Founded in Padua in 1994, the Vocalica developed a repertoire of songs for solo voices in the style of "contemporary a cappella". From scat to swing, from rock to blues, from pop to Italian singer-songwriter music, also of their own composition, always trying to maintain originality in the arrangement and interpretation. They have participated in seminars with some of the most prestigious international vocal groups and teachers (Swingle Singers, Jonathan Rathbone, Roger Treece, The Housejacks, Ciro Caravano, The M-Pact and the Real Group). In 1998 they opened for Rossana Casale; in 1998 and 1999 they opened for the American Housejacks.
