Sjaella performed their first concert in Belgium at Musica Divina in 2021. The result was a sold out concert and a long standing ovation. Two of their projects are in the spotlight at Lunalia. Le Monde described Origins as ranging from “spirituality to mysticism and sensuality to eroticism”. The ensemble doesn’t steer clear of the big issues in its concerts, whether they be the climate or gender. This is wide-awake cappella that is looking the future straight in the eye.
In Origins, Sjaella focuses on natural cycles that have surrounded us since the dawn of time. In every era, people have experienced the changes in the seasons, the gentle rhythm of day and night, the individual flow of the body, and the transience of rebirth. All of these themes are presented as a unit, which forms a cycle of key concepts from the origin of life to a post-apocalyptic vacuum.
