Mozart! No instruments, no sound effects – just eight incredible, talented singer-comedians”.

You can check out their upcoming shows on their website, here, and if you want to enjoy some of their most amazing YouTube hits, you don’t even have to leave this page… because here they are!

We promise you three things: You’ll laugh, you’ll dance, and you’ll be surprised by their amazing talents!

Mayumana, founded in 1996, define itself as an Israeli dance troupe combining dance, song, and percussion. When they first started, many people compared them to Stomp, but throughout the years, Mayumana has shown their uniqueness with successful shows all over the world.

The name of the group comes from the Hebrew word for skill: מיומנות. And how right they were when deciding their name, because they are -indeed- very, very talented. Only between 1996 and 2007, the guys of Mayumana visited over 30 countries and performed over 5,000 shows, blowing the minds of over 3.5 million people!

Mayumana uses elements that most would consider trash and create outstanding melodies with them, creating rhythmic sounds, remarkable songs, and extraordinary patterns. But it doesn’t end there… all of this is combined with spectacular dancing and singing skills. Mayumana is simply amazing, and they are always putting the name of Israel in the highest place, wherever they go to.
