When renowned Danish a cappella singer Tine Fris touches down in Singapore next week, she will head straight to the studio to start training local singers intensively.

There is no time to waste. She is performing with a cappella group Urban Harmony and The A Cappella Society Singers on May 24, after only a week of workshops and rehearsals.

"I am wicked excited about meeting Urban Harmony and sharing the Scandinavian sound," says Fris, 30, a member of acclaimed Danish groups Vocal Line and Postyr Project.

Postyr Project, for instance, have shaken up the traditional sound of a cappella by adding electronic music to their songs.
