The Voca People - From the Planet Voca (Actually Israel) to Broadway and Beyond

The Voca People have landed off-Broadway at the Westside Theater on 43rd Street in Manhattan.

What? You haven't heard of the Voca People? They're a group of eight singers dressed completely in white and have been compared to the Blue Man Group, a similar group that dresses all in blue paint.

The Voca People sing a cappella and beat box vocal to simulate the sounds of a full orchestra without any musical accompaniment. They claim to come from the planet Voca, but their actual home planet is Israel, specifically Tel Aviv. 

According to Wikipedia, they have performed in: Spain, New York, Italy, France, England, Israel and many other places. They incorporate the public into their songs and change or add bits depending on which country they are in.

The creators, Lior Kalfo and Shai Fishman, envisioned a group of performers dressed completely in white with red lips. 

In Italy they became famous through a clip on YouTube which won over 15 million hits in less than one year and a series of television appearances. 

Here's a video clip from a recent performance that showcases their many talents. Enjoy!
